Please give a Mexican wave for this month’s MOTM: bluemel4! Despite her name, she is never blue, always tactful and has coloured the forum for an entire year: a relatively short time at OBC, but her presence cannot but be acknowledged. She always gives good vibrations and a tranquil tone to the OBC atmosphere, adding her own shade of personality to the already colourful canvas: whether that’s by being an avid reader of the online reviews or simply trying her cool hand at the various off-topic games, though she is always willing to share her status as Queen of the Last Post. She writes reviews too … did you know that? Of course you did, but now you know it again. A real gem, a contributor and a forum friend: please join us in welcoming bluemel4 as this month’s Member of the Month! Congratulations to you, and we’re happy you’re around! :D
