Hi News Community! Just wanted to wrap up things that have happened this year and reflect on the highlights from this year.

I've been lucky enough to be the News Community Moderator, and this next quarter we get to pass the torch to @ButterflyBlu who will be fabulous.
This year was a pretty awesome one for the community and I'm so happy and proud to have met and talked with you all. Here are some of my favorite moments.

The Vingle Elections!

Can I just say this was a super fun event for me and in the community. I got to know @GalaxyTacoCat @quietone @InPlainSight @TessStevens @paulisadroid (previously paulisaghost) even more. We debated a lot about really silly things, and it was an awesome time.
Next year (I hope) we'll be debating things about the real elections. Does Bernie Sanders like hot pockets or not?! WE MAY NEVER KNOW.

The Serious Stuff

We had a serious of really awesome discussions here in the community.
Including: Gun Control, Syrian Refugee Crisis, Cybersecurity, Body Positivity, Feminism, and Politics.
These are hard topics to talk about guys. Can I just take a moment and thank everyone who voiced their thoughts and opinions in a respectful way?! You all are an inspiration.
I really believe that conversations like this are productive and can help make this world a better place. And every time we participate in the conversation, we are helping each other have a better understanding of the world.
I love that about this community ❤️

The Not-So-Serious Stuff

Special shoutout to the funny side of Vingle News Community. @danidee @InPlainSight and @christianmordi for bringing us some pretty spot-on cards including:
And a lot more silly stories!

The Butts

Thanks @mchylang for giving the News Community this gem. British Butts for a Good Cause are always, always, ALWAYS welcome in this community.
Lastly, my year was pretty awesome because I joined Vingle. It was my first time meeting and talking to all these amazing new friends I made.

So happy I could be a part of this awesome community and to get to know you all. Thank you for an awesome year!

If there's one thing I know about Vingle it's that we really love butts XD
Thank you so much, @LizArnone!!! I'm super excited! ^_^
Yay! More news and politics!!!!!!!! Dialogue is the best thing on the planet and I love talking with you guys in this community!!!!!!!
IT was so good to know you too @felicityautumn :D happy to be here @DaivonUnderwood I promise I'm not going anywhere! @MaighdlinS Yeah totally! SO much has happened this year, and at the same time I feel like this is the first year I'm able to voice my opinions about things too. vingle has a lot to do with that, because for the first time I know that if I went against someones thoughts or ideas, it won't get attacked, and we can have a respectful convo!
I feel like this year was a huge year for social issues and not just because of the election but because people are talking about them... and that makes me happy... those that argue we are becoming too politically correct either want to continue being bullies or they never wanted their "peaceful" boat rocked. I love Vingle for the fact that most everyone that comments are very friendly and open and accepting. Even with news stories which tend to find more polarized audiences.
