Agreed, great job Joe. I would really like to know where you bought the chip for your brain that allows you to understand table calculations as well as you do.
Thank you Joe for all the help.
I'll second/third/fourth that recommendation! Joe's contributions have helped me immensely, and I'm sure many others would agree.
Andy, and All,
Thank you very much, and I believe I have already received my prize: the many great people I have meet here, and the friendships I have gained here are most valuable.
Every time someone replied to a post with Thanks, I gained joy, a sense that someone was helped, and I am glad every time that happens. I get excited when I see Richard, Andy, Alex and many others helping people find solutions as well. I really enjoy being a part of the community here.
Participating on the forums here is how I am learning Tableau (there is still much about Tableau I do not know), I take each question as a challenge to learn more about how to effectively use Tableau, the comments I post are mostly me learning Tableau, and I try to share what I am learning.
Using Tableau is a joy for me, and by posting on the forum, I feel like I am sharing that joy.
So for me, my thanks goes to everyone who has posted a question to the forum and the developers of Tableau because all have had an amazingly positive impact on my life.
Your selfless contributions are a wonder. Three cheers!
And, as always,
Peace and All Good!

Congratulations to Joe for his help that he gives to the others, and his generous response :)
Best wishes Joe,
If you really want to make Joe happy you just need to keep dreaming up ever more evil problems for him to solve...
Isn't that right Joe?
massive thanks from me also, Joe, you give me the confidence to try things with Tableau that I really shouldn't be trying. Knowing that you (and others, Richard, Andy, Alex etc - you know who you are) are there to catch me when I fall is simply awesome.
Maybe we should make his join month, September, "Joe Mako" month :-D
I want to thank Joe too. You've helped me countless of times, when I asked questions or when I saw your answers to questions I was about to ask! all of your existing contributions are very helpful to people who are looking for answers
And it is not just here on this forum, but he is quite the man on twitter too! @joemako FTW!
I have rarely met someone so generous with his time
Joe will find the solution for you, if it can be explained with plain English, Joe will build it in Tableau
What Joe offers in forums, tweets ... is very valuable and contributes to the overall knowledge of the users
Thank you for your input to society, you give way more than what you take :)
no data or Tableau problem, past or future, real or imagined, is evil enough to scare Joe.
Whenever I try to help with an unanswered question on this forum, there is always danger of Joe beating me to it. Even my timezone advantage is of little use - Joe had been caught posting at 2 am.
I didn't say scare him - I said "make him happy". ;-)
I can relate to the timezone advantage not being enough - I'm in a similar position. I often hesitate to respond on the grounds that Joe will almost certainly beat me to it with a fuller response, so there's no point.
Actually I view it that contributing answers earns me the right to ask hard questions when I get stuck - so on that basis Joe is entitled to a lifetime supply. Who knows, he might need to ask a question himself one day.
