    Thanking...

      Thanksgiving: Giving thanks in the classroom | Khan Academy

       

      I thought it worth sharing here on the US day of giving thanks. I read many, many forum posts a year. And I must say we as a community practice this technique of asking for help, accepting help and thanking those who provide it. This has somehow evolved naturally, sincerely and without prompting. This forum culture is what I am most thankful for.

       

      Thank you all for both asking and answering all these questions, and doing so in such a supportive way.

      PS: I would also like to thank Ramon for recently taking such an active role in answering questions and sharing his considerable expertise.

            Sometimes people don't believe me that I have the best job in the world.  I wish I could show them this thread.

             

            I am thankful that every day my job is to try and make something better so that people can help one another.  More importantly, I am grateful that I am never alone in this endeavor and that there are so many friends who are always right there with me.

              Thanks for this thread, Shawn. In my mind, you have a wonderful way of pointing out the "invisible elephants", this is one of them and I appreciate you for making this post. And I appreciate all the Tableau users who contribute, whether it's through asking, answering, or sharing what they've built.

               

              Dustin & Robert, please pass on our thanks to everyone in Tableau for making such great software that it inspires us as users to contribute to the community!
