Dear Beards,
Today is a day about how we are all kings. And though we are all kings regardless of anything else, this website makes it much more fun and gives us an actual "king" button to click. So one might argue that without @mackle there would be no whiskerino and therefore no king. If you have plans for today's theme then I encourage you to execute them as you normally would. However, if you have no plans for today, then perhaps you might print this tiny poster I made and use it in your photo. I won't tell you what to do with your king votes (unless its my birthday), but I am personally saving my king votes for when @mackle uploads later today. Thanks @mackle for all the things you do seen and unseen. This place most definitely wouldn't be the same without you.

@mackle for king.

@yourfavorite - I think this is a worthy cause. Nicely done. I will have to wait until I get back to work tomorrow for a printer but see no reason to not comply...

Ace says:
knowing @mackle though, he probably wont even upload until after 7pm and wont want to win anyways because hes a humble king. but those make for the best leaders so... i applaud your efforts.

Just Jamey says:
I absolutely love this. And I love that it's going to make @matthewmoore uncomfortable. In chat the other day he was griping about King Just Jamey day, and saying that "We may as well king mackle for using his computer to make this whole thing." Well, Mr. Moore, here it is.

Suck it, Moore!! Suck it!! ;)

Thanks for the mini poster. It deserves a nice frame (CLAME).

Just Jamey says:
You know, we could tell @mackle we're only going to king him every day until he gets king. After awhile, he'll have to stop doing the midnight thing.

you are putting your expertise to good use.
well done

Tolleson says:
In a completely expected twist, I've given you a King vote. I had been debating what to do to show how much gratitude I have for the man that created this experience and your idea here is pretty much beyond brilliant.

I'll certainly slap a very deserved King on @mackle as well, but know you have really brought a metric ton of awesome to Whiskerino for me.

mackle says:
Here's the deal.. it's a chicken / egg scenario. True, there would be no Whiskerino if I didn't build this site. But there'd ALSO be no Whiskerino if people didn't participate, comment and make it the awesome thing that it is. It's not about me. It's *never* about me. I don't care for the spotlight and do not want to be seen as a "leader" or a "king" - I'm just another participant that happens to have FTP access to the server.

Regardless, thank you for the nudge but remember WE'RE ALL KINGS. Promise.
