      Hey everyone! We just wrapped up our #ILoveMyRT contest, where we asked a simple question: Why do you love RT? We got great responses from all over the globe. Here are some of our favorite answers:

      "Everyone is so nice, real, and open to each other and the variety of content is entertaining."
      "Because they have such great series, anyone can tell they put all the love in doing them"
      "I love RT and the community because no matter if you have been a fan for 16 years or 16 days everyone makes you feel welcome and loved"
      "The bulk of my closest friends came from the RT community"
      "Well I love pretty much everything, but for me its RT Animation, because as a huge animation nerd/fan, its really awesome that RT is helping people that wanted to make their own animated series with the fund they announced last year, and because of that, we will be seeing more and more animation from cool people! But I still love everything else they do as well. Happy 16th anniversary RT!"
      "It has gotten me through so many tough times, in high school and beyond. The content as well as the community. Some old AH I have watched so much I can put it on as white noise, and I always have a blast at RTX, seeing old friends and making new ones."

      Thanks for participating in our giveaway! Also, shout-out to our contest winners, Roger, Cassandra, Jett, Jeff, and Zachary!
