Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Which past writer would you say has had the biggest impact on the current culture of the Board?

-They Call Me Tim

A:

Dear Tommy,

If I had to choose just one, I would go with the writer who first instigated the tradition of giving a silly answer to silly questions (sadly, their 'nym has now been lost to the ravages of time). As it says in our history, this was when "[the Board] was truly born."

Other than that, I feel like Katya and Laser Jock have had a huge impact on Board culture if just thanks to the sheer enormity of questions they both answered. Not counting secondary 'nyms, they collectively answered 8774 questions, which is approximately 10% of all Board questions ever. Other significant writers in shaping Board culture (in my opinion) include Uffish Thought, Dragon Lady, Rating Pending, Sky Bones, Genuine Article and Optimistic.

~Anathema

A:

Dear you,

Prior to The Black Sheep, we didn't talk much about mental illness, faith crises, and similar issues that many BYU students face. I know she's said in the past that she really worked to make the Board a more open environment and I think that's resulted in the Board providing a very positive service to BYU students who are having a hard time.

-Zedability

A:

Dear Tim,

I would like to second Anathema's nomination of Sky Bones, if for no other reason than having the most currently writing menteescendants.
