Pandahut was a community I started playing on when I was just 15 years old. I had just barely gotten my own laptop with money saved up for years. My experiences with gaming at the time were very few. I started playing in May of 2016, but never really got into unturned until august and september. My first hour on RP, I ended up kossing multiple players with a heartbreaker and getting banned. This is a story many people go through, but unlike some others I actually took the time to read the rules during my ban. After reading the rules and coming back I started to have fun in the community. Pandahut allowed me to forget about issues that I had in real life, and I eventually started staffing. I first got accepted as an RP trial mod on January 1st of 2017(Makes it very easy to remember). At the time I was 16 and really never realized what life would become. I've had my ups and downs with life and with pandahut, and so has pandahut in general. Yet, over the years I have always found myself back playing here after a break or some time. The community has changed drastically, but I still find plenty of great players. This post is not a goodbye, as I am not leaving(Well, im going to Ait in a few weeks but I will return in November). Over the years of playing in pandahut I found myself as moderator, as member of plenty of different groups. I bounced around groups a lot in 2017-2019. In late 2019 I joined a group because one of my friends, now HeadRP admin, BurntToast invited me. The group was called BMC and was near its founding. It was a mixture of MattCobra's group and Burnt's. I joined along with ZERO and we had good times going against the PSD. Pengu and Yoshi were our biggest competition from the PSD, but both eventually decided to go criminal and join us. Eventually we started to realize that we were all active, but the leaders(burnt and matt) were barely playing at the time. I decided to leave and make my own group in order to have some more autonomy, but Burnt offered to make me leader of NA while Matt led EU. Pengu made some weird demands that should of been red flags, but he came back anyways. I'll be completely honest, BMC did not turn out how I wanted originally. BMC was meant to be an elite group that was small and not toxic. I tried to avoid toxicity many times and purge it from BMC, but many members would do it when I wasn't looking and others would get into arguments. I personally began to get into arguments that I soon realized I should avoid and have started to grow because of that and get around it. By the end, the BMC leaders were myself, ZERO, and Yoshi. We decided to split BMC as we saw it essentially oppressing everyone and not allowing competition to grow. It got to the point where we could crush competition almost through reputation(Another HUGE issue was a bunch of BMC staff that couldn't handle each others sits). Well anyways backing up a little, I know its a tangent and you can ofc skip ahead to the actual giveaway part but I want to say all of this because I am so truly appreciative of this community for always letting me have a fallback from hard times in my life. Last summer I went to BCT after enlisting in the Vermont Army National Guard. I told all admins in advance and when I left was a supermod, I even got mayor in June just to give out as much bamboo as possible as mayor. Around the time I also did a 3 million bamboo giveaway(The largest in total amount given in PH history). A little secret, I alted as Yuki(One of the few cops that scared BMC members) and she(me? Idk its weird to explain this) actually won 200k from the giveaway when I was running random numbers, it was amazing and helped mask me alting as Yuki. Anyways, I went to basic and learned a lot about myself and came back home because I am split option. I found out upon returning that I had been demoted from supermod. I attempted to get my rank back because I was legally mandated to go to training and had told them and finally compromised in a sense with Classi and Aren that I could reapply and just get faster promotions. I got back to supermod, then Aren had everything happen. After his demotion I talked with him and found that he was going through a lot irl, which didn't purely excuse him but I believe that people should give him as a person a little less hate(Not excusing his actions and bias as an admin, but he definitely was not a bad person). I got promoted to admin in a staff meeting in December, and since then I have tried my best to get changes done to roleplay to improve rules. Its been hard work, as getting rules changed takes a few steps and people to go through. I really want to thank Mushy, Miku, Classi, and Burnt for dealing with me asking for small changes in rules to clarify things and trying to get stuff fixed even while dealing with their own lives, I know I could of been a pain in the ass sometimes coming to you a few times a day asking if we could change something, but hell changing the rules is a constant job. (I swear I have read the rules more as admin than I ever did in the past 4 years). Now to the juicy bits, I want to thank every single staff member I have worked with, too many to list, every head RP admin(except queenie cus she started drama and rumours about me for some reason), and every other admin and ex admin. I also want to personally thank ZERO for being such a good and honest friend, I have never had an online friend that I have shared more personal information with than ZERO, and he honestly deserves to be admin more than anyone I know. A second huge thanks to Yoshi for being a great friend, and for being great friends with me for the past year and a half. I want to thanks all BMC members as well, for giving me good times and a (mostly) great group to be with. I also want to thank classi for being one of my oldest friends on pandahut that is still around, and for helping me against Aren so many times, he has honestly helped me through so much irl shit because seeing him continue to struggle with life yet still being head admin on RP for as long as he did just purely to make sure RP wasn't ruined. A HUGE thanks goes to Miku and Mushy for being good friends, models, and just amazing owner/founders of pandahut. They work so much more than the average person realizes, and put in 10x the effort I ever could to make pandahut great. I also want to thank Burnt for being a kind of weird friend of mine, especially the past year and a half. We hadn't always talked a lot before that, but we have had great times since. Another huge shout out goes to Pablo(He was John Wick when I first saw him years ago on 13, pretty sure it was near military base actually) for having this gem of a time happen
Im not going to sit here and list everyone I have known/been friends with on pandahut as I don't have a bunch of time and that would take a while to remember 4 years worth of people, so thank you to everyone I have interacted with in a positive way.
A bit of advice for people struggling through depression or anything else that I have gotten through(Even just rough patches). Try to look forward and look for friends and others that can support you. For me, I couldn't rely on parents, but I was able to rely on my uncle and my sister, along with friends here and in real life. Always keep pushing yourself forward, and don't give up. I recommend running or another form of cardio exercise, it can help a lot with keeping your mind off life and being healthier will make you happier. There's always another option, just try and find it. If you are younger and are struggling to find someone to talk to, just try and find someone who cares online or in real life, and try to ignore negative people. Overtime you start to filter out the negative. If you have to laugh at someone's rude comment to do it, go ahead. Do not take negative words to heart or you will struggle so much.
Okay well, sorry for the big paragraph, no i'm not gonna proof read like I usually would because I have somewhere to go in 15 minutes and I am mentally exhausted today.

Okay so the giveaway will consist of 5 MVP+ ranks. One rank will be upgrading someone from MVP+ to chrome, and the other 4 will go to people that are not donators-MVP. The other giveaway is 1 mil bamboo, split into sections of 100k meaning there will be 10 winners. You may only apply for ONE
of the giveaways to make sure there are 15 total winners and to spread the love out as much as possible. Here is the format you must follow!
In game name+discord name and number:
What giveaway(MVP+ or Bamboo)
Donator rank(only for mvp+ giveaway, leave blank otherwise):
Who is a great friend to you on pandahut and why:
If not enough people apply for both giveaways, there may be people that win both simply to giveaway all of the bamboo, but I recommend that if you see 15 having applied for the MVP+ giveaway to apply for the bamboo giveaway instead, as you cannot apply for both and all double applications will be deleted.
This giveaway will go until 7/23/20
Edit on 7/5-You cannot apply for the giveaway just for the purpose of giving it away to someone else. Please invite that person to apply to the giveaway themselves instead. There is a bamboo giveaway for those that have mvp+ or especially chrome+ already.
Goodluck to all and I thank every panda!
