Even though there are always certain people who drag the One Direction fandom down with their complete and total buffoonery, the vast majority of the fanbase are the best kind of people you could ever hope to meet.
So, in celebration of all the GREAT stuff the 1D fandom have achieved over the years, we've decided it's time to give a shout-out to all the MVP's who are too busy raising thousands of pounds for charity to ever dream of hacking into 1D's phones to send them hateful messages.
1. When they took a full page out in Billboard to pay tribute to the band.
2. When they sacrificed certain achievements in life for the greater good.
3. When they made an epic masterpost including over 3000 videos of the boys.
4. When they were officially named 4music's most powerful fan tribe in the world.
5. When they raised £600,000 for Stand Up To Cancer in WWA ticket sales.
6. When they decided to trend #NiallTheMonk to lift each other's spirits.
7. When they raised $11,000 for the London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard in honour of Harry Styles's 21st birthday.
8. When they raised $10,000 for Doctors Without Borders in honour of Liam Payne's birthday.
9. When they raised £25,000 for The Eden Dora Trust in celebration of Louis Tomlinson's birthday.
10. When they followed Niall's lead and helped raise a massive sum for Irish Autism Action and T.E.A.M in celebration of his birthday.
11. When they raised over $40,000 for H.E.S Malala and the Switchboard for Harry Styles' birthday.
12. Basically every time they raised shitloads of cash without ever being asked to.
13. When they got behind the Action/1D initiative and shared their hopes for a better future.
14. When the took a break from all that fundraising and decided to roast 1D online. Oh, it's just FRIENDLY banter.
15. When they created the From Stairs To Stadium's fan art book back in 2013.
16. When they launched their own single campaigns in recognition of 'Home' and 'No Control'.
17. And finally, ever single time they joined forces and voted for ALL the fan awards together.
There's just too many examples to count.
Now watch some glorious memories from when One Direction were 5/5:
