Mind if I share some good news with you all...?

Hey Everyone

I hope you don't mind my posting this, but I am rather delighted at the moment as I have achieved what I consider a wonderful milestone. My own brass musicians forum has today passed our 10,000th registered member - and to say I'm pleased is somewhat of an understatement.

We are 5 1/2 years old and still going strong attracting new members each day, we have more than half a million posts, a superb team of dedicated moderators from all over the world who help me run the site in our family friendly manner, and above all an enthusiastic and fantastic membership.

Yay...

Well done. A very long time ago I used to play (not very well) tenor horn.

Congratulations, John - that's a terrific achievement. But how do you find time for it all? I just wish I had half of your energy!

Congratulations John.

Was it Roy Castle who had a number called 'Dedication'?

On to the next 10,000. It must be a friendly site with that number of members.


Cheers Sid

Thats a wonderful achievement John. The more so that you obviously have got a friendly site that has held together over what is a considerable time frame. Long may it continue.

PS I used to play Eb Bass in a military band and just loved the bass solos.

Congratulations John - that's a huge achievement

I run three forums including this one and we only, so far, have about 2500 registered users between them, though they are relatively new (the oldest one, DPNow.com, is 18 months old).

The e-group here is the fastest growing, with 410 users in just four months or so. It also has the fastest growing gallery, with just about 3,000 images already - almost catching up with Four Thirds User despite that site's 6 month head start.

So well done John and well done the e-group

Ian

Yes - we have a load of forum smileys on DPNow which need to be copied across, and I'm the look out for some Easter ones as requested the other day.
