Art,

You've done a really great job in setting up this forum, bringing together people who share a common interest. I originally found this forum by a referral by someone and I now know a lot, lot more about soviet awards and soviet history than I ever did before. Even something as simple as knowing which books to buy, and which ones not has been a great help to me.

Thanks also to NB and Ed for their many posts to the Fake section. I find this one of the most interesting aspects of this forum, as well as, of course, getting to meet lots of people who share a passion of mine.

Also thanks to everyone else who contributes, especially those kind enough to answer all the questions I keep asking.

Kind Regards,
Shane Cook.

I don't know what to say except if the membership didn't post some of the great stuff we've had in the past, the forum wouldn't exist. The moderators are doing a great job. Without them, it would get boring very fast.

This, by far, is the best online collector community that I have seen. In addition to having a number of excellent members and being our "virtual club", this web site has a ton of information about Soviet awards, that is hard to find anywhere else.

Art, and everyone else - congradulations! Cheers!

The Big 100

Dear Art

I see we are at 99 members. One more to the big 100 and I think it will be soon.

I also see that there were 37 members on line at one stage. I can remember when 5 was the top number.

Well done

Kind regards

Munroe
