To all the contributors : you can't imagine what I learnt in 6 months, as well as the pleasure I have taken in browsing this Forum.

Congratulations... and long live this Forum !!!!!

Thanks

I also would like to say BIG THANKS to everybody (Art, Moderators, and all Forum Members) for your help.

Every day, every morning, the first think I do (when I come to work), I open the Forum page. I am glad we have the Forum, it makes my life and hobby much more interesting.

Thanks again.
Eric.

Fellow Members,

With the 400th member, perhaps a trip down memory lane is in order. I had originally started a small forum about two years ago, it was one of those services provided by a web-based company that allowed you to setup your own message board for free in exchange for letting them place a few ads within the board. I figured it was a worthwhile trade-off and went ahead. It had a few die-hard members ( Tal Inbar was one of the members ) but overall it didn't do very well. There was a limit on the quality and quantity of the information I could contribute, and the board was not much fun to use. Their were no pictures allowed, and not nearly as many bells and whistles as the VBulletin forum software. Thus, about a year ago I started the forum you are on now with the desire of having the best collectors I could find moderate it with me.

The success of the forum is based purely on the people that contribute to it. The moderators are what make the forum truly enjoyable for everyone. Members don't get to see what goes on behind the scenes..from keeping things organized within their respective forums to keeping arguments and troublemakers under control. The moderators dedicate quite a bit of their free personal time to this forum and their importance can't be overstated.

A concise, on topic site is what we wanted from the start and we are enjoying the fruit of this mindset. The members of this forum are among the most accomplished and educated collectors on the planet. Here's to all the forum regulars that make the forum what it is. You guys know who you are. Without the great posts, we would have nothing to do

I don't have statistics which narrows down who visited the most and when, but here are the top ten posters:

1. Tal Inbar
2. Nota Bene
3. Art
4. new world
5. otlichnik
6. HuliganRS
7. charlet
8. Ed Maier
9. DougD
10. Dave

I can tell you that the website (the main site and the forum) gets an average of over 20,000 hits per day. Over 95 percent of this traffic comes from the forum. This includes everytime someone looks at a different page on the forum and isn't unique hits which is totally different. Think of it as a member who looks at one page, looks at another page, and then looks at another. This would count as 3 hits. Still alot of hits though.
