    Default Congratulations to All!



    It amazes me as to how fast Astronomy Forum has evolved in just the past two months. Back in late November 2008 I used to dig in the archives to find a question to answer quite often. And I would only visit the forum every few days or so. Now if I don't check in daily there will be three or more pages of new posts to read. It is nice to see so many active posters and I can't help but wonder how many visitors there are that also stop in frequently.
    So a BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO EVERYONE!
    Our administrator, moderators, and the rest of the members that make up this community have all pitched in for the common good.
    Also I would like to thank our sponsor for giving us this great opportunity to expand our horizons and meet new friends.

    Yes, it's really grown incredibly, and all the repeat members and posters have made a great contribution.

    I have made the same observation. It is so nice to have so many members sharing their experiences.

    Why thank you Ted for the kind words

    We of the Admin/Mod team have been over the moon in the last few weeks with the massive increase in forum traffic. Sure we have put a lot of effort in behind the scenes, but it would all count for nothing without the fantastic support from all our members.

    Well said Vin. Although I'm as new as they come here, but ever since I got here the forum has been growing by the day. Of course, there is no forum without members, and so far so good

    Thanks Ted, we really appreciate all the members and mods that have made this forum what it is. I just try to help here and there but maybe in a few decades when I grow a beard too, I will be able to answer some questions properly LOL

    Admin/Mod team:

    Kudo's to the founders of this fine Forum. Being a newbie, I am impressed with the knowledge base and the structure at this site. I am a member of another fabulous forum for classic Chevy trucks and due to that forum's existence I have solved many issues inherent with that hobby.

    I look forward to a long and fruitful experience here at Astronomy Forum .

    Mitch
