I never figured that this number would ever be in my life. This site is the only one that I’ve been active on. I signed up to other sites and then promptly forgot their address and even my login ID.

But, Martin has made a site that is friendly so lots of friendly people login and have stayed around.

My thanks go out to all of you for your participation and for Martin for having the desire and insite into what makes a great site better.

Now on to 50,000.

Go, Karson, Go !

No doubt this site has a way of keeping people coming back. I keep telling myself I spend too much time here and need to cut back … but I don’t.

Wow Karson, that is amazing!

I get very, very little time for woodworking lately but you’ve helped me a lot anytime I’ve needed help and also helped to make the pen turners’ swaps amazing.

I think I remember 10,000 and 15,000 posts as well! You sure are busy! ;-)

quite an achievement—for you and for our site. You are right, for someone to be here for 25,000 posts then it must be a pretty impressive place to be!

I, for one, am so glad that you joined up – and stayed!

I enjoy your posts… and find I am even posting more than I would expect. At least you are highly skilled in the subject matter. Many of us have no idea what we are talking about!

The form and format of the site helps tremendously.

Speaking of posts… isn’t one owed for our last MDWW workshop? That’d give you 25,001.

Congrats Karson, I am fairly new here but I could tell by the comments you left on my profile and projects that you are a great asset to this site, looking forward to seeing another 25,000.
