As you probably noticed, we have hit an impressive milestone just a few hours ago. Total number of comments on LumberJocks exceeded 1,000,000 – yes that’s ONE MILLION! This number has been reached in 1694 days since the February, 2006 when the site was launched. That’s around 4.6 years of steady growth. As they say, picture is worth a thousand words.. well in this case it’s a nice little chart:

I’d like to thank all of you for making this happen and I hope that the three most active LumberJocks – a1jim, Karson and Scott Bryan – will accept the LJ shirt as a personal thanks from me. I think you deserve it.

Let’s keep this site encouraging, helpful and most of all – friendly!

Congrats Martin on such a successful and beneficial site. Even more impressive is that while there are more frequent posts later on, it never once drops or has dips in its activity. Go LJ’s!

Very cool !

A lot of knowledge in that million posts.

Martin, ... if you wouldn’t mind … could you kindly transcribe them all, into book form ? I have this new display tower that I built, and … just the perfect shelf for The Gospel According to The LumberJocks :-)
