This was veeeery fast – we were at 100,000 comments only 150 days ago and now we have crossed 200,000! Note that the number of comments includes also the number of forum replies since they are de facto same thing.

After doing quick calculations we’re averaging well over 50 posts per LumberJock (including projects, blog entries, forum topics, reviews) and this is something to be proud of. You will not find many community/forum sites with this kind of activity. Only those reviews are still slightly behind ;)

Keep posting, discussing and sharing! LumberJocks are the best.

No wonder I’m having a hard time keeping up with everything—and have no time left to comment.. VERY impressive.

I don’t know if I’ll give any more reviews… i get picked on a lot just cause I didn’t give the table saw a 5-Star rating.

But, never-the-less, CONGRATULATIONS MARTIN!!!!

It shows great vision to create this site and I pray you prosper beyond your expectations.

I have given up trying to stay current on the posts. It is only possible if you are on here 24/7. It would be fun to try but I probably would get yelled at (even more than I do now). :)

That explains why I can’t keep up…..... ” A tip of the Hat to you Martin” without your work and dedication, there would be no LumberJocks.

Lumberjocks is the best and its nice to see it doing so well. I bet we have MsDebbieP and Karson to thank a lot for that. They contributed about roughly 1/10th of the total count with around 10,000 each.

Since I’ve been here, about a month or so, I’ve learned so much. I’ve spent a lot of time on this site just trying to keep up with the current stuff. I really haven’t even had time to get into the past stuff yet. There is so much knowledge here, that it’s incredible. I’m very thankful for LumberJocks, all those that participate with the vast knowledge they share, and Martin! Thanks All, and Congrats Martin!
