It's amazing how fast we've reached 12000 registered users.

Now if we could get more than 1 percent to post......

Thanks to all the new members!

Great stuff, guys! That's a lot of candles on the cake.

I've cut it twice and it's still too short! But only at one end.

you guys should give a warning to non-posting members and delete them to have more open space.

Have you considered that 1% posting each day would mean 120 posts to read!
and if a few post like I do that could easily add another 30 to 40 each day, EEEK!

Cool 12,006 members

Doug I did notice the 12,000 members we have now. BUT if 1 percent posted, we wouldn't be able to get anything done in the shop or shed. We would spend all our time reading. However I agree with you, we need more active members. Thanks to all who make this the "FINEST" forum on the net. Oh yeah, tks Mark.

I think it is great. Many talk about the great forum, and then never post again. I can understand it to a point, I would like to be able to do more. The medical problems are hard to work around, because to much of anything will make my legs swell, But, i would like to see a problem of getting bigger, than too little. Thanks every one for making this such a great place.

Howard,

I am glad you revived this orginal post which is just a little over 2 years old, but in that 2 years we have grown from 12,000 to over 29,000 members. That is an explosive rate of growth for a forum based on a single specialized tool and goes to show how well Mark has led the charge in putting it together and how well the members have added to the content and community. We hope everyone will continue to make it an even better place by continuing with their suggestions of improvement, warm welcomes and friendly posts.

Hi Doug,

We should keep in mind that the greater number of users are here to learn about routing by standing in the background and reading through the previous posts from those more talented, as I did for some time before I finally made an attempt to post.

There is so much useful information already in the various forums.

My thanks go to the regular posters that are always there to answer questions from new members.

James
