1st birthday coming up
« on: November 06, 2014, 04:50:40 pm »
Thirty days til the forum is one year old.  ""WOW, how the time flies.""

We are 2,040 posts away from 40,000 posts. Can we make it in the first year.

I THINK SO. LET'S GIVE IT A TRY.

Looking at the stats, it should not be a problem -> http://www.worldwidebeekeeping.com/forum/index.php?action=stats

15 days to go, and less than 1000 posts to go. We are on track, so let's keep it going.

BONUS. looks like we will hit the 300 member mark, too.

THANKS, ALL

We had a pretty educated idea that this forum would take off and do well.  Its amazing what a group of people who all share the same goal of keeping bees can do. I predict the forum is like a fine wine it will keep getting better with age ;) ;)

I'd like to take this opportunity to say how appreciative I am of the civility here (or at least what we mere mortals see).  We have great admins and mods and I appreciate all they do.  Thank you everyone for a great forum!

I LOVE IT HERE! All of you have been soo patient with me  ;D My hives were such a mess when I joined, and I have learned soo much. I can't wait for my first swarm, I know just what to do  ;D  Scott won't have to calm me down by instucting me to "Mix a drink. Take a breath. Sit a spell. Let the bees settle. Take a sip of your drink. Watch the bees. Calm Down..."   :D :D

500 posts to go, with 7 days to do it. Let's get busy, folks.   :)

PS. We also need 2 more members to make 300. Talk to your friends. Surely we can find 2 in a week.
