A couple of milestones as we get ready for the "big changes" - I just hit 17,500 posts and the PS forum hit 22,000 posts - both on the same day.
Hey, I know it's kind of a silly thing to celebrate, but simple guys like me take our amusements where we can find them.
And really, it is pretty cool - in just under 18 months, our little "by popular demand" EQ magazine Project Studio recording forum has managed to rack up 22K worth of quality posts, done with a overall attitude of mutual respect and civility. A lot of cool topics were discussed, and a lot of useful information was shared - I was really impressed by how much people were willing to pitch in and help one another.
To each and every one of you who participated, and to those who Lurked (Lurkers Rule!
), thank you for being such an indispensable part of it all. YOU made it happen!
And that leads me back to where it all started... several people "pushed" for such a forum, and suggested me as moderator, and a guy named Craig Anderton believed in me enough to give me the chance to help make it happen. And CMP / EQ has given me the opportunity to be associated with their great publication - for me, that's kind of like seeing your name in Guitar Player - oops wait - I got to see that too!
To all of you, but especially to you Craig, I'm extremely grateful.
I know it's a little early to officially "sign off" as moderator here (that happens on Monday), but I just wanted to take this opportunity to say to all of you that you're very special to me, and I greatly appreciate the help, opportunities and friendships that have come my way just because I decided to sign up on an Internet forum named "Musicplayer" four and a half years ago and started hanging out a bit. Is this an amazing world or what?
Thank you all...
With humble and heartfelt thanks, and warmest regards,
