Curious. I have just noticed a participant with 2,500 posts (0.99 daily average), most of them questions with answers s/he doesn't always thanks, whose last visit to the forums was less than 12 hours ago, and who hasn't posted in this thread. I wonder if there are many more like this...

Powerhousebridge, your post is a beutiful counter-example to this attitude. It does encourage me (and surely others) to continue contributing in these wonderful forums.
I think there are many more like powerhousebridge than the participant you mentioned before. At least, I hope so.
Greetings, amigo. Alegría tener contacto contigo. Todo bien.

    Unfortunately there are, ONuts. I have a bunch in the PT forums who wouldn't dare to leave a message here.
    Ewie, como sempre impagável!

    I was celebrating with my mention to powerhousebridge and the many, many more like him. And I did post my own thanks many messages ago. I apologize if I gave a wrong impression with my comment on a case that impressed me as curious.
     
    Wow!

    It is like close and open my eyes. Ten years!

    Congratulations to all of you for this project.

    This is an important and great celebration.



    I really want to say congratulation and great job to mkellog, and of course, take the opportunity to say the same to all of you who makespossible this site:Keep helping to others and make this site a wonderful site to help and learn!

    By the way, I see a lot of new faces. I started here ten years ago but I had not had the opportunity to log-in and this bring me a lot of memories. I hope to have the opportunity to visit this site once in a while.

    Congratulations!!!

    Sincerely

    There was a young fellogg named Kellogg

    Who created a website well mellogg;
    When its birthday came round
    The membership found
    A party with (wait for it) jellogg.


    Okay, I cheated a bit.
    Excellent bit of cheating lateral thinking there, ewie.:thumbsup: Could have been put to music by that 60s group, The Trows, ... or recited by Verne's character, Phileas Fow.:p

    If you and Mrs L are setting a trend here, Mike could end up with a whole anthology of anniversary verse!

    I can't say enough about what is not only a great reference site, but continues to get better and better, both technically (ease of use) and in terms of content! I go to WordReference before I consult any other source! Thanks for your hard work and continued support!

    Congratulations, Mike!
    A community which unites competence and pleasantness at the same time.

    A little suggestion to improve the site: it would be funny to have more bilingual dictionaries (for Nordic languages, Dutch, for example).

    Best Regards

    Aw well done guys! 10 years is brilliant!! Thank you Mike and all the moderators and contributors. Before I knew WR existed, I just never really found the linguistic answers I was looking for. So many times, those wee doubts remained just that - doubts. WR changed that and the whole concept of it is inspiring.

    Good on ye!

    Thank you Mike.

    I believe that Word Reference is in the same category as Wikipedia for being a universally used tool that benefits all, and makes the world a closer community.

    There is no much things to tell with my intermediate English. :) Just, this is one of the most succesful projects I have ever seen, and well done.

    Thank you to all the moderators, contributors and to Mike especially. WordReference is an absolutely invaluable tool to me on an almost daily basis since I first joined 6 years ago. Long may it continue!

    As a language resource, it must be said, WR is formidable and probably without equal on the net.
    We all have greatly benefited from that and owe you, Mike, many thanks!

    Thanks for everything, Mike. I wave at you from the plane, every time I sneak home to the States, heading for Norfolk (often my first destination). :)

    Thank you Mike for creating this wonderful forum! My words are not enough to express my gratitude to you and all the moderators. To me, you are the greatest teachers whom I luckily have a chance to learn English with.

    Many thanks to the moderator team too, and all "standard" members for their massive contribution to the forums :) it is a great place to have, even if my member status has changed from "annoying regular writer" to "very occasional reader only" ;-)

    Although we contributors may be the wood that fuels the warm fire that is the Word Reference Forum, an initial spark is always needed to get things started, and for that, Mike, we are all in your debt. You can truly say on your deathbed that you made the world a better place, and not all of us can do that.

    This has been a total lifesaver of a website on more than a few occasions. Thanks Mike and all the moderators, and congratulations on 10 years of hard work and lots of rewards :)

    Thank you, Mike! And it's my pleasure to join and register Wordreference forum today which is the day all of you are celebrating the 10th anniversary, though I have been using it to check many words english to spanish. Happy Birthday!:D
