    Why it's 10 years and it's booming? Because of the people who contribute!!! Amongst them those who ask and those who answer. Otherwise no master plan for a forum would have worked. Congratulations to all of those who actually contribute to the forum!!!!

    Moderators, you are also thanked for making this function smoothly, devoting your time and effort to be impartial.

    Finally mkellogg is also thanked to have made it possible.

    Happy anniversary and let this forum reach the next 10 years!

    Thanks for setting up this site, and I have met a lot of marvellous people here which gave me help with my English learning. Some I do not meet any more as they do not come, but some are coming. I would like to thank everyone who gave me suggestions and comments here. and I love this site and you.

    Thanks.

    Morning everyone,

    Join date : March 10, 2005. Not right from the start but not far from it.
    I'm happy to see that, 9 years later (Gee, does that mean I was 9 years younger?), the WRF are still alive and kicking.

    Thanks for sending that e-mail invitation, Mike.
    I'll sure be back.

    Warrant Officer Ripley. Signing off.
    Cheerio from LV.

    Happy Birthday WR :)

    Such a great place! Such a great community!

    When I joined to WR I couldn't imagine I would find so many good friends on here. WR is the best online site to share knowledge and doubts.

    Thanks for everything, Mike :)

    Love you all!

    I still remember when I used to use WR just as a great source of answers for English-Spanish questions... I read people's contributions and it felt like "Wow, how wise and willing to help!". One day I found out I could also make my little contribution (very little compared to many others', of course...), and that made me feel very very happy; you never stop learning, even when you try to help others learn.

    So Happy Birthday and thanks to all WR team and contributors, this is a wonderful place, the best in many ways, and I'm pretty sure you'll celebrate many more anniversaries!!

    Cheers!!

    Estimado Sr. Micro (es un nombre muy raro, pero así es como me dice el traductor de Google que se llama usted):

    Qué alegría me ha dado recibir su correo invitándome a pasar por aquí a dejar algunas palabras de homenaje y recuerdo. Pensaba que ya me habían borrado ustedes de todas las listas, pero medio veo –ya sabe, esto del ojo es un pequeño impedimento- que aún permanezco en sus memorias. Eso me congratula.

    Confieso que no he llegado a entender bien del todo su carta. Será porque no sé inglés, a pesar de lo que pueda creer por mi aspecto, y aunque mi participación en sus dignos foros haya sido exclusivamente en el ‘Sólo Español’ usted se ha dirigido a mí en su bello idioma, posiblemente por la habitual prepotencia anglosajona que presupone que el resto del orbe está obligado a conocerlo. No es mi caso. Así que entre el ya citado traductor automático que me hace el apaño y algo de intuición, creo que he adivinado el sentido de sus letras.

    Me parece que no llegaron a comentarle el motivo por el que renuncié a mis aportaciones; es normal, somos muchos. Verá: que usted haya inventado el WR como negocio es algo legítimo y plausible, le asiste ese derecho, pero deja de ser ético quererlo camuflar con ínfulas culturales. Aquí gana dinero todo el mundo. Usted con los ingresos de los anunciantes, los anunciantes por la venta de sus productos y los traductores cuando cobran su trabajo gracias a las aportaciones de decenas de personas que lo hacen de forma altruista. Si usted no quiere repartir con ellos la parte que les correspondería de las ganancias, también lo entiendo (aunque en su carta se enorgullezca de ‘lo que todos hemos construido’), pero al menos debería usted cuidar de que se cumplan las formas propias de lo que dice llamarse "foro", que consiste, ni más ni menos, en respetar sin censuras las opiniones vertidas por los participantes cuando se hace con respeto. No me interesa, pues, aplicar mi tiempo para beneficio crematístico de terceros sin reconocimiento al menos a mi libertad de expresión, la misma que estoy ejerciendo en estos momentos. Lo siento, soy muy mío.

    Por todo lo demás, le felicito francamente por el aniversario y le deseo éxitos personales y empresariales. Parabienes para sus adláteres. Y, por supuesto, mis mejores saludos al equipo de entusiastas voluntarios que se lo curran a diario para mayor gloria de otros poquitos.

    Reciba mi más respetuoso saludo.

    Mike, I'm late to drop in here - many congratulations from me, I haven't forgotten you nor the forum, it's just that my life presently is absorbed by ... plants, mainly :D - which is why I only drop by here occasionally.
    It is really impressive what has become of your forum, just keep going!

    Como un nuevo llegado al gran foro, agradezco los hilos proporcionados por el foro.

    Soy un chino que acaba de comenzar aprendiendo español por mí. El foro es un almacén detesoro para los educandos.
    Espero que el foro será convertido en mejor y mejor en los próximos diez años.
