I first visited your forum about three months ago. I found this site when I seached for Googlebot via the Google search engine. I think you came up #3 at that time. Not bad at all. The people I've met here are first class. The owner and staff here are very helpful and seem to be fair, but firm when appling the TOS. I own and operate eight websites which have been live for almost seven years. Those sites are set up to run themselves, so I spend most of my time trying to learn new things and to help people just starting in this business to learn from some of my expericences. For years, I was SYSOP, in the CNN forum via CompuServer and never thought that I would get involved, on a regular basis, in another forum, but this place has changed my mind. You guys and girls keep up the good work. You're doing a great job...

wmw: It's not just an online forum, it's an addiction. Soon you'll be claiming your blanket and a spot on the virtual sleeping couch. ;)

Glad to have you aboard, Mark... and thanks so much for the positive feedback.

This is an incredible assemblage of personalities Mark; the mix is vibrant and productive, and yes... very addicting! ;)

Thanks for such kind words Mark, it's great to have you here with us.

>I was SYSOP

My daughter was a SYSOP on a local BBS when she was a young teen; I never got on and don't even remember what she looked like then; I didn't see anything but the back of her head behind a computer for a few years.

>very addicting

That's for sure! Now I'm like my daughter was back then. First day I got on line I accidentally found and got involved with an online womens community, and found my way here going on two years ago soon. It sure didn't take long to become addicted, I think it happened in about 3 days time. It was quite a culture-shock from my past experience! First time I ever came across some message board related to search engines, I thought to myself, "Those people are crazy, they spend their whole lives at the search engines. I'd never be like that." ;)

What's addicting is not only the subject matter and dynamics of the discussions, it's the people themselves. Even with urbanization all over the world, I believe people all over still like and enjoy the concept and comfort of a local "neighbohood."

I can't imagine how we've been fortunate enough for it to have happened, but here at WmW we've got what's got to be absolutely the greatest bunch of people that can be found anyplace. We're a neighborhood on a global scale, with wonderful people from all over the world meeting together here to span cultures, nationalities, distances and time zones. And yes, sometimes even differences; but that's one of the things that makes for such a dynamic environment - each person brings their own personality, interests and opinions, and makes their unique contribution to the whole. It sometimes amazes me how we can have such diversity and unity, all at the same time.

For those of us fortunate enough to become moderators, there's a profound sense of appreciation for what we've got here. It takes a lot of loyalty and steadfast, diligent dedication and commitment to serving the needs of the members to the best of our ability. It's a privilege that's very much to be treasured, and for myself personally, there's no way I could ever give back to the community nearly equal to the amount and level of what I receive. It's a totally enriching experience, and I consider myself very much blessed to be a part of it.
