We don't get to see tangible results from communities to often. This is one of the rare times:

Not too shabby... between iVillage and MySpace, struggling community builders have something to aspire to.

It's probably a good time to make the point that profitable communities rarely happen overnight and are never profitable from day one. Building a community takes a lot of hard work, and it will often be years before it can become profitable. Many "successful" communities still aren't profitable, and the community operators are often not fully compensated for the many hours of effort it takes to keep them going.
