WebmasterWorld is on the verge of 3 major milestones:

1) As you may have read over here [webmasterworld.com], that WebmasterWorld is about to roll through 1 million messages some time this week.

2) What you may-may not know, is some time within the next 4 days, we are also about to roll over 500,000,000 (yes million) page views for our 4 year history.

3) A third milestone is that the Google forum is about to roll over 250k.


With that as a light headed back drop, let me just say thank you to the entire community. With your help, we have been able to do what no other forum on the web has been able to do.

A few weeks ago I was talking with a friend - one of the old pros - Kevin Lee at Did-it.com. Kevin happened to call WebmasterWorld the Switzerland of the web.

I know it is not always easy being a member here - knowing the worldwide audience - that it can be a challenge to do so at times. We are far from perfect, and every day is a learning experience here. Thank you for your contributions and your continued patience & latitude in 2004. For our part, we will continue to endeavor to provide the best community experience and environment possible.

Sincerely,
Brett Tabke

> I know it is not always easy being a member here

I suppose it is quite a bit easier than to be a moderator or an administrator! ;)

> that it can be a challenge to do so at times

For me that is part of the reason for being here.

> Thank you for your contributions

Giving my own miniscule contribution to this vast acheivement has been a pleasure. Well, not always, but most of the time.

Well done on the milestones Brett, and on an excellent site generally -- the liveliest community I have experienced in my ten years on the web. Its success owes a lot to the way it is run.

WebmasterWorld may well be noted by future internet historians, up there with pioneer groups such as the WELL, etc -- which, I believe, is the type of BB background that you first "got your hands dirty" in?

Many congratulations! Before I found this site I hadn't a clue about SEO or even the Google Dance (the shame). Thankfully I'm clued up now and not a day goes by without a dozen visits to the excellent Google News and Google Adsense forums.

Truly amazing! The wide variety of forums, with highly professional members, high quality posts, and much more -- that's what has made WebmasterWorld the resource for Web masters and Web developers everywhere. You can read about the latest and greatest while partaking of knowledge as old as Adam.

Even though, I would have thought that WebmasterWorld already passed 500 million page views?

>500,000,000 page impressions

A laaaaaaaaaarge portion of this is mine. ;)

I'm about to set up my own personal WebmasterWorld pi counter within my custom code here at WebmasterWorld. (there's still this silly search box [webmasterworld.com] which really needs some usefull expansion ...)

Amazing the restraint pre-mod has apparently had on the Google Forum - I thought it was part of the ToS that all Google threads must be a minimum of 250 posts! ;)

Congratulations Brett and thanks to all the admins and mods and extraordinary members (hey ... that includes me now!) that have made WebmasterWorld the place to "master" the web.

Google Dances

Congrats, Brett! I think WebmasterWorld should now add a little tag to the bottom of the home page, similar to Google / AllTheWeb...

The big page view milestone was hit sometime between the 23'rd and the 24'th.
