I know the quality of my work is up so many notches since I came here, and it's time to say a big Thanks! to everyone.
I wouldn't have much of a business without this place. It would have taken years to accumulate the knowledge freely exchanged here, and then it would have been out of date!
I've got a few of your posts flagged Tedster, so take a bow yourself.
By hanging around here, it's like having the experience of thousands and thousands of web projects.

Well said, tedster!
I was hired just over a year ago to do SEO and I didn't have a clue. There was no one to teach me anything, my boss just told me to learn it.
Thankfully, a few months in, I found WmW. I don't think I would have this job today if I hadn't found this place.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed here. The knowledge, professionalism, and courtesy shown here is unbelievable and greatly appreciated.
Iam very impressed how this works when i got here i dont know nothing what you people are talking about, so much words you never heard of.
crosslinking, noframe, ppc, seo,pr, cloaking, subdomains.
For that cloaking word i dont understand that yet but maybe some day when i have read Airs post for the 50 time i get it.
I was scared to death to post a question here are they going to think iam stupid maybe but i tried and when you get a answer to you question that is so professional you think wow that was not to scary and with a lot of reading and reading you get the peices together and that so greate.
Thanks all of you and specielly the mods and Brett.
I stumbled on webmasterworld by accident and now when I get up in the morning (I move around europe with my trusty notebook) the first thing I do is look for any "heads up", now I have got to the point where I can help people on matters that I didn't know anything about just 8 months ago.
A very big thanks going out to Brett and all the mods and members that make webmasterworld probably the best tool I have ever used.
THANK YOU ALL !!!!!
A very grateful Dazz
Man, those three pretty much say it for me. Where else can I go to get info dispatched straight from the front lines on anything from using symlinks to css to the latest Bid Engine news?

Apart from wisdom though, the benefit for me is not feeling too much like a freako. To the real world I suppose this is pretty much a 'minority interest'. Coming in here so often I almost feal normal!

Seriously though everyone at this board has given me knowledge via reading your posts. I am 200% the better for the time spent.
Last weekend, I met a gentleman who said he flew all the way from Europe to meet me. I said, it was nice of you to come over and meet everyone. I sat and talked with him for about 15 minutes until I was requested elsewhere. Later on at the hotel I berated myself for not going back and talking with him some more. I got an email from him yesterday that he said he had one of the best times he could remember in ages. I could share a dozen more stories in the same vein from the weekend.
The internet is rather loose with the word community. It has been cheapened. It is not until you see one in action, where people fly in from all around the world to be together, that it is made tangible. After last weekend, I feel a greater part of it and my commitment to it has never been stronger. That's not the sound of foolish pride or that of an inflating ego, but rather that of overwhelming amazement and honor having the chance to be part of it.
We are building something special here - what a start. Thank you for being part of it.
If there is anything I can do, let me know.
Thank you very much ( to all of you )
Not only this, the information at this site is priceless. Anyone can make a site nowadays, and its only because of the likes of wwworld that we can distinguish between a site and a better site
Imagine how much this knowledge would cost if it were offered through a University. (which are actually not nearly as up-to-date I might add :) )

The whole transcends a mere forum, we are far closer to an extended development team than anything else. Just look at the many threads where a problem or difficulty was presented and how the "team" kicked into gear.
Quite often passions were expressed emphatically as differing points of view were presented. But as a development team, the resolution of the problem was always the primary concern.
The team dynamics here are nothing less than amazing! I personally want to thank each and everyone who contributes to this eclectic mix of topics, problem solving and community. I appreciate it more than words can expess.
Good show, all!
Yes, exactly. I think that really evolved from the mindset of Brett's old board which was very much a "whiteboard" bent of collaborative problem-solving; spider ID's, SEO, scripts, whatever.
As for the "save me time and money" part, all I know is that I have a web publication that is whipping the hell out of some big-dog competitors and the checks are coming in like clockwork. Its next stategic move, one that I'm absolutely convinced is required for continued growth, was all developed here. Have I made a good investment? Absolutely! None of my competitors have a 3000-man support team staffed by some of the BEST names in the business.

Just a voice from the (almost) silent majority to express my deeply felt thanks for all the generous input and the generous tone to expert and novice alike.
It feels like beeing back on CompuServe in the good old days.
