8 years on PFWC

#1 Post by webfork » Sat Apr 11, 2015 11:26 am

I'm not one for anniversaries but as of today I've been on the site 8 years. Although I've given a lot of time to this place, the site has definitely given back: I love playing with new programs and solving problems, but there's been some solid professional benefits. The site both helped me get the job I've had for the last 3 years and helped me get promoted within the job twice. All the work with licenses, interfaces, usability, and work with developers turns out to translate pretty well into my line of work.

I'll also take this chance to say thanks to everyone that's given their time and energy to the site, either in development, maintenance, suggesting new programs, testing, analysis/reviews, bug reports, or contacting developers.

Thanks webfork for all you have done for the TPFC community :!:
I also joined the club 8 years ago, but I provide only a modest contribution compared with you :)

Congrats and thanks for your contributions! We're getting older, huh? :)

Btw, is there any special meaning of the extra "W" in the topic title? :)

I think you and tproli have left the most visible contribution on TPFC.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Great to hear that but I don't think so regarding myself.

However, if it is because the website design, please accept my apology :)
