What an amazing year for the CSS Forum, just a few months ago we reached 10,000 members, and now at the end of 2005 we have over 40,000 members.

There has been a little friction over the last year but overall we have helped many people gain a better understanding of CSS, which is what we are here for.
Thanks to the moderators for keeping the site running cleanly while I have been tied up in other things.

I wish you all a Happy New Year and hope that those members that have been helped, are willing to share their new found knowledge with others.

Happy New Year

I personally think the moderators do a wonderful job here, friction makes it interesting. I can't say enough what I have learned about CSS, markup technique, and forum etiquette in the short time I've been here. =D> Everyone have a safe and happy new years.

This is my big chance . . . yep, I blew it . . .

Happy New Year

Bravo the mods. They may get a little... tense from time to time but they still have their terrific senses of humour. Thanks to Tony for keeping the show on the road in the face of a huge increase in members and some technical glitches.
A happy and successful 2006 to everybody and to those who will be celebrating tonight, have fun, keep safe and home by 5am, please Shock

Happy New Year

A happy and prosperous new year to one and all. 2005 was an interesting one on the forum, much colorful activity, I look forward to 2006.

I think it pertinent that we post our new years resolutions, that we may have them on record. Cool

I will try and be a little less tense from time to time Smile

Happy New Year to all around the world!

Tony and all members,
Thank you for making this the best forum on the web - I have not seen one yet that compares to the help that is freely given, respect for each other and one that is fun and enjoyable. I am proud to be a part of CSS Forum. See you around in 2006! Laughing out loud

Happy New Year

First, I want to reassure folks that I am not dead :?

I have been most impressed and pleased with the success of this forum and wish it continued success in the future. A forum like this thrives on the continued selfless work of a core of individuals, several of whom I can see in the names above. I have very great respect for their perseverance, even in the face of repeated RTFM questions, of "fix my site" requests, and all too frequently little thanks. However, the joy of the craft, of advancing the state of the art, of gaining adherents one small victory at a time - it has to be its own reward. For my own part, I couldn't keep doing it - I burned out, in effect, so I doubly respect the fortitude that keeps the core members going.

Best wishes for 2006!

DE

Happy New Year

Good to hear from you again David, and a happy new year, I do hope though that it's more a case of recharging ones batteries than burnout.

Happy New Year

congrats on a new year to the css forum!

I must say over 2005 I learned so much, and slowly crept my way up from 'being helped' to 'helping' as much as I can. It is a very quick way to learn this business we are all in and fun along the way.

You want proof? I have been a bit slack lately in these forums :oops: and my CSS trouble-shooting skills are taking a beating!

you want new years resolutions in writing Hugo? More time on the forum helping people out! (or is it me that needs help? Laughing out loud )

thanks Tony for all the hard work!
