Although not the official birthday of the forums, as the website went live some weeks later on 27 November; a day to celebrate, and to thank, those who have made it possible for us all to have a forum such as SANParks.org Forums - the BEST forum on the www!

Dear all,

Thank you for the acknowledgement. You are making me blush.

Playing a role in founding the new website for SANParks in 2004 has been the most creative experience of my life. I don't have children of my own, but I imagine this is what creativity and the process of birthing feels like.

Although I set this up, and our birding expert Owl joined soon, the most supportive person at the time was Danie. :gflower:

Soon after that, some strong, knowledgeable and hard-working members were standing out among the crowds, and those became our Mods - the most precious, most phenomenal volunteers the internet has ever seen.

And then the E-Biz team grew to 2, to 3, to 4, to 5, to 6, to 7... (with one vacancy right now... interested? ;) )
http://www.sanparks.org/misc/sitemap/info.php

Thank you to you all - Moddies and forumites - who made this a place for quality gathering of like-minded people... addicted to SANParks, and Nature Conservation. I salute you all!

Hopefully the Forum will still be going in another 10 years :thumbs_up:

I am on a number of Forums that cover my various hobbies.
There seems to be a general trend of Forums becoming less and less active.
But SANP Forum seems to be as busy as ever :thumbs_up:
