    soon spring will be upon us and time will be in short supply and the opportunity to say thank you will not be on anyone's agenda list.

    I do want to take this opportunity to say thanks to Charles and most especially to Iddee for this forum.. for the constant stream of improvement and for the courteous fashion in which it is operated. You guys are simple the best.

    and a good season to all...

    I do want to second that.
    Thanks for what you guys do and in the fashion that you do it. This forum is sooooooo much better than some of the others.
    Thanks, Robert

    I'm just a newbee here, but I'd like to say thanks, also, I'd be lightyears behind if it wasn't for a bunch of you good folks (not necessarily what you've written to me, but what you've already written and I've found by searching the message base). Very nice community here, no heavy-handed moderation here but I really haven't seen any need for it. Rather laid-back (off season) attitude...I'm sure things are soon to speed up a bit. ;)

    Thanks to those who put the time in to keep this going...

    GREAT WORK!!!!!
    THANKS!!!!!!

    Ed

    How could I ever dissagree with something tecumseh posted? :mrgreen:

    This forum has been a positive addition to my world of beekeeping. I would like to add my name to those extending thanks to those responsible for setting up (Admin) and maintaining (Mods) this site!
    My new resolution will be to make sure I have my camera with me at all times when I'm out at the hives. With todays digital cameras there's no need to worry about cost of pictures and they do add a lot to the conversations. I see many of the more recent members to the forum are active participants and are not hesitant to post (pictures included) and we all benefit by that. :thumbsup:
    So be prepared folks, there should be some good, some bad, and plenty of ugly :mrgreen: in some of my posts this year.
    I will not hide anything, mistakes and success' will be there for all to see, no editing. Hopefully my photobucket account won't fill up. :lol:

    Yes great and many thanks to the Admin of this site for a job well done, and to the membership as well. For we all know the saying "trash in trash out" and it seems that Admin has less trash to deal with (or perhaps the trash is dealt with before we see it). Thank you for a job well done. Jim

    You guys are going to make my head swell so much I won't be able to get through the door. Giving me the credit for the smoothness of this forum is like giving me the credit for pushing the wagon, ""DOWNHILL"".

    It's much more of a position than a job. The members we have have eliminated the "JOB" part of it.

    Thanks..........

    Everyone else has already said everything, so I'll just add my name to the list.

    I like it here because I feel like folks can post how they feel and think about beekeeping freely, without fearing that someone with a personal agenda or chip on their shoulder will try to argue how 'wrong' or misguided they are, just so they can feel like a bigshot authority on the subject.

    I appreciate the hospitality and the extensive knowledge here. I appreciate folks keeping controversial topics and viewpoints off of this forum. There are appropriate forums elsewhere on the internet for non-bee conversations.

    I looked at several beekeeping forums before joining this one because of the friendly atmosphere. It's been a lot of help to me. Thanks very much.

    I agree, very friendly, non confrontational site. Not many sites where you can learn from others admitted failures and successes. Thanks to all of those behind the scenes making this forum what it is!
