I remember when we hit 500 members and thought it was a big deal. I’ve met so many wonderful people along the way and lost a number too. Its hard to imagine how much this site has grown and all of the knowledge and inspiration that has been shared. Thank you everyone.

Wow! I didn’t realize it had been around that long. I’ve made wonderful friends in my 3 years.

Wayne congratulations on your 10 years. I’ve kinda lost track of my anniversary. But the site has really changed. We now even get spammers so we’ve moved up the food chain. We sure had fun when we’d spend hours sending notes back and forth on our project comments. Thanks

Holy cow! Wow, my page says 3685 days. Dang it’s been a long time, and, yeah, all the traffic means I don’t spend nearly as much time here as I used to…

I have 3136 (about 8 1/2 years) and I have to say a lot of the changes haven’t been for the better.
So many people on here now, and I still only interact with a handful.
I used to log-on and check the site several times a day, now it’s once in a while.
Funny how that works.
This is a place where some of my best friends will be people that I’ll never actually meet.

All in all, I think we are a pretty decent bunch of friends.

As one of the newer members, I’m glad this place exists.

I remembered seeing the name of the website, and initially being off put by the connotation that goes with it (“Jocks”). But I’m glad to see wrong, and I enjoy the openness and creativity of this community.

Here’s to the next 10 years.

Congratulations Wayne on a decade of being an LJ!

I am pushing 9 years so I am not too far behind.
