Well, I registered this domain, mu-43.com, on 12/13/09, and the site "went live" on 12/15/09. Technically, mu-43 is 1-month-old today :smile:. Some highlights so far: Just passed the 500 member mark, about half of which were carried over from Camwk (a deceased general photography forum), and the rest new within the past month Passed the 100-thread mark about a week ago Nearly reached the 1000-post mark The numbers are encouraging, but the quality goes well beyond that. I think we have terrific members! I also think that the numbers reinforce the need for such a place as we are building here. Looking around, the :43: subforums seem to be the most active ones on most of the major sites. It's only natural that we should have a dedicated community for all :43: users. Those of you just joining us, don't be put off by the relative newness of the site. We are committed to keeping this community friendly, positive, and moving in the right direction... and we are here to stay .
