Let me say thank you again for all the kind words and also make a few additional comments.
We have been fortunate to partner with the vendors we have and could not ask for a better group of people. Every single vendor on this site I have spoken to personally about how I feel vendor participation should take place, and we have not had any issues to date as they felt the same way. I feel that all the vendors have been very respectful all around so thank you!
To Hunterworks point, when a site is strictly focussed on getting advertisers, sometimes members wants and needs can go un-noticed. As I have explained to several of the members and spondors here, we are not a revenue based site. As previously mentioned, out main focus is our members. Our very generous sponsors have made it possible to build a machine so that we may share what works and what can be done to the Teryx. I will not go into the costs of running the site as that is not an issue anyone here needs to deal with, member or sponsor. I will say that much more than just money goes into a site...and as the site grows, so will the cost, literally and figuratively speaking.
I did speak to PowerTrip in regards to a post I saw elsewhere...being the perfectionist that I am, and how protective I am of my members, I specifically asked him if he felt the same way about this site.
As your boss may have told you, I will tell you the same...I have an open door policy, if there is something you do not think is right, or a change you feel needs to be addressed, I absolutely want you to get in touch with me. Several people here will tell you that nine times out of ten, I will respond with my number so that we can actually have a conversation instead of just sending messages back and forth. Any conversation is confidential regardless of the method, unless you specifically state that the information can be shared publicly. Each and every member here is part of a community, but that does not mean that your individual voice goes unheared. I have a suggestion and feedback forum for a reason, and you will find that usually before I make a change to the site, that I get everyones feedback first.
As far as for NEVERENOUGH, lunch was great, guess next one is on me
you have a wonderful family, you should be proud.
Thank you again everyone for what you have and will do in the future for this site.
