    Ten years ago

    Ten years ago myself, K-Basa, Kanary, Fish and Visian rolled out the MOA forum. If I forgot someone my apologies, my memory isn't what it used to be.

    IIRC Visian was the one who kicked out butts into action; thanks Ian!

    On one hand it's hard to believe it's been this long, on the other it seems like a blink of an eye.

    Happy 10th to the forum and all who participate.

    jeez, I forgot! Thanks for the reminder, Rob.

    Mrs. Kbasa also helped.

    I can find 10 members who have a join date prior to 3/15/2003, actually 9 because one appears to be associated with smugmug. Ted Verrill, Greg Feeler, and Don Deilenberger are among this group...not sure if they were part of the team that set up the forum.

    Some were early Admins / Mods; others were asked to be beta testers and each one was indispensable.

    I can't believe I forgot about Ted, he's the father of our web presence.

    Kurt, Ted's role was as curmudgeonly advisor, Don E. was pontificator. That Feeler guy was pretty much kept parked in a corner so he'd stay out of trouble.

    I am glad you folks took the time to do this. MOA membership is great, but the forum is the icing on the cake.

    Thank you .
