I too joined pretty quick because of the promise of a new site... and the problems elsewhere that caused its formation...

Today is the official Birthday. :) September 7th.
congratulations!

I know the hard work of an internet forum ... I'm the owner of Germany's biggest SAT-DX-forums ;) And in this case I also know the high costs of that ... traffic, domain etc. Today I'm my own hoster :D

Happy Birthday, SatelliteGuys!

Herzlichen Glueckwunsch, Satelliten-Jungs ;)
 
Just my litte story...

I was #86. I remember it was a sunday evening when I first found out that Satelliteguys existed. It was posted at the other site and satelliteguys.us had just started. I then became a PUB Member and it was great to have a place to come for Dish Network stuff. I was a very quiet member who heard of Scott from the other forum. My name at that time was motjes2 and so I registered here. Scott posted one day the launch conference of the Voom and I voluntered to go. It was here in NYC. I went to the conference and was very well treated by the people at VOOM. They gave me all sort of material which has been posted, lunch, and sent home by taxi paid by VOOM.

I do not think that without Scott enthusiasm for the site I would have gone to that conference. I found that this place over the 2 years has kept an open mind and has not grown to be "gods" which it is good. This site gives every member of sense of ownership. By this I mean that your voice is heard even if you just have one post. I am at the top list of posters but I do not take pride in that. I hope that the post can help or make a historical record of the information. By making a historical record, it means it is researchable and accessible to anyone by using the search function.

I have come to some confrontations with people (especially in the days of VOOM DBS) and I think we all learned from those confrontations for the good or bad. I have been scorned by the Dish Network Moderators for bashing Dish Network as well. What I am saying is that this is all part of the fun of being here at Satelliteguys for two years. It has been fun and when it is not then I will stop posting but so far, I am having a hell of a time!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ONCE AGAIN.

where is the list?

There is no link to such a list on the site, but it is possible to get all kinds of information from the site by extracting it from the member list.
I use a program, that I recently sent to Scott, to extract some stats from 5 different forum sites.

For the top # of posters, you can see that with a simple query on the member database.

Top 20 Posters

korsjs, I considered you #13 since I don't count "SatelliteGuys Reporter" as a valid member.
