Yeah, Luke, if we'da knowed, we'da 'splained you and maybe saved you from yourownself there.

PC, you might not be aware, but Dave (davem, post 5) is also a business partner here at TYW and our webmaster. He's the one has kept us on the air these 15 years.

And I want to thank all our moderators, past and present, and everyone in our all-volunteer army of helpers for making this 15 year run possible. That's what makes the thing work and we do appreciate y'all.

Definitely gotten a lot more than I've given here. Glad to have a little more than eight years here myself, and looking forward to many more. Congratulations on 15 good years, JB and everyone else here.

Only been on here since 2009, but I can attest to the database as we pulled up some of the original threads couple years back and had some fun.
This forum has given me a jumpstart even better than electrical shock....lol Because of stumbling across this forum I now have a huge network of friends. What I have learned here has been a game changer for my career and life. Thank you JB for creating this forum and everyone involved.

Just wanted to add my 2 cents about what a great forum this is. As others have stated, the advice is competent and friendly.

But I also want to thank John Bridge and crew for making sure that the forum is actually very useable. One forum I once followed completely folded because of one obnoxious “contributor” so thanks to the moderators for the thankless job of keeping us (mostly) on topic and friendly. Other forums have felt the need to “upgrade” their software, resulting in usability constraints that make them no longer worth my effort to read. This is definitely the most usable forum software I have seen, so please don’t feel the need to “fix” it.

Thanks again. Looking forward to many more years.

Thank you all.

Larry, My partner and systems engineer, DaveM, tweaks the software to keep it usable. We've resisted some of the updates you allude to.

My other partner, CX, does his best to keep things friendly around here. And our moderators are the best in the world.

I? I don't take credit for anything other than getting things going and riding along.

Flatfloor? We lost our friend and partner some years back, but if he should appear from the beyond, don't buy anything from him.

I stumbled upon this site in the Summer of 2002 while looking for other folks in the trade to learn from or give advice to. I can honestly say that if I have been conscious, I have visited the site daily. Great bunch of folks from around the world!!

Cudo's to John and partners and to everyone else who contributes.

I spend entirely too much time here....but it's worthwhile as I have learned TONS of information that eclipse even my 40 odd years in tile have provided.

I've made new friends and work associates here...the closest being Paul in Houston.

Joined back in 06' or so....Schluterville in 07.'

Heard about JB earlier than that. I was asked to step in to complete a job when the original tiler quit. Whole house, and I just came in for the MBR. The living room and foyer was a disaster, but not my problem. The designer pushed for their money and the homeowners called in John to evaluate it. He (correctly) evaluated all the problems and the designer got zero, zip, nada. Unfortunately, the same for me, as I was working for the same (now defunct) Designer...although it should have been a separate issue.

No problem. I found out what a good resource JB (and the forum) was.

Proud to be a small part of this Community....

Thanks to John and the whole crew here. This site has been invaluable to me over the past 9 years. I send everyone I know who mentions a tile job here to get the best advise. Been off awhile but forgot how addicting it is.

Thirteen years ago I signed up while working as a helper, to find out why our tiles were cracking when installed directly over cracking slabs. My question had something to do with thinsetting hardi over the floor as a means for crack isolation. I've followed along since that post.

As Jon said above, through the forum I've gained a network of friends world-wide and have gained the knowledge to create and enjoy a career that otherwise would not have transpired.

Congratulations on the milestone! And thanks for all the help. Indebted.
