    I know that many good posters are thanking Ian in the sticky thread he started about moving the site, but I thought this deserves it's own thread. So here it is.

    This is just to thank Ian for the many long hours he puts into maintaining this site, which exists solely for our entertainment. Those of us who have been here for years know that he has had to move and/or restore the site several times; each time is a major task taking several days of hard work, which I believe is in addition to Ian's real job. Then there is the routine mod work - moving threads, policing inappropriate posts, and the like, plus all the other administrative stuff that goes along with running a site like this.

    SO I just thought we should let Ian know how much we appreciate him. Thank you Ian, thank you, a thousand thank yous.

    I can't believe no one else has posted in this thread yet to express your appreciation for Ian. What's the matter with you people?

    LOL ... good one, cstjohn!

    OK now we're starting to get this thread rolling. I think we should try to keep it bumped up on the first page for at least a few days. Actually, I think Ian deserves for us to keep this thread around as long as the cheerleader thread! So come on, ye maties ...

    I agree he definitely deserves applause and thanks, but let's be honest. He's a fan but it's not like he's doing this free of charge out of the goodness of his heart. Patsfans is run by Jelsoft Enterprises, Ltd, and last I checked there are money-making advertisements on every page.

    We all love the product, that's for sure, but let's not get too carried away here with the saint-like praise.

    Ditto - not having Patsfans access makes me appreciate it all the more.

    The quality of posting here is as good as it gets and this is my #1 resource for all Pats news. Thanks for working so hard to get the site up again.

    No, with all due respect maverick4, Jelsoft Enterprises, Ltd is the manufacturer of the VBulliten messageboard software that I purchased a license for to use here on the site, and also the company that I have to pay an annual license fee for renewals, upgrades, etc. They have the best messageboard software available which is why I paid to add it to the site.

    They don't own us nor do they run us, we run their software here, as do thousands of other sites online. Needless to say they're the rich ones. As for us, we're not a corporation or a business. We're just a bunch of fans who run this site in our free time, and we're lucky enough to have all of you here. If it wasn't for all of you this would be an empty board, so I'm glad all of you hang out with us.

    Ian

    I stand corrected. I think this is a very high quality site; I come here first for all of my Pats news and have been doing so for awhile. I have to say I am very surprised, and also more impressed now, with the work that has been put in. Thanks.
