Anniversary 3 years with iPad forums.
This is a special day for me as it is my 3rd year anniversary with ipadforums. The following is a short history....
So much has happened during that time but looking back it has been an amazing. I started as a user this day 3 years ago as like every one else at time I was excited about a new product that Apple had announced. The all new product would be the " iPad". Back then rumours like today were fast and furious so when Apple finally delivered the iPad and it was really amazing. I guess we had around 5000 members at that time however I could be wrong, regardless membership increased rapidly. I lived in the forum day and night as after spending more than 25 years being involved with every part of Apple's world which included being a specialist reseller for some 15 years this was the biggest change I had ever seen with Apple. I am almost 69 now however I took delivery of my first Apple product in 1977 an Apple 11 plus. I own a combination of many Apple products which include an iPad 3, iPhone 5, iphone 3gs and 2 Apple TV boxes, MacBook plus iPods.
I am very proud to be here and wish to acknowledge my team of 3 Administrators and some 20 super moderators and moderators who volunteer their time looking after iPad forums and not to mention iphone forums and Appleforums. We are approaching 300,000 members here which to me is amazing. Our team is based around the world including of course Australia, England, Canada, Scotland and Malaysia oh and USA This means we can cover the forum 7/24
What that means to you as visitors and of course our users and or members' is you will always find some one whom can answer your questions . I also at this time wish to thank the some hundreds of long time uses who handle support for users no matter where they live in this wonderful world.
Finally a special thank you to our in house News team, our Tech Support Team and the Forum Foundry for making ipadforums number one world wide and finally a special thank you to all our users and visitors..... Thank you...
The bar is opened just have to find the key. Lol .... I will find it ok....

Let me raise a bottle of Poland Spring to this stellar anniversary.
My year and a half (give or take) at iPF has been an incredible learning experience and fun too.
It's been a pleasure to meet so many interesting people.
Compliments to iPF Administration and my fellow moderators, for making our community an engaging and safe experience for all members.
These must have been three very impressive years. I'm member for only four months, and I love iPF. What you built up together was a unique community, and I'm very glad I "came across" it by chance.

Just marvellous posts, Col with that sense of history there too. Being about your age, coming to the Apple world so late, I envy your experience with Apple products and these forums. Simply put, you're an asset in every sense of the word!

I guess I will feed some more history. One if my personal highlights is the creation of the regional forums.... Regional iPad Groups. At first we developed. Australia as a sub forum this exploded to some 10 sub forums including china. Chinese Dedicated iPad forum
To me this forum was special as non of our current moderators could moderate in Chinese then I met a lovely user csllanna whom volunteered her time to translate our rules plus moderate the Chinese forum. She is now a super moderator in iPad forums and her contribution here with out question is amazing. We are one of the only Apple forums that allow threads and posts to be made in foreign languages and just for the record I am open to adding more countries to our list if we can find volunteers to assist.
Another forum that I would like to mention that truly amazes me as it covers what we call hacking. http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/. I personably am not into this but what amazes me so many users are. What many of our visitors and members may not know is as of today we are number one resource for iPad hackers thanks to our dedicated super mods. F4780y and Mickey330. Not only do they offer there highly experience knowledge here but also at iPhone forums... They are legions
Thank you for iPF. I've learned so much here, and visiting with iPad users from around the world feels amazing. With the moderators keeping us grounded, I think I won't ever leave.
Good day, my dear all,
I am glad to be a part in this big family.
Especially the guidance and help from Colin, from other administrators, Super Moderators and moderators, and even from the top management as well.
This is a great platform for us to learn and share.
Congratulations Col, you must be up for parole soon?
