Hi all,
Thanks everybody, it hasn't really been 10,000 posts in 12 years, it has been the same five posts repeated 2000 times each.

I've learned a lot from the forum (its members really), and I think I was very lucky to have found it when I did.

cheers Darrel

But the same five posts have helped at least 2000 times each.

So the actual number of times you have help folks far exceeds 10,000 Post :thumbup: Not quite sure what the 'R' is on one of your post but its well over '1'

Your an inspiration to us all and an ambassador of the hobby :clap::clap:

Hi @Jayefc1
@jaypeecee what an amazing gesture you have made to @dw1305 I'm sure we all appreciate you pointing this out thank you

I noticed a couple of weeks ago that Darrel (@dw1305) was getting very close to the 10,000 mark. I could hardly believe my eyes today when I noticed that Darrel was at 9,999 messages/posts. Couldn't miss the opportunity to thank him. But, rather than resort to PM, I felt that we'd all like to thank him for what he has given us.

JPC :)

Hi all,

If it had been more straightforward <"to get accurate NO3 values"> I probably wouldn't have ever gone down the publicizing the <"Duckweed index"> route. <"I'd used myself">, but without ever really appreciating that it could be expanded into a more general approach.

This forum made me think a lot more carefully about the underlying science, and when I read Tom's (@plantbrain) and Clive's (@ceg4048) posts <"about EI"> I knew I needed to <"raise my game">.

I have become quite attached to him, but then <"I'd be lost in the 2000 posts."> .........He might have a <"spin-off career on YouTube"> (link found via cockney and gargoyle).

When I started the cycling posts they <"weren't very well received"> (re-found this one via the "kittens" analogy). It was right at the start of the nitrification revolution, and I didn't have the scientific references <"to show that nitrification was a lot more widespread than the literature suggested">.
