#3000 - Thanks Bimmerfest!

Not sure if 3000 posts is a milestone, but here I am. I find I more often respond to threads than start one, so I'm kicking one off.

I just wanted to send a "thanks" to Bimmerfest. I'm on my 3rd BMW and I've found Bimmerfest to be a solid source of information and exchange of ideas. I've become a pretty active member and I hope I've added positively to the mix here. I do tend to get cynical/sarcastic/annoyed/frustrated sometimes at some of the posts, but hey, I do try to provide helpful information whenever I can. So thanks to to all the other "regulars" and newbies too for adding your voices to the community.

One last note -- We probably all take Bimmerfest for granted, not thinking too much about how it provides this ability to share and interact. I became a supporting member about a year ago and hope to continue doing so. The cost is minimal -- if anyone else out there thinks they get some benefit from Bimmerfest, they might consider lending some site support as well. If so, go to User CP and take a look at "Paid Subscriptions". You get your name highlighted in the threads and you get a cool Bimmerfest sticker which I actually placed on my window as a proud member of the group.

I did so.

Thanks for your contributions. I'm a new member and have already received great benefit from the collective knowledge of this group. I also just started my "subscription" from your directions - I try to support all the forums of which I am a member, but just didn't know how until your explanation. Thanks again!!

Nice job on your accomplishment! I am working towards just 1000, but I feel the same way- I've learned so much from the forum I feel the courtesy to give back (however sarcastic my posts are ).
Upon reading this post, I went ahead and became a paid subscriber! One question tho... how do I go about requesting a few b-fest stickers?

I think you'll get an email of thanks from one of the moderators. If I recall, that's how he'll let you know how to request the stickers. I'm sure they'll welcome all new supporters!

Mark, that's quite a milestone. I look forward to your 4,000th post!

You are a welcome voice of reason often countering a budding "nattering nabob of negativism"
