Congratulations and many thanks to Delfim, Mark, Twistone, rdills and all others who contribute to our great front page!
Many of us fought it or were not happy about it at first, but kudos to our founder, Hayden James for having the foresight to convert this to a "smartphone" site! Look at all the great people and knowledge base we have here now on all the different platforms!
You guys have helped bring PinStack back to life with the wealth of news on our front page. You are instrumental in helping people realize we are so much more than a "BlackBerry-only" site now.
Hi Guys. How do I start this post ? So many things to say...
Mark. Thanks very much. As you know I wasn´t even aware of this feat, until you warned me 2 weeks ago. And you could have dispensed the Mr. formality, right? Thanks again, essentially because I consider you the mentor of the writers that today contribute to Pinstack's front page.
But allow me to go back a few years. I announced the purchase of a BB9700 in a post. I was probably one of first stackers to get one. A week later I posted a thread with my impressions of it. And cherrichiodo (I miss her on the stacks), put it on first page. I was elated. Fantastic... I've never forgotten that tribute. And here I thank cherri, again, for the fact and consideration.
Pinstack soon after became a dull site. I remember articles remaining unchanged on the home page for a week or more. Then, I remember a Mark Stone sprucing up the front page. Nice, fresh new articles for all of us. Soon afterwards Escalate Media came on the scene (maybe I have this in the wrong order, but the objective is the same). Lee and John brought all of us stackers some hope for the site. In the meantime Mark Stone plodded on...thankfully.
I suggested to the "boss" RogerG if I could help as well. The answer was positive. The 18th of October 2011 was my debut. My agreements with all concerned, especially Lee and RogerG, were easy, straight and honest. Cordial and good (great personalities, with great character these stackers). An example for all.
What brought us together was the common objective of establishing Pinstack as a great source of tech-news. A respected forum, where all members and visitors were well treated, with cordiality. A rare find these days...
And then, greatfully, rdills, twistone, lak611, Papamag, dushdavj even RogerG (the boss: Hi Boss !) and others chipped in... Mark Stone, needless to say, is a permanent feature of Pinstack, and will soon Bat the Grand as well (keeping an eye out).. All this just to say that Pinstack, today, is alive. Well and healthy !
Ok, tha's it.
To ALL STACKERS on PS, to RogerG and Mark Stone, to all the Mods (yes Chokem, you, Lord of Pinstack !) to Lee and John at EscalateMedia, my sincere thanks.
I'm honored to be part of this magnificient site.
For you all I'm ready to go another 1000.
Actually that's exactly what I'm going to do now. I'm running late... Ciao.
