PostPosted: Jan 15, 2011 10:38    Post subject: First threads of FMF to arrive to the 100.000 and 500.000 views!  

Carles Millan arrived yesterday to the 100.000 reads on his thread: "Collection of Carles Millan" -> http://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?t=397 He is the first member of FMF to arrive to this figure.

As we did in FMF (Spain) when another minsurfer arrived to the 100.000 post, we wish celebrate this succes with Carles, so he win a rock! ;-)
Bad luck for me, because as his thread is so good I should offer to him a rock with an equivalent quality... ;-)

Congratulations Carles, you be alone for the moment, but I believe that in a not so long time other minsurfers will arrive to this hit too!

Kindly, Carles wrote some words to celebrate it, here them are:

"We all must be grateful to Jordi for putting together this wonderful place for the mineral collectors to easily communicate with each other.

And I myself have also to thank all the FMF members that spent their valuable time to visit my thread, even with many of them kindly taking additional time to leave me a comment, so that it has just reached the magic number of one hundred thousand views in a little more than a couple of years.

This experience has been plenty rewarding for me since I have felt compelled to shot a lot of photos that otherwise I would not have taken, besides the opportunity of keeping the visitors' comments in my records, and my only regret is having run out of specimens to keep posting. However, I hope to resume doing so some day in the not far future.

Many thanks again to everybody!

Carles M."

Congratulations Carles! Your specimens are well deserving of being looked at 100,000 times, for your collection is outstanding. Looking forward to more.

Carles,

I have to admit that I helped you reach this milestone. I look at your thread often because the minerals you post are so good, and well photographed. Also, I think there are several I look at because I lust after them ;=}}

Keep posting!!!

Congratulations, Carles! We appreciate your very fine mineral collection, the fine photographs, and your sharing it with all of us this way!

And congratulations to Jordi too, for establishing the excellent forum that enables all of us to share in so many aspects of minerals and people's mineral collections.

Pete
P.S., Carles, I was just browsing your collection page again; I love the Chinese calcite penetrated by the stibnite crystals!

In Collection of Carles Millan - A half million views Carles Millan wrote:
This early morning this topic has reached the magic number of 500,000 views. I think a half million is a lot for a mere medium quality collection, so I feel a must to send a big thank you to all of you who have spent your valuable leisure time browsing my pages. And especially to Jordi Fabre for making it possible. I hope more photos will come in in the not distant future.

Carles is a pioneer, he achieved first the 100.000 views and now the 500.000 views!

Congratulations Carles, the same as when you arrived to the 100.000 views you've won the reward of a nice rock! ;-) ;-)

Jordi
PS: Between you and me... I like so much your thread "Collection of Carles Millan" ;-) ;-) ;-)

Hi Carles,

Good job. When do you plan to reach 1,000,000 ?

Cheers.
