PostPosted: Aug 07, 2014 09:16    Post subject: Eighth anniversary of FMF!  

Today is the eighth anniversary of FMF, eight years ago we started this journey, we hope to continue for many years.

We will soon introduce an important improvement, that some of you may already know about from the Spanish FMF. It is a database of locations in which you do not have to type the locality (except if the locality doesn't exist yet in our database) but you choose it from a drop down menu. We are confident that this improvement will allow a significant increase of the Forum's quality.

As this is coming and to celebrate the eighth anniversary, today we have changed the background color of the Forum which is now a light beige that we believe is more pleasing! ;-)

Congratulations, Jordi, on the eighth anniversary of your brilliantly conceived and marvelously executed "brainchild." All of us have benefited from The FMF.

Warm regards,

Happy birthday to all of us! You did a great job in founding this platform, Jordi; and many others joined you so that we finally became a great community of mineral enthusiasts. I hope there will be many more years for us to discuss about minerals and have fun with the hobby that unites us!

Cheers!
