Hi Jordi - congratulations! It is a great resource. I am busy working on the index for my forthcoming book on the Minerals of the English Midlands - very hard work, but it does mean that I am nearing the end of the project!

Best wishes

Roy

Hi everyone.

Happy birthday and congratulations.

It´s very nice to enjoy with many mineral collectors around the world in this website.

Learning everyday with the mineralogy doctors, is also gorgeous.

Thank you Jordi.

Regards.

Congratulations! It is nice to find an online community of other persons interested in minerals in a serious manner. I find such people at shows, if I go to the local Mineralogy Department at the University, but most of my friends, sadly, find only passing interest in my hobby of minerals and even in my collection. My only suggestion if you can at some point change to vBulletin software [or similar] one can post url addresses without problems, even post videos. Alternatively, have some computer programmer modify this program. Anyway, its nice to have found this place!....

Congratulations to Jordi and his website forum! Twelve years young and going strong.

BTW, Jordi is also a TV star. Last eve on our PBS channel, I saw Jordi on the Mineral Explorers show. It was the episode (repeat I think) going thru Spain to Navajun for pyrites.

More congratulations, Jordi, for creating and maintaining this Forum, and to all the staff & monderators and everyone!

But, gosh, I'm writing this, but we may be in trouble if every one of the 9905 Forum registered users post likewise their appreciation to Jordi!

thank you Jordi and the other moderator, and member.
This forum is a great source of knowledge and pleasure.

obvious in other forums.

Peter, yes we can post videos in FMF, as is explained here: Now we can add videos
Regarding URL and e-mail addresses, these are a very common door to spam and undesired advertising which must stay closed to avoid extra work to administrators. Even with these precautions time to time some post with commercial content or even nasty are removed "by hand" by the administrators team and every day our "Defense Systems" blocks literally hundreds attempts of post from robots (spiders)
Best regards.

Congratulations to Jordi and to all the FMF staff, site admins and moderators, but also to all the active participants!
Actually you should receive congratulations every day for the way this forum is managed.
FMF is a digital dinosaur but has never looked so lively.
