Subject: [ancient_waterways_society] 2009 was a record-setting year for Ancient Waterways Society
Date: Saturday, January 2, 2010, 12:25 PMThis past year membership grew from 39 to 66, and the number of messages
posted doubled from 363 to 744.
Bigger is not a priori better, but in this case it is. The larger
membership and more active message board has brought in more viewpoints,
more interesting observations, and more insightful answers to questions.
We have been fortunate that discourse has remained civil despite some
potentially controversial topics (our whole raison d'etre is, of course,
a bit controversial to start with). I'd like to offer my thanks and
kudos to Susan and Vince for their leadership in maintaining,
publicizing, and patrolling this site.
I would also like to encourage more of our members to post items here -
especially links to interesting material you have found while surfing
the net. If you click on "post" under "messages" in the left sidebar,
and then click on the option to write using "Rich Text Editor," you will
find that it is intuitively easy to write a post with a clickable link.
I wish it were easier to insert pictures into the posts, but there is
the photo album in the left sidebar for anyone's use.
Looking forward to an interesting 2010.
