    As I mentioned in your previous post on searching - this is the best beer site, hands down. I really love BA and hope this continues for years to come. Keep up the good work.

    Gotta ask...do you have a plan of succession? To keep the site going long after I'm a mere memory...

    @Todd Thank you so much for all you do. I'm sure that managing this site is a largely thankless task (especially when you muck with Beer Karma, the UI, or pretty much anything that changes anything), Please know that, beneath the occasional howls of outrage, we BA's know you're doing the right thing for us. (Well, most of us anyway.) Keep up the good work!

    Happy belated Thanksgiving to Jason and Todd and everyone who helps make BA such a knowledgeable, discerning and welcoming community. I was a lurker in these boards for a long time before joining in and I have learned and grown so much in my knowledge and appreciation for beer during my time on this site. Hands down this is the best site for beer on the internet, and one of the best communities overall of any kind. To Todd and Jason, this community is loved and appreciated by so many.

    Still the only social media site I have ever regularly used. Thanks for the past 15 years, it’s been a fun ride and I’ve made some great friends along the way.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for being there !
    If it weren't for BA, I couldn't remember whether I drank that brew (and what I thought of it) or how often I have drunk that style.
    However I will really give thanks to you once I know how many times I repeated a brew.

    Yeah, it's sad to see what the other site has morphed into since it was sold. I still post and add beers/reviews there but my heart and soul remain firmly in BA.

    Absolutely! Thank you for providing this site. I was a relative late-CANmer in 2004 & we have seen a LOT of ChANges & transitions since then, but there is no place that I'd rather be. This site remains smart in the intelligent sense & its reviewers bring more to the table & a greater appreciation for beer than other sites on the Internet. I am proud to have an archive of reviews & I look forward to adding to it. Prosit!

    No, thank you!!! Beer advocate is the only rating system out there that actually cares about promoting knowledge and expertise within the community. I hope this grows and grows (but not to the point that it loses it's authentic touch)!!!

    I'm curious, Todd, do you have a screeen shot of what the home page looked like in 1996? I'd love to see it if it's much different from today's look. Today's look is exactly like I remember it from 2005 when I joined.

    Thanks, it’s a well fun site. I’ve bitched about the tight mod control in the past, but it’s necessary to save the site from guys like me on occasion. :slight_smile: it does avoid a lot of senseless problems.

    Cheers, Dale.

    I hate this site. It has cost me many thousands of dollars, and gained me a good 50 lbs. :angry:



    Seriously though, I do really get a lot out of it. :sunglasses:
