    A Decade of APUG! Sept. 6th 2002-2012

    Hi All,

    I would like to wish our community a happy birthday on this epic 10yr milestone. 10 years! It is hard to believe many of us have been here for a decade. I have now been involved with APUG more than a quarter of my life and my daughter Amelia's entire life.

    Remember the old days?



    I have very vivid memories of being on AOL instant messenger and banging name ideas around when suddenly the APUG acronym came to mind. Little did I know what would become of it and how it would evolve. I am proud of what we have become, but the real joy for me is being part of the upstanding and supportive APUG family. I also can't thank our moderators and council members enough for the incredible way they keep the tone of APUG consistent -they truly make it look easy. They volunteer their time and energy to this community and I'm sure they find the results of their efforts as rewarding as I do. Also, a big thanks to our many sponsors and subscribers who have supported us over the years, scary to think where we would be without that support.

    Here's to the next decade, and a toast to the APUG.

    Thanks!
    Sean

    Happy anniversary A.P.U.G. the seven and a half years I've been a member has gone like a flash, participating in it it has really enriched my life, the ability to hear the views and communicate with other photographers all over the World although I don't always agree with their views is a tremendously valuable resource that it's a shame that more long term members who have a house full of expensive photographic equipment who can well afford to do not subscribers to ensure the forums continuation.
    Thank you Sean for all your efforts on our behalf, and here's looking forward to the next ten years

    I've been here just a few months. I had no idea APUG had been around for 10 years. That's quite a milestone. Congratulations! And thanks to everyone for the great educational resource. I've learned a lot here already.

    Big and hearty congrats! I discovered it after a mention in B&W mag. I've met some great people through here and I blame them all for the increase in my camera pile. If it weren't for APUG, I would never have considered 4x5.
