A Decade of DVi

The DV Info Net forum is ten years old today. The very first post was made here at 11:20pm on Sep. 5th, 2001 and at the time, I had no idea if it would even take off. In fact, after the national events just one week later I was sure it wouldn't. But we soldiered on through the dark days of the fourth quarter economy of 2001 and here we are now, a decade later.

I don't do "forum birthday" posts that often (here's our second, seventh and eighth), but I think ten years is worth a little whoop and holler. Mainly I'd like to thank all of our readers, including our unregistered guests as well as those posting with active accounts, and our sponsors who so generously support DV Info Net. I'd also like to thank our amazing team of forum wranglers, especially Pete Bauer and so many others, some of whom, like Edward Troxel and Dylan Couper, have been here since practically the beginning. A special thanks to our "regular" posters and readers who are here day to day -- you are too numerous too count, and that makes me very happy. To anyone who has ever submitted an article, a review or a press release for us to publish on our content side, many thanks to you as well. And finally, but perhaps most importantly, there's one person who has been here since before the beginning and that is is our tech admin Jeff Kramer, and to him I owe him a huge debt of gratitude for keeping the boilers hot for so long.

When I started this thing back on Sep. 5th, 2001, I had no idea where it would go and to this day I still don't know what will happen next, but we've made it a decade -- I'm not sure how that translates in internet time, but we've definitely still got a long way to go yet. Thank you all... much appreciated!

Re: A Decade of DVi

May DVi continue to provide the cerebral nourishment necessary to wade through the technical and creative challenges that confronts today's film maker!

Cheers!

Re: A Decade of DVi

Chris and all the other mentors and moderators. Congratulations on reaching this milestone when more than a few others have come and gone.

Your close attention to quality and integrity have certainly paid off.

There's a few innovations and enterprises which might not have got off the ground or if they did may have prospered differently if dvinfo had not been a vector for their genesis. Sponsorship has not been a one-way thing here.

Re: A Decade of DVi

Definitely a big whoop and holler for ten great years of DV Info Net! It has been quite interesting watching the board grow and change over the years.

Thank you, Chris, for providing this amazing resource for pros and beginners alike. Many of us have even made lifelong friends here--an aspect you may not have anticipated, but of which you should be proud. You are pure gold, CH.

And thanks so much, Jeff, for all the wizardry behind the curtain!

Re: A Decade of DVi

I take my hat off to you all.

Wonderfull site, well policed, well mannered, infinatly informative and I get a chance to share my meagre knowledge as and when required, what more could anyone want?

There's a good reason it sits there on my Task Bar 24/7/ 365, and believe me, there ain't too many as make that hurdle.

Have a beer (or three) on me, pay you back when you make it to NZ.

Re: A Decade of DVi

Congrats to Chris and all the team! And all the forum contributors too, this is truly the most friendly and knowledgeable video production resource on the Internet.

Sometimes I have to pinch myself just to make sure this is real, it is an unbelievably useful (and addictive!) website.

Re: A Decade of DVi

Congrats on the 10 year milestone!

On the internet I find some boards are over regulated, while others are not regulated at all - but DVINFO always strikes the right balance.

I'm sure its hard work behind the scenes; so thanks for all your endeavors in making this the useful and informative site that it is.
