just interested in who actually began the site? Who managed to sort out sponsors?? How many administrators are there and in which countries are they located?? No real reason to know but just interested who the creator is since they have me hooked on this site now, checking at least 5 times a day to see if I have mail!!

Hi Tarik,

Thanks for your interest. This site was started by the Daams brothers (Peter and Sam) from the Netherlands. Read more about how it all started in the Contact page (see the footer for the link). As of now, there are two administrator posts (held by the Daams) and almost a handful of moderators (3-5 of them, me included). We also have members who have achieved the Travel Guru or Respected Member status helping us flag posts which are considered as spams.

About checking this site for new messages, in case you did not know, you can actually set your message centre to alert you via your registered e-mail if you have any new messages. Look for the NOTIFY ME link in your message centre. It's located just above the "Contact List | Sent Messages" links. This way, you will know whether you have new messages whenever you check your personal mailbox. :)

Cheers,
Hien

I am really loving this site.... I was feebly searching the 'net for how to travel, & where to stay around Europe.... feeling totally lost... TP has been a great help.... dare I say it was the man of the house who directed me here.....
