Hi all,

Just thought I would let you all know that sometime yesterday we welcomed member number 15 000 to Travellerspoint (username 'charmaine'). Over a year ago Pete and me set 15 000 as a membership number goal for the end of December 2004 (it was a long shot!!), so we're about 6 months ahead of schedule Considering there are more people joining every day, the next 'magical number' of 25 000 looks like it might be here before the end of 2004 All I can say is - WOW!!!!

Thanks everyone for joining and hope you continue to use the site!

It's nice to see a plan come together.

Sorry too much A-Team as a kid.

Sounds excellent really, nice to see things progressing as such.

Hi Sam (and Peter of course),
Congratulations on reaching your target and in the creative ideas that keep coming up.

I guess we could say that lots of people are becoming aware of my guiding principle that "a stranger could be a friend you haven't spoken to yet" and I could add to that "Travellers Point is the place to meet and make loads of new friends" I have made a lot of new friends.
Thanks to you for all of that.
Onward to 25,000 new friends with ideas, points of view help and suggestions to make travelling more interesting for all of us.

Cheers to all,
Bob Flinn

Hi there Sam and Peter,

This is truly amazing, CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Probably am repeating myself, but you've created a wonderful site here, so many people getting help here every day. Only today I wrote to Peter telling how great your hotel booking facility is. That's my first go at that area on Travellerspoint, didn't really know how good it is. And that's just one of many great features here...

It definitely doesn't surprise me that you guys have so many members! You've put up a wonderful site and kept it very well! I've been spreading the word to my friends (got 2 people to sign up as well!) about how much I love this site and will continue doing so! Congrats guys!
