March 14 marks the 11th anniversary of Wordsmith Talk, originally known as AWADtalk. I've provided a link to this thread to several old friends from the early years, and some of them may drop by in the next couple days to commemorate the occasion.

let's leave this space for them, the current regulars can watch for Anu's usual announcement under this same Topic.

It's been a while since I did any more than have a nosey around the site. Eleven years, eh? I remember back in the day that the cogniscenti confidently predicted that boards like this would survive for one or two years, tops. AWAD, Wordsmith Talk, call it what you like, it's survived for a lot longer than those predications. For the current prolix membership, keep it up. I won't promise to come back on a regular basis as I have other things to do, but I will continue to pop in from time to time. Congratulations to you all for sticking at it and, again, thanks to Anu Garg for starting it all off all those years ago!

Thanks to tsuwm for starting this thread. And thanks to Anu for starting this board. I have not only learned a great deal here but have made some wonderful friends. There have been significant changes to the board since I was a regular denizen. Blessings!

yeah, amongst other things, the look of it. as in pink

NB: AWADtalk began life on the 6th anniversary of AWAD, thus the Happy Sexennium, AWAD! thread (the very first thread!)

It certainly did look different, and it seems it was
quite a bit hard to navigate. Thanks for the look back.

Many thanks to tsuwm for starting this thread and reminding some of us early members about it.

Many thanks to all of you who keep this such a buzzing and alive place.

Many thanks to Jackie for the hard work she has always put into it.

Above all, thanks Mr Garg for being the onlie begetter of this wondrous space.

Here's looking forward to, in one form or another, 11 or 16 more years.
