Thanks for helping us getting started here.

That's right, definitely worthy of some bonus points! (Although we generally encourage posting, editing, adding and, within reason, traipsing.) Glad to have you here!

Thanks for the getting started ideas. Is there a place on here that talks about TWW history. Who started? Goal and such? I love it so far.

Hi, Pamela-

Sorry I missed your question, and thanks for the compliment! TWW opened its doors on April 9, 2011. Wow - it's only been three months, and look how far we've grown! :) 

You can read some of my motivations for starting this community here.

Thanks Arnold, that was interesting reading. I'm spreading the word about TWW. Thanks again for starting it.

We actually need a "TWW History" page, what say?
