20-Year Anniversary of Concertina.net

Recommended Posts

Seems funny - Paul, we met at 1998 NHICS, right?, which was in mid-September. (The only years I went when it was at Bucksteep were 1997 and 1998.) Your web page had been up for some months - my recollection says a year, but I could be wrong. If I dig around at my other house, I can probably find a printout of it that I made back then. Time for some archaeology.

Then again, I could just be getting senile!

And it has developed into a major resource for concertina players. Well done.

Hey Ken, yes, the site certainly started earlier, but it only officially became "Concertina.net" I guess when I actually registered the domain name, which apparently as this day 20 years ago.

 

Thanks for coming along for the ride my friend!

Congrats, Paul, and once again, thanks for all your work in providing this wonderful resource.  I think I was in at the beginning, or very close to it, and have enjoyed all 20 years.

Thanks so much for being here and putting this together.  I joined you guys in the earlish 2000s, but lost my username and password. But I enjoyed checking out the posts as a guest and finally re-registered a couple of years ago.  I learned so much here!

Thanks from me, too!

 

I've learned a lot in the forum, widened my free-reed horizons, and hopefully given a few useful tips in return.

 

Cheers,

John

Thanks from me too: firstly for setting the forum up and maintaining it, but also for the firm but fair moderation. There have been a few occasions when things were getting a bit out of control, but the moderation has restored decorum promptly.

Thanks and congratulations, Paul.

 

I came late to the game, I believe in 2002.

 

David, you're a master of many things, now adding understatement 😁

 

Joined as late as just seven years ago myself - have left my "thank you" last Tuesday but am now jumping at the chance to repeat that explicitely!

 

Best wishes - 🐺

And for many of those 20 years this site has been the first stop-off for experienced players and beginners - many thanks Paul and Ken!
