:woohoobig:Happy Birthday Captive Reefing!:newtoot0vz:
~Established Sept. 4, 2004~
:WHY: Did we forget our Birthday Folks?
Captive Reefing is now 2 years old,
Dave (Dakar) & I (Reef_Angel) Susan
hold this site close to our hearts,
and we're always thinking of ways
to make it the best it can be!!
Look how far it has come in such a short time!
The best part is, it keeps growing and changing
Members have become like FAMILY!
We stick together when someone is in need,
and I don't ever see that changing.
It's just something we won't let happen.
Our popularity keeps growing,
and so do our topics!
Sponsorship is something we are going to be
working hard for this year. We have 2 at this
point, but the site is still a non-profit site.
We intend to always have Captive Reefing be
a FREE site! We feel all that become members
here are Reefing for all the right reasons, and
that's what we want to keep encouraging!
A price can't be put on saving our Reef's!
Starting now on year 3,
we still have so many plans & things
that we're either working on or planning to add.
If it wasn't for our Staff Members
and Members alike, all of your great ideas, and
your wonderful friendships & humor,
we wouldn't be anywhere. We wouldn't be
known as a popular Reef Site without all of you
making it one! The Search Engines tell a good
story for us too! Captive Reefing has moved up
quite high in the ranks in only the 2 years
we've been in exhistance.
Everyday we see new members join, so we'll
keep working our tails off to keep them here to stay!
We have over 2100 members, almost 30,000 posts...
Not bad if we say so ourselves!
Hey, just last night (Friday 9/17/06), we had an offer from a
Gentleman that felt our site is in direct competition with his.
He either wanted to merge sites with us, or directly purchase
Captive Reefing. We can't put a price tag on this site,
and would never consider it! We would never just desert
the friends we have accumulated in 2 years or entrust
them to a new owner! We would pass the site on to a long
time member if that ever came to pass, because we know it
would be run with the same principles. Keep it in the family
as they say! That was a stunning email.... Isn't that awesome!
We'd sincerely like to thank every single one of you
for helping make Captive Reefing what it is today!
Please hang in here with us, and enjoy the future upgrades,
contests with prizes, and of course....
ANYTHING that you think may benefit CR, please
continue to share those ideas with us! The arcade
has been a big hit, and we're glad we can provide things
like that, the chat room, the pager, the new Zoint feature,
unlimited photo album usage, private messaging....just to name a few!
That photo album is coming along, but I still need a lot
more help from you folks with your photos! I want that
album to shine with a lot more faces than I have so far!
T-shirts are in the very near future by the way!
(pssst...our son works at a T-shirt shop folks
as a Manager no less while juggling college to
be a Network Guru like his Dad)!
It may sound a lot like fish mush, but...
We Love All of You in Our Captive Reefing Family!
You're the best friends 2 people with a
Reefing Dream could ever have!
Happy Birthday to All of Us!
Angel & Dave
