    Wow. Never did I imagine that this little site I started nearly 4 years ago would grow to what it has become today. This community has helped thousands upon thousands of tortoise owners - tortoise newbies, tortoise veterans, and I'm sure even a tortoise veterinarian or two! Think of the countless tortoises we have, in turn, helped save. Incredible.
    Thank you all for making this place what it is. Thank you for being endlessly helpful, kind, and giving to each other - as this is what sets our community apart from others. Thank you also to our incredibly diligent VOLUNTEER moderators. Without your support, there's no way I could run this site.
    I very proud of the community we've built here and the things we accomplish. Keep up the good work!

    On to 100,000 topics and 1,000,000 posts!! :):):)

    A big thanks to Josh and all the great minds behind the forum. Franklin T. (the sulcata) wants to give a big shout out also because he desperately needed and needs the help.
