I just wanted to start a thread where those of us who like this forum can say so.
It is a lot of work keeping up something like this and it can get pretty discouraging when some of the negative stuff happens.
I know that with me, a little positive encouragement really goes a long way.

If you enjoy the forum and feel Dave is doing a good job, maybe you would be willing to make a supportive post saying so.
Nothing negative here please.

I think Dave is doing a great job. Running a forum is a BUTTLOAD of work...And despite all the people who are unhappy with certain aspects of the direction the site has taken, he holds his head up and plugs away at it. As i told him earlier...I have a lot of respect for him in keeping this running and keeping up with everything that is going on. Keep it up Dave...We are rooting for you!

doy. The growth, the way the site loads no problemo, the mature atmosphere, the focus on cooking, the inclusion of vendors, it's why I have a few grand in posts in the past few months.

I love this site! I find myself looking at the site half a dozen times a day. I had a great talk with a knife maker today and he said this site has definitely influenced him in a postive way. Good or bad, there are a ton of great minds that contribute.

One of the best sites I've found online. Keep up the fantastic job Dave and company. Not only provides top notch information on kitchen knives, and how to maintain them, also loads of entertainment.

I too like this forum. All forums (vendors or not) are hard to manage and most break down at some point. Some growing pains and a couple of delicate issues aside, it is nice place to hang and I think the direction is positive.

Just to agree with everyone else, no internet forum is perfect, but compared to other ones I've used I think this place is probably the best, in part due to the fact that basically all the members on the other places whose opinions I valued post here as well.

Great job on the forum, Dave. I know it must feel like herding cats here, so keep it up. Everything is good here on my end. No complaints at all.

I get a little embarrassed by this type of thing but I appreciate all the sentiments being expressed here. Thank you :)

This is a good opportunity for me to say thanks back to you guys as well because this place is nothing without all of us contributing. It doesn't matter who you are or what you do here - everyone is important - because this is a community not just a forum. The community is what's alive here, the forum is just the house that we gather in.

I'm working on my 6th knife now, and I would not have made anything like the progress that I have so far without this forum and all the helpful stuff that I learn here. This is a good thing™!

I don't like to think about where I'd still be with knives and sharpening if there was no KKF.
I've learned so much thanks to this site and It's community. Thanks for providing a venue for all of this to take place Dave.

I spend way too much time here, so it can't be all bad. And I understand now that Dave is completely nuts (a professional term...) for running a forum. Thanks to him for doing this and thanks to the Mods for helping out!

I agree, my understanding of steel, knives and edge maintenance have improved tenfold since joining KKF. While I'm not quite sure where my passion for all things sharp comes from, I'm glad to be a part of this friendly and skilled bunch.

You wouldn't know it from my post count but I actually do like to spend some time here occasionally.
