What a difference a year makes as DX has grown in tremendous capacity. :nicejob
I could remember like it was yesterday that I was the only member. With no experience in building websites, only help was a "Website Building for Dummies" book that I purchased a few days earlier. Trial and error coupled with aggravation was the norm and still is in some cases. :giggle I had no idea at the time where the members nor visitors would come from as I knew nothing about how search engines worked, but I just kept on building and shortly afterward, members stating coming and haven't stopped blabbing yet. :talk :talk
When I started DX I had only been collecting diecasts a short time and was just getting serious about the hobby. It all came about as something for me to do in addition to the hobby, all I originally wanted was a personal website containing my portfolio, that then changed to a site to show my 1:1's and that idea quickly grew "so common" and then the idea of DX crossed my mind and as they say the rest is history. :happy
Here we are a year later. I have met a lot of good genuine folks and made friends with perfect strangers, that says a lot as I don't use the word friend lightly in this day and age.
As I look at the site today compared to that day 1 year ago, I can clearly recognize the difference being the members who come here and make DX what it is. Averaging approximately 2.9 million hits monthly, 800+ unique visitors daily and well over 125,000 posts in a years time, I think its safe to say that DX is definitely the Hot Spot. :cool
So on the behalf of www.DiecastXchange.com, I would like to thank the members, staff, visitors, sponsors and vendors who have contributed and supported DX over this past year. Much appreciated. :cheers :cheers

A big THANK YOU to Darrick for taking a chance and committing your time and resources in creating this wonderful place. DX has made this hobby so much more enjoyable and I hate to even imagine what it would be like without it now.
Thank you also to all the ringers who are working behind the scene keeping DX running smoothly.
