Hi everyone!:) 'cause I am new in this site and I have been visiting it for few days, I'd like to know if there is a thread about the history of this site: when it was born, who made it and so on. I noticed, for example, that thera are people inscripted 3 years ago (or it seems so, if I understood correctly the profiles) that have already written thousands of posts! amazing wordreference-aholic:D I'd like to know more and more languages... anyhow, can anybody help me in this search? giulio\metis
p.s. I hope I wrote the thread in the right section of the site:confused:

    Hi

    I also have some curiosity to know how the origin of WorReference.com. I read in some thread that this is done by Mike Kellog, naturally with the help of the Mods, but has it some company structure? Is there some site with the "history" and "mission"?
    Sometimes I think of it, since I found all this Forum tremendously fantastic and even unique.
    I've learn a lot, in English, Portuguese and also all kinds of human, social, cultural, political, etc. issues, since I'm connected.

    Our mission is here. We do not have a specific page dedicated to the forum history as far as I am aware. Some insight can be gleaned from threads here in Comments and Suggestions. Here's an archive of threads. Some are purely technical but in many of them document the forum milestones.

    The WR dictionaries are a business, the forums are not. All moderators are unpaid volunteers.

    This may seem difficult to believe, but in the first few months of the forum's operation, twenty to forty members on line at the same time seemed like a busy day. Of the members who were most active then, most remain members, and continue to participate today.
