A huge thank you to Jarkko and to everyone else who has made this forum such a special place. Little did I know when I first joined what an incredible experience it would be. I have met so many wonderful people, been to places I have always longed to visit and been to other places that I had no desire to visit but thoroughly enjoyed nonetheless! :D

So many ways to simply say "THANK YOU".

I am reminded of my early days on the forum and this was my third posted thread:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=20233#p207730

....nothing has changed except I have got to know many more of you since then :D
ah yes, it has changed!
Rauli recently managed to make some new tricks that eliminated 99,9 % of our spam problems
Much appreciated!

Happy Official Anniversary. :D This is without a doubt the best place to be!

Happy Birthday to The Leonard Cohen Forum. Thanks to Jarkko and company for starting this adventure. We would never have all the news, reports, insights, and photos that we do without members from all over the world contributing. The Forum has expanded our Cohen community like nothing else before or since. It was the center of our world when nothing was happening and remains the center when everything is happening. Again, thank you Jarkko, thank you to your helpful and patient family and thank you Leonard Cohen, for inspiring all this.

Happy 10 th Birthday Forum. Little did I know when I joined one Monday evening in December almost five years ago what an impact this special place would have on my life. I like many other have met some great people at concerts and events. I have been part of some really interesting discussions here and played a game or two! Plus Iwill never forget when I first read the announcement of the 2008 tour!

Thank you Jarkko and all the other moderators for making the forum such a special place to come to!
Here's to another ten years!

Marsha

Dear Jarkko,

Congratulations on 10 years of the official Leonard Cohen Forum! Your devotion to the words and music of Leonard throughout so many years, and your magnificent ability to manipulate the many ups and downs of administering a Forum filled with multiple personalities (plus spam) is truly amazing. Bravo!!

I know you've not been alone in this endeavour, so many thanks also to Rauli, beautiful Eija, and of course to Marie, Tom, and all the moderators.

Many thanks for teaching us patience....and for sharing so much joy and happiness!

All the best...always,
Diana xoxo

I would like to also thank you Jarkko and everyone who keeps this great Forum running smoothly. I have really enjoyed my two years as a member and look forward each day to reading the latest posts from around the world.

We have so much to look forward to don't we? :D

Congratulations Jarkko on ten great years.

Yes, a special thanks to Marie for joining in with the other moderators here, and taking a much more active role in being one. Without her assistance in sending out information and then so actively assisting people in negotiating this site and early sales, many would have been left wanting. The role she's played here alongside Jarkko has been immeasurable, and will most assuredly continue to be that and more as time goes on.

Marie jumped right in and became visible in both greeting and assisting new people in our world. There's an image that only those who went to the Berlin Event may recall, if they went along that evening... but we had a lovely young man join our Event group and as we were trying to negotiate walking to the correct bus stop one afternoon for getting to the particular event that evening, he stood at a busy street corner, beneath his umbrella in the rain and with a huge smile and friendly voice, pointed each of us as we came along to where we needed to go. It's an image that hearkens to how Marie has been since taking on her 'moderator' role here, in addition to her administrative roles elsewhere. A huge labour of love. Thanks, Marie, for your, albeit more recent, immense help to Jarkko and this wonderful site. Thanks to the other moderators, as well... and to Rauli's genius in doing such a great job with the Spam issue!

Thanks to all... many thanks.
