It is almost the end of another year for the Asiawind Forums.
There are many newcomers in all forums. It may be a time to review some history. Here is a chronology of the establishments:
Jan12, 2001 Chinese Culture
Jan 12, 2001 Hakka
Nov 5, 2001 Our World
Feb 8, 2002 Overseas Chinese
Mar 15, 2003 Science and Technology
Apr 4, 2003 Life!
May 12, 2003 Economy and Business
Jul 2, 2003 Health and Medicine
Apr 2, 2005 Foods and Recipes
These forums are participated by people from some two dozen countries in all continents. There are now 1315 registrants to the forums and many many more readers who are not registered.
Out of all the forums, "Our World" has the most visitors and posts, now almost up to 100,000 even after deleting many irrelevant ones.
Most of the writers also participate in other forums. We are proud that some writers consider this as the best managed forum they have been to, and that include the forums hosted by some most important newspapers in the world.
The success of the forum is a demonstration of diversity and collective wisdom. Through discussions and debates, and the insistence on reliable references of facts, hopefully all may have a better understanding of the world we share.
I would like to thank all moderators for their relentless effort to upkeep the forum as a spam-free one. Of course, each of the forumites including myself has all to thank on providing some thoughts that any individual may have overlooked.
