MichaelB smashes through the 10,000 sighting barrier!

A very sincere congratulations to CNM administrator Michael B for reaching a monumental milestone - TEN THOUSAND SIGHTINGS.

If it wasn't for all the assistance MichaelB has given me with refining and shaping the platform over many years, I think he would have likely hit this milestone much earlier!

I am very glad to see that he's been able to report a few more sightings lately and quietly crept over the 10K barrier the other day while nobody was looking.

I want to take this opportunity to genuinely thank MichaelB for everything he has done and continues to do for NatureMapr. Not only has MichaelB helped us nurture and grow our amazing community, but he has invested countless hours working with me directly to identify and test bugs, develop new ideas and shape functionality so that the platform can be the best it can be.

MichaelB joined CNM on 15 May 2014 when Michael Mulvaney and I asked if he'd be interested in helping us out as NatureMapr's first Administrator that wasn't Michael M or myself.

Michaelb is also one of the very few people that have developed an intimate understanding of the inner workings of the platform and every single feature from end to end! He is typically my first "go to" person when we need extremely thorough, reliable and accurate testing and user experience advice. He has also supported me through some challenging times as the platform became successful and went through some growing pains.

Congratulations MB on hitting 10K sightings - CNM and NatureMapr wouldn't be what it is without your tireless efforts.

What an incredible achievement and contribution to the knowledge of future generations that also coincides wonderfully with NatureMapr's 10 year anniversary.

Thanks Aaron and everyone. It has been an amazing journey, building this knowledge base up from virtually nothing. It has also been a privilege to work with such talented and good-hearted people. The natural world is fascinating and beautiful. I'm glad to be able to help others who care about our Aussie plants and animals and to share my photos with people who appreciate them.
