Non-Https Image Link






Wow, time does fly by when you're having fun smile.

With eight candles on the cake we have continued to learn, grow and evolve.

But HOP is nothing without it's friends, and I wish to voice our thanks to many of you.



A big thanks to all those HOPers who have helped to nuture and grow the community over the last 12 months.



Thanks to the moderators, Pele, Pyrolific, Flash Fire, Charles and Dom. And those that notify us when someone strays in their travels.



Also hug for those that have contributed towards lessons and articles for the site: fireNice, Pele, Dom, Mr Majestic, Paul Gleeson, Nick Woolsey, Jamie Dunnett, Doc Lightning, Liquifies Through Contact, PK ...

Plus the many artists that submitted videos for this years COL project.



Thanks to those that keep the website server running and updated: Dom, and all the staff at Digiweb(NZ).



Thanks to the many thousands of HOPers who support the site by purchasing from the HOP store and for taking the extra time to write such helpful product reviews. As well as the hundreds of entrepreneurs who support us by using our affiliate program.



Thanks to all the staff both at HOP headquarters and our factory/warehouse. Special thanks to Chris and George in leading the teams. And thanks to the many shops all around the world who continue to buy wholesale from us.



Thanks finally to you, just for being a part of this special caring community.



grouphug



Kindest regards

Wooo!
Happy Birthday HOP!
biggrin

I would like to personally thank Malcolm mainly for making this site in the first place, for without his hard work and dedication in the first place, none of would be here posting, none of us would have so many friends, some of us may be much much different to how we are now and some of us may not even still be here.

This website has helped me when times were rough as a badgers arse, and I know it has helped countless others too. grouphug
The love and support shown by members of this forum is legendary and something I know I will never forget.

All 42,000 or so members have helped to mould, carve and shape HOP into what it is today - a lovley happy smiley haven, safe from the nasty sharp pointy bits of the "real world".
If I could choose to actually live inside HOP with you all, I would, without a shadow of a doubt smile

Thanks also goes out to all the mods, for giving people second chances and not being as hasty and rash as some of the members ubbangel kiss

bounce Happy Birthday everyone! bounce2

(Oh and Chris, Im calling your bed wink )
