The last giveaway in the 10 year Anniversary Summer of Giveaways has come to a close. We saw a lot of entries this summer as we celebrated our 10 year anniversary. That's coming a long way from our humble beginning 10 years ago.
Check out our first "Why is this Forum so Dead?" thread. You'll get a laugh out of it. There were only five post 10-19-2004. Yesterday saw over 2,000.
I get asked a lot for some basic community information. So here it is. Thanks go out to Irrenartz for this great idea.
Our Top Posters in order are Yooper, GilaMinumBeer , and IrregularPulse while the top three forums are Beginners Beer Brewing Forum, General Beer Discussion, and Recipes/Ingredients.
The first year saw 293 members sign up. Of those 293, 18 are still active not including myself. Here they are.

After a decade of HomeBrewTalk I can say I've learned a ton, made lifelong friends, and I hope you have too. Whether you joined us last week, or helped us get started, HomeBrewTalk is a community and it takes all of us to make it the place it is today. My personal and heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who has contributed to the community, and brewing. The first written words were a Sumerian beer recipe. We are living history, stewards of beer for the generations to come. Thanks for making that legacy possible.
