Happy second birthday to us!
It's hard to believe, but we are 2 years old. Sometimes it seems like the day when we began to "invent" the Shelf was just yesterday... yet sometimes it seems like we are carrying this project through our whole life. An amazing thing, isn't it? :)
How much have we achieved? Good question. From the beginning we understood that with just few of us it's impossible to get everything at once, so we've never set complex goals and objectives. All we wanted was to become useful for someone. And, I think, now we are. It is confirmed by you sharing posts and drawings, writing suggestions and complaints, or just the fact that you update the page. At first we did not think about it, but it turned out, that users give much more than they take. And there are no longer just the two of us. We have already 15 team-members who contributes to the project every day (or every night) - project which is not longer just ours, but public. Thank you, our invaluable helpers! Without you we would not be able to control such a large web-site which Shelf has become. Speaking of growth, there is no longer just fifteen of us, we have more than 1,500 users and guests who visit the site every day. But perhaps the most unexpected thing was the fact that during these two years we've actually made lots of friends. True friends, who give you Birthday presents, come to visit you from another town or listen to yours complaints at 2 a.m. Thank you!
So, while someone needs Shelf, we will keep on carefully looking after it, and there are many more interesting things waiting for us ahead! Thank you for staying with us ... :)
