How did I hit 12000 posts here? Someone please take my keyboard away!
For a number of years, these forums were in a bit of a bad way as there was no real support from iXsystems, and their solution was to conscript some of us as moderators. That being nearly an impossible challenge for a small number of not-entirely-willing longtime users, I took to trying to answer all the common questions I could in the form of stickies (many of which are now the newer "Resources"). At one point it was maybe just four or five of us mods and regular users doing most of the heavy lifting.I am a long time lurker (my account says may 2019 but I was reading here for two years before I actually created an account), who would be NOWHERE without a big portion of your 12000 posts. My primary FreeNAS server has been up for (checking...) 14 months, save restarts following 11.2-Ux updates. You (and a few others here) made that possible, friend.
I felt like this THANK YOU was a great and appropriate use of my first actual post on this forum!
If there is anyway I can begin to contribute and repay you/the community somehow, let me know. I am generally humbled by the knowledge here but I am willing to put in time...
