Wow I've been coming here since 1999 way before this was even called Renderosity. What a great milestone and somewhat staggering as I never knew this place was so popular. Good work guys and keep it up I feel Renderosity will be here until the end... of time or the internet? :D

I've only been a member her for about 6 months or so, but this is a FANTASTIC venue for the digitally creative! I really haven't participated in any great way at this point (due to my hectic schedule), but I find this to be a place for inspiration, education, and a sense of community. Most of the people around me are "graphically challenged." :) They don't always get it, ya know? But I come here, and even if I don't have anything interesting to say, I truly feel like everyone here get's it. Thanks for this wonderful site, and I wish everyone involved the best of success! Take Great Care, -Schowler

I think that a lot of us would rather thank "You" for your hard work keeping this site up and running... it has to be a tough task to keep this site rolling with the amount of growth... congratulations and keep up the good work... Oh, and "THANK YOU!!!" :)

Very glad to see your growth as growth equals profit. I was wondering if anything was done about the trolls that use many multi IDs to comment on their own images and also to bother other artist that they may dislike. They occasionally get banned by the administration only to come back under one of their other ids and make trouble yet again and again there really seems to be no accountability for such individuals. Could this not skew membership numbers? And is there any way to make such individuals accountable for such behavior? Congratulations on the great success. Best regards, `shoop

Congratulations! I've been a member since "back in the day", before Renderosity, when Willow ran the show. Things just keep ketting better and better ... except the response time. I don't know how it is for anyone else, but Renderosity is really beginning to creak and groan and grind to a standstill while I wait for some pages to load. I hope that issue is being addressed. But, by and large, Renderosity is fantastic!

The site is growing, that's for sure...I wish I could, but I honestly can't say I'm seeing the "enhanced site performance" you're touting. The Members page lists 155,834 active members...you're somewhat close, but not quite at that 200,000 member milestone yet.

Congratulations ! Ive been here for 2 years almost every day. I never thought that I could publish my work in magazines worldwide, make some graphics work for publishing house...My dreams come true, thanks to Renderosity !!!

Well, this is all very nice indeed, it's great to have such a large community yet, as much as we grow - so does the technical problems. Lately it has become unbareable and I'm affraid that because of that reason I'm not visiting Renderosity as often as I'd like to. This situation I fear will hurt our repiddly growing community and that would be just to bad and a shame. I hope somthing will be done about this problem real soon...

I would like to congratulate the developers on such a fantastic site. I often use it for inspiration and feel quite bad for not being very active when it comes to uploading my own work for people to download. I love seeing some of the fantastic work people can do in 3D. Well done to everyone who has made it what it is.

Renderosity is such a wonderful place! I come here for inspiration, creativity, and to be around some of the most talented artists on the planet. I've gotten my digital art education here. Congratulations on making Renderosity the BEST art site on the net. John :)
