Renderosity has over 50,000 members!

It is amazing and sometimes overwhelming working with 50,000 members, but it is never boring. : ) (Renderosity Team) Renderosity has grown to be bigger than any of us could have imagined. Thanks to the members for bringing to life a screen on a computer. To many this is a place of friendship, building, creating, advancing skills and knowledge, family, emotions, entertainment, stimulation, and imagination. We thought we would celebrate this moment, by asking the members - what this community means to you? As we sit in front of our computer screens and provide life to Renderosity by interacting with each other from all over the world, we lift our glasses high and give a toast. Tap your glass to the screen (not too hard - do not want any broken glasses or monitors)..... and make a toast. A toast to this community.....

I'll drink to that. ;] It's been a fascinating experience for me to be a part of it from the very first time I logged in. I've met some of the best people through this site.

"clink" "clunk" "ding" This is to all of us, who spend our time and share ourselves on Renderosity. To many more years, more friends, and more Art.

I just want everyone here to know I am extremely proud of what this site has become. It could not have happened without the support of the community members. This community includes some of most creative and interesting people I know. I would also like to thank the staff members who work behind the scenes to keep Renderosity running smooth everyday. Here's to all of you for believing so hard in a place called Renderosity that you willed it into existance. Tim "By serving each other, we are free"

I would like to offer my thanks to all the members for hanging in there with us during our growing pains and working with us through new changes we bring to the site. Whether good or bad, we always appreciate your input. Remember, this is your site. Most of the great features here were suggestions from members. We can't always get to everyone's suggestions immediately, but we have long memories and a big list. :) Many thanks for helping us to make this site one of the biggest and best web sites dedicated to compter graphics. Cheers, Russell

This is just the begining: I am sure that in one year we will be over 100 000!!! So, what does Renderosity means to me? Humm... talentual people, generous people, richer people if I consider how much I spent on the store(LOL)! What I mostly think is that Renderosity is THE RIGHT PLACE FOR ANYONE WHO LOVES CG! Congratulation to all the team! Keep on! "tchin-tchin!"

Renderosity has given me the motivation and confidence I need to actually get somewhere with what I do, and want to do (photography). Thanks to everyone!

Well, 50,000 members is just great...dont get me worng, I love renderosity and it has helped me grow as an artist, but I have to speak out about this... How about we stop humoring ourselves with this meaningless statistical data and actually count how many members we really have... I mean of course, the members who actually come back a second time after their first log in. So instead of celebrating 50,000 and beyond, how about you cut those people who only log in once from that 50,000... and the people who haven't logged in for over a year...and so on. Then, I wonder if we even have 20,000 REAL members. --Divide-By-Zero--

I never thought there could be something like renderosity. But when I came here, I saw a whole new world opening in front of me. Renderosity is the most important thing to me when it comes to computers and internet. Long live renderosity, and may it be forever!

Man. I've got to check in here more often... I had no idea this article drew so many comments already. ;] It's neat that so many of the people commenting up above me here are people I now count among my friends, and that 6 or 8 months ago, I didn't know any of you. That says a lot about what this place is all about and what it does. Salud!

It is really impressive that the page has 50.000 members, personalmene I am very grateful of being member of Renderosity, since it allows me to expose my work, but him but important it is that I can see works of other members of the page, and in this short time that I am I got big friends, really like they say but it arrives, I don't know if the 50.000 announce works but from he already sends them my congratulations.

Actually, I have my doubts about the accuracy of that claim. I would bet that my old member name is still in the data base and I would bet that some people who chose to leave Renderosity during its rough transition never bothered to remove thier member name. So realistically its more likely that its just under 30,000 members. Which, if I recall correctly is where it was at just before the rough spot. JanP

A great achievement....I've watched this site grow since it first moved here and thank all the people past and present who contributed both behind the scenes in code work and such as well as all the members who have given their time to help others and make art come to life in the galleries cause with out them this site wouldn't have grown to be the unique place it is :) Cheers!

i visit other 3d sites in the web, an i think this is the best. The forums, the market place, the free stuff, i think this is the mirror where other sides had to look theirselves.
