MacWorld has done good to see the value and not do a MacFix(Broke)It, thx and to Rob.

Rob, thank you for sticking in it so long and being such a mainstay in the Mac community. Thanks also to MacWorld for recognizing that this is something good that shouldn't be messed with.

When you have something that works so well, you don't mess with it. Something that I know was not recognized when CNet broke or rather destroyed MacFixIt. What they did to that site and community has truly been a disaster. The database of this site is truly invaluable and the recognition that the hints belong to those of the posters is one reason that I think keeps people coming back with more. I'm convinced that MacWorld realizes this. As you mentioned, it is quite an amazing thing to see your name attached to something and just as you've had your name in the magazine, so too is it great to see our own names attached to a valuable hint that helps hundreds on this site.

The only thing that I think could be improved with this site is a way for users to be able to tag or mark certain hints as their personal favourites, something like YouTube favourites. After as you say 13.25K hints some of those gems get a little lost.

It will be sad to see you go from this site, but Rob, I wish you well in your next adventure.

Thanks again Rob, and thank you MacWorld for seeing the great value in this site (the database and its community).

Best regards,
Andrew Jung aka skippingrock
