    Hey guys,

    I definitely don't spend enough time in the general chat!
    I got the notification today that I've been with NamePros for 5 years and I just want to thank you all for your dedication to this community and for having been so welcoming when I was new. The industry has already changed so much since joining 5 years ago it's crazy to think about.

    I started domaining in High School and it allowed me to meet some amazing people both online and irl, it allowed me to out right purchase my 2013 Volkswagen (just one domain flip bought my car!) and I even got in early with bitcoin because of discussions I saw here on NamePros around 5 years ago.

    This is by no means my job, it's more of a hobby for me but it's one that I greatly enjoy. What started as domaining led to me learning the basics of DNS, setting up nameservers, then basic HTML/CSS/JS, then PHP, and before I knew it I was programming some basic websites but it all started with hand reg'ing names I found here in the "available" section and trying to flip for $10 profit. (spoiler: it rarely ever worked, but I learned so much out of the experience so it was worth it!).

    Just like Steve Jobs said at his Harvard speech "You can't connect the dots going forward, it's only when you look back that you can see the connection" I'm paraphrasing but that's generally what he said. I could have never known how much I'd learn about things even outside of domaining such as programming, it's only looking back over these 5 years that I see how much NamePros has positively impacted my life.

    Although I'm not nearly as frequent as I used to but I enjoy all the meaningful conversations that are created here :)

    Also shout out to mods and people like Eric Lyon!
