Wanted to offer a word of congratulations to Mick Bajcar, who has just achieved his 5,000 picture at Airliners.net

What is even more amazing than this milestone is that Mick still finds time to help many people, especially with older photos, and has screened almost 25,000 pictures in the short time he has been a member of the screening team.

Nice job, Mic Big grin

A great achievement! Not only for the 5000 uploads, but also for the screening time, with the team and on this forum and certainly not forgetting the personal advise!!!

Here is nr. 5000:

I really admire his oldies, having only recently started with browsing through my own oldies and finding out how much work it is (if only slides had EXIF-data  Smile ...)!

Best regards,

I would like to add many congratulations to Uncle Mick. This is a real achievement, from a real enthusiast of decades standing.

I believe that Mick's portfolio - particularly of those older images - is a really valuable addition to the site. I also know how hard he works in the screening team and I, for one, very much value his preparedness to remain active within the Forum to offer advice, explanation and critical help to members here. Long may that continue.

All the best, Mick.

5000 Pics is really an achievement ... and how you got there is even more amazing - I mean you are NOT uploading multiple shots from 1 a/c as some do here to get to that mark.

Congrats !!!!
