In August 3 there will be my 10 years on Anet, since my first shot was published. Yesterday was my another
My 30 mln views.
I have to say thanks to all who was interested in my works, I hope you'd enjoyed some of them.
And many thanks to Anet for the great time I've spend there (and hope I will further), for the contacts with friends and colleagues from all over the world I had during these years. I also really happy the old spirit of Anet is now renovating with the announced changes. It is really nice to see this place friendly and full of interesting bright staff.

Congratulations on 10 years, 2600+ photos, and ( ) THIRTY MILLION views! You might be interested to know that you're 5th on the list of total distinct views on A.net (not that it's a competition ).

Great job Fyodor! Still trying to get pics up here myself, but I was accessing the site a long time before signing up for the photographer membership last month. So in a way it's a milestone for me too, as I've been coming to the site for 10 years.

Many thanks guys, for your kind words!
Yeh, guys - 2003 was a year Anet attract many people. I've started to watch it since 2002 and made first try in spring of 2003. I don't know statistic but I'll not be surprised if 2002-2004 was the period the bigest amount of photogs have joined the site.
Vik, thanks - I know indeed I see nothing bad in word 'competetion'. I'd even say it good for all of us to be competitors, to try to make better and more interesting shots. However it should be friendly as we also are colleagues and funs of the same thing.
Since I've made it I worry it will be difficult to do something which I'll like more.
Yerbol, once I surely have!
Quoting ac888yow (Reply 9): difference being that I have less than 1/2 the pics as you and 1/6 the views!
You should not be worry about that - as I mentioned above - competition is important but the most important think in what we do is the moment you made a shot and you enjoy it. Rest of all is just plus to that
Andrei, mate, you know I have some more good staff in archives and they also became bidgger and bigger from day to day. The problem is spendings for HDDs
