    Brilliant news! Well done Martin!! 2uge4p4.gifWell done to all the team too!

    1st AND 2nd place is something to be very proud of.

    ~ I'm quite involved in a couple of challenges in the forum. I've learnt so much, saved so much and have made some fab friends. I post there every day or so, sometimes more often, whilst i probably only go to the main site once every couple of weeks unless i'm researching something like insurance or ISAs. I guess users like me help explain the difference.

    And to think that, once upon a time, MSE Martin wondered whether the forum was worth continuing :rotfl:

    Well done Martin.
    I can understand why the forum is so popular, whilst the information on the main site is so welcome, helpful and professionally presented, the forum adds a lighter touch where members can let off steam or have a joke with one another.

    Trying to learn something new every day.

    Still the fact is, overall either of them by themselves beat every other site – meaning the site has now been top every year since 2006 – pretty gobsmacking.

    Biblically so ;)

  • well done MSE, I for one am indebted to your site, both main site and forums. The accolades are truly deserved. If everyone thought the MSE way the world would be a much better place :)
