Progress Report on Nycfire.net
« on: January 23, 2019, 07:37:46 PM »
 Earlier today (1/23/19) I received an email from Joe M., aka "mack" of this site. He wanted to send me some statics and numbers from various sections of this web site.

Joe looked at the numbers that went over 10,000 post in a category. Some of the numbers are quite impressive to say the least. That's because of the dozens of members here who have contributed to this site.

 GENERAL DISCUSSION - there were 14,769

 National Incidents - 20,739

 Brooklyn Incidents - 23,967

 Queens Incidents - 18,497

 Manhattan Incidents - 18,267

 Bronx Incidents - 17,093

 Apparatus General - 10,609

 History General - 9,998

  Those of you who took the time and effort to contribute to these impressive numbers - "WE THANK YOU FOR THAT".

 ALSO:
  I would add at this time that Our Most Valuable, Mike D., aka "mikeindabronx" has reached almost 23,000 post

  The Most Viewed thread of course goes to "FDNY NYC Firehouses and Fire Companies" with a total of about 1,006,000 views. Coupled with that is it's second generation Firehouse thread called: "FDNY NYC Firehouses and Fire Companies - 2nd section" with a total of over 81,000 views since it's start on December 31, 2017.

 We have seen the skills of some members in model building, photography, and video filming, along with telling their stories.

 Many long term friendships have resulted from this web site.

 As a group we have shared the loss of FDNYs Greatest in "Another War Years Vet Passes" and "Another 9-11 Member Passes". As well as LODDS of members of the FDNY, NYPD, and FDNY/EMS.

 We have NOT Forgotten those who paid the "Supreme Sacrifice" at some of the most tragic events in NYC history and throughout our country.

 Certainly we would all agree that if it wasn't for Retired FDNY Captain John Bendick and his son, Active Lt Tommy Bendick, none of this would have happened. They too have become good friends to many of us here.

 Just about SIX months ago in January, 2019 a "progress report" was given.

 "Our Most Valuable Player", "mikeindabronx, aka Mick Dick - is now over 23,400 post with an average of 6 posts per day.

 The Most Viewed thread on this site continues to be the original, "FDNY and NYC Firehouses and Fire Companies" with now over 1,061,000 views (yes, over 1 MILLION views) which was first posted by Site Member/Moderator, "mack", aka Joe Materia. Of course that was later followed by another popular thread titled: "FDNY and NYC Firehouses and Fire Companies - 2nd section" beginning on December 31, 2017. Today that very popular thread having over 125,000 views. Site member "fdhistorian", aka Iggy Kapalczynski, has contributed much as well.

 Two separate threads started by site member "JohnnyGage", aka Dan Potter, has very quickly gained a huge popularity among the members. Started only a few months ago on March 24, 2019 was the thread titled; "Glory Days". That thread has already reached 19,000 views.

 Another very popular thread started by Mr Johnny Gage, as recently as April 15th, has captured the interest of many members as well. That thread; "Vintage War Lids" has reached over 11,000 views and was started exactly 3 months ago from today.

 We have several members here who have contributed their photos, videos, and rundowns of not only the FDNY, but also outside the FDNY as well. Thank you to all those who have shared their information with us so we can get a better understanding of the incident discussed. 

 Thank you to member "68jk09", Jack Kleehaas, who has been a very good friend to many of us here. He has shared his wealth of FDNY knowledge and information with us, as well as keeping us all up to date on "Another War Years Veteran Passes Away". As those FDNY Firefighters are called to a higher power. Considered by many to be the GREATEST GENERATION OF FIREFIGHTERS EVER.

 In addition Retired B/C Jack Kleehaas continues to keep us updated on the sad news of "Another 9-11 Member Passes", as the FDNY continues to pay a very steep price for the Terrorist Attack on America - September 11, 2001.

 We know that in the History Section there are topics that describe in detail, photos and videos of what some of the conditions were like during those very busy FDNY War Years. We know that books were written about it describing what seemed to be a city caught up in the middle of a war zone. Some of the threads that tell such stories are "Remembrance" by Retired FDNY Chief Bob Manson, ******* on here and "My Younger Buff Years' in which many members have contributed their stories as well. 

 We have shared stories and news of each other in the "News of Members" thread as part of this Nycfire.net family. There are so many GREAT GUYS here to thank. So many who have played a huge part in making this Nycfire.net site the successful operation that it is today.

 BUT - Without this sites owner and Administrator, "jbendick", aka Retired FDNY Captain John Bendick and his son, "tbendick", aka Lt Tommy Bendick - NONE OF THIS WOULD BE POSSIBLE.

 We also know that Lt Tommy Bendick continues to provide for us, the online FDNY radio feed through a very elaborate and very expensive system.

 I'm just glad to be a part of it.
