A Look Back at 2017
I would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe Christmas and new year. I hope your holidays are filled with festive cheer and merriment! D-COT has always been a warm, welcoming community and as I look back on 2017, I see it has only grown to be more of the same. You have no idea how much that means to me. 10 years ago in November of 2007, I wanted to build a Disney fan website. Never did I think it would grow to be something this magical… and it’s all because of you. I might have been the catalyst, but you are the energy. The non-stop, loving energy that I get to see every day when I visit this site.
I enjoyed doing the ’10 Days of Giving’ this year and I look forward to bringing more holiday events to the site for all to enjoy. If you have any ideas, my inbox is always open. For day 1, I will be selecting one random person from the Christmas 2017 Event thread to receive one-year supporter status on me.
I know I said I was going to have the D-COT iOS app ready by Christmas and I apologize for not meeting that deadline. After the holidays, I will have more time to invest solely on the app. I’m excited to see what 2018 will bring to this community! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
