November 21st will mark the celebration of KarateForums.comís Half-Birthday. On this occasion, Patrick invites a member of our staff to address the community.

It was on May 21, 2001, that braved the unknown as it took to the internet airwaves. On launch day, Patrick welcomed the interested as well as curious masses to partake in a journey of communications. The one thing that Iíve noticed ever since I became a KF member way back in February 2008 is that thereís always been that one undeniable constant that can never be negotiated: Communication.

Communication is greatly encouraged by all its members, no matter the status held within, to reach out to one another by communicating.

This communication can be found in every nook-and-cranny of KF. Communication helps to lessen anxiety about any topics or guidelines. Communication between members can build stronger relationships, which allows any desired information to get out much faster and accurately.

Communication is very important to because it acts as a base for any action. When KF undertook the daunting task of reorganizing all threads, communication made planning far much easier. Wherever you search the community, itís easy to see that communication has taken the front seat in reaching an answer.

Communication at KF boosts morale and motivation. Communication allowed me the opportunity to become part of the staff, something that I value and cherish. I never take that responsibility lightly.

In closing, no matter where you are on, the value of communication is evident. One of the most important aspects of communication, which is on display in this community, is listening. Without successful listening, thereís no communication whatsoever. Listening to the members isnít a passť thing here: Itís everything. Good communication requires listening intently and carefully, which is what we do every single day.

Happy Half-Birthday,!

Very well said, Bob. I've always found that communication came easy here at KF. Everyone was always open and forward, yet respectful, and even new members are able to speak comfortably and openly with veteran members. This is the hallmark of KF.

Happy Half-Birthday, KF!

Thank you for this very existential address, Bob. I appreciate it.

Sorry for the delay... I was celebrating my birthday on November 21 and had some family/Thanksgiving-related travel.
