2-Pop has zero traffic, I assume because the moderators started off bashing FCP X so harshly and for uninformed reasons and offered no real "help" to FCP X users. DVXuser.com has very little traffic, and most if it is not so friendly. Apple's own FCP X and Motion forums are really super newbies that simply need to do courses at macProVideo or Ripple Training. Other forums I used to spend a lot of time with are all simply dead. Common denominator in them all was the really knee jerk negative reactions from day one of the moderators/senior (not old folks) members, that continued over time, as the rest of us moved forward in a positive direction learning better.

This site is thriving, tons of FCP news, great members doing really creative stuff, great mix of old (literally) pros and young (literally) newbies (as well as young pros and old newbies, and newbie pros and young oldsters and old youngsters and pro newbies). Nothing online comes anywhere close to this magnificent site.

So my most sincerest thanks to those involved with starting and are maintaining this site. Who all are they? What are their "paying" jobs? Do they drink beer, and is it Dos Equis? Or do they drink whiskey?

Anyway, thanks y'all! Great job! Keep it up! Let us members know what we can do to help out! Bravo!

Agreed! Who would've thought... The English giving us a site with no whinging?! :lol:
Maybe it's because they're so happy with smashing the Aussies in the cricket?

Anyway, I'm glad to see the title now states: "The Number One site... "Because it is.

And a very big thank you to you too BenB. You are the Oscar the Grouch of FCP.co but such a font of knowledge that coming here and getting the right advice is like putting money in the bank. Seriously.

This site will will only go from strength to strength as AVID and Premiere continue to frustrate their users with their firmly "stuck in the 90’s" philosophies about NLEs.

Group hug. :)

Oscar was an amateur and a child!
I'm a professional and much older!
Grouch? Me? You're so wrong...
Now all you kids get the hell off my lawn!

:lol: har har.

I just gave you some feel good karma!

And yes, well done on the site. I keep diverting people here from other forums; too much negativity on some of them, and no results to be found other than here.

FCPX Editors assemble (at fcp.co)!

I agree completely with all of it! This site has actually transformed my life in many ways for the better. A while back I would come on here and just download free effects and such but when I started an account started interacting with people on here is when my skills improved dramatically. BenB, you are a great help to me as well ( dry sarcasm and all ). All in all, I would say that with all the professionals on this site willing to help newbies at all levels, FOR FREE, is actually uplifting as well as educational. I feel like I know folks on here and I have never met them. I would be cool to post testimonials from members about how their "video lives" started and what they are up to now and how it all came about. Maybe have a youtube or vimeo channel for FCP.CO and let members video and edit their story.........just a thought. Blessing to everyone and thanks! :)
