Thousands and thousands of files were recently (summer 2002) transferred from the old Geotech to the new EJGE Web servers, something which made me realize how much work has gone into this Web work over the last seven years. It has also made me remember those individuals who have made this such a meaningful and useful place, the geotechnical website of the world. This is a brief account of those contributors, recorded here to give credit where it is due. I am thanking them here on behalf of you, all the geotechs of the world.
The following two geotechnical engineers have made very important contributions to W3G; instead of listing their names in every category below, they are listed here making up this special category. Thank you ladies!
Debra (Siegel) Melland Jennifer Frazier
By the way, both of them started out as geologists—something that we see very often—why? My theory is that girls are attracted to rocks, especially pretty stones; later they discover geotechnical engineers, who are slightly better company than rocks :). At any rate, we are very grateful for their contributions. Thank you Debra. Thank you Jennifer!
Many individuals have made contributions updating the GVL pages; but some have gone even further—introducing new pages/areas, such as these individuals. Thank you all!
Sheila Beavers-Allensworth Chad Grinsteiner Jeremy Basler Justin Cook Mark Brown Andrea Hyatt Ho Yong Fook S. Satha Manickam James P. Henry
These have contributed by writing, or by providing information for, special features in iGEM. Thank you guys!

These are those distinguished geotechnical engineers who have lent their names early on as supporters of EJGE and acted as advisors in general. Thank you!
Michele Jamiolkowski Kaare Høeg Nilmar C. O. Janbu Rainer Massarsch Norbert R. Morgenstern Mehmet T. Tumay
These are those geotechnical engineers who have lent their names as supporters of EJGE and taking an active role as editors (evaluating the papers submitted). Thank you all!

These are those selfless individuals who have spent their time and energy to prepare a presentation of their recent work on improving the geotechnical engineering science and technology for the benefit of the rest of us. Our hats are off to you all, thank you!

Last but not least, a large number of people around the world have sent in their thanks, criticisms, and ideas. Here is the first two dozen of them. Thank you for your morale support--you've made it all worthwhile.

In all of W3G activities, but especially EJGE, we receive valuable help from interns and other freelance volunteers. Thank you all so much!

Almost from day one, we have kept a subscription form page. Using this page, those visitors who thought EJGE was a great idea and this was a great website, would enter their names, and minimal other information about themselves, to register as subscribers. It was told that the main purpose of this was to register your support of this activity on the Web. Literally thousands of people have joined in.
Thank you all for your support and great contributions!
