Hi! I should've bookmarked the page that had a timeline with the history of WikiTree, but I didn't. Can someone point me to it?

Thanks!

Thanks!
A very interesting read.  I'm going to have to read it more carefully and ask some questions, like how many active members we have at present, and how that compares to the earlier numbers in the history.
pretty sure the 319,406 number at http://www.wikitree.com/ is current membership. Doesn't the timeline include membership milestones?

apparently not - milestones for number of profiles show up, but I only found this entry on membership: 

16 October 2013: Sent e-mail newsletter to 44,000 members.

that 2013, 44,000 members reference is the most recent reference to members. But if you search the timeline for "Users", you'll find more info on membership numbers prior to October 2013. Good question Dave!
Are there other things you guys think should be included?
maybe reciprocal links with main WikiTree page & the newsletter? (maybe also enter when the last e-mail distribution was done, to how many & a link to where it's now posted instead)
Interesting - I did not know that this existed. I do miss the creation of sub-projects such as the Dutch Cape Colony project and Dutch Roots projects. No mention either of Euristo project, as well as a lot of other stuff.
It's a work in progress :)
Hi Philip! I added Dutch Cape Colony for you, since I know when it started. Cheers, Liz
Wonderful Liz, thanks ... :)
