  1. Ditto, DO and all. Thanks for the quickening of my crossword enthusiasm.
    I talk occasionally (incecssantly) about this ‘blog and people are astonished when I start quoting stats like these. A grand testament to yourself.

  2. Phenomenal!!!

    Many thanks to you all for improving my wordsmithing especially BD for running the blog. ;D.

  4. Many congratulations, Dave, and I am sure that everyone who has visited this site will have been suitably impressed as I was when I first saw it. Long may it continue.

  5. Another fantastic milestone. Congratulations to BD and to all others who make the site such a fun place including the bloggers, setters, contributors et al.

  6. Congratulations and thanks from me too. Like many I don’t often actually contribute to the blog. However I do drop-in most days to check the odd clue and see what my fellow crossword lovers think of the days offering! I dabbled with the DT crossword off and on for a few years but it was only when I discovered this site (and learned the tricks of the trade!) that I got addicted! So many thanks Dave (and all your helpers) and keep up the good work!

  7. Congratulations! I was delighted to find this blog when l became a fan of the Saturday DT Cryptic and pop in whenever l can. My enthusiasm for crosswords and not simply solving them but understanding the clues and decoding them has grown so much since l discovered it. Thank you all for making it what it is and especially to BD for creating it in the first place

  8. I would just like to add my thanks for such a brilliant website. The exchange of thoughts, ideas & hints in such a polite manner makes it refreshingly different from other blogs which seem to have as their main contributors foul mouthed Neanderthals.

    Here’s to the next 4 million!

    1. As a recent visitor to the site – just want to say that it has helped so much. Thank you and long may it continue !!

  9. Well done BD and thanks to Mrs BD of course, and all the other bloggers for a super site. I’ve been tackling the DT for 35 years and since stumbling upon this site my knowledge and understanding have increased amazingly, wonder what I was doing for the first 33.5 years :-) Thank you very much and keep up the good work

  12. Having read all the comments above, I second every one. This site has really helped my solving skills and increased my enthusiasm for puzzles.

Thank you Big Dave for bringing all over us together and for letting us chat for a few minutes every day with one another and of course, for letting us share our enthusiasm for the Telegraph crossword. three cheers for Big Dave!
