He was always on the lookout for new staff members(it was easier to be a staff member in those days compared to today). CW initially was restricted to Australia and New Zealand only, with Andre handling more of Australia and James handling more of NZ.

    James advertised about CW on CricketGames. He registered as kiwi on the forums and posted about CW, which had just started. As far as I know CW came into limelight when Daniel's (CG's webmaster) host imposed a restriction on downloads, which meant downloads couldn't be hosted on his site. James was kind to offer Daniel the web space by putting all the files onto CW. This way fans of CG were happy, and many discovered CW this way.

    CW kept on expanding slowly. James' confidence in staff members played a significant part in CW's expansion. He always used to believe in them and gave them ample oppertunities to display what they could. He himself used to contact people to be a part of CW staff (that's 4-5 years ago) and never discouraged anyone. He is responsible for bringing out the best from a lot of people.

    Andre's contributions were significant. As much as I saw he handled his positon as the vice-webmaster(if I am not wrong) in a responsible and mature way. He used to do the maximum number of updates and during WC2003 he devised the entire schedule for the staff members. Till 2003 he was the most important guy for CW, alongwith James.

    CW Forums used to be powered by a software called XMB but due to its limitations an upgrade to vBulletin was made. I used to post my off-topic threads at CricketGames forums, but when the permission to start such threads got denied in the Forum Rules I started posting here. At that time there was a guy from NZ, 13 years old(can't recollect his name now), FrontierPsycatrist, some Caption guy, etc. were the biggest posters. None of us had ever thought that Marc will turn out to be the one with maximum number of posts. Back then reaching 100 posts was considered to be big.

    Ahh, the good old days... why am I feeling like a 60-year old?
    Hehe - nice story Yaju

    We moved from XMB to vBulletin due to the constant hacking we had through that board.
