Today is Thanksgiving Day here in the USA, so I’d like to take the time to thank everyone who makes this blog possible. As I have said before, Gates of Vienna is a group endeavor, and every year the job of acknowledging people becomes a longer task. This morning it took me almost four hours to compile the list below.
Like the Pilgrims, I’ll begin by thanking God, Whose help I couldn’t do without.
Next comes my wife and co-blogger: thank you, Dymphna!
We are extremely grateful to our donors, who help meet the cost of blogging and keep this site ad-free. You all know who you are.
A big thank-you goes out to our fellow bloggers, the members of the 910 Group, CVF, and Vigilant Freedom Europa, and all the other people who help keep the information flowing. A special thanks to Larwyn for her invaluable contribution.
Two of our most tireless workhorses are credited in several categories below, but I want to give them a separate thank-you here. Our Danish correspondent TB and our Flemish correspondent VH perform enormous services for this blog, supplying many valuable tips and translating copiously from multiple languages. They don’t always get prominent bylines in the posts, but this blog would not be what it is without them. Thanks, guys — you are the best.
Everyone else needs to be itemized. Your name may appear in multiple places!

Many people who help us out have chosen to remain entirely anonymous. They are like the altar on the Areopagus, and I will acknowledge them in Pauline fashion as the Unknown Correspondents, Translators, and Tipsters.
Inevitably, I will have left somebody out of the above lists. If you were neglected and want to be credited, send me an email or complain in the comments, and I’ll do updates accordingly.
Now it’s time to go eat some turkey and maize. Or possum and grits. Or tofu and sorghum. Or whatever it is that pilgrim bloggers eat.
Happy Thanksgiving, everybody!
Update: Added Armance as a Romanian translator. Thank you, Armance! Sorry I forgot you.
