The first posts here were made on 7th May 2004. It seems like only yesterday when I decided to make the switch from Proboards. It's like Trigger's Broom mind, six new heads and eight new handles, but it's the same forum.  :wink:

Thanks to those who've stuck with us over the years, and the new members that haven't been around quite so long but have contributed to making this my second home. If it lasts another 8 years - now that really would be impressive.

However, I expect to be cruising on my yacht before then.  :)

Yeh, a few people, but they've mostly been spammers rather than disruptive influences. I've had a couple of BNP infestations. One of them appeared in the papers shortly afterward. I had journalists ringing me about him.  :doh:

Sometimes it's been a pain in the arse. I've nearly given it up a few times. But, in the main, I've made a lot of new online friends, have actually met some of them, including alexander all the way from Denmark, and it's been an education. I've made my own mistakes, regret a few things and have even deleted my own posts when i've been an ******** (admins ain't holier than thou). I'm glad I started it though. It took a while to get going, and have had to fight against the popularity of Facebook, but things seem to be picking up a bit again, so fingers crossed.

You're a pretty good bunch of people.  8)
