Really?  Didn't last long - I didn't even notice.

Edit: okay, I just looked and noticed.

You just gotta keep pushing forward. Nod

Though of course the true spamathons involve posting things at least marginally relevant to the threads at hand, which can make them a little more time consuming.

I wonder what great improvements were made to our beloved site that cold winter's day back in December '08

That was the day that the Board Announcements forum (precursor to our current Site Issues one) was added to the site. BA is not present on the archive.org copy of the site from Dec 19, and the first post ever made in it was Ady's OP for the original scheduled maintenance thread. However, I don't think the addition of BA was the reason for the downtime. It was probably something server related, though I don't know for sure.

I suppose it can be considered the date that forumshire first became surreal.

That thrice-damned Ady never fixed my registration - I registered in June or July, but for some reason I couldn't verify it or whatever - eventually I had to google around for a solution to the problems he was having with his own damn forum. Three months, it took! Or something close! Curse him! Mad

Edit: Had to go back and check - it took three weeks, not three months Laughing Still, the pain.

Trying to get in touch with Ady was like trying to commune with the dead sometimes, it felt like. Laughing

{{{Maybe there never was an Ady, and he was really just a political sock-puppet of young Eldo here, in order to contrive the ridiculous complicated circumstances which led to him becoming Admin of the forum and securing his island tax-haven to retire too! Shocked }}

{{{Yes but shackled and reigned in by GB's liberalism- so you embarked upon a cunning plan to profit from a sale of the forum, cut GB out the political loop, and instate yourself openly and officially as Admin under your real name!! It all makes sense with hindsight you know, and a lot of buckie drunken }}}
