Happy 10th Birthday, Forum!!!

Post by Sam Gamgee » Thu Dec 01, 2011 9:20 am

The GH Forum turns ten years old today!! Happy birthday, forum! Happy birthday, forumers!!! Thanks to Lania to starting the forum, and Venividi for his fearless management since then!

Any long-time or new-time members have any highlights of forum history to fondly recall?

For me:
-anything SuperTed has ever said (seriously, people, how is he so hilarious?)
-old forumers like Theremin and Druid and alien2112
-meeting forum people in real life for the first time at NEARfest and Belmont
-talking about the release of the LotR movies
-talking about the release of new albums, and our gradual deciding on our favorite songs - since Shadowlands, I believe.
-the time before the thread "Word Association" existed. :p

We're pretty quiet these days - I feel like the prime of the forum was happening around five years ago. But here is hoping for many years to come, and many more albums of great music to celebrate as GH continues to impress the prog world!

I'm kind of rookie in this forum but always liked the warmth of witness and wisdom in here.

Congratz everyone. :)

Wow I can't believe how time has flown. GH is nearly 20. Our forum is 10. I miss the days when the forum was active. We need to pull the FB fans over here!
