What's planned, anyone?

Yes we did.

Dello started the joint in August 2007 and most of us joined early September 2007.

That is too close to au naturale. Even I think that is unpleasant.

Yet Lever, for one, joined on 07/08/2007.

Also, an early thread (link copied from page 320, the oldest page)

IIRC Dello asked the cuddly one to test the site early after the abortion of FB Mark 1. The rest of us can see our registration dates under the avatar on the left of our posts.

Or click on this link. It makes sad reading.

yes, aware of all that, it's actually quite easy to find our registration dates and early posts

Close enough (time-wise), probably.

More of a wake than a celebration, probably.

Likely to happen only in our imaginations, certainly.

Yup. That was what I noticed - hence the cue for this thread.

I wasn't indicating a particular day - more a decade of joy, magnanimity, jokes and occasional cricket chat.

Wasn't it a case of a Dello trial run in 2007, shortly after the exodus from a rumbling, crumbling Pompeii of a C4 Cricket? I thought the official opening (inauguration?) was then sometime in 2018. Hence the "ten years".

Anyway, we've had some celebration on this thread, a microcosm of the living. ~ 11 years on, if you prefer ... Wink

Dello added that thread 6 months after we started. It was potential newbies after all the regulars had joined in 2007.

I started a new job in November 2007 and we (FB Mk II - current version) were definitely up and running before then.

it's easy enough to find your early posts if you go to the oldest threads ... here you go, some old names, all posting in September 2007

Most of the oldest threads have been bumped in bouts of lardating. Cool

I first posted during the Athens Olympics, you actually worked out who I was. That's about as techno as I get, my memory. And that's a day to day proposition.

that could sound like a challenge ... nevertheless, there is still plenty of evidence of September and October 2007 Bails activity on pages 319 and 320, despite my occasional resurrections
