(Prior to that, many of us were at the VDMSound forums, now long dead.)

At this point, VOGONS is officially 15 years old.

Happy birthday VOGONS! :)

Happy Anniversary! So many people here who have been here ages longer than me. I still consider myself a newb. You do an awesome job of running the joint. Thanks for giving me an outlet for my retro passion, especially the like-minded good people here.

The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know.

15yrs. Time flies.

Wish I could do more around here but busy busy busy.

I retire from the Guard next year so that'll free up a weekend per month and two weeks and whatever depoyments in a year so hopefully I can get some more vogons time in.

I like organizing information so I'd like to scrape all the vogons info from the threads and dump it in the wiki (then mabye dump in an "archive" forum) instead of some other wiki stealing all of our secrets. You know who you are. heh.

I'm also wondering if we should do more at getting people who like fixing or testing games to setup shop here. Guess I need to go through all of my games and the various fixes and see about setting up a contact list.

When I visit other forums it's a pretty horrible experience. Controversy seems to be the rule rather than the exception. Glad to see we've been able to keep things sane here.
