I think that's a bit of an overstatment, because there can be better communities out there than us but still.

15 years and I've now been a part of it for almost half that time lol!
Very nicely done! :D

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.

That will be one heck of a project! Which wiki has been stealing all of our top secret information? :confused:
We need to bring the peck and electrolyte and rewire them >:)

Yes lets please keep things sane here. Some other boards are plain insane and full of people who care for noone except caring for themselves, even if it would cost them humanity :dead:

Frankly, I tend to agree with JoeCorrado here.
This is what actually kept me coming back.

If this hadn't been the case (no pun :P), chances would've been I'd never bothered to relog here a couple years ago.

Well, I suppose that you will agree that I clearly stated "one of the best..." - and keeping that in mind, I am sure that you will also agree that your statement that "there can be better..." in no way conflicts with my original premise.

I would say that you have an odd way of wording it- but I think that what you just said was that we are in total agreement. :cool:

Just another reason why I love this place.

Happy anniversary to the coolest forum I know.

I'm humbled and unworthy to be in the presence of such a fantastic group of people. Here's to the next 15 years!

Its hard to believe that a small forum like this can both reach this age and stay so active. So many die about after around 5 years.

I guess its the user base, most forums people pop in and ask something get an answer then leave. Vogons is something more, much more. We all have a interest in the same things and keep coming back for more.

Make me wonder how long it will go for.

The nicest forums I've ever visited on the entire internets (with friendly peoples and posts and stuff):
-DMCTalk (DeLorean forum)
-Vogons

"Neutral Good" forums:
-GameFaqs, haven't been on there in a long while though
-Bioware, neither trolled nor, brightly greeted with a smile

The worst forums with angry people that probably want to kill me, in no particular order:
-Yahoo, "a miserable cesspit of hatred and lies!"
-Facebook
-The rest of the Internet in general :)
"The height of strategy, is to attack your opponent’s strategy” -Sun Tzu
“Make your fighting stance, your everyday stance and make your everyday stance, your fighting stance.” - Musashi

Wow. An old forum for old games. In 5 more years this forum will be considered retro.

To commemorate the date I must now add an old school gaming avatar to celebrate this event.

Here goes...

To the Queen of Computer Gaming History I bequeath this avatar in honor of you. :wink:

Soon enough Vogons could drive! While drinking booze. :)

But really, I'm kinda saddened by notable passage of time.

If Windows 2000's ntvdm and PCI soundcards didn't cause such a ruckus, we wouldn't be here.
Voodoo2s aren't 100mhz stock
Geforce256 isn't released as a beta on New Years '99 under the Quadro brand
386DX vs SX isn't about a missing FPU

So the first posts on VOGONS are kinda retro.
My second computer's case is from 2002, I still use it.
