HAPPY ANNIVERSARY VOGONS!

Thanks to all of those who make this community possible and as relevant, helpful and interesting today, as ever it was. Keep it going for another 15 years- please!

And thanks to the many active members here who regularly offer help, suggestions and fresh content! You all are what makes VOGONS what it is; one of the best on-line communities to be found anywhere!

-- Regards, Joe

Expect out of life, that which you put into it.

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 🤣!
Very nicely done! 😁

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.

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? 😕
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 😵

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 😜), chances would've been I'd never bothered to relog here a couple years ago.

Feel free to inform me 😁
Or maybe I'm just not having much luck in finding good online-communities 😵

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. 😎

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 😀

I agree, VOGONS was the first forum I ever joined, and I can say with certainty that the people here are the most gracious people on the Internet.

I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.

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. 😉

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