    Hey Hey Hey - Its the Forums Birthday - 8 yrs

    Only just noticed as I was trawling back through some old posts. Eight years its been since the start Wow....and only the other day I was back tracking through posts seeing names of members who were very active who seem to have stopped posting, it did make me wonder what had happened to them.

    Heres to many more and roll on next two years - I think we ought to make the tenth a special one.

    Hi Bradbury , I have been here since September of that year, where has the time gone? Yes it would be nice to mark the 10th anniversary , quite a few have fallen of the radar since those early days, age, illness many different reasons why I expect.

    It was quite active at times with so many threads reviews of blogs going we had one most days , although I think since Andrew left the Facebook page has been more encouraged then the forum I look in when I can , it doesn't matter how long you have been cruising you can still pick up tips.CG

      Happy Birthday to the forum. Perhaps Jordan can sort out a cruise for us all to attend for the 10th birthday celebrations. Well done to all of you who have been here from the start .................................................. .......................Carol

        Happy birthday to us! It has been a very full eight years. Thanks to all who offered support, via the Cyber Bar, when I most needed it. It would be great to celebrate ten years!

          I don't think there are many of us 'Day One'rs' posting now.

          Can we have a Roll Call for The Cruisedot Test Pilots?...........Wilba

            It would be great to mark the 10th anniversary and the way time flies it will soon be here.

            The forum has its ups and downs but I am still loving it and long may it continue...Carol

              Of course it does. You were one of 'the few' test pilots, as was I.

              I too was slightly late but I had a note from my mother as I was in New York on the actual 'live' day, which is why I can never forget the live date as the day after, 25th, N.Y was in shock over Michael Jackson!

              Love the idea of a 10th birthday celebration!!!

              Happy Birthday

                Could we charter a whole ship? Maybe one of the smaller ones?

                Companies must have done that, and we could all chip in ...Carol

                          Issyalex is still very much a contributor as is Calgrey, although she has taken a back seat over the last year or two for personal reasons. We are still in touch.

                            I was busy starting a new job in June 2009 but joined in August . Eight years has certainly shot by and so many things have changed. I've made some lovely forum friends though and a ten year anniversary cruise sounds like a wonderful idea.

                              I guess I assumed that the forum had been going for much longer than that!

                              I’ve been a member since Spring 2012 so 5 years. Doesn’t feel like that long but it’s certainly the forum I spend most of my time!
