Happy birthday site! Get to vote in a couple of years.

Well done @Dan (who I'm guessing was young and idealistic 16 years ago and is now a grizzled cynical old warrior) and to the others who 'broke away' and supported this site in the early days.

Thanks @Jethro for remembering each year!

Think I was just as cynical back then as well. Definitely better looking back then

Weren't we all ~sigh~

S'funny... I think I tried to join the official forum... I dunno, was it the Zorba one, but I joined that on the night before it was canned.

Then searched and found this one.

Yeah at that point they had a pretty poorly implemented forum that had nothing but issues, the site use mostly by fans was the good and popular One Eyed Eagle

We came Aaron had less and less time to manage it and there were a few characters that made it frustrating to be at, so we formed our own platform "Alternate Eagles" we had to battle being constantly blamed for things like hacking the manly site, that was an interesting phone call I received all because their site had an unpatched exploit that someone had exposed.

We were blamed for all manner of things and the eagle rockers tried their hardest to quash us at every turn all of which they didn't realise was just helping us with the classic manly spirit of "everyone hates us and we don't care"

That and our amazing members here made sure we pushed through and survived

Interesting and bizarre having to go through 'all that'. People are weird.

With the close down of the “ official
site “ I suggested to Zorba ( he was still talking to me then) that the club engage with Silvertails but he wouldn’t have a bar if it “ have you seen the **** they write over there” was his comment.

I suggested that if perhaps the club engaged with you , had a membership on here and promoted interviews etc that this might help in a fan engagement sense.

Nup, no way in fact no ****ing way was his words.

Such a dinosaur , was then and still is.

Yep, to be fair some of the administrators of the club have been great, Larissa and cuzzo both have engaged with me, timing was just bad for me the last few years with the personal mountains I've had to climb

I did try mate, and with the three CEO's I worked with, Larissa was a result of that.

Cuzzo came after I left.

Yes I know about your mountains, but good to see you coming down the other side a bit now.
