Technically, the board was around for about a week before 1 Nov 2000, as evidenced by the first thread we posted (web.archive.org) (okay, the SECOND thread - the first thread was a test thread that we deleted) - but the 1st of November is the day I chose to celebrate the anniversary of the first board...oh, four or five years ago and so here we are now.

I know Aaron likes to enable ads for the users for the full-on ezboard effect but (1) I forgot about this when I switched colours last night and also (2) I'm too lazy to code that right now anyway. You can always try surfing around the archive.org version of the board and I promise you'll eventually see some attempts at popups or popunders.

This particular thread is an exciting discussion of a fake wrestling federation Hobbes wrote exactly two episodes of - just long enough for me to lose the tag team title hat and then never get a change to regain it OR go for the World championship pants.

One of those things I want to do right after I win the lottery and quit my real job so that I have enough time to do stupid shit like this is to go back and point you to "classic" threads on the old board, just to remind you that the Good Old Days were actually pretty damn silly and it's a wonder that my head didn't explode back then. Or maybe I had a higher tolerance for the message board tomfoolery of others. Naah. One could speculate that when there's only a few dozen people regularly posting it's a lot easier to let everything go.

Anyway, so we're all another year older. HOORAY.

Here's page 2 of that thread (web.archive.org).

I should add that our first thread of THIS board was meant to be entitled 'Welcome to... "CRZ" II' (The W) except we had a bug that couldn't handle quotation marks so that's why that title ended up the way it did. Setting a precedent that stands to this day, I never went back and edited it later.

Forgive me if a thread was already started on this, but I didn't see one. Anyway, what's the deal with the tags that mark new users where the little flags go? I mean, we can see by the number of posts who the new users are.
