I'd like to express my appreciation :bow: to Allister for starting Cloudy Nights Forum about a year ago, not to mention being pioneers with introducing those graemlins to help with the "body language" . Back in Apr. of last, I still recalled wondering whether others will be joining us, I can see that much good discussions and helps are rampant in various Forums (too numerous for me to follow).

Good job Allister, thank you and may Cloudy Nights Forum last until the next close approach of Mars, the 24th century.

Hey Ron,

You are quite welcome. I'm almost blushing sitting behind my keyboard this morning.

The forums have grown into a strong, vibrant and family oriented place to share experiences with other amateur astronomers. I couldn't be more proud of what the forum members and moderators have built here.

May 2004 be the best year yet on CN forums.

So what is the exact founding date?

We should make it an official forum holiday. You know, deck them gnomes, and all that jazz.

From the "History of Cloufy Nights" thread in the OT forum posted by Allister...

March 1 2000 - Allister opens CN with 9 reviews. Anyone know what the original 9 reviews are?

March 1, 2003 - getting poor with paying the bills for 3 years, Allister starts banner ads on CN.

April'sh 2003 - Forums go live with 4 forums.

December, 2003 - Tom comes aboard as Allister is sinking fast under the workload.

Today - Allister falls out of his chair when someone asks for the history of CN.

Brief, I know but I'm not sure what you want to hear about.

Allister


Congratulations Allister, this place has it!

The oldest messages seem to be from April 21, 2003. I don't know if older ones were deleted though.

There was a beginners Q&A forum prior to the general discussion forums. I must have been one of the first question askers. It took a couple days to get a response back then :)

Great job Allister & Tom! Keep up the good work!

Regards,
Stacy
