Title: We missed the 10 year bash!!
Post by: futch on May 08, 2017, 09:19:40 PM
March 20, 2017 marked the forum's 10th year!

I remember fresh to this day, the heartbreak and shock at Rene's server crashing/hacked. BK and I got into a discussion some time in February 2007 and decided MaK needed a Forum and we would make it happen. Our biggest decision was who was going to pay for it  ;D I was hesitant since I already had a website to run, so BK stepped up and said he would if I took care of the tech. If I recall correctly, BK's reasoning was that he needed a personal website anyway. Thus the partnership was formed. 99% BK, 1% Futch  ;D

I obtained a database backup of Rene's forum just prior to the crash and I was able to port some of the cool threads. Unfortunately a straight conversion wasnt straightforward. I still have the backup but since Rene hosted all of the images, and the images are gone, the threads are useless without pictures.

Anywho, here we are.
MaK on!

All I can say is, as a newbie, thanks to both of you for giving MaK a pretty easy place to come, socialize, but mostly just learn more about it in general.

Happy 10th!  That's the Resin Anniversary, I believe, according to Hallmark.  The 15th is the Photo-Etch Anniversary, and the 20th is the "Only Available At Wonderfest" Anniversary :D

I've been pondering FB integration and a mobile version of the forum. I mocked up some screens a few years ago.
