My TORN Anniversary Can't Post

It's been 10 Minutes since I first posted here on the new boards.

When I think back to when I made my first post on the new boards (10 minutes ago), I get misty eyed. So many old and new faces. But in that time (10 Minutes), the new boards have kept their essential friendly character intact.

So now, I offer a mathom to celebrate my 10 Minute Anniversary.

Or, possibly, I don't.

Feel free to use this thread to congratulate me on my 10 Minute Anniversary.

TP.

Congrats!
I too am one of the "first agers" who registered all those minutes ago. Sunrise, sunset. *wipes tear*

Elves and Orcs, and talking trees, and leagues of grass, and galloping riders, and glittering caves, and white towers and golden halls, and battles, and tall ships sailing.....*sigh*...

TORN used to be so different [In reply to] Can't Post

before all the newbies started jumping in. Back when I was new, 5 minutes ago, TORN was so different. Now all the newbies who joined as recently as 1 minute ago think they own the place, like they've been here as long as I have.

Oh, and Happy TORNiversary, TP.

Just wait till you've been here an hour! Then you'll start to grow weary of the world and board ship.

What is markup? We can't mod here, so that can't be it...

Re: My TORN Anniversary [In reply to] Can't Post

10 minutes? Wow congrats. I can still remember when you first showed up here. Back when I'd already been here for two or three minutes. This was a different board way back then. *sigh*

I joined 20 minutes after Altaira posted the link, and now have been a member for 20 minutes. Oh, I think I am going teary-eyed...

Happy TORniversary yourself. ;)

Hiya back! I'm supposed to be running errands, but can't tear myself away from this shiny new place. This is going to be fun.

And the smilies are scary.

Re: My TORN Anniversary [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd congratulate you, but I want to be the first newbie to complain about the outdated format of these message boards and ask when TORn is going to get with the program. *hee!*

Seriously though, this is going to take some getting used to.

I know anniversaries are SUPPOSED to be celebrated with mathoms.

And - happy anniversary! Ten minutes - that's the emerald anniversary, isn't it?

I'm still awed by the sparkling sheen of this new place. It won't REALLY be home until there's a layer of dust ;)
