    When was it christened?

    I have forgotten.

    This seems to be the first post made in WN&E, JK. Made by none other than FC.

    Although, it seems to have been moved from the lounge so its technically not the first thread.

    So it could be this one...https://filesharingtalk.com/index.php?showtopic=19080

    Thanks, Chalice.

    Ironic, isn't it, that I have no idea when it was instituted?

    I should be ashamed, I think.

    Well..it started as the Iraq War forum. As for an actual date? Hell if I know.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"

    That can't be right.

    I joined on March 16th of last year and believe that I am a charter member of the old World News gang.
    I think this section was officially named and opened sometime in June.

    Edit:
    Hmmm...just noticed that I have an anniversary coming up soon.

    Right, but there was a point where we (might even have been me, I don't know) started a thread to chat about making it permanent, come up with a name, etc.

    I though you were in on that, MN.

    Seems like there should be more replies to this by now; Hobbes and Clocker, Rat Faced, maybe Jetje and a few others might remember something.

    I think you'll be here for that, won't you?

    We will, of course, have a toast or two in your honor.

    As to the topic, I think you're right, Clocker-had to be June, I think, 'cuz the war was pretty much decided, and we had begun to branch out a bit, subject-wise.

    I can't believe we don't have the means to nail this down.

    The best indication yet as to how much time has passed.

    I remember being on the thread to keep it. I also remember it should've been called The Drawing Room. Ah well.

    Your "Congratulations To Us, The Opinionated" thread first appeared May 19th, 2003.

    And clocker was still posting in pictures alone.

    Hobbes posted about keeping the section April 19th, 2003, rather than "throwing us back into the kiddie pool [to talk about] boobies."

    So maybe its birthday is coming up soon.

    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
