This was taken from the wiki of the old den.
These messages contain a bit of history from the Original Den. We hope you enjoy them.
Our original site was just a tiny little site. You know I can remember when BrGr first announced it on a site called NTC and indeed I still remember the night about a month later when I first went there. I can't remember for the life of me our host name, but the site was mostly yellow background with black letters as I recall. But I can remember the first time that BrGr actually took the time to make a personal reply to me by email about one of my posts. No, there were no PM's back then and there was only one forum. I have commented to different folk lately on how I remember how proud that BrGr was when he came on site to announce that we actually had a thousand posts by members.
He was so proud of that fact. That was a big day for us all. BrGr saw fit to save a number of messages of real value from that site before he deleted all. This thread is saved for those original messages. Again, this thread is locked and we will never add more messages to it. These original messages from the original Den deserve a place of honor on this site, and friends this thread is that place. No other messages will ever join them on this thread.
Thanks to all members who posted these messages, and thanks to FrBrGr for taking the time to save them.
I do hope that these messages mean as much to you as you read them as they do to all of us. They are a part of the history of the New Den. And far more they show just a little part of the life of some of our most dedicated members here. We hope you enjoy them!
Note... Melody and the Den described above were integrated from two individual sites I believe on Friday, Jan 10, 2003.
