This version of the forums anyway. :wink:

Congratulations on the continued growth. :sunglasses:

Wow…four years old. According to researchers we should be able to:

  • Stand on one foot for more than 9 seconds
  • Do a somersault
  • Walk up and down stairs
  • Peddle a tricycle
  • Draw a person with a body

I think we can do 3 out of those 5…not bad…!

Thanks to @fearlessfrog for keeping the house of cards upright. We would still look like Geo-Cities without him! And thanks to our other volunteer staff @Fridge and @Troll and thanks to the members for helping to keep our workload low and keeping the circus in the ring.

Really? I guess I never hit 4 then. :slight_smile:

So gosh darn happy to have this site around instead of having to frequent the alternatives. And happy to contribute in any way that I can.

What kind of four year old can do a Somersault??? My daughter is four and she sure as hell can’t do that. Nor can any other four year old human I know.
I think @BeachAV8R is BSing us! :smile:

We’re essentially a F-111 tribute site, the forum is just a side business. :slight_smile:

You call this site a ‘circus’ one more time and I’ll ban your a… Oh! :astonished: Hi boss! Didn’t see you there.

It sure feels like longer than four years, but still like it was yesterday…?

You guys started this site just in time when I needed an online life line… Onlifeline…? :thinking:

Cheers, everybody! :beers:

You could always F111 this with a refreshing drink sounds better…

Congratz mudspike, my favorite bit of the net :slight_smile:

I often cite this place and how its policies work to counter the point that the internet is a cesspit of unfettered “opinions” flying off the handle at the slightest slights. May you stay as civil, friendly and wise as a community as you are.

This place… Honestly.

I feel like I found a beautiful secluded cove with beautiful sunsets and clear blue skies…the only people that know about it are its guardians who want to keep it safe and beautiful. New people are welcome as long as they respect the boundaries and look after the beauty.

I’ve met friends here who I cherish and I’ve met super interesting, intelligent people who educate and help everyone rather than use that intelligence to sit on a perch and look down and belittle others…

Mudspike is the best kept secret on the Internet.

Also I now have a picture of an f-111 for any eventuality. Which hasn’t come in handy yet but I’m SURE it will. I’m sure

Thanks for the encouragement guys. It is an imprecise science, and we do our best. I appreciate the thoughtful participation and the respect for one another that is typical of the conversations here. You guys make the place what it is, not us.

@Bogusheadbox that’s a funny looking Tomcat :grin:

@BeachAV8R you missed a couple of things off that list. We should also be able to:

  • Draw on the walls in crayon when parents aren’t looking
  • Spill milk all over the table, floor and walls with either one or two hands

Seriously, it feels like I was only just posting on the third birthday thread. I would like to echo the previous comments in this thread.

Happy Birthday Mudspike! :tada:

Happy belated birthday Mudspike!

Thanks Chris, you host a great site! Great content, and great people - makes it easier not to get so jealous when you show all your vacation pictures :slight_smile:

And cheers to Fearless Frog! This forum software that you implemented is so easy to navigate and use.
