There is so much information in that thread... It really spoke to me !

God bless,

You're a Newb, so you don't remember those. I'd say about 2 years back there were TWfirst volume ___... I don't remember what they were about though. I think my first post was in a TWfirst volume.

If we start the Innuendo threads again, AA61hvy will only think he has another outlet to be "funny" and end up ruining them. He or 777236ER would anyway.  Big grin

I think they started somewhere around May/June 2000.. My memory is failing in old age!  Big grin  Big grin.

Up until volume 10 or so they absolutely kicked ass, then it was just a downward spiral from there on Big grin

And how did these threads begin then ?

Just curious, mind you.

An Argument between forum members as far as I remember, it was more of a FAO:TWFirst... Possibly, anyway it manifested itself into this huge phenomona in the non-av forum and everybody would take turns in starting new ones, and obviously post count was the most important factor in TWFirst volumes... Along with the post 69, 169, 269 and so on... (Lindy Big grin).

etc.

The innuendo threads started when a post I made to McRingRing (remember him?!) was deleted in an oh-so-common Israel vs. Palestine thread. The reason was "Innuendo and jokes don't belong in a political thread". This annoyed me and the first innuendo thread started with a rant about how ridiculous it was that pointless circular discussions took precedent over humour that at least would make SOME people laugh.

So the innuendo threads were born - with me, KROC, McRingRing, DLX and others claiming to have the biggest love stick. Oh, and taking the piss out of [email protected]LHR. For the record:

For the record 777236(not so)ER. The best ever comparisson you did was a little cesna with a busted prop engine titled McRingRing (damn, I gotta email him), and then a 777 Engine for you. You get your props for that.

Go4EVA, they begun when user TWfirst posted a thread "TWfirst". In that thread he explained that due to some reasons other people aquired password for his username (TWfirst) and thus he won't use it anymore. He posted that thread using his other username. The thread, however, quickly turned into off-topic spree after some posts. Later a thread was locked after it reached a certain number of replies. However, than somebody posted "TWfirst vol. 2" thread where the same was going on. It was called "forum in forum", people there spoke about various things. As other people said, this got boring after a while and these threads stopped. Later there were attempts to resurect TWfirst threads under "TWfirst NG" threads.

Not even close.

The original thread began when another user named Dan posted a thread intended as a message to me (thread title: "TWFirst...") telling me that he had gotten temporarily banned for using inappropriate language while defending gay people against one of the resident bible beaters of the time. He and I had both been contributing to the thread in which the argument took place, but while I was offline, the argument got heated, the thread was deleted, and he was banned. So he started the TWFirst thread after rejoining the site under a different name to let me know what had happened. That started a conversation between us, and then other people joined in, and it continued forever.

...and THAT is the origin of the TWFirst threads.

Peace.

Well why don't we try to ressurect some the past light-hearted traditions. We need a break from religion, politics, and rabbits. At least we seem to have somewhat of a start here.

The in picture of Go4EVA's "Love Boat" a few posts above it appears that it is having a bit of a dark discharge from the business end, a quick trip to the doc' might be in order.

Yes, many pretty pictures there.....

Back to the actual thread, yes those certainly were the days. The TWFirst thread with KROC, TWFirst, CstarU, Lindy, EGGD, Joona, GKirk, myself, to name a few. That was the prime of my time with the discussions forums. I don't know which is worst, the fact that those days are over, or the fact that these threads containing absolute rubbish was the prime of my time in the forums...  Smile

Shame that it disappeared after a while, but those were 10 (+) great threads. A brilliant way to pass the time, that's for sure.

Someone find out when the threads started so we can arrange a reunion at the appropriate time. KROC, you bring the cake and party hats.

My first and last clone, Bill Gates, was removed after less than 24 hours. What a shame. I spent a lot of time on his profile, (I even got hold of a pic...) but all that is in the past now.  Smile
