    If the stats are anything to go by, this thread should hit the 6000 mark.

    It's 854 days since we hit back at the killer who destroyed our 19-year history

    Does that mean this thread is going to be exciting and could I have started something? Will someone make a 7000th thread when the time comes?

    I hope we find that killer and bring them to justice. :bang:

    Having said that, it's great to see how this community has regenerated. :site:

    I blame Brexit. (I know the forum crash happened before the referendum but I just want to blame Brexit for all evil in the world).

    Like Dr Who, some regenerations are better than others but it always endures.

    It happened after the vote which was in June 2016 and the date would have been my parents wedding anniversary, that's how I know - 23rd

    The forum crashed Mon 12th Sept as I was on holiday in Portugal, trying to post a pic of Howard Keel and couldn't!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I will never truly really understand how it disappeared off the face of this planet and isn't available in at least some shape or form and felt so sad that I wasted 16 years of my life posting for nothing. Hey ho!! Onwards and upwards!! :bh:

    This is a screenshot I have, though I can't tell how long before the crash it was. I think it was the same year and up to that point we had over 100,000 threads with two and a half million posts.

    I think that screen cap is most likely not from 2016 since I think the Larry condolence board had disappeared by then. So my guess is it's from around 2013. But yeah the board was much more busy back then and we had over 10 000 + members when it crashed.

    But at least our board is still here and considering where we were in september 2016 it's amazing how far we've come. It shows that there's still some life in this fan community. I mean over 1000 people chose to come back. :)

    It's not for nothing. The old posts may be gone but the friendships we made from this board remains. :pals:

    Well, that screenshot verified that I was never a member of the old forum. I remember belonging to a forum that discussed prime time soaps (and DYNASTY) but that was affiliated with SoapNet.

    Actually, there was a mini-crash before the big one - we lost approx a month of discussions.

    Yes, I'm now thinking it goes back further. I remember there was a time when we had EMPIRE up at the top. I also remember moving Larry's condolence forum into a sub-forum.

    • Up at the top of the forum, there is talk about the wealth of the Ewing family, while bubbling under, the debate continues on whether Krystle should have had a ‘Near Death’ Experience.

    • Rumour has it that Chao-Li should have been given a bigger role while servicing Angela while many members are trying to understand NuDynasty.

    • Later, our panel will be asking which actors deserve a better career and question what makes the haunted house movies so attractive.

    • The contest goes on between Laura Branigan and Pat Benatar.

    • There's a last ditch at who will win the SoapLand Battle of the Tearjerkers before the weekend is out.

    No, I don't think we will :D considering we are just at 2,250 posts and are already lagging behind the total of 6000 threads.

    I am just pleased that SC has reached such an impressive amount of threads (I hadn't noticed until you pointed it out Ome) and also that we are all still here posting on the best forum on the internet. :hats:

    i find it a bit funny that another site i belong to crashed Summer i think it was? or was it Spring? i forget anymore of (2014) than afterwords this one crashed. both of them as far as i know well when it comes to the other site they had no backups actually. it was one of those they thought they had it and felt like idiots that when they went to go look and were shocked when they didn't. so when they were recreating the site and updating it with Xenforo they made damn sure they did a backup this time around.

    i'm not sure if this one had one i can't remember, but how long ago was 854 days? i never can remember years wise how long ago that was to be honest.

    also i wonder how many the old site even had after being around for so long?

    Actually, the "breaking news" that shocked me the most was reading....
    My mind being in the gutter, this line made me react pretty much like Linda Dano is reacting in my avatar.
