Happy 5th Birthday to Classic Cougar Community .Com!

Has it been 5 years already? WOW!

Happy 5th Birthday to Classic Cougar Community Forums!

It seems like it was just yesterday, but December 23rd 2010 the forums officially kicked off in their current form.

I hope you guys are having as much fun as I am hanging out here, kicking virtual tires and telling stories. This is still so much cheaper than professional therapy!

Thanks to the many great folks that have shared your stories and experience and knowledge, and made this a fun place to hang out! Imagine how many electrons we have aggravated!

Thanks to the many members that have made very much appreciated contributions to keep the lights on.

Thanks to Jay for keeping the bad guys out and the million other things he does to keep this thing up and going.

Bill thanks for all that you do for the Classic Cougar Community and this site. I migrated over here from MC.net after Logan sold that site. While the doors have stayed open over there so to speak the Classic Cougar Community that you and the other members have built here just seems better, at least to me. So again, thanks to you and everyone that is involved making this site what is is.

I am actually surprised that MC.Net has survived as well as it has and I am glad to see it. Lots of good information on that site. Every forum is only as good as the members and we have the best.

This is a great site. I've certainly benefited greatly from the expertise here, and enjoy reading about what's going on in the world of Cougars. I hadn't logged in to MC.net in a long time, so I just did and it worked. I just don't have time to keep up with two message boards though, so I'm going to just stick with checking in here.

These milestones are important to recognize. I've only been a member for about half it's life thus far. I don't plan on going anywhere and very much value all aspects of this site.

Great job Bill and all others involved in its functioning. :beerchug:
