Today I was surfing around old threads and started reading a thread I had a while back called My Morning Coffee, Come Share a cup.
For those who never saw or visited the thread allow me to link to it just for reference
My Morning Coffee, Come share a cup
It is closed now due to it's size and people getting carried away in it.
We were all just having fun, but sometimes it is easy to stray away from T&Cs when you are jacked up on coffee (or sometimes beer etc)
I allowed any beverage as the point was to make friends,
talk about anything that caught someones attention or they wanted to share,
and just have a place to post when the rest of ATS was slow but you still wanted to talk to someone or share a photo not really relevant to anything
else. There was a lot of fun and good times in that thread shared by all.....
An ATS thread without arguments and disagreements?!
Is that possible??!
Yeah, it was.
As time went on, the thread grew bigger and bigger. More people stopping in to say good morning,
more friends being made by all who visited.
It was something out of the norm for ATS for the most part.
For me, it was something I looked forward to every morning,
and I miss it.
Every once and a while I will revisit the thread and reread some of the comments, look at the pictures, smile, even laugh again as it is immortalized
forever in a suspended state after it almost reached 10,000 comments and 400 pages in months.
When it was closed, I told the moderators I would not start a new coffee thread as I understood that it was starting to break T&Cs here and there and
although no one is really at fault for it, I did not want to cause more for the mods to moderate as I cannot be responsible for peoples coffee fueled
comments and sometimes borderline inappropriate behavior.
But I miss the thread, and I miss the fun that was had there.
I have tried other threads, but none have been on the level of my coffee thread.
I was at home, my own little coffee den in ATS.
I miss the lighthearted conversations,
The ATS Air Band,
Many of you are getting to serious.....
Don't make me bring out another monster thread of lightheartedness to counteract your serious natures.....
