Tomorrow, U.S. time, will mark my seventh year since joining the foray on ATS. When I joined, I didn't really think that I was going to stay here long. Yet alone stay on here for seven long and drawn out years. This site has changed a lot over the past six years and thirty days. When I joined, there were only a few hundred members that were on here. Now it has grown to over several thousands and its still growing. The features like the ATS videos, Media Center, the news shows, or ATS Live hadn't even been thought of yet. It just shows how much change has went on over the years. I've been around here for this long period of time. I just wonder what the next year will bring about on ATS. I mean I've seen just about everything there is to see on here and there are probably somethings that I have missed and greater things to come.

I have loved every minute that I have experienced and every experience I have had here on ATS. I admit that I don't post as much as I could need be. No matter how many posts I make or I do not make. I have had a great time in these past seven years. This site has got to have been the most fun, entertaining, and craziest site that I have ever been on. It just goes to show how much time you can spend on just one website. Sometimes I feel like that it was just yesterday that I became a member here. ATS has become, at least, for me a site that no matter how many times you take a break from it. Like a boxer in a heavyweight title fight. You always keeping come back for more no matter how many times you say, "I'll be back in a few months." Yet you come back the next week and you still love it.

My lord how seven years just flies by when you are having fun.
Here's to another seven more fantastic years to come!!!!

I realized that I was getting old about ten years ago in the real world TK.
I would not really say that it is a drawback that I did meet this TortoiseKweek guy. I'd say its more of a plus than anything!!

7 years is a long time, but i bet them years flew by like nothing.

If i could ask 1 question, it would be, what is the most important thing you've learnt in your time here on ATS?

What a post my friend, I am glad to see that so many members here on ATS actually care about ATS in general. I've been here for a little less than a year and it has been a great time getting to know a lot of new people who share very similar thoughts as me and even members who disagree with what I believe. It is a very diverse community which I am very grateful for, and it is important in that I get to view many topics from different angles. Cheers to you and I wish you a happy holidays!

Good to see you chose your words carefully..... cause I hear old bones break very easily, and we wouldn't want you to have an accident.
LMAO!


Don't worry gimme, I'm joining the club pretty damn quick myself these days. Maybe when we pass our 20yr ATS birthday we'll get matching rocking chairs and share a few beers.

Thanks bud!! It has been one great time on here and I have loved every minute of the madness. The diversity is what makes this site as good as it is. You'll find people that will agree or disagree with you. Hell, I've found people on here that a common interest in rail photography on here.

The most important thing I've learned since I've been here....... I have learned that having fun on here helps get around the sanity of some threads.

Ive been looking around for other significant things that happened on 25th dec 2004 and apart from a snow storm I can't find a single one. You joining ATS might well be the most significant thing that happened on that day


Can you remember what the first thread you made on ats was about?

It was actually my intro thread Dave. I didn't really start posting until sometime in August of 2005. Between those two dates, I mostly lurked around getting a feel for everything when I would get the chance. I forget what my non-intro thread was about.

Thanks man.
It's like the song "Crazy Nights" that KISS did back in the 1980s. Only difference is that this place can be a crazy site sometimes.

Hi Gimme!

Can I get an invite to your ATS birthday party? I see chips and drinks are covered, but I could bring dessert.

I can imagine the ATS stories you could tell at that shin dig, huh?

Have a great ATS anniversary, and a wonderful holiday.
