Thanks for the stroll down memory lane, Davespanners, to those times when I was a mere passerby or lurker. '06 - '09 I pulled completely away from the internet, TV, or any form of media other than local newspaper in those days when I departed the country and wanted nothing to do with anything American media. In 2010 I happened by ATS again and it caught my eye so finally registered as a member then. Looks like I missed out on a lot so glad it's all still there. - A little of my history back at ya'.

There was a sense of authenticity to the site back then. Ahh im just one of those back in the good old days kind of guys I guess.

The interface had certainly improved and looks much more aesthetic, but I think all the serious discussion gets buried under the trolls and pranksters and thread derailers.

The more things change the more they stay the same.

Thanks for the reminder of simpler days when we didnt have as many smurf accounts and people were much nicer to each other.

This should be on the front page. People should never forget where they came from.

...niiiiiiice...awesome OP...

Quite mind boggling to see how this forum has grown and changed over the years.

You did however miss one of THE most important changes ATS ever underwent...the appointing of Staff...

First ever Moderators appointed by Simon *cue suitable Angelic Harp sounds*:

...and of course...

Makes me the only remaining original Mod here on ATS.

Yes...I am indeed so old that I fart dust.
However, any dodgy comments my way re: usage of Viagra, Depends, Metamucil and/or quips about obvious senility shall be responded to forthwith with liberal application of my walking stick...

Great thread, as a noob it is cool to see how this site evolved.
Thanks for posting this, and the link to the wayback machine, been messing around checking out a few of my favorite sites. It's interesting to see how website design has changed in general over the years.
