PostPosted: Aug 08, 2016 09:18    Post subject: 10th anniversary of FMF!  

Yesterday Sunday August 7 was the 10th anniversary of the creation of this Forum.

One of the things I've discovered over the last ten years is that I should not participate too much ;-) I guess this Forum has to be something dynamic, and if someone (me or anyone else) participates too much there is a risk of "breaking the engine" ;-) ;-)

And now that you know this, FMFers, what are we giving away for our anniversary? We all hope it will be mutually contributions !! ;-) ;-) ;-)

Happy Anniversary FMF. Since the traditional 10th anniversary gift is tin, I offer this cassiterite.

10 YEARS!!! Really cool, congratulations! I joined FMF in April 2009 and thus I could witness the majority of these decade :) My gift for our anniversary? The most stupid mineral-related jokes I've ever seen:

Hi Jordi, on this 10th birthday of FMF, a great thank you to you, the moderators and all the contributors. I am a bit slow, what do you mean by this?

Thanks to all the moderators, the admins and the chief webmasters who had to cope with Jordi's endless energy for so long.
This forum has been inspirational to many of us.

Congratulations Jordi and your devoted crew, for the hard work and long hours you have dedicated to the Forum :-)

Pierre, I think what Jordi is saying (to everybody) is that he would like it if more forum users contributed more new articles, so that there is less pressure on him. Also we would all then be happy because there will be more to read, talk about, and absorb :-)

Me: Note to self - write something for the Forum.
Mañana, meyhap.

Here you have my contribution

These images correspond to the first thread and posts published on FMF. The number of the thread and of the first post is "7" and the date is September 3, as the first 6 posts published between August 7 and September 3 were tests / attempts that were later erased.

As you can see there was no presentation or explanation, I just opened the Forum and, as you can see, the thread was published trying, from the beginning, not to be a regular forum with a lot of banal "blah blah blah" but having some mineralogical content. The first response was from fjtaguas (who I did not know at that time) and arrived on September 14th, 11 days after the publication of my first post, and until now...

PS: please note some very famous names already feature in this very first thread ;-)
