The "Today's Events" at the bottom of the page let me know AN was founded 17 years ago today. It's...been a minute this community has been around. Kind of wild to think it's almost old enough to vote.

Seen a man standin' over a dead dog lyin' by the highway in a ditch
He's lookin' down kinda puzzled pokin' that dog with a stick

I'm very thankful AN is still around. Thanks to all of you who have kept it running. Here's to another 17 years!

I didn't realize I signed up on day one. I knew I was in early, but that was a surprise. Hard to believe it's been 17 years. Man, time is just on a rocket sled...

Yeah, we've been at this for a little while, haven't we?

Thanks for sticking around, people!

Crazy, time flies when you're having fun. Or something like that.

I didn't come around until 7 months later, but glad I did.

I've been checking this site pretty much daily for the last 16 years. Crazy to think about that.

I've had moments where I've stepped away for a bit, but I've been checking/looking/lurking since August 2004, and was considering for a couple months before that. A lot of our peeps have stopped reporting in, but there are tons that lurk wihtout posting, so at least we know the crazy uncles are still about.

Welp, it was an interesting experiment, but I guess it's time to shut it all down!

Wow. Crazy to think AN has been around that long. I signed up in the first year, so I've been around here just over 16 years. A lot has happened in that time frame.

Die young and save yourself....

It is amazing how long we've been here. I mean, I'm a late bloomer and only joined after almost a year from it's start thanks to the link from Think Secret. I remember there was a thread were you posted an image with your member number in it.

I'm pretty sure we have an automatic 24-hour ban policy for IBL posts.
