Happy sixth anniversary everyone!

I wanted to do something a bit different this year, so instead of posting a historical piece I thought it might be interesting to see how we treated the forum anniversary in years gone by :)

1st anniversary (2005)
We attempted to break the site record for most people online at any one time. Unfortunately I cannot remember if we succeeded! :lol:
2nd anniversary (2006)
I organised a game of simulation cricket to celebrate the forum turning 2. It was also around this time that Burian wrote the CMX Uptime program!
3rd anniversary (2007)
Our third anniversary was a trip down memory lane as we recalled some of CricketMX's most famous (and infamous!) moments to date.
4th anniversary (2008)
2008 marked CMX's biggest change, the upgrade to phpBB3 Olympus and the unveiling of the new website.
5th anniversary (2009)
We took another trip down memory lane, including the original chatroom conversation which was probably the catalyst for me creating the site and everyone posting their favorite CMX moments.

I am so proud of this website and I am so grateful to everyone who supports CMX. Thank you! :)

Oh c'mon now a lot of people are impressionable, in fact a good deal of older folks (and trust me i know :wink: ) are easy to manipulate, most of customers we have are older, like 65+

I'm not saying I'm not young or impressionable, or even gullable to an extent, but I will say there is a huge difference from me being 17 and being 23, wisdom is just like wines, it gets better (usually) with age... :wink:
