Err so you want it taken down but have quoted it here. Ok Rolling Eyes

I saw it a few years back, thought it was amusing to see someone go to so much bother to have a pop at us. Think it says more about them.

so its not all bad Wink

That’s not the only definition though Shocked

I joined in 2001, but shows as registered before 2003.

Has your username always been the same? I did try to map up the ones I could but if you let me know, I’ll set your proper date.

I also originally registered at the start of the forum in 2001, under the name 'RW', but when everyone had to re-register, in early January 2003 I think, I was without a computer for a few weeks so wasn't able to register again until the 25th of that month.

Yes, a 2001 club member here too. I seem to recall I registered on Day 2 of the forum's existence due to being on a school trip to Belgium. I was gutted I couldn't register on the first day. That said, I was also gutted that I missed most of the joint BBC News coverage in the wake of the BBC bomb. That had happened the weekend before I went on the school trip, so I saw the immediate aftermath and joined up coverage from BBC World (very much a rarity in those days) but sadly not the first couple of weekdays. By the time I got home, they'd gone back to normal.

I'll second Neil's cheeky request. Would be great to have a "founding member" badge or something Very Happy

Good idea or bad? Current header vs the "Obit Header" which would last a few days (of course, this needs thinking through practically too, like where to put the header tabs, but it's just a quick and dirty idea)

I would personally argue that that could be useful in the event that it comes to the forum's attention that a long-standing and prolific member has died - i.e. forum members who have been here longer than you've been alive.

However unless Mr Sissons has been a regular contributor to TV Forum, something like what you've posted just because a well known TV personality has died seems OTT in all honesty.
