You're perfectly capable of creating a sock-puppet specifically for the purpose, just as you did here...  :yup:

How about Casper T Ghost?

I know he sounds like a character from a Marx Brothers film, but where did Caspie come from  >:D

 I've just come from the Facebook page really want to keep our local going what else will I do with Obblie his digging expertise is not wonderful although he is better at weeding but it has rained here for most of the summer and I'm afraid that as well as his other ailments too much gardening would give him a nasty dose of rust. He is safer in our local!

Someone has a very long memory. :)

Caspie T Ghost even had his very own video posted on Karls Forums after a very long running tease.

Or the answer could be Singapore - all depending on the question of course.

Or even 42.
Now what should I put here?? Let me have a think.....

Hi all,

Spurred into life by this scary prospect. Unfortunately life outside the internet has been keeping more than busy enough.

I keep meaning to pop in but never seem to get round to it. Happy to keep in touch through the FB page but not exactly prolific there either  :-[

I am going to find time over the next couple of weeks or so to update the software to SMF 2 & see what happens
we will lose some functionality like tiny portal and Arcade to start with.
I will install portal, but I am not so sure about arcade
We will lose OL theme at first & it will be plain, but I will work on rebuilding it

Lets see if we can rebuild this community up again and get it thriving

Myself, it feels like anybody that's not willing to bite the bullet and do the same is saying that a decade or more of friendship just isn't worth the effort - and that hurts  :'(
