Thanks for the kind words everyone - it is truly appreciated. Honestly, I am pleased to contribute to such a great site in any way I can. These sites enrich my life and help fuel my passion for my favorite band of all time. Little did I know when I joined Flip City 10 years ago that my life would be forever changed. As Soda said, she started GlennFreyOnline and then decided to create a private message board so that a very small group of fans could chat and share info about our fandom. That was all she ever intended to do - but duty calls. So that small board of 25 members grew a bit - here we are 10 year later as The Border with over 305,000 posts, over 5,000 threads, and almost 2,500 members and still talking about this awesome band. Wow - just Wow!

I thought I'd share a little EOC network collage I made for Soda in honor of the occasion ...

Congratulations on the tenth anniversary of The Border! Thanks to Soda and Dreamer for all the hard work in keeping this forum going over the years. Here's to the next ten years!

I've been here for just over a year so I found it interesting to read about the history and background of the board. I like a lot on here, it's a very friendly place and we have some very interesting discussions. I have not had the chance to meet any other Borderers (partly because there's fewer of us Brits) but hopefully the chance will come in the future.

"And they all came back to say, Congratulations ... "

And I say it as well: Congratulations on 10 years!

Thank you so much, Soda and Dreamer, for providing this great site to talk about one of my very favorite topics: the Eagles.


THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!

Congratulations, Soda and Dreamer, on your long-awaited decade milestone! This board has allowed fans across the globe to congregate, communicate, and celebrate the musical legacy of one of the world's greatest bands. It's been a real pleasure to participate in some of the conversations, and I'm looking forward to the next ten years. "Bravo Zulu," ladies, for a job well done. 😊

Thanks for all the kind words, everyone!

Happy 10th Anniversary to The Border.

I've been a member here since August 2013, the same year HOTE came out. I really don't know how I found this board, but I love coming here everyday.

Congrats to Soda and thanks to all the founding members who've been here from the beginning.
