Well, I switched it over to the Christmas style and our anniversary is official over in most parts of the world, lol, but I've still got a few things left to post - I got distracted by a work project today that took several hours, so I didn't get around to doing some things I wanted to do.

By the way, is anybody going to even attempt the questions that Dreamer posted on the first page? You should give it a shot, guys. You have a 25% chance for each of 'em!

Congratulations!!

Thanks for all your hard work to provide such a friendly place for every eagles fan to get together and discuss dispite the distance. It's real fun to read every thread and participate in discussions. I think it's amazing to know when this site was established I was still in primary school and had no idea about this band at all lol. Though I'm pretty new here, I'm already looking forward to the next 10 years!

Congratulations on reaching this milestone. What an achievement!

When did you switch from being a Glenn Frey message board to an Eagles one?

Sorry about the confusion everyone - I guess I wasn't really clear about any instructions for The Border Challenge. That's because I figured folks would probably just answer them in their head. However, I'll go ahead and wait until tonight before I reveal the answers in case anyone else wants to post their answers here. No matter what, it's just all in fun. I thought it would be a good way to include some board trivia along with a few tips about the board that some folks may not be aware of.

And UTW - Flip City was opened as a private Glenn Frey board. A year later when the board was made public as The Border, it became an Eagles board.

ETA: I was just looking back in the 'All About Us' thread and had my memory refreshed again. The private Flip City Glenn Frey board was actually expanded to an Eagles board prior to going public and being renamed The Border. Thank goodness we have a lot of this stuff documented so we don't have to rely solely on our memory!

Wow! I just came across this photo that I had totally forgotten I even had. When Soda first converted the message board to The Border, she was using a different software. She didn't keep it long because she wasn't happy with its functionality and look, so she quickly converted to to vBulletin software that is still being used today. But here is the original version of The Border that was around for just a short while ...
