How old are you?

I've been reading these forums a bit lately, and I've noticed plentiful references to work, and to kids, and to passing bar exams (Congrats!)... It suddenly struck me... How old is everyone? For what it's worth, I'm 15...
Thus started the longest thread in the history of the City Building forums. From a simple request for people to tell their ages it grew into the City Building Census.

That thread was closed when it reached 2500 replies, the maximum allowed by these forums. This is a continuation of that thread.

I can picture this thread growing as big as the old one.

Would probably take another five years.

Phew, it sure was a long thread. I wonder if Imhotep knows that his thread has become a CB census.

The Members Table has been updated to include all birthdays through June 30, 2005.

It could well be the longest thread in all of HG, no?

Somewhere there's archieved a thread with 10,000+ posts in it but I can't remember the name of it.

Some OD party. My old PC hanged when I tried to load the page. Serious.

Btw, are the thread pageview numbers only available to the moderators?

posted 07-02-05 17:38 ET (US)     10 / 306  
I'm not sure, but the longest thread in all of HG would probably be the "Splash splash" thread at AOK. I don't know if the party thread at OD was longer, but that one's not available anymore.

Looks like it

The party thread still holds the record for the longest I though. However, this one (or rather it's predecessor) probably holds the record for longest active thread.

Congrats Vaia and thanks for keeping it updated.

Just curious, but why do the threads have a post limit?

Oh, and Vaia, my name got a shave, if you could change it in the table, thanks.

Experience has shown that posts with over 2500 replies have a tendency to become corrupted. The limit was established to avoid this.

I only saw it now, it is a great honor to be the last member to be added to the Table before the restarting of the Tread.

Seems like a reasonable request to me. Your name has been added to our Members Table (in bold letters).


I got you relocated Alex_pharaoh.

WOW! I was just re-reading the City Builder's Census (the original one) and noticed that off all the people here, the ones of us who have been there the longest are:

1997
Angel Sunshine
Angel Draco

1998
Mouse
MRed94
Legion
Jack Noir
Angel Zen
Angel Jayhawk

I had NO idea that I had been on here for almost 7 YEARS!

Jeeze, time goes so quickly. Must be my doddering age, huh?

Just think, 7 years of joy, sorrow, triumphs and failures, and all of the love that being part of this wonderful group entails!

Thanks for all of the wonderful memories, and all the hugs and laughter that we have shared.

P.S. I just asked Rocky to change the date of my birth to the correct one of June 25, and he was very kind in doing that for me. I would appreciate the change on the member table as well..............Thanks.

IT WASN’T MY FAULT!

After about 700 replies in the original thread (and about 160 names in the Table), I decided that it would be nice to add birthdays to the list. I went back through all of the old replies in several threads to see which birthdays I could find. In the first Table with birthdays that I posted, I had your birthday listed as June 25, 1959.

A few replies later (Reply #720) Jayhawk posted :

Quoted from Jayhawk:

Checks ICQ list

Bradius - 06/08/1961
Chunky - 11/25/1982 (did he show up here?)
Darth - 12/19/1984
Draco - 07/08/1975
Jaguar - 12/12/1973
James Blond - 05/11/1975
Moquel - 05/08/1984
MRed - 06/26/1959
Reckless - 08/25/1979
SenetEr - 01/16/1965
Springer - 12/28/1970
Xaphire - 09/17/1975

There you go

I checked Jayhawk’s list against mine and noticed that your birthday was different. I ASSUMED that Jayhawk was correct and that I had made a mistake (should have known better) so I changed the date.

Blame it on Jayhawk!

It was certainly a shock to come here and find that the first census had closed. It is certainly a shame to see the forums so inactive as well. Mine is the first post of today.

It's a week-end, the forums are usually much more quiet. The movie quiz has been a great success
posted 07-25-05 18:08 ET (US)     24 / 306  
I DO blame Jayhawk! Isn't he the source of MOST of the trouble around here????????????

And to think I almost gave him his own personal cloud! Hope Reck is doing ok with his..............

By the way, folks, new batch of Wing conditioner on the way with my fondest regards.............

Wow, the Heavens are 8 years old and still active. That's an astonishly long time for something to survive on the internet. I guess this place is pretty meaningful after all.
