    ...I signed up to this, my first, forum...

    I've seen a lot of folk come and go, I've seen the forum evolve a few different times, I've seen some monumental threads both good and bad, I've spat my own dummy out on a few occasions too...

    But, even when I don't own a Mercedes, I always come back because at its centre this is a very good forum and on the whole the vast majority make it a great place to 'shoot the breeze' as our American cousins would say.

    (And I still never know whether to 'like' or 'thank' a post!)

    I'm in my tenth year I think.

    The forum has changed a lot, it was pretty snobby when I first joined and it seems to have evolved (what is the opposite to evolved? Devolved?) a lot since then.

    There certainly have been some epic threads and some spectacular bannings over the years, it's interesting to see some old faces suddenly start posting again, I wonder what they make of the changes?

    Either way it's the only forum that I am a member of and I must log in most days to see what is going on.
