Happy Birthday SWFUK!

Post by edd_jedi »

The forum is 15 years old! I can't remember the exact day, but it was some time around Christmas 2005 that I first set it up. Those of you there from the start will remember I lost it all in 2006 trying to move servers so had to start again, which is why there are no posts from 2005 here.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support, here's to another 15 years! Here's a few of the forums old designs to reminisce over:

Many happy returns to the forum and all those involved! To quote every aunt of mine whenever they saw me as a child... haven't you grown! :-D

Thanks Edd for creating and maintaining this wonderful oasis for vintage Star Wars collectors. It really is a safe refuge in the ever increasing madness of the internet and social media today. I visit every day, and there's usually something of interest to read and or contribute to somewhere within its multitude of fantastic and fascinating threads.

Here's to the next 15 years!

Happy 15th birthday 8)
I joined 29th Dec 2012 so I was late to the party but enjoying my own SWFUK 8 year celebration tomorrow.

As others have said cheers for providing the best SW collecting community experience on the net.
