So here’s how I’d planned for things to go down. A few days from now, I was going to send out e-mail messages to about 15 members I’d managed to track down and tell them about this site. In my wildest dreams, I thought that maybe five or six of those people would’ve actually been interested enough to take a look at the site. I also hoped that a couple of those people would tell some of their old message board friends about the site.
Fortunately, things don’t always go according to plan.
Last night, news about the site leaked out on Facebook, and word travelled fast. We’ve already had more people visit the site than I would’ve ever imagined… people I could’ve never tracked down and people that I thought wouldn’t cared about a 7-year-old message board. I’m overwhelmed by the response! And I’m glad to see that I’m not the only one who’s missed the FMB!
So… to all of you… Welcome! And if you keep in contact with any members of the old gang, please let them know about this site.
UPDATE #2: Apparently OAR fans like us, too!
