Mazrim and Mark Fletcher are missed. Very funny fellas. Can't remember if they left in a strop or they had better and busier lives than the rest of us.
And maybe time to bring Peter W in from the cold.

Mazrim is going strong on Villa Talk with 2,500 posts (and an excellent community reputation - not sure how that voting works over there?)

It's just 'likes' on posts.

Been a member since 2007, I don't think the look and feel has changed since then?

If it's not broke :)

That's a great point re the layout/look which is great. All the other football forums I've been on are a bit of a mess compared to H&V.

I joined Manila in about 2000 I think. The number of posters was very small, compared to now (dial up etc.).


Ah...the joys of dial-up modems.

Around 2001, BT were still making you log off and log back on again every two hours.

I was normally in the office by 06:30 and was a regular email contributor to an over-night sports talk radio show in LA

Even better when you're a Muppet.

I started buying H and V in 1990. I think my first issue was the end of season review edition. As for online i reckon it would have been about 2005 ish. I think. I couldnt imagine a day without visiting it at  least half a dozen times.

He never did strop off, though. He just stopped posting.

Belated happy birthday/anniversary to the wonderful H & V.

Just reading through this thread has reminded me of another couple of fan sites from the 2000's. Anyone remember the VBB forum which I think was run by Ian "Hammer" or The Collective which was run by Ian Galloway? If I remember correctly, both of them had forums for Villa & blues, while VBB also had a rather underused forum for baggies too.

Jeez, that's made me feel really old now.

I started off on the Collective, which I recall trundled on until about 2006, and was on the VBB for a bit, which I think was after the Collective, but did not really take off. My join date for here is 2005, but I remember the site crashing once, and we all had to re-sign, so I must have been on here a few years earlier.

I was there in the Manila days. Not sure exactly when, though.
Same, 99 for sure, but could have been 98.

I think Maz hopped it to TBAR, but unusually for hoppees, didn't come back to deliver vitriol.

Like his band Cudamantra, which suited his online persona perfectly.
