Some of those are pretty funny. Love the one telling us to close up and yet we a still here. Shows how wrong he really was.

I'll look through the SD for some but major ones we need are the Designers Board and Rich's first Reviewers Board.

Edit: One of the most important SD ones: http://aoe.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/aoecgi/display.cgi?action=ct&f=4,5400,,all

Edit 2: Another good one: http://aoe.heavengames.com/cgi-bin/aoecgi/display.cgi?action=ct&f=4,5241,100,all

I remember having a few good laughs there. Those where the days.

You may no need a special forum - the CB sites have a few threads with links to the top threads on some subjects. Make a few categories so people can find stuff easier. I'll hunt down some AoE Manor related stuff - that's important for the site's later history.

Nope. All designers posted their finds as articles - or in scenarios/campaigns. AFAIK Imhotep didn't write any articles or he didn't submit them. You can look for threads started by Imhotep by entering "i m h o t e p" in the author search box at the bottom of the Scenario design forum page, but what you'll find there isn't going to make you happy.

Been thinking this Hall of fame over... Instead of a new forum, could we just not have a stick in each forum, with the best of that forum linked? I would agree that the MP forum needs to get all the old ones though from the aoe/ror forum.

I initially thought about having HoF links in each forum but I don't think it would have the best overall effect.

I think we need a dedicated forum where someone could click on "Hall of Fame" and basically cover the history of this site. There are so many threads that are found in VVV, AoE/RoR, and Scenario Design that I think ought to be linked together to tell the best/complete story.

It will be kind of messy to just pile them all together, unless you are going for just the most entretaining ones? Maybe could have some sections to it? It is a great idea to present these, as I even have not read them. Your idea might save time, though also not be best way to access these precious posts. I would like to see a bit of classification of these. Maybe they have an icon near the links telling which forum it comes from? Though some of the ones from the aoe forum really should be in the MP one

Right, I've done that lot - I don't want to add any new ones until Blitz has had a say - after all, this is his idea I'll put them in order once we have them all (or, all for now!).

The only problem I see with another forum is that it'd have to be non-posting, I think - to keep it in chronological order, etc.

This page is for people who have had to change internet plans to unlimited, change providers with those who offer the best connection. For those of us who have to hide our faces behind a box of Cap'n Crunch in the grocery store to avoid being recognized by the angry wife of that 'Newbie' your husband just hooked and reeled in. To those who get up at 4:30 in the morning and find the other side of the bed empty then groan as the faint noises of battle finally register in our sleepy brain. For we who watch our partners looking at life through newly acquired, dark circled, baggy, bloody red eyes, while their slack-jawed children point in unconcealable amazement, "Is that Daddy?!"
