Re: 10th Anniversary Celebration

I remember the celebration we had a few years ago when Moonies sent in their own shows. I know I had great fun putting that together and also remember the fact that Jamforte and I were logged in and Faffing for 36 hours straight. It was a wonderful day.

Maybe we could do something similar this time around.

Maybe upload some Alvin Lee and 10 Years After?

While I find a celebration based on the rollover to the next significant digit in an arbitrarily based number system absurd (call me when we do the 10(16) anniversary ), let's try to have some real fun with this. The last big celebration was fun. I hope we can come up with something to top it.

Re: 10th Anniversary Celebration

I did a show under one of the last (rare) brain waves here on AM but it came to nothing - I don't know why as I spent a bit of time doing the damn thing. Vax has the CD I did - burn it. I would do another with more up to date music with some more Mortis madness............I presume a 24 hour faff would be in order as long as it's on a Saturday

Re: 10th Anniversary Celebration

For the Anniversary reinstate the Rogues Gallery (since we now have so many more rogues) and bring back the chatroom!

Of course...I suspect these two requests are probably not do-able, so I don't hold out much hope.

Would be wonderful though.

I have really missed both.

I will look for a suitable image module for a Rogues Gallery. As for chat, it exists. I had disabled it due to it being exploited. There are some updates for this at just need to be applied. Fortunately, the anniversary is months away. Plenty of time to get this all instated.

Re: 10th Anniversary Celebration

Thanks Vax. That's GREAT.

I really was bracing myself for your response saying it wasn't possible, so I'm completely chuffed.

Re: 10th Anniversary Celebration

I think that I am very glad because I read this joyous thread.

I will congratulate aural moon by my method. Perhaps, the listener and moonies are to enjoy it in the library. Please wait only a little.

P.S.

To Sintetista
Did you read this thread?
Can your band offer the tune for aural moon?
I thought it to be one of the congratulation.

I've actually installed a Gallery module and I have three photos in it for testing. I'm going to start working on how and where to integrate it into the web site.

People reading this thread should start now to find a photo they'd want in the gallery.

Re: 10th Anniversary Celebration

All of the above sounds great to me. I really love the idea of fellow moonies putiing on a show - maybe a time limit may be a good idea. What about a connection game with the music. String a few tracks together and we can try and guess the connection. We need a time and date so we can book the time to be online and organise plus advertise the party.

Well, I did the same when the idea came up..
But here a new idea:
A 24 hours show in which every moonie has the possibility to dedicate (with promo) via rcorded voice one or several songs to the moon. Each selected tune has to have it's own dedication.

In this way we will have a real "Moonie" show with many active participants.

Vax has my latest photo which nearly made him lose his hair as well. He can use that as it's now in my passport.........
