    Steve Hoffman Your host Your Host Thread Starter

    Our SH Forums maven Rudy has just reminded me that the Forum founder Holy Zoo posted the "Welcome To The New Steve Hoffman Music Forums!" thread back on January 12, 2002. We have older threads, but those are old, archived content from the ancient DCC Compact Classic forum.

    So this coming Thursday, January 12th will be the 15th anniversary of the forum!! We have some landmarks we've made over the past few months too--15 million posts, half a million threads, 60,000+ members. I guess we're on a roll, eh?

    Thanks to Rudy and the moderating staff and to all of you for making this happen, banner ad free and still growing after all of these years.


    The first thread, back in 2002:

    Welcome! ยป

    I remember Jeff (Holy Zoo) had to talk me into doing the forum, I didn't think anyone would even show up or care. Guess I was wrong..

    Wow... I guess I'm a relative newcomer. I usually stop in on a daily basis. Lots of nice folks, too. Thanks to our host, mods, technical folks, and everyone else that keeps the site running.

    Thank you Steve and to the gorts for making this a great place to hang out. I joined in January 2003. I don't know how I found SHF but glad I did!

    Note "stereo "on the label. My taste is not so bad I guess although I do occasionally partake in MONO.
    BTW I got married in 2002 and divorced in 2014. Glad that some things can last...

    As I mentioned in a thread recently, I have learned more stuff and gotten more great advice and opinions in Off Topic than I have in Music Corner. Lots and lots of really smart people here. Thanks Steve.
