The Old Beeb Posters!

mollismollis Posts: 151

Now then... I posted on the old Beeb board for years, I recognise some names on this board, but like me I think many have come back in another guise.

Now I don't want anyone to 'out' themselves if they don't want to, just a yes or a no would be good... Just curious. x

    Just a no from me then.

    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    No from me too, been here 3 or 4 years.

    Okay Verdon, sentiments taken onboard... End of... We had a good community on the Beeb board before it was closed down... I was just interested... But will just shut up and go into oblivion.

    mollis - you could never go into oblivion (see, I have a bit of inside knowledge here!!!).  But I took the decision to change my persona on here, and I think one or two others did as well.  Not to "hide" but rather to put all the old beeb stuff behind us, and have a fresh start.  Thus far it seems to be working (tho' I hesitate to mention the G**d name just in case ...)

    Occasionally I recognise a style of posting or a hint of a previous "life" but overall I reckon the anonymity is what keeps us going.  Rather like the occasional dianthus. Or Rhodo.  Or . . .  well, you get the gist!

    Seems I was wrong in my assumption that many of the posters migrated from the old Beeb board.. I thought I recognised  some, but obviously wrong....

    Mods please delete the thread as I really don't want to cause any problems to a lovely board.

    Verdun - what an unsympathetic reply.  Mollis is probably just wanting to say hello to old friends.  Why seek an ulterior or sinister motive?

    I think there are still some people here from the old Beeb board.

    I was on the old Beeb Board, but I've forgotten what my name was!

    There you go, Mollis - even if people can't remember who they are/were, there's not a problem in referring back to the old Beeb stuff.  After all, some of it was very, very amusing.  Christmas fairies on an upside-down Christmas tree springs to mind!image
