    Happy Belated Birthday to Redszone

    I don't believe it was mentioned, but this site turned seven years old this past week. It's amazing how far we've come. Thanks again to Boss and GIK!


    I do miss the days of the mass Shakira photo postings though.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    You know, we've had some people join here as 15-year-olds who are now adults. Another interesting to thing to contemplate is that several people here, myself included, have "talked" to one another almost every day for seven years!

    I vividly remember a remark I made to paintmered when he was in high school - now we work in the same building.

    (BTW, the remark was he should change his name to paintmepinstripe.)
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.

    I don't remember that remark at all.

    But yes, I joined this site as a 16-year old, high school junior back in early 2001 (I think my join date is off by a few months due to a server hiccup back in aught-two). You can do the math from there.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    I don't even remember how I stumbled upon this place, but I'm certainly glad that I did.

    I'll second that. To think what the Reds message board world was like before Redszone....wow.

    Thanks Boss and GIK for your the continuous improvement this site has seen

    If only the Reds followed the same model...cause they've been treading water for 7 years.

    Man, I actually do remember the old cincinnati.com message boards. I didn't join this site right away but I read it pretty much from the start. I joined in May 2001 when I was a sophomore in high school. Time sure flies.

    Happy Birthday! I just stumbled upon this site also back in 2003. I was just looking for good conversation about the Reds and looked up on a search engine for just such a site. This was one of the first one's that came up and it was a gem!
