Why don't we …...
Have an anniversary party on irc?
we have ways to get a hold of the players, dms , and others who have played here on CoA since its inception.
the server is ten years old plus so we should have a get together from beginning to present.
Feb 2003 was the date of the first person joining this forum, so i am guessing the server has been around even slightly before then
so is this the 10th or 11th year? i think v3/4 lasted almost ten years, not counting time from before then.
But that said, it does sound like a good idea, presuming people are willing to participate.
you joined very near the start as well, joining the forum in Sept 2003
yes v1 was brief it had just wiped a month before I joined I think being the major bug testing almost like a live beta for a pw, then we updated as each expansion came out
I think we were up and running by Christmas 2002?
There were definitely different forums before the move to this one
Might be fun to see where everyone went to

In a middle of a crowded city. :P
wow… joined june 2004 and it was, I think, the start of v3.
ten years! omg...
a get together would be epic but really complicated to organize considering we are all over the time zones.
a get together in irc is always possible though
I joined as my profile says in late Nov 2003, that was at the very tail end of V2, so i got to play in v2 briefly, and ..wow….did i make some serious mistakes, so embarrassing, i did not want to put them in that now locked thread referring to embarrassment
and for the record Olouth was around then as well, he regardless of what character he played always was a mover and a shaker on the server, if he is not able to get on for what ever reason, that is really the servers loss, and i do hope he does and has shown up.
would be nice to see him and others..so many others in IRC or even back in the game, but time zones will be a limiting factor as far as meeting up with everyone

My timeline is off I think- can someone help me?:
Game came out in June of 2002
CoA launched around October-December of 2002?
v2 came out Early 2003 or really late 2002?
Moved boards March 2003*
March 2003 Start of v3?
March 2004 Start of v4?
That can't be right.
I have a hard time imagining that by the time the v2 House system launched (March 2003 date?) that we had 10K messages on the defunct boards and new boards were up, Anna and Darvel already had their house, Arabel had already added 4 new city areas, subdual scripts were in and the entire Ashby quest cycle was running ….....and that was after maybe 3 months of coming from a server that had one city area and couple of sewers in v1?
I'm not sure if you could track down Anna, Darvel, Vshar, Rocc, Draco, Wolf, Illandria, Decca, Rondar, Elrath and the likes of them but they were some of the earliest memorable people from back at the start that I remember.
Fal and Cunning Stunt's username's I recognize from when I started but I don't remember who they played back then. I never really kept in touch with anyone outside the game.

I played in v3, and I joined in 2008, according the forum registration.
i think V3 started a couple weeks before i posted my first post with Rav in the Diary section, I think it is possible some people posted in the diary section right on the first day of v3, if someone knew characters who started then and looked at the persons first post they might come up with the actual date (unless someone noted it somewhere, a DM perhaps?)
ettore was at lvl 19/20 in v2 and I was playing v2 with drago hille while tink an taliya were running about.played with darrien /elrath and haljordan/ guardin gnome/ alonsis nikko ran from meiun and Vshar
Don't quote me on this but I think v3 started on Feb 25 of 2003 or 4 but I do know it was the day of my cousin's birthday.
