[Archive] CDO 5 years old already!?!?


Technically I think it was early February 2007, so we’re a bit off. :~

But 5 years… Damn, that is a long time.  It really doesn’t seem that long ago though?

Here’s to another 5 years! :cheers :cheers :cheers :cheers :cheers


Happy anniversary CDO :cheers


That’s actually a great achievement. Well done.


It seems like a long time but really quick at the same time.


I will drink a beer (or several!) this evening in celebration.


Strange…as a newcomer here, for some reason I thought it was a lot older than that. Maybe it has something to do with the overall wealth of accumulated knowledge represented herein.


Great achievement CDO! So how many of the originals are left?


Think im an original from the HoH. We should have a special medal :smiley:

Some of us have been on the treadmill for quite a while. For me it started with the Chaos Dwarf egroup back in 2000 or so, which later became the Yahoo message board. There was a problem with spam so everyone made a shift to Hand of Hashut, and when that got too stagnant CDO was created.



congrats to all who have built this from the ground up over the years

lets keep the fires of hashut burning bright for another five years

:hat off

wow, 5 years. I thought cdo was older. Ive been here for at least 3 years now. just checked, I joined in December 12 2008 at 1:48 AM. so 3 years 5 months. Yeah, when I joined I was under the impression that cdo had been running much longer.

Hashut’s Blessing:

I am one of the “oldies” - think I joined HoH around 2000, moved onto The Grand Alliance simultaneously and became mod, then we updated by moving to CDO (where I retained modship) and HoH died away.

I always forget how long CDO’s been about for :smiley:



I’ve been here for three years.


Yeah, you’re right, stick a fork in it, its done. :stuck_out_tongue:



I didn’t realise HoH was running that long.

I think I joined there in about 2004.  Just after the legendary Hat/Mask Flame war, whenever that was (I missed out on all the fun).  Edit.  It was during SoC, whenever that was.

I joined the Grand Alliance as well, on the off chance it would be the new best thing.  Just Duckass, Zharkov and Beaver talking to each other mostly from what I remember.  I never liked the white writing on black there, but they did have awesome CD themed buttons, much nicer than we have here.


I don’t see medals happening for HoH. If anything this forum is a decendant of the Grand Alliance more then any other if for no other reason most of the initial staff at CDO was from Grand Alliance mod team

Obviously there is more to it then that but doesn’t need to be dragged up here.


Congratulations guys! 5 years is quite an achievement, especially with the constant stream of quality posts/threads. Cheers to all of you!


congrats to all of you!


Gratz everyone and indeed it feels like its alot older, when I joined in 2008 it already was a great library of knowledge. I hope this library will stay for many generations to come.
