Five years ago today you came into my life. I never knew if I was cut out for long term posting and even considered abortion but once I looked into your adorable little eyes, I knew I could never be without you again. We've had some bumps along the way (namely potty training) but at the end of every stressful day, I realize I'd have it no other way.

Happy motherfuckin burfday DTF, for you are THE BEST THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :metal :metal :metal

Edit: Seeing as how no one's posted yet, I figured I'd clarify that DTF itself turns 5 years old today and I didn't just make a thread bragging about myself making 5 years in this community (I'll do that next month when I reach 6 years.)

What can I say about a community that accepted me at my most honest, and has seen me through some of the highest and lowest points of my life.  I truly love you guys. :heart


Happy birthday DTF, go get laid!!!

I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

only 5 huh?  Coulda swore it was longer too.  I guess I just don't recall exactly when the dt.net split came to be.  40 days, 1 hours and 41 minutes sucked out of my life and given to this bitch.

Good times.

Yup.  We were May 2007.  I believe DT.net shut down in November 2006.  There was the grand experiment of www.dreamtheaterforums.com in between.  (yes, go ahead and click on it and see what happens.  You know you were thinking about doing it)

Yeah, it's hard to keep track, since many of us were here "before the beginning".  I don't really worry about the exact date of the split.

Ha ha you so funny.

Seriously though, I wanted to like that place, but the software they use just sucks so hard.  No way to subscribe to threads, no way to know which threads you've posted in, not even a way to jump to first new post in a thread.  They had "unofficial" forums right here that they could've adopted and made legit and had a built-in base, but they started from scratch with the most retarded forum software I've ever seen.  Literally.  Why would anyone with a three-digit IQ choose that software when there are so many superior options, many if not most of them free?

This actual community is MUCH older than 5 years, but in its current manifestation, it is only 5.

Next month will mark 12 years since I joined this lovely community.

Well it sorta has. I remember joining the original dreamtheater.net briefly in 2000 (my name was some kinda awkward combination of Ytse Jam and Status Seeker if I recall correctly) but got bored quickly and then checked back in for like a week in 2002, and finally joined for good in summer 2006.

A few months later, dreamtheater.com surfaced and eventually an irreconcilable rift created a Hatfield/McCoy dynamic between two factions of members which gave way to the split resulting in dreamtheaterforums.org and 5/8 if I'm not mistaken. I was still a month from even making one whole year in the community at that time so I'm not 100% sure of all these facts/dates so anyone who wants to correct any errors or inconsistencies in this post, feel free to do so.

Thanks!

For some reason I though this place was much older than that. 

This community goes back to when DT had an official forum in EZBoard back in, I think, 1999 or so.  Shortly after that, the forum resided at dreamtheater.net.  It was shut down on Mike's orders in November 2006, after which the fans from that online community set up an unofficial forum at DTF.com so that the forum community would continue.  During the 5-6 months it was there, it fragmented between (1) those who wanted it to be a DT-centered community, and (2) those who wanted it to be something else.  DTF.com became 5/8.  With help from some close to the band, I set up DTF.org the day 5/8 was launched, and the community once again continued.  (and I subsequently reacquired DTF.com, which now points here)  So, yeah, as a community in general, we date back to 1999 or so.  But in terms of this specific site run by me, we're 5.  Make sense?
