      That's a very nasty rumour.

      Watch out we are offering something as a prize

      Re: number 5?

      skyuser.co.uk was born on 5th August, which just happens to be in 4 days time...

      could it be the first person to post on 5th August? or something on a radio broadcast on the 5th August? just like 'mystery voice' they used to have on a ropey local radio station here!!

      i bet it's 3 tomorrow

      do i win a prize

      After the announcement that Sky will be offering discounted Broadband to their existing customers Glenn (SatDish) and Ged (NewsreadeR) decided they would make the move to Sky Broadband as and when they could and also offer somewhere for Sky Broadband users to go.

      Ged found a suitable host and Glenn bought the domain Skyuser.co.uk, and after many hours and many drinks skyuser.co.uk was born and went live in the early hours of 3rd August 2006. Our forum as it stands today, was officially opened on 5th August 2006
      is that a clue ????

      Mystery solved:

      We wanted to celebrate our first birthday, and we are going to be doing so I feel in style. There will be an opportunity for one member to win a fantastic prize.

      To take part you have to be a SkyUser member, all staff of SkyUser and Sky / Easynet will be ineligible to take part.

      We registered the domain on 3rd August 2006, however our forum stats report the forum start date as 5th August 2006.

      Last 24 Hours: Threads: 32 | Posts: 216 [Get New Posts] | Members: 28
      Therefore to us it makes more sense to celebrate the 5th August as our official date. (We were possibly drunk for 2 days before we launched the forum) Then again, I think we took 2 days to get the forum created and populated etc.

      (more details asap)

      Depends how you read that sentence.

      If you mean, we are becoming an official forum, then no that is not going to happen.

      If you understand it as I wrote that, to us we launched the forum on 5th August 2006, therefore that is our birthday.
