Yes! Joe, Ever thoughtful and fun! I had the honour of meeting him 3 times! He came to Hong Kong and we had a lightning tour before he went home, I think from Australia. Then we met in London and had a fun lunch in the City. Lastly Joe and his lovely parents came on a trip to Hong Kong and we did the sights and had good food. It was great to meet you Joe!

Yes...Hong Kong !! You were so accommodating towards my parents as my dad wanted a new suit made and you knew exactly where to go and get it done within 2 days. Amazing!!

I can now be added to the list of 20 year members. This has been another family for me, and met about 12 people when they were in London but no one close enough to see more than once so far. I have seen the site grow gradually from just the forums, trivia archive and visitor's book (which I assumed I'd signed but can't see it there), adding Ask FT and daily quizzes, to what we have today. It also means I've been a member for a third of my life.

Having seen far and wide across social media this is still easily the most civilised and intelligent place to visit, and if Terry ever wants an official archivist I would certainly be happy to do it.

This is hard to believe. I just had my 16th anniversary come and go. I haven't been consistently active on FT or the forums, but I have spent large chunks of time since April 1, 2004 immersed in quizzing and reading (and sometimes posting on) various forum threads. This website has been like a trusted old friend and I have so many good memories, as well as memories of turning to FT as a shoulder to cry on too. I am very happy to see many of the same names and faces that were here in 2004, 2007, 2010, etc. I love this site!
And thank you all for making it what it is.

Shane

Wow! I was not a part of FT then, but I remember when many websites looked like that. And what a fun place FT certainly looked!

I clicked around a bit; the links still work. I wish FT still did the free e-zines; they looked really cool.

Sad to say I never purchased an FT mug or underpants. They may well have appreciated in value now as well.

Some of those names are really familiar, they were still active after I joined.
