Default y8s has epic thread status

Never noticed it before. I only clicked on it because I was wondering why he was calling for a meet over there and not here, until I saw how old it was.

MX-5 Miata Forum - Who'd be up for a DC Metro meet now that it's warm?

2,905 replies and 37K views on a three year old thread. That's some staying power.

Yeah, that thread is used for pretty much anything related to the DC-area... organizing drives, people asking for help wrenching, BS'ing about the weather, whatever. The thread is kind of like an unofficial sub-forum.

Epic thread indeed, I'm a little behind on my biggest thread:

[ thejdm.com Junk Drawer ] : randomness

14994 views and 2654 replies, but it's even more of a catch-all.

If I don't figure out this Adaptronic, I might end up with the biggest "not trying to fail" fail thread on MT.net.

Well, I'm actually making a concerted effort, so I don't think I will be linked to eleventy billion other car sites, so no, I will never touch him. I might touch Hustler where he pees, though.

Now lets just hope the Moderators at .NET do not figure out our thread exists and is a complete waste of time.

Well, I just read the last two pages and now I understand. Looks like that thread must have evolved into the corner fire hydrant that all of the local dogs use, eh?

Yah it started out as all the local NOVA guys meeting up and going out somewhere. Then after that first meet we kinda just kept the thread going. Now its just all of us BSing most of the time with random usefull information popping up every once and a while.

I started that thread for exactly the reason I stated in it... I was new to the area and wanted to find out what was up. that was 3+ years ago.

I think they're smart to leave it alone for the most part. it gets lots of views and views means ad revenue.

but I'm just proud to be a worthless part of history.
