DMMB nearly 5 years old !!!!

Discussion for Depeche Mode, and Depeche Mode related topics.

It's amazing to think that in just about 10 days time this message board will be 5 years old !!!

Ok... it's gone through several remakes over the years but I remember like yesterday the original DM site and it's "Under Construction" message.

So many DM fans have come and gone over the past 5 years.... the board was responsible for the first unofficial DM (beach) party in San Diego July 1999 when around 70 of us from the board (and from all over the world) met up for a crazy weekend.

Through this board I have met and made many friends both in the UK, USA and even Belgium... I even ended up meeting my future wife at the DM Beach Bash in 1999.

Many of those friends I have met I still fly out to see or they visit us.

I wonder if any of the original DM Board crew still visit here under different names ???

Totally agree with you NICHI, I have made so many great friends since June met a few of them before Dave's gig and that made the concert, also met totally amazing board member (sorry Smash you came 2nd or 3rd).
THanks Brat for everything you do for this site!
Thanks Fletch for thinking of it!

Congratulations us!

IN response to your question Pip, I think you still occasionally see Ginspu around, and maybe also Windscreen.

How come you have gone for 2 years making only 13 posts?

Thanks to this board I am in touch with people in Russia, Italy, Macedonia, Poland, USA and France, and that's excluding people I've sent one-off letters to like selling / exchanging DM stuff.

It's no mean thing to say that the people I consider my closest friends are people I've found on this board, a couple of whom I've met in person and had the time of my life with.
