Unexplained Mysteries 20th Anniversary

Recommended Posts

 
ouija ouija

Thank you for creating and maintaining this site, Saru :tsu:

I came here when MySpace closed it's forum. I loved MySpace and was upset at the time, but by golly, am I glad I was forced to move! The special thing about this site, IMHO, is the way it is moderated. It's not perfect of course, but for the majority of the time everything is civil and people are given a fairly free rein to express themslves. Overall, this community is a wonderful place to be :D

Yes, 'Here's to the next 20 years!' and thank you again Saru.

Congratulations on 20 years. Here's to the next 20.

I wonder what UM will look like in 2041.

I remember Yahoo, Alta Vista, Netscape and Internet Explorer as if it was yesterday. Netscape was for the cool kids who hated Microsoft. The nerdiest of them ran Linux instead of Windows.
And the noisy modems using phonelines where you paid per minute. I was a website owner back then too, working hard to gain traffic from webrings and search engines (they didn't use bots, so you had to signup yourself, and hope to be accepted).

Running for 20 years, growing and improving, is amazing! Congrats!

Happy Anniversary, UM! Thank you to Saru and all the mods who have kept it running smooth for so long. I have vivid memories of stumbling onto this site when I was about nine or ten, then being a regular lurker until the day I was finally old enough to have an account. Here's to many more successful years!

Wow. Congratulations on 20 years Saru. And thank you to the moderators for all they do to keep things running smoothly. We have a close online community going on here. So many people I've had the pleasure to talk with over the years. So many members and mods I miss. It's always great when an old member comes back in to say hello. Looking forward to many more years to come.

In one anniversary thread, I had the chance to say hello to dAz. If he's still around Saru, tell him hello again for me. Thanks.

I have to admit that it is rare for me not to visit everyday.   I may not post,  but I check out the threads and status updates.   It gives me a place to discuss subjects that people in my real life don't talk about.  And when covid hit, it really allowed many of us to still have interaction when there was do much uncertainty.  This is my escape place

Thank you, Sara and Mods for so many great years.

As we've lost quite a few members over the last 20 years, let's dedicate it to all of them.

Hi dAz :tu:  It's wonderful to see you again. Hope all is well with you and yours. Can you believe it. 20 years and I've been here everyday for what will soon be 12 years unless I had computer issues. This has just been a wonderful site to be a part of.

They are actually all there, the problem is that the code for playing them isn't supported by modern browsers.... you'll be pleased to hear. :P

Happy 20th Birthday, UM !!!  :clap:

Congratulations to Saru on the success story that is unexplained-mysteries.com, and Thank You to all the Mods who keep order.

No doubt, we will be on UM many decades from now (and still arguing about Bigfoot) when we are all heads in jars!  :tsu:

Almost every message board I belonged to is offline and literally gone, a few became empty and rarely has new posts. But the UM remains a hot spot on the internet and it looks like UM will be around in another 20 years, so here's to you and may the site surpass my life expectancy (Cheers with tapping beer glasses)...I'm currently 41 (the midpoint).
