Who will be HFO member #300?

Post by Misfit » Fri February 6th, 2009, 1:02 am

Doesn't it seem like yesterday we had #200? I see today's count shows us at #293 and climbing - hopefully DL and BB have the virtual champagne and balloons at the ready for the magic number when we hit it.

Maybe after I see the 299th member join, I'll create a special member named HFO300. That's who it will be, so bring on the champagne ...

I'm new to this site, and I'm curious - how old is it? I think it's a fantastic site and I've already told a few people about it...to whoever came up with the concept - Thank You!

Leyland, cheating cheating :D

MissMarplestein, as for this board it is great isn't it? Most of us used to post at historicalfiction.org but the owners shut it down in August '08 or thereabouts and diamondlil and boswellbaxter started this one up. The other board eventually came back up but it's been quite a snooze fest over there, and sometime in the last week or so it's gone down again. Who knows, we're quite happy here. :) :)

Wow! It does seem just a few weeks ago we were celebrating our 300th member. Congrats to all for the scintillating discussion that attracts all these new members.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info
