This is a question Happy 10th Birthday B3ta

Ten years ago today we launched B3ta (well the version of it you'd recognise). Happy birthday B3ta! As a special one off please add your memories of B3ta here. E.g. How you found the site, or an early thing you saw on the site, maybe the people you've met or how the community is/was part of your life.

Welcome to The Dutch Inventor Mediocre's house of b3ta oddities
Like most people, I lurked for a good year before signing up.
I was a bit uncertain about my english at first (ever since, several people have told me I was a bit 'odd', certainly at the beginning), which made me hesitant to post anything myself.

Most of the time, b3ta is like having a laugh with a couple of good friends to me. Sometimes, real friendships develop.
What I really enjoy is the unpredictability of a bandwagon coming out of nowhere and picking up speed, leaving even its creators puzzled as to why it's so hilarious. The ones that nobody really understands are the best.
Phrases like "Neck sounds great", "Maybe your legs has just grow", "Frog fucks granny", "Low fucking poly", "Kasto Krut", "So wow that's a neato what now right", "RIS? I don't get it" I consider text bandwagons.
Also unpredictable and sometimes funny: massive flounces (TOO BROWN).

I would like to take this opportunity to list some of my favourite fucking threads (that I've bookmarked anyway):
IT'S FUCKING POTATO TIEM!
Tin foil hats
Magnet movies
horse is a alien (Beware!)
E.T., You're So Big !
Romero the Champ
They are all a bit magical while they last. But when you look at them later on, you only have the memory of having a long and good laugh over it.

Also, I would like to name several b3tans not posting on /board anymore, for various reasons. I miss their shennanigans. Names that spring to mind (and I'm sure I'm forgetting some):
Jessie, That Nikon Fella, olivier8, Duke of Prunes, M3, Captain Wow, GrandmaOfShoes, Reckless_Rik, postbear, king brown cow, Redsushi (Whoop! Whoop!).
4EVa in R hertz.

Oh, and I got the 7,000,000th post too.
