Today nine years have passed since Morgoth (http://www.cosforums.com/member.php?u=3) registered as a member of CoS.

Anyone wanting to join me in thanking him for letting us be here all these years?

Sounds like a good idea. We've probably driven him bonkers loads of times over the years. :lol:

Thanks, Morgoth, for putting up with us. :lol:

I've met so many people through this site, and have taken part in so many awesome discussions. My Potter experience wouldn't have been half as great without this site. Thanks Morgoth for creating it and for allowing me to be here. My sixth year anniversary is a few days away and I've enjoyed every bit of it. Thank you. :) :clap:

Thanks, Morgoth! I've been here 1.5 years and love that there is so much different stuff to do and explore on this site. :D And I've met some great people and discovered new fandoms.

Thank you so much!

(btw... Is there no room for 9 stars?)

(btw... Is there no room for 9 stars?)If that were a problem I guess they could be arranged in two rows. I dunno if anyone has made the arrangements already, but anyway it's still early morning in the UK and I don't think it would be visible yet anyway.

*pats* for Morgoth! Thank you for putting up with us and for being so willing to keep this place going. I can't put into words that this forum has been for me, but I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to make friends here and to properly love a great series.

I am sincerely and deeply thankful for this place, it's done more for me than I imagined it could when I first joined. Thank you.

I hope the message on the main forum doesn't mean CoS will be closing?... I don't know if I could bear that. :(

Thanks, Morgoth - this is the best HP forum I have visited and it has come to feel like my home on the internet. I have "met" some fantastic people here, it's hugely enriched my understanding of the books, I've had some great debates and being able to debate and discuss things in such a safe environment, where people are expected to be supportive or at least civil, has really boosted my confidence. Thank you so much!

CoS wouldn't be here without the members 1 & 2, the first two admins, Steve & Val who conceived the idea of CoS and asked me to come on board very early on when MuggleNet's old forums were still alive and kicking (in a manner of speaking). Then there's Casey, Emerson & the other guys who helped with the maintenance of the site in its infancy and all the technical problems. The ever-wonderful Ali, whom I miss a great deal. Then you get the roll call of other staff that have come, gone and are with us now. All good good people who happily give their time to help out and deal with the everyday business, which can be hard. Too many to name in person here without it becoming an Oscar speech, but they are all wonderful people with good souls.

And to the members who post, debate, discuss, argue (sometimes). Very good contributors on here, for the most part. Thanks for stopping by and enjoying this little piece of HP fandom. :)

Yeah thank you guys so much. I had always been looking for a nice website to do discuss, well, anything, about HP and here it is. :) But I think the most important part of a site like this is the people on it. You're all great. Could we have a more perfect community for Harry Potter? I think not.

Congratulations on nine years of CoS! Thank you for making this wonderful site. I've been here for about five and a half years and it's been great. I must say this, if it weren't for CoS and the Magical Masterpieces sub-forum, I probably wouldn't have been introduced to making graphics, which I enjoy so much now. I learnt something new here. So, thank you. :)

It's hard to believe that it's been nine years since CoS opened. The CoS forums have been most enjoyable to visit, and it's been a great way for all HP fans to get together to discuss the books, films, issues, etc. I joined in 2005 and have met a lot of wonderful people. We are more than just HP fans, we're friends and family now! :)

To Morgoth and all of the staff that have come and gone and those that are working now I want to offer a very sincere Thank You. I won't pretend to know how much work goes into something like this but I am sure it is not as easy as you all make it seem. You have enriched the HP experience by offering us a forum that is family friendly.

Thank you all so very much.

Nine years... It is impossible to think that the film franchise is ending after over a decade of work. I am honored to have been a part of these forums for two-thirds of its running time, and I cannot thank you, Morgoth, enough for all your time, effort, and finances into this website. As others have said, my Harry Potter experience would not be the same without this website, and it is largely because of your efforts that I have been able to enjoy the fandom as much as I have. I cannot thank you (and all the members of these forums) enough.

BublGumPnkHar
July 13th, 2011, 7:20 pm
It's been 6 years for me. This is the only forum I have stuck with and it's all because of the way it is run.

The example comes from the top and reflects back on you.

Thanks for a all-user friendly place to discuss Harry and other interests. I signed up to reply to Mugglenet editorials and found a whole rich world of discussion. Thanks so much. It has been a joy for an old lady to have meaningful discussions with so many of different ages and cultures.

Thank you for allowing us to be here. I've only been here a year, and my only regret is that I wasn't here sooner to experience even more magic with you guys... The franchise maybe wrapping up, but I think it's safe to say that most of us aren't leaving here for a long time. Thank you once again Morgoth :)

Thanks Morgoth for all your work on the site. It has been a real joy these past 5 years to be part of the HP community on the best Potter forum I've found. Not everywhere can cater for young teens and oldies (like me) and make us all feel welcome and part of it. You and your staff have done a great job, and are still doing. Congratulations!

I think hes too busy to playing villians this year to grace the party. We dont want him to jump out of the cake as Star Trek villian or as Smaug/Necromancer... :scared:

Anyway, I didn't know that CoS has been around for nine years now. I joined about six years ago, and I've been a regular user. It's odd that I missed the first three years, but then again, I wasn't a follower of HP until the 3rd movie came out...

Happy birthday, CoS!

merrymarge
January 31st, 2012, 4:10 am
Well, I thought of having Alan Rickman jump out of a cake, but I think he is busy, that's why I thought Snape would be better. All he is doing is worrying about missing buttons and fangirls sending him love letters!!

Seriously, thanks again, COS for being here for us fans. We appreciate you.

ccollinsmith
February 4th, 2012, 4:56 pm
Hmmm... how about this solution? We get The Doctor to jump out of the cake!

... or would we then just fight about whether it should be the 10th Doctor or the 11th Doctor? :lol:

I don't think anyone will complain if we just go ahead and arrange for the 10th Doctor to jump out of the cake. We should just do that ;)

captain_mills
February 5th, 2012, 2:32 am
If it's nine years of CoS, then it should be the 9th Doctor... Though to keep this family friendly, I'll just say that I would prefer any of the female companions over the guy himself... I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, but it would just be wrong... ;)

I'll vote for Ten jumping out of the cake as long as he's in his happy, bouncy mood, and not his OMIGAWDSOALOOOONE mood. :yuhup:

Otherwise, Nine or Eleven wouldn't be bad. And we should make sure the cake's edible. :drool:

Keep in mind that an emo Doctor would not be as inclined to dance and party with us as a bouncy Doctor would. :love:

Can I design the cake? I have some ideas (http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2579/3740634050_8728bc7cb8_z.jpg?zz=1)! :love: :elaugh:

Oh goodness. I hate this place. Will it just go away already? How did it last for ten years?


:p Just kidding! Congrats on lasting a decade!

Ten years- wow. Did I dream that this place used to be black and red when I joined (when the site was less than a year old) or was that real?

posting staff pictures?

for anyone who is interested, there is a thread with the story of COS and how it came about. Very good story, too.

10 Years? Looong time. Congrats all for sticking with it, for those that have come and gone and to those stubbornly refusing to give up on Harry Potter. Here's to another 10... wait, WHAT AM I SAYING?!

The absolute truth, hopefully. :agree:

I wish we could have some kind of online forum anniversary celebration, one in which the older members were invited back to participate. Maybe we could make it a Hogsmeade-only event?
