Well, a few days ago I passed my 10 year anniversary here at SD.

I thought I would open up a thread for those members who have passed their ten year mark and are active members in good standing here.

(Hint: If you are still able to post...you are in good standing)

Come on in and enjoy the water. Talk about the many experiences the years have brought us. Old members who no longer post here. Notable experiences (ie with the Liaoning), friends you have made...how SD has made your life better.

Remember, only members with 10 years at SD are members of this club and can post here.

One of the things I love about this site is finding people of good will and reason from all over the world, and letting us know we are not really as different as some power mongers and pure ideologs (in pretty much every nation) would have us believe.

Yep...it sure does. You were here ten days before me.

So many others can post in here and make their presence known too.

Popeye, Tphuang, AssassinsMace, Deino, Sampan, T-U-P, swimmerxc, and of course the oldest of all, Webby.

Several others will hit their ten year anniversary in the next ten months too.

There were two other short-lived SD forums before way back then. I was a member of those but had a different user name. I think I was visiting SinoDefense before they even had a forum. The main site is only a shadow today of what it was back then. It was the go to site to get info and specs on Chinese military hardware. I haven't come across any other site that was as extensive than that one back then. Huitong's was good too but now he only covers Air.
 
Woohoo! I feel old... or is it experienced? I initially joined the forum to kill time while I was out on short term disability because of shingles on my face and head including around one eye, I forget the specific China military not topic then that caught my attention. Has been on and off as a visitor for a while and didn't really get active as a poster until the past few years. Learned a lot on this site, glad it has lasted this long and hope forum members now and in the future keep it going for at least a decade more.

I'm in?

Today is the 10th anniversary after I first join SDF in Jan 16, 2006. At that time I was cautious before deciding to join the forum. I asked myself who are they? What are their purposes when a western forum talking about Chinese military? I downloaded a huge bunch of photos from the forum because the SD main site had too few photos. I remember I had a little problem a member that at that time I didn't know he was a moderator, BD Popeye. He traced the IP of another member (who I don't remember). I thought this violate personal privacy because IP identifies the person's location. I also remember I caused quite a chaos when I said my parents were guerilla fighters during the Vietnam war; however, I quit the discussion almost immediately.
