And a worthy successor to the once-ailing and now barely alive alt.movies.silent NitrateVille has become! And that photo certainly is a wonderfully appropriate metaphor for the various discussions on both forums!

Yes, indeed. Congratulations to Mike and to all the moderators who work so well to keep Nitrateville as THE premiere site for discussing vintage films and related subjects. BRAVO!

Congratulations! Let's hope the Mayans were wrong so we can celebrate Nitrateville's sixth anniversary next year! :lol:

And now, as we steadily edge up to the 100,000-post and 2000-member NitrateVille milestones, is anybody planning any sort of celebration, on-line party, website testimonials, etc.? I expect one or both of the numbers will be surpassed by the end of this month or sometime in February.

Yes, the poster who makes the 100,000th post will get a free volume of the collected reviews of F. Gwenplaine MacIntyre! :P

If the Macintyre book only collects reviews of extant films, it might compete with "The Compleat Compendium of German Humor" for the title "Thinnest book in the world".

BTW Belated congrats to the fine people behind this forum! Happy fifth anniversary! :wink:
