Four days late for the party, but here's to it! I think we had something like 340 people online that afternoon, too. What a moment. :D

Keyvan played on this day 5 years ago. He was a great character but he had a practically luckless game, and an unsuccessful gamble on box 23 was the final straw which saw Keyvan join the NOTHING network :(

Useless trivia - Keyvan was the last EVER man who stood in wing position E11 - the position that started with a long run of women, and ended with a long run of women (April 2014 also marked the last man in W11, which had mostly men in it at first, then went mixed, and after Craig who played in this month, it was all female for the rest of the show's run) - Oh how i miss my namesake James1978! :)

James1978, what an unsung hero of this forum he was. :)

What happened to him? He was always loyal to the forum and seemed like such a great guy, he was always very open-minded about the way people played their games and hardly ever got aggressive. Then he just......disappeared :|

Anyone heard from him lately?

First post here in over 5 years!

Wow, I'm amazed I'm even remembered TBH.

I did choose to stop posting on the forum actually, it came to the point where during the last year or so I posted here, all I was doing was bitching about other users' posts (first it was Norwich Donder who always seemed to snipe at the contestants, then Mark with his oh dears, then it was Mad Mark/Dr Hindsight/whatever else he called himself, then lastly ACB - though the latter did get much better after I left) - and not really posting anything constructive myself as I wasn't watching the show anywhere near as much as in the early days, so didn't feel I had anything to contribute any more. There might have been one or two more but they're the main ones I remember!

I can't have seen more than 20 games per year from 2014 onwards, though I did see most of the specials at the end of 2016 and the jackpot win on the last-ever show (which I felt was something of a fix!), and I absolutely HATED Box 23 - to have been used as anything more than a tool to see if people could rescue to extra 10 grand out of a trainwreck (and to keep viewers watching a trainwreck) , then the NOTHING option really needed to go (have something else bad, but not as bad as losing the lot!).

(God I've just realised I still have a signature of an old man who played his name nearly 13 years ago.......)

I must have some kind of psychic powers to get you back on here! :-D

I can't say i was a fan of Box 23 either, as it was just a gimmick they added to suddenly turn trainwrecks into decent wins and was essentially a more permanent version of the miniature boxes from Tracey's game, BUT i can seen why it was done, as we were just about starved of big wins and exciting games during the second half of 2013, as the majority of contestants during that era had become incredibly cautious and many were terrified of going on of 8-box! (plus the rare gamblers we had during that era nearly always ended up winning low amounts, which didn't help matters either). Box 23 at least gave contestants some motivation to keep playing as it gave players a chance to recover things if it went badly wrong.

We did have a great period of big wins in October 2015 with Ann becoming the 8th quarter-millionaire (and nearly blowing it by doing a "Mary" on box 23!!), £100k Harry and some powerful boards, which no doubt would've been a classic era for the show if it were in the pre-box 23, 45 minute slot era and wasn't for the fact that people were beginning to accept that DoND was running on its last legs

13 years ago today was £100k Gaz and 12 years ago today was Leila, who went from being brushed off by Theresa when advising her to deal at an ultra-generous offer, to being practically lectured into dealing by her mother when she played :roll:

12 years ago today it was £101,000 Graeme's game, I loved that game, had everything to make it exciting.
