Great start!

I did some grammatical editing: nothing major--just spelling and sentence structure type stuff. Probably wouldn't even notice, but wanted to give a head's up.

Guinness: for those who are men of the cloth and football fans, but not necessarily in that order.

I think the lesson here is the best way to enjoy GW's games is to not use any of their rules.--Crimson Devil

I have to make a correction about the iterations of dakka.

Technically, the iteration would be 6.

While I do not recall what forumware it was, there was indeed a board prior to EZboards use. It had a very short life span IIRC.

I am sure Russ can fill in that gap as the former webmaster.

Well I kind of moved near Toronto, actually.

stupid question but I am curious who else tried to buy dakka. They can PM me if they are private. Not that it is any of my business.

OT stuff updated. Rough draft that needs refinement if anyone chooses to do so.

Well, that probably explains why Russ told us he was on iteration #4 when we bought it. I was trying to figure it out and I jumped to some conclusions, but that's exactly why I'm asking anyone with a more clear memory (I have a terrible memory) to edit the article and correct the inaccuracies.

I did email Russ to have him take a look at the article, so maybe he can add more information then what he already provided me.

I think only Russ would know the Ebay user names. Or are you just hoping people that bid will let you know (assuming they post regularly on Dakka, of course)?

Fact: Vin Diesel was one of the original bidders for Dakka
Dakka, but he withdrew his bid after an extended duel with
Sean Connery wherein much banter and pseudo martial
arts movements were exchanged as a proxy for proper
negotiations.

Of course, the better man won.

Wow... I did not know I had been here that long.

Yeesh.

And Drew made me come out of lurking as well Yak... although I ended up arguing with Ed quite a bit more.

I just recently found out Dakka had originated from my home NH from a forum member Deffdread, he said he used to go play in the store and it was like an entire mill floor huge. Im proud to brag that my small state has contributed so much to the wargaming community. Im also sad that i was a kid when the dakka store was in its hay day... I walk by that mill building at least once a week and glance up nostalgically at it. All of us from NH should see that as an inspiration of how something so big can come from a state so small...
