It's counted from when CoS as we know it went live and the current students list was created.

Correct. July is the official month CoS opened, but we were active for many months before that doing tests and such.

Thanks! I just find all this history very interesting, especially since I've come so late to the party. But hey, at least the party is still going strong!

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

7 admins, 11 unspeakables and 5 aurors. 23 people in total.
Of the admins two, Ali and Kizz, are techies dealing with technical things only.

The staff list is here

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

Hats off to the two techie people! Will there be anything for Halloween? New backgrounds?

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

I'm probably personally going to pout if we don't put the classical Halloween layout on which we already had over the last years, but I'm not sure whether there are also any plans for a fully new skirt. Since our techies have been quite busy lately my guess is there won't be anything new, but they often surprised me when I expected the least.

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

Reading this thread I wished for a while that Hollywood would make it into a movie a la The Social Network. Lots of juicy stuff at the beginning, great camaraderie that lasted remarkably long time, and even some gory actions and death threats too

Popcorn movie.

I thought they just made a movie about the founders of Facebook.

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

I'm new to this forum but run a small group on another fandom community and know it's complicated to deal with trouble as the group grows and individuals try to shake the balance! Congratulations for the long life and serious administration!

I thought of your prosperity milkshakes the other day which actually led me back here.

A Cos movie would be great.
I remember some of the drama.

My twin and I were like cos Fred and George for a time. Jessica was our Lee Jordan.
