It was in 2008 and the vision of ONE person on here ( Orkney.)  The MMOC site was experiencing connection to the site problems (long since resolved) but frustrating at the time.

Kevin (Orkney) single handed did the research and developed this site. Launched 13th March 2008 by informing a few people of its existence and it took off from there. Threads were added by suggestions of all and fine tuned to what we have today. Freedom of speech and the ability to advertise was essential to Kevins beliefs and remain so to this day.

So I think it is very important to have on record without the vision and effort to create what we have today, it would just not exist.




Here here!  Well said!!
