    'Twas the night before Christmas, the forum was dead,
    No topics were stirring, not one little thread,
    With nothing in "recent", except for a list
    Of pretty old posts with a seasonal twist,

    And though I kept hitting refresh on the site,
    And sat through the evening and half of the night,
    Nobody came with a tale to be told -
    Not even a spambot. Not even @neilold.

    Suddenly then there arose such a chatter
    On Twitter I thought, what on Earth is the matter?!
    Looking at profiles I often perused,
    I found myself more than a little confused:

    "Why all the favourites, replies and retweets
    When @DougRDNaylor is listing repeats?
    #TROJAN #MECHOCRACY #LEMONS #DEARDAVE
    #KRYSIS #ENTANGLED #SAMSARA #TIMEWAVE..."

    But then I saw something that seemed very queer:
    Six of the titles were new for next year!
    I sprang from my chair feeling joyous inside
    'Cos #RD13 WAS NOW TRENDING WORLDWIDE!

    Doug let us play our predictable games
    (Like "who can decipher the episode names?")
    But tweeted, before he abandoned the site:
    "A smeggin' good Christmas to all, and goodnight!"

    Merry Christmas, forum! :thanks:
