    Some people collect stamps. Some people support a football team. Some people are swingers...

    I, however, enjoy the pastime of reading old forum threads.

    However, given that the garbage pod was sadly sent to the... ummm... garbage pod, what are your memories or favourite threads from the old forum?

    I wished we could have saved some. @Seb ”fix it” for me please!!! Do they exist somewhere still?

    Tell you what. As a Red Dwarf Anniversary present, I will resurrect one old Garbage Pod thread. Nominate your picks in here and I’ll put a poll up to choose between them. You’ll have one vote each, winner gets brought back.

    CAVEATS:
    1. Not the Currently thread (too much drama in it)
    2. Not any other thread with too much drama in (I will check threads for drama once nominated)

    And there I was thinking that this thread was going to be about famous people named Fred that we won't miss when they've died. I was all ready to declare this to be worse than any thread that I've ever created. In fact, it's still a terrible thread, Ant, just not quite as bad as I thought it would be.

    I can't think of any ancient threads that I'd like to be resurrected right now. I'll have to have a long, hard think about it.

    Thank you for your contribution - long winded and pointless as I have come to expect with any answer you give over the years.

    What's with the terrible new avatar picture that you've got up there, Ant? Are you a massive Coronation Street fan or is it there as a piece of pointless randomness?

    Suggest it all you want - I'm still not going to vote for a thread that was one of the worst in the forum's history. Make a good suggestion and I might decide to vote for it.

    Ahhh so you prefer "Derail watch" eh? Or maybe even SgtSmiley's "I've created something dangerous" or whatever it was? Or maybe even simulant27's "The Aigburth Arms"?!?! Decisions-decisions!!

    I forgot about that one. An excellent choice.


    I think I may stick with Ant's Old Post(s) of the day - purely as it has a lot of old memories.

    Don't be ridiculous. It was rubbish. The Quiz Tennis was far better.

    Please don't waste your vote !

    That's true, it's like several threads in one.

    I nominate just about any of @Ant E 's old threads, most of them were worth a laugh or two at least. I'd say something that was at least 4 or 5 pages long though.

    Would it be nearly impossible to create a read-only archive of all the threads we lost, garbage pod or otherwise? If not, I personally would prefer that to getting any single thread back for replying to.
