Who would have thought it 21 today !!

note added: there was a forum running since 1997 but the name dafc.net was registered on this day 21 years ago and we moved everything across then.

Well done, Brian. I sometimes feel that your contribution to this little corner of the football world is under appreciated. But rest assured, not by everyone. There have been good times and there have been bad times, but you`ve seen it through to what it is today. Not to mention what you have done with Pars TV. Congratulations on 21 years!

Last May, I started a thread on the whole history of dotnet, how it began, who were involved, some of the early meetings of the dotnet group, the creation of Parscelona, etc. Eventually, we established that it all started 30 years ago in a Scottish university when a clever lady thought, "I wonder if there are any other Pars fans out there?"

I have put a link below.

[URL]https://dafc.net/forum/read.php?f=1&i=1787980&t=1787463#reply_1787980[/URL]

It would be helpful if you could put that thread in the Sticky Forum as so many people added really interesting bits of history to it. Over time as the oldies on here drop off our perches there inevitably will be people asking how did this all start?

In their own way, DAFC.net and its predecessors have played a significant part in the Dunfermline Athletic Football Club of the modern day.

Long may you continue doing your stuff, Brian.

For us exiles with little opportunity to attend games DAFC.net has been a Lifeline. Er, no, not that one! Thanks, Brian. As OzPar says, your efforts are much appreciated by most.

Happy 21st, Dotnet. I wasn't there at it's inception but I'm certainly making up for it now. πŸ˜„

Well done, Brian, both for setting up the site and for sticking with it through thick and thin.



Not your average Sunday League player.

Cheers Oz, and everyone

It`s not me that made it, it is the fans.

Yes indeed has its ups and downs, trials and tribulations.
No point in getting upset and falling out over a forum. 😁

My plan this year is to plan for the next 21.

Well done, Brian.

Football fans have strong opinions and are not afraid to express them, so you need a thick skin to manage or administer a forum like this.

I don`t expect to be around for the next 21-year anniversary, but I hope dafc.net (or something like it) still is.

Happy Birthday - I have a feeling the email group started in 1993 or thereabouts as I believe I mentioned it in a programme in 1994 then when I left my job at Edinburgh Uni I handed it over to a student in St Andrews which I believe turned into the 1997 forum. I feel very old now remembering when we met up at the East Port people calling me mum. Now if only my memory would allow me to remember what happened yesterday instead of over years ago.

"My plan this year is to plan for the next 21."

I should hasten to add that very few of them will be with me at the helm. Retiral will need to be looked at. 😱

Wow that long since we were using Rivals where you could post under any username you wanted without having to login or register. Was great for going on other teams board and noising them up. Posted as Henrick`s Tongue on the Aberdeen one after Celtic smashed them about 8 nil at Pittodrie and Larsson got a few and had the cheeky sticking tongue out celebration. The seathe was hilarious, pretty cruel but I was still bitter about the playoffs pitch invasion and goading πŸ˜‚.

Thanks to the guys who run this site it`s generally good stuff on here....except when we lose.

Sorry looks like it was 7 nil at Parkhead in 2002. Looks like there have been 2 7 nils and a 9 nil fairly close together.

Actually the 9 nil was 2010 but saw 2 6 nils and a 5-1 so a few doings over the years.
