I Almost Forgot, Today Is Our Four Year Anniversary


Yep, it has been four fun (and drama) filled years. We started off as The Ladies Lounge and once the fellas invaded us we changed over to The Cocoa Lounge to show our true diversity. After a complete loss of data, including over 100,000 posts, we started over in 2004 and now three years later we are still going strong and with over 37,000 topics and 480,000 replies we are now just steps away from being one of the largest message boards online. Once we hit 500,000 posts I will be able to submit the site to Big Boards and we will be in an elite group as only a handful of other Black owned forums have reached this mark.

Much has changed over the years but not my reasons for starting this site. I wanted to create a Black Sanctuary. Whether I did that or not is up for debate, but some things are not- and that is my love for those of you who have stuck by me and this forum over the years. I thank you for your support and hope that 4 years from now we will be right here doing it all over again- TOGETHER.

Now somebody break out the 40's cause I'm feeling all emotional :rolling:

Happy Anniversary CL.



Whether you have a Ph.D., or no D, we're in this bag together. And whether you're from Morehouse or Nohouse, we're still in this bag together. Not to fight to try to liberate ourselves from the men -- this is another trick to get us fighting among ourselves -- but to work together with the black man, then we will have a better chance to just act as human beings, and to be treated as human beings in our sick society.

Damn time flies....I came here a few months before the 100,000 posts were lost. I remember us having to start over...I had to start my journal all over again. :lol: I've seen a LOT over the years...a lot has definitely changed over the years. J remember when I first got here and I told you that I was at the board I came from for 5 years? You were like :wow:....:lol: Look how long I've been HERE. :lol:

Im proud to be able to say I've been here through most of it all, thank you for having me. I remember when I got here I SWORE I was gonna be banned, I was trying extra hard to be good. :lol: ...I had that hot head ruff neck rebel mentality after coming from BV and then AO. This place was my sanctuary it's where I became......."Mellow".

:lol: I was just thinking about that time Reke and I were ranking on eachother in a thread and ya'll thought we were fighting and locked it up. :lol: That was my boy right there. We would CLOWN on this board. :lol:

Jeneen, you know Im proud of you and I'd like to personally say thank you for all that you've done with this board, and all you've endured yet still managed to stay strong and focused. I remember the vision, and Im honored to be here to see it actually happening, we aren't 100% yet but I think we're getting there. :lol: With a little prayer we'll make it. :lol:

Special shout outs to all the mods, admins and my girls Adrianne and Splen for being there through it all and all their help in making this place do what it do.

Ya'll :flowers:

Happy Anniversary CL, four years and countin' ya'll!! :rock:

Anyway I brought some drinks, let's take it back to the Ol'School up in heah! You know how we do!

*Grabbin a bottle off the shelf and pourin' out a little for the brothas and sistas that ain't here*

I'm also proud of you Shawna, for not only starting the board but also keeping it open when it was sometimes hard to.

I guess I've been here for 4 years now, and seen a lot of the drama go down but you've handled all of it well, which you probably do not get enough credit for.

Congrats
