    Do you have a thread that you still remember, even if it was locked, or went inactive years ago? This is the place to share those memories of threads gone by. And has anyone seen a Gonk knight lately?

    I'll start.

    My favorite thread ever will be the Shaving Habits of Big DV. A simple question about how Darth Vader shaved turned into a crazy community obsessed with Darth Vader and his sheep. In a time when there was only premade icons to chose from, this was the first social thread to get its own icon, still sported today by @emilsson . I also met two of my best friends in that thread in emilsson and @Queengodess

    The original thread was started in the OT forum, but got locked, and I can only find the v.2 in the SWC, but parts of the original thread was reposted there. Shaving Habits of Big DV v.2.

    I feel compelled to posit that YJCC classic where everyone was challenged to engage Comet in typed-out rap battles.

    I'm thinking about Iron Fist of the Obsidian Sith in Fan Films, but that was more of a running joke spread over many, many threads way back in the early 00s, rather than a specific thread. Also, I kind of hated that joke then, but I see the humour in it now.

    Uh, I guess you had to be there. :p

    Papercups, I don't even think I participated in the original thread. But the thread was already a classic then the hilarity magnified 1000 fold after finding out almost ten years later that the kid worked with me and we never knew each other posted on the forums.

    That’s my favorite thread I’ve ever started/hosted.

    Favorite thread overall, Things You Never Knew Existed by @Debo. That’s when I fell in love with these boards and knew I was going to be a lifer.

    The What is meatball thread wins by a wide margin :)
    Someone in the fan film forum wanted to ask a question about metaballs (something to do with 3D modelling IIRC) and wrote meatball instead. The few Swedes in the forum quickly made it into this crazy discussion about the correct way to eat meatballs. It was hilarious.

    Tough to pick which one of the Jedi Drafts is my favorite. But I'm going with this one

    The various draft threads have been awesome across the boards, have lead to some great friendships, and fantastic distractions from the problems of life. I can remember draft threads getting me through some depressing days when I could only manage to get a temporary job in a plastic factory making children's toilets, and would spend my softs thinking about who I might draft to avoid confronting my pain. And, just recently, the hilarity of five Shaqs helped to distract me as my wife left me. And, so many good memories in between, and still being created.

    Long live the draft.

    I'd say the entirety of any of the Big Brother games (though the one I participated in obviously gets tops on that).
