Andalucia.com 27th birthday

Postby andalucia » Mon Apr 17, 2023 12:09 pm

Dear Forum Members,

Today is Andalucia.com 27th birthday.

We are not having a party (10th aniv) treasure hunt (20th) or Webinar (25th) but making early plans for the 30th.

We have been looking in the archive and discovered that the current webite is our ninth design.

Here is a copy of the home page from 1996, we thought it looked good at the time.

https://www.andalucia.com/andaluciacoms ... esign-1996

Notice in the left hand margin, what looks today like a rather old fashioned graphic for "The Notice Board" which was the predecessor system to this forum.

Best regards,

Forum Admin

Happy Birthday! It was invaluable to me when we first bought our house back in 2003 and I am very grateful for all the information I found here and of course, the help and kindness of forum members.

Fantastic achievement. Like Irene , we have received a lot of guidance ( and given some)

Any idea how many pages you have “ served” ?

Thanks for the good wishes everbody.

To answer Olives question. Last year was five million page views.

Since 1996? A quick estimate suggest about a hundred millon page views.

We bought our first house here in 1996 but unfortunately did not have internet and such things until until a bit later. Could have done with the advice of buying here at the time with all the problems we encountered first time around!

You're an invaluable source of all sorts of advice and help. I could not have fixed my computer problems or dealt with all the various paperwork and admin that I have managed to do without you lot on here!

And not just in Andalucia. Although it´s mainly for there and the South of Spain, It has helped me a great deal as well over the years.
Happy Birthday

When i first joined A.com we had already bought our property a few months prior, however i echo Wicksey's post...i could have done with the valuable advice i later found from here at that time. Over the years i have picked up so much info from here, thanks to the long standing members who have a wealth of experience. :)
