I was cleaning up the announcements forum and discovered the post I made announcing the relaunch and rebuild of the site when we changed the name to ZooChat. That was 20th October, 2008 ... almost exactly 8 years before I relaunched the website again with new software this last Friday. That previous relaunch was itself almost exactly 5 years after first launching the site. Honestly I didn't plan it that way! 19 Oct 2003 first thread welcoming people to ZooChat: Welcome ! 20 Oct 2008 announcement about the relaunch: Welcome to ZooChat! 21 Oct 2016 announcement about the relaunch: Welcome to the new ZooChat Things have changed a lot in that time!
