    (2) If you could see us do one thing in 2006 what would it be?


    (3) How could you help make this a better site in 2006?

    Happy Birthday Muppet Central!

    I remember finding this site in 1998, and I was instantly hooked. I liked stuff like the listing of the top muppet songs that people wanted to see on a special CD release, various Muppetzine artices (by the way, why were those taken down?), the Rarely Seen Muppets articles, and news involving Muppets from Space and Elmo In Grouchland. It was also here where I learned about the contents of The Best of Kermit on Sesame Street.

    I didn't start reading the message board untill May 1999, and I didn't register to post untill last summer.

    if I could see Muppet Central do one thing, I would say update or add some new pages. Get the season three guide for The Muppet Show finished. Start an episode guide for another henson series. Update the collectables guide (it's hardly been updated since it started in 2002). Or just make a special birthday page for Muppet Central.

    Happy Birthday MC!!! :excited:

    And to answer your questions Phillip...

    1) My fondest memory of MC would be MopFam, TogetherAgain fan-fics, writing my own fan-fics, Beauregard fan-fics, T*K*O, muffining, penguining, ziffeling, and so much more stuff!!

    2) Hmm, one thing for MC to do this year...Personally, I'd say whatever they've been doing over the past 8 years that's made this place so awesome!!

    3) What can I do? I can write more fan-fics, and help new members and old alike to make this place better than it already is! (And trust me, that's not easy :) )

    Thanks for this site Phillip! I'm proud to call it my second home!

    Happy Birthday! I brought cupcakes. They have chocolate icing. :)

    Everyone here is so fun and supportive here, and in general a great crowd and a fun place to hang out. I'm really proud to say that I've been a member for just over 1 of those years. It's not very long, just a small slice in Muppet Central history, but I'm glad I was a part of it!
    One of my (innumerous) favourite memories is from that one night where we all had nothing better to do, and just ziffeled and muffined (and penguin'd!) like crazy. And of course I can't forget the T*K*O: thread killa's unite! And when MWoO came out; that was interesting. Everyone, whether they liked it or not, was SO hyped for it. Most members online at once that MC has ever seen, I believe.
    Something that has room for improvement would be the articles section; what's in there is fab, but new articles don't appear too often. I myself am not even sure how that works, if anyone can review a product, or what.
    How could I help make this site better? :D I don't know. It's pretty good as it is. But I'll come up with something soon.

    Happy 8th birthday MuppetCentral!!!!!!!!!!
  7. redBoobergurl Well-Known Member

    Yea! Happy Birthday Muppet Central! And only a few days away from my own 1st anniversary!

    1. Favorite memories: All of the friends I've made that share a common bond of loving Jim Henson and all of his creations
    2. What should MC do? Continue being the best place for fans to find out the latest news and updates on the Muppets
    3. What can I do? Continue posting, sharing my love of the Muppets and spreading the word about this great site!

    How could you forget that night?! That was amazing!! We should do it again sometime...;)

    Beauregard's Birthday Wishes...for MC..

    Beauregard's computer won't let him enter MC,he's having problems with it,so he's asked me to respond and post for him.


    What are my greatest memories...wow...hard to pin one down over so many years of being here through so many generations of MC. Golden Emmy/Jackie days, crazy newbie days, and the totally Mad mopFam generation! So, impossable to pin down any one moment except, maybe, the day I first joined MC.

    One thing I'd like to see in 2006 is a new Forum banner! :insertpleedingpleasejamiesmiliehere: But seriously, I'd like to see more fan work, articles, fanfics, etc, being hosted on the site. Though that would probably be an impossible amount of work.

    How can I? Well...hmm...let's see...I could not pull this rope that is attached to the trap door under Kevin's feet on the stage there...I could free penguins...No, Ahem! Well, I'd like to help in anyway I can!

    1. There was the time that I first joined, around the same time Frazzle did, and he was the first one to welcome me here at MC. Then as I started to hang out at the Sesame Street board only, because that was the main reason I came here, was to discuss Sesame Street. Then I started wandering off into other boards like Puppetry and General Discussion. Then there was the time I wanted a more muppety screen name, so I changed from Courage-Bagge to D'Snowth, which everyone knows me by now. Then I started making a whole bunch of new friends that have come and gone, but most of them have stayed, and I became part of one of MC's original shows, and people started PMing me, and I'd PM them, and people would tease me about liking Kathy Greenwood, and people wouldn't know what I was talking about when I would make M*A*S*H references, and then everything went crazy, and I love Tommie, and Fozzie Bear becames a moderator, and blah blah blah yap yak blah blah blah blah yakkity yak yak babble babble blah yak utter speak talk communicate utter talk speak yap yap blah blah dwibble dwibble dwibble!
    2. Add some more random Sesame smileys (Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Grover, Snuffy, Telly, and even Elmo).
    3. Hey, this site's perfect already blah blah java!
  11. Katzi428 Well-Known Member

    Happy Birthday to Muppet Central!!I joined a while back but then left (I think this was back in the days when MC was in Delphi) I'm glad I came back though:)
    1)Favorite Muppet Memories would have to be the Muppet College Dorms & everyone supporting me when things weren't going the best for me. (The support I got was/is incredible & I'm thankful for everyone for being here for me)
    2)One thing I'd want for MC to add is more smileys (ex: a Grover for hugs ,the Swedish Chef for hungry or food,you get the idea)
    3) What can I do? Well....I love writing,so I should get myself in gear and write a fanfic.(I had been working on a Muppet Show fanfic but a lot of you don't know who the guy is that'd be the guest star. So I'd need to explain before beginning the fanfic)
    Other than that,that's it. I give you mods a lot of credit!
    Muppety Hugs,
    Kathy
  12. 1. Oh boy, I could never forget you guys "welcoming" me here. That is something I will never forget. I will always remember all the cool people I met here. You all rock.

    2. Add a laughing smiley

    3. I wanna post more to become a senior member!! Which helps because what is a muppet board without muppet fans posting?
  13. ryhoyarbie Active Member

    1.)Beau and I getting trapped in the year 3004, with Micheal Jackson still being alive.
    2.)I don't know.
    3.) I could make it better if I came here more often. Or if I finished up some fan fics I started.

    (1) One of my favorite memories is when Kevin used to be able to join us on the Role Play Games. We had so much fun back then! I wished that all the RPG’s could have that magic that they used to have!!!!! I also enjoy MoppetFamily story. It is so much fun because we never know where we are going to end up next!!!!

    (2) Something I would want added to MC is a chat room. One that doesn’t have a firewall protection on it. (Kinda like the one on AL.COM) I would love to just chitchat with some of my friends on here.

    (3) I don’t know how I can make MC better but I think that if everyone continue to post and play on here we will have another successful year here. We have to keep the Muppets alive!

    8 Years?? Cool! I'm still surprised that there aren't action figures of us all made by now. :)

    I want to remind everyone that the forums have been around so long and remained as strong as they have because everyone here have a relationship that makes us like that family Kermit describes about his friends at the end of TMM. The patience we all give to people in our everyday life, when carried over into our internet worlds, help us create life-long bonds with people who do become our very good friends.

    Let's keep our family bond going, and maintain this relationship and see MC through the next 8 years and more!

    I remember hearing about this site just before it's 5th birthday, and I make it a point to visit this place when I can (which seems to be all the time!) This year's been particularly great, because not only did we see the first season of two of Jim's best shows, but also, if it wasn't for this site, I would have never got to go to LA and audition. Thanks you guys.

    Honestly, I like the way things are goin around here... update info on the seasons of The Muppet Show by starting on Season 3, maybe have a Muppet clip of the day. It would work like MC Radio, but it would be a video clip from TMS, SS, FR, the movies, and they'd change day by day. So it'd give fans to see stuff to see stuff they hadn't seen in years or stuff they just can't get enough of. They could be either songs or special moments in the shows or movies. Just something to think about.

    What can I do? Um... I'll get back to you on that ;)

    Birthdays rock!

    Happy Birthday MC! You are solely responsible for the best Christmas and Birthday I think I am ever to have this year. Why? Where else would I find out about all the excellent Muppet gear? I would never have known about the Muppet Show and Fraggle Rock shows being released on DVD...they are both wrapped and waiting to be opened in my house somewhere at the end of the week...lol. My very Muppet Christmas consisted of a Muppet Show bag, a Kermit star to top my tree, a whole set of Doozers and Fraggle toys, a collectable Henson stamp, Kermit and Piggy dolls in hockey jerseys and so much more! The only reason I even knew these things existed is because I read about them at Muppet Central! (And that my sister is a very good listener...picked up everything I mentioned and went ahead to hunt them down for me 'cause I'm spoiled...lol) Thanks for giving me a place to enjoy all things muppety with other like-minded folks! :)

    Happy 8th birthday Muppet Central


    1. My favorite memories would have to be Muppet College Dorms, TKO, My first roleplay, and of course the night of the ziffles and the penguins(even though I missed out on participating in it)

    2. Not much you could do to improve on perfection, but maybe put in more episode guides, lol

    3. What could I do to improve MC?, well I can probably get some of the cobwebs on my fan fice and finish that up, eh? lol
  20. Oh yes, a chat box would be a great addition. We could all chat to eachother!
