Hello everyone, and welcome to the 2.0 version of KnowFirst.
I thought it would be appropriate to explain who we are, why we’re doing this (again) and what we stand for.
Back in the early 2000s the owner of auspaytv.com, Pete Titcumb, got quite ill quite suddenly. Auspaytv was likely to be shut down. So @David and myself quickly spoke and got the KnowFirst forums up and running on VBulletin. It was a steep learning curve for both of us.
We primarily focused on pay television and technology, as a distinction between us and Media Spy.
We slowly expanded into the media fields, plus sports and lifestyle.
Over the past couple of years the site had to take a backseat as I battled illness, then work got in the way but now the work-life balance allows me to make a fresh start on this venture. So over the past few months, we’ve got the place up and running again, thanks to @David and @cramer.
Over the years, we broke stories… we were the first site to break the news that Foxtel was restructuring its channels, and first with the channel list. We were first with the Foxtel Movies realignment story and we pride ourselves on being fair and committed to making sure that you, our community, gets your media news in a way that’s easy to digest and easy to debate.
**We stand for this: **
1 - a positive, friendly, healthy environment where everyone is treated with respect and dignity.
2 - a place where media news and views stand together with members actively encouraged to debate and question.
3 - a place where @Mark gets the crap ripped out of him for being a Manly Sea Eagles fan. (err what, how did that get in here?)
We stand for one thing in particular however.
That you, our members, enjoy our site and feel welcome to contribute.
After all, that’s how a forum should work.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for being a part of our community.
Let’s make it great! Together!
