The most memorable 'event' that happened on the Oct 15th 2003, we stumbled on Unker Chip's stolen Ford Escape! His car was reported stolen a few days before and it was all over AW especially the NMT. We had to basically camp around the 'crime scene' and made sure the cars is there until Mrs Chips came. (Chips was away). Met up with few more forummers there while staking out. Everything turned out alright that day and it was amazing the power of forum and its community can do!

The oldtimers might remember this forummer: HMShebuy, who always loitered around in NMT late at night and flood the forum with his/her gibberish.

From the official stats:
- Joined: 2-March 03
- Last Seen: 7th October 2003 - 01:31 AM

I remember back then I actually managed to match him/her post-for-post on certain nights.

TheGunner post reminds me of this forum member called "monster". I can't remember what happened, but he ended up spamming Autoworld and treating me like big time enemy. Calling me with names, cursing, etc, and keep creating new ID as they were banned... like monster111, etc. And like what TheGunner said, I have to follow him - but not posting after him, instead deleting his posting one after another and banning his many ID. And he strike normally during school holidays in the wee hours.... sad.gif

And we also have wajalove, wajaetc who keep going round the forum everywhere to say Waja can beat Merz, BMW, Evo, etc.

And during Unker Chips times, he told me he sleeps with his laptop beside him on the bed just to be sure to keep AW forum out of these seasonal maniac.
Regards,
Jaime @ AW

Well the previous owners did not really appreciate what everyone was doing to sustain AW. This community has held itself together and spawned other communities elsewhere too. You can say that AW fathered a lot of Malaysian online communities. Had the investment gone in to grow AW, we might have grown to be like the AirAsia of the cyberworld! Now we are split all over the place. Still it is good that the new owners of AW now take it very seriously. Long live AW! smile.gif
