Is there anywhere on this site that gives a bit of history on MiniMins, i.e. when did it start, what does MiniMins stand for, who's idea was it etc. etc. or if not, does anyone know the answer to these questions?

I would be interested to know, as I think this site is fab and whoever thought of it deserves a pat on the back :) :) :)

MiniMins opened its doors on July 19th 2006
It was envisioned by Mini (a housewife)
She asked me (her son) to make it happen as im an IT student.
And made possible by the dedication of our members.

On Discovery Health forums, Mini had a nickname Mini Mins which was given to her by a user called Brightness.

Think we could do with making this a sticky (maybe on Newcomers page??) - as lots of new people must join and wonder - when?? how?? why??

It is nice to have some of the history etc about our wonderful site.

Hi Pierce

Thank you so much for that and well done to you and Mum!, for the great idea and the great site that you have put together.

Considering you have not been around a year yet, you have plenty of members and they are growing by the hour!! the word is spreading fast

Since becoming a member on the 25th January, I have spent many an hour, many a late night, many tears and much laughter - absolutely fabulous - can't remember the last time I watched telly - well done !
