A quick history

Geetham.net was registered on 8th of december 2002
Site started on 23rd of december 2002 - we only had a forum in tamil

One of the first forum http://server1.ripplehost.com/~rh20/forum/ :ahha:

we had another version of forum.... then

we created a new forum with existing users....

Then we changed the forum main language to english because our tamil people couldn't write tamil - :lol: :lol: :lol: what a shame
some of our greatest old members stoped coming to our forum :cry: :cry:
http://server1.ripplehost.com/~rh20/forums/

Now our Foum with many many active close friends - i feel so happy - words can't describe :D :D :D :D :D :D

You are right Minik....There should be a celebration for Geetham on December 23.....when Geetham entered the world....The next 2 days we should celebrate for Christmas....So we shall wait and see what Geetham decides....

What was your inspiration to start the site?
My hobby is creating websites; I always wanted to make a website so all the tamils can get together and contribute. I feel happy when people visit our website.
Geetham was my website but its not any more, its our (http://www.geetham.net/forums/staff.php) site..., geetham is run by tamils for tamils, we are growing there is no limit ... :ahha:


And are there gonna be any nice surprises for the 1st year completion???
we are having suppresses everyday, we will see ... I am sure arumugam, vennai and our mods will comeup with something..

I entered in June just to test my graphics skills in the web.
And why I entered into this site is because of the back ground which helps for any type of graphics. I enjoyed a lot and at one point of time I was the only person who filled all topics and this tamil terra guys too laughed at me what I told tha there is a site called geetham.net/forum is there. Most of the time vennai1 too was contributing with good strength of messages. Then mahavan came and etc etc.. finally sri_gan came into the forum. Geetham got very active group that time only. Then slowly slowly geetham improved from 2100 members to 4800 :00::00::00: members and total per day postings are sometimes touching 500. That is why now 16 moderators. In the initial days only Shruthy , shanrenu , mahavan are the lady members and sri_gan introduced receipe section and now forum is full of lady members. Once only 12 Active members and now 46 Active members , 14 Special guests , 62 Semi active members . And still geetham growling like anything.

Yaa forgot to tell one thing..

1. I haven't tried my graphics skills here till now for what I entered into the forum
2. The other forums who laughed at this forum are dieing day by day :lol::lol:

--------More to come.

Hello Bala,

I am quite surprised to learn that Geetham less than a year old since its first launch. We sure have come a long way...

Though we don't often see your work explicitly, we do realize the amount of work you must be putting in - it is simply amazing.

On behalf all the Geetham folks, I want to join Vennai in expressing our gratitude... Many thanks!

Three Cheers to our Admin !!!

But before that I wud like to hear more about Geetham itself.... Other than the starting dates n stuff, it wud be nice if the Admin could kindly tell us how he feels about the growth of Geetham to what it is now.... and also how he felt when he saw the number of registered users increasing and what was going on in his mind !!! And if possible about ur future plans too... But if U wud wanna keep that a surprise for the Geethamites, then we can leave out the last part....

Wud U please share your views ADMIN ????? :) :) :)

He won't share his views here. On his behalf only I have to write.

Hi all,

I am very happy that madhu started this topic. I too wanted to know..

First and foremost, thanks for Admin, Arumugam and all the moderators. Finally the users who use these forums and make it active.

My experience: I am very happy I could have so many friends here..
First when I came here, chumma recipes paaka varuvaen.. movies paaka varuvaen.. then one day started reading the posts and got very much involved, started talking myself. It felt as if I am home. Even though I havent seen any of you, its like I have known everyone for a long time.

This site is very lively because of the nature of it. Everyone are considerate, kind ands easy going.

Also we all people are far away from our home, country, city...etc and this site brings us all together

I love this site and will try to do something useful here and there, until they throw me out..

Sari.. sabu.. you tell about your geetham experience..

My experience at Geetham has been a very pleasant one. Initially I used to come to Geetham only with the intention of downloading movies. Forums endra section pakkam thala vechchu kooda paduththadhilla... aanaa one fine day when I came to know about the active members thingie I became more interested in Geetham. I came to know that 100+ postings are needed for becoming an AM.

At first, my aim was to post some useless 100 postings and stop with that once I got the AMship. But after about 50 posts, I realised that I had started to fall in love with Geetham. Kaalaila saami kumbudareno illayo, mudhal velai Geetham la irukkara recent topics ennannu paakkarathu thaan. Andha alavukku aai pochchu. I lost count of how many posts I submitted as I kept on participating with full interest. In fact I think I got my AMship only after some 200 posts which I didnt even know until one day thalaivar's Baasha was posted and it was active members only.

Only that day I realised "aahaa nammala active member aakkitaangala? sollave illaye?". I have made Geetham one of my permanent bookmarks. In fact it is the home page for my Mozilla browser. As far as the makkal are concerned, people like vennai, madhu, vasan, shy, sofia (seri seri vera vazhi illama add panniten; list perisa theriyattume nnu thaan!!!) etc. make life very interesting with their posts.

Wish Geetham a very long life for their excellent service to the Thamizh community!

Butter,

Nalla sonneenga. It really feels like home, pulling each other and at times getting to know microwave recipes, standing time, love matters and life and death matters too.

But what is that alzheimers? Is that an acronym for dead cells of brain? Well, then my brain is full of alzheimers, after so many years of not using many parts of it. :lol:

My history towards Geeetham was very much different than others...first naan-nu solla mudiyathu inga 4 ppls came inside and I lasted everlong in Geeetham...I have to say that I have became here as an addict....mmmm well u all know I just use to type one or 2 line message mainly on Diwali time....Then Srigan posted me the first private message not to be so active with one or 2 lines....then I read one of the post of Father "If u want to become an active member just reply to srigan....then I started to reply him....I was just with a little interest then I was surprised to be an active Member....Then with co-operation of Geeetham I m very proud to be a Moderator.....and I m very happy to see that one of my post stands in 5th position in Geeetham Statistics......I m really7 very happy about this......

I Honourably wish Geeetham for its 1 year celebration....

Advance Happy Birthday Geeeetham....

Be Happy....

It is good to know that geetham is going to celebrate its First Anniversary(birthday) soon :baby: . Credit goes to the Admin,Aaru,Vennai,Sri_Gan,othe r moderators and mainly people supporting geetham,to say in short the whole geetham family. I used to visit geetham site just for movies earlier,but once they started the active member concept i had no choice but to visit other topics n post 1 or 2 line msgs to get the activemembership. After getting the activmembership i really started involving myself in other topics. This might sound funny too,but naan paatukku paatu section la post pannina replies paarthu ennakku andha topic ku moderator position koduthu irukaanga. Ofcourse matha topics leyum i do participate. Geetham had been real fun place to hang out(online). I ve vistied other tamil sites too adhu ennavo theriyalai GEETHAM LA IRUKARA ANDHA EERPU(ATTRACTION) VERA EDHULEYUM ILLAI(ENNAKKU). Let me complete with this and :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: to everyone supporting GEETHAM.

It is not.. Typing tamil in english keyboard is tough..

Even then, in most expressive instances, u still see people typing in tamil.. So this is not something that we really need to be shameful for.. However, there are things in our life which we need to be shameful :(

Nice to see the history and geography of geetham..

As such my experience in geetham.. I was never too much interested in movies and I liked the forum for discusson as ever.. Whenever I dont come here, I really feel that I miss something..

Hmmmm! Those days!! Initially when I came in 2003, I also had the same questions about active membership and suggestions. But I was pulled into conversations with Sweetie and Sri_gan. Then Shy came along. It became a gala of fights. One post will go for one full page of the forum. Man!!!

Then came Lolly. Like a bundle of joy. I distinctly remember and enjoyed Lolly getting on the nerves of Sri initially by asking counter questions to every thing Sri said. They became so pally after that initial spat. It will be fun to read that topic even now, if it is around some where.

Even though many us have assumed names, I could see the shades of the beliefs of everyone which is the best part in Geetham. Though I dont know the physical names which is immaterial, I know who is who in the real world of Values. It is this which has kept the group of people intact and which is very different from other forums. This is what makes me visit Geetham everyday.

OK. Naan Geetham-ku vandha kathaiya sollattuma? It was my husband who became a user in Geetham. And he was just interested in downloading movies. Very rarely I also used to download some movies. Aana forums pakkam ellaam thalai vacchu kooda padutthathillai. Slowly I got interested in other forums also and I used to just visit, but will not reply. Ana sila movies ellaam active members-ku mattum-nu pottaanga. By reading Geetham rules I came to know that minimum of 100 posts is required to become an active members. So, becoming an active member was only my aim and slowly started communicating. I wanted to post just 100 posts and stop. Ana oru 50 posts potta vodane, slowly I came to know people here.

ItechLegend's history of entering Geetham,

actuala sollanum na, my sister is married and settled in japan,
she use to say tat she watches all new movies by downloading, enku romba kadupa irukum
then she came to india after a year on jan2005
it was tat time i purchased broadband account from bsnl.
so my sister who was a active member long before in geetham
gave me many sites to download movies and songs..
once such idea she gave was forums and first name she told me was geetham.net
so i created my account on 25th of feb 2005.
but since my entry to geetham i dint have any intention to download movies here.
also it was not available to me at tat time and even now.

aprum nal aga nal aga enku geetham romba pudichi pochu...
munna ellam post count increase panrarthukaagavey ethachum post pannitey irupen.
my first post was a poem in tamil .. athuku enku vantha first reply yaru koduthanga theriyuma.. nama priyanka than..

You are right Minik....There should be a celebration for Geetham on December 23.....when Geetham entered the world....The next 2 days we should celebrate for Christmas....So we shall wait and see what Geetham decides....

I missed the celebration friends....Was there any celebration in geetham at that time...pls any 1 reply me abt that

Oh yes :P We had organized for some event, though many didnt turn up. People from Australia, Hongkong and Europe couldnt make it and had to settle with just the webcast of the celebrations. :) Shy akka Lighted the 'Digital Kuththuvilakku' and Pattams cut the Ribbon. Anitam broke the PCs as usual ( :sm20: ) while Teena served hot idiappam and Sukku Coffee to the attendees. Vasan did a quick number from MJ's 'Blood on the dance floor' and GCB sang an old BoneyM number. :dance:

ah...ah...ah.....just read these posts....Geetham was registered on the day I and Sruti got married :P enna porutham entha porutham :P

Naan first Canada thaniya vantha pothu....as always was looking for a website to download movies and download carnatic stuffs; so first joined on 7th Jan 2005. At first I was able to download some movies but I did not put any posts. I was hesitating to post here first of all. Then some actvie members stuff came up and I was not able to download any movies; that was disappointing for me. But only now I have understood why the active member part is so important to make people participate more and make friendship. Now I have so many friends. Now again comeing to my story in Geetham - I began my post from the carnatic section as I am a trained carnatic singer and also have a HUGE database of carnatic stuffs. I started to share my treasures and get some trasures from Bhuvana, rasikan.....

I became just curious to see what people talk in other threads so started to post and slowly got addicted to it..........Oh man! its a wounderful site........I can't describe it in words; we should first thank the mods who made the site morethen just a downloading platform as other websites normally do. The active member system has really worked in making people to participate and slowly get into friendship with many people. Its a brilliant idea!!

After I came back from vacation from India with my wife I told her abt Geetham and she also joined it and now we both are active members :P

hehe i too started off the same way, searching for carnatic songs all the way... :ee:
beginning i posted a hello in the new comers and got such a nice reception that i was really amazed, coz that dint happen in other forums. initially started in carnatic section, but now time constraints, i just go to recent topics and select red ones :ee:

i dont visit cinema section. :) not interested in movies generally.

In my case, this was a true accident. I happened to be looking for some MSSubbulakshmi songs - specifically Vishnu Sahasranamam. I never got a good version of that. But I found Geetham.net instead.

This was about a week or two ago. In spite of myself, I am being drawn more and more to this forum. Why? No idea.

As I have mentioned elsewhere, I have been on the Net since before HTTP became synonymous with the Net. Those days, the usenet newsgroups and bulletin boards that existed were fantastic! These were the days BEFORE spam and bots that would simply send advertisements to these newsgroups.

The next stop for me was Rediff.com with its chat rooms. That is where i draw my moniccker from (Indian was the chatter at rediff.com). One group that I regularly post at is nukkad-list at www.mumbai-central.com. It is a close-knit group of people that chat about all things under the sun. We have some US haters and some lovers (guess where I fall?) and there are interminable conversations (threads) about this. This is not a forum like geetham.net. It is a list from a listserv. And if you have to ask what that is, you are still a kid on the Net ;-)

I am now satisfied with geetham.net - that I have got so many songs (all carnatic) from here, it'll keep me occupied for a while. Long live geetham.net and long live the people that administer it.

Sai (Indian Rediff)

P.S. And yes - Sai is my nick name.

Am a bad counter, I wanted to start the 5th digit here in this landmark thread of Geetham but missed by one. If not for Ponniyin Selvan and his Sixth Dimension story whom I knew through the then Tamilterra, I would've never heard of Geetham. Geetham is among first place I started using the forum styled community (have used listservs, TFMPage since I first experienced broadband in US) and felt comfortable with. Well its really the people here who've kept Geetham alive and its the reason I still have the motivation going after 2 years. Well cant really claim that as a big thing, there's an old man lives here for the 4th year, likes this place and willingly wastes time in it :ee:
