Showing Stocking Tops is 10 years old today!

Enormous thanks to our wonderful mods who keep the place neat and tidy, we'd be lost without you guys. We run this site for the love of it - no adverts, no fees, no wages - so please be good to them. Smile

Huge thanks also to our regular posters. We have no way of rewarding them so they too do it out of the kindness of their hearts and the love of sharing. We hope you'll follow their lead and try to contribute to the board to help keep it active and interesting.

Finally, a brief history of the site for our newer members. Originally there was a forum called Showing Stocking Tops hosted at proboards.com where most of the original users here used to hang out. Proboards was a site where you could start your own forum and they'd host it for you but they were very strict on any remotely adult material and one day they simply deleted it with no explanation. Myself, Lambo, Borneo, Iggygor, Keane2c and a few others (sorry to have forgotten your names but you do matter) were heartbroken and quickly got together to open a new place that we could call home and fill with stocking-clad ladies. I had a web hosting package so I set this board up while the others went searching for other members of the original site and putting the word out that we were live again.

About a year after we started I was contacted by someone complaining about some of the pictures being marked as owned by other people and others that were owned by major web ladies whom he claimed to represent. He threatened to shut us down for copyright infringement so I fought him off in the background while a few of our regulars stepped up, were promoted to moderator status, and went to work cleaning up the board of anything that could be identified as belonging to someone other than the poster - hence the rule that we don't allow photos with any kind of marking unless they are owned by the poster him/herself.

Not long after that we had to deal with complaints by several of the ladies at StockingsHQ whose pictures had been posted here (despite not being marked with any kind of ownership) so we did our best to remove them as many of us were members there and didn't want to fall out with them.

Since then our fantastic mods have done an amazing job of keeping the place legal and problem-free. I was stressed out from having to resolve these problems while also dealing with some domestic issues and pulled back from being actively involved but I still call regularly, ensure that the board is kept up and running, and thankfully everything has run smoothly ever since.

So thanks again everyone, this is a lovely, friendly place to visit and that's all down to you. Please try to join in by posting and thanking the posters if you don't already, please be patient with the mods, and please keep visiting us.

All the best,
Simon.
