goodbye tour forum...

well, it looks like the tour forum has finally been closed.

it was probably a tough decision, but the mods had to take it. there's a time for everything, and the tour forum had become obsolete.

however, since most interferencers had a good time browsing and posting in that forum, i'd say the tour forum deserves a nostalgic thank you thread. so let's look back on the finest moments in the history of the tour forum, guys. post links to threads and posts here that you will never ever forget for the rest of your life.
