    Welcome, @Agent7777 - Great selections of films there! Sadly I just missed GE at the cinemas.

    How do you pronounce your name?

    Here, you must say it the poker way:

    "Two pair."

    How do you pronounce your name?

    Seventy-seven seventy-seven?

    Seven thousand seven hundred and seventy-seven?

    Seven seven seven seven?

    Or quadruple seven?

    Feel free to call me Quad Seven...

    @Agent7777 - I take it your username is a reference to the Fleming YOLT novel where Bond goes under the 7777 number (if I'm remembering correctly)?

    Spot on @Dragonpol , wondered how long before someone would mention it. 10 out of 10 for observation ;)

    In that case I'm happy to have noticed it! YOLT is one of my favourite Fleming James Bond novels. You'll soon see that I'm most into the literary side of Bond on this community. :)

    Twice is the only way to read.

    I'm just re-posting from AJB007 , If anyone could help AndrewBond.

    "Is there anyone here who is also a member of the MI6 Community forum? If so, would you be able to help - I’ve tried creating a login on that forum, but I don’t receive any confirmation emails to verify my address, thus am not able to participate. I tried creating a second login using a different email address (and provider - one iCloud and one Gmail) in case there was a conflict with iCloud, but again no confirmation emails to that address either.

    I can’t seem to find a way of contacting MI6 Community to make them aware of this issue (no email address, I did find an online web form but have had no response using that - maybe more email issues on their side?) so wonder if anyone could post a message there asking them to check if their email verification system is working as it should? Thanks in advance."

    Not quite new, used to be here under a different name but stopped coming when I got into an argument about Idris Elba playing Bond (for the record, I have no problem with the idea. Only a film at the end of the day innit?)

    Hello MI6 Community, Max The Parrot here (no I’m not really called Max and no, my doctor certifies I’m not a parrot). Bond fan since the fairly early days of the 70s watching Bond films on ITV as a kid. First film I saw at the cinema was Moonraker and it’s still my favourite (although LALD, TSWLM and even TMWTGG sneak into that spot after consumption of varying amounts of alcohol). Looking forward to reading and (maybe, if I can think of something mildly intelligent to say) contributing to the community while we all wait patiently for NTTD. 🍻

    Much appreciated Thunderfinger, to paraphrase the great JW Pepper, I hope there’s a cage strong enough to hold an animal like me! 👍

    @Max_The_Parrot
    I’m impressed with your unabashed favoring of early Roger. Those were the most exciting times to be a young Bond fan, in my mind.

    Thank you @Birdleson , yes those 4 Roger films in particular are the ones I find most fun. It’s great we have a wide range of tones to the different Bond movies, but I do love watching escapist, popcorn Bond the best!

    Welcome @Max_The_Parrot. I too grew up with Roger as " My Bond " in the Cinema.

    Welcome, @Max_The_Parrot! You'll fit right in with the rest of us, booboos.

    What? Nobody told you?

    Yeah, this is an insane asylum, run by @Thunderfinger. Here's me (left) and @Thunderpussy (right).

    Welcome aboard, @Max_The_Parrot! You'll certainly find plenty of [Bond] nuts here. Well, they're nuts anyway. ;)

    Thanks @Thunderpussy (here’s to ‘keeping the British end up!’), @DarthDimi and @Dragonpol for your welcomes! Clearly Dr Warmflash is going to have her work cut out evaluating you lot! 😝
