Post subject:  The ToO Turns Eight!

Everyone,

I am pleased to announce that the ToO has offically turned eight! \:D/

It's hard to believe that it has been so long since Shadowpaw started this amazing board! Every year it gets more unbelievable that the ToO has been around for even longer, and there are still "old" members who joined the first day and "new" members who will hopefully be amazed at the ninth and tenth and eleventh and... (well, you get the picture) ;) anniversaries!


The statistics below prove that there are a lot of dedicated ToOers who love to post! \:D/

Thanks to Dan for providing a special anniversary surprise once again! Click here to see the thread that contains all the images of the construction process. Don't let the smileys down after all their hard work - go take a look! Dan's creativity shines once again this year!

I'm including Dan's description in the spoiler tag below. Try to figure it out for yourself first! \:D/

It's a sculpture. If you tilt your head to the left, it looks like an 8, standing for 8 years of the ToO, and if you tilt to the right, it looks like the symbol for infinity, standing for the ToO lasting forever.


And a lovely bonus - a close-up of the plaques!

It sure doesn't seem like it's been around this long, or that I've been talking to some of you that long (or longer, from the chat), or that I've come up with 8 different giant presents. :-

I think, at 8 years old, the ToO can officially be called old. Especially in forum years.

Truly, eight years by Internet standards is an incredible achievement. \:D/ Thanks for commemorating the anniversary, Dan!

I wouldn't have gotten that without the description. Very cool. Did Dan make the plaques too?

And Happy Birthday ToO! Never thought about it lasting as long as it has.

Yes, I made the plaques too, and they almost took more time than the monument. I also only finished that picture at 10:30 on March 31st. :anxious: I'm thinking of making another plaque with the names of the moderators, which will be a ton of names.
