Everyone,

I am pleased to announce that the ToO has officially turned ten! \:D/

It has been ten years since Shadowpaw started this amazing board! Every year it gets more unbelievable that the ToO has been around for so many years. One whole decade of posting is a huge milestone, with some members having been active through that entire time. Join me in celebrating ten amazing years of ToO-ification of the internet! They have all been filled with awesomeness. :yes: As Shadowpaw just posted (click here if you haven't seen it yet) not all things remain the same, and yet they still do in the ways that count. I still remember the excitement leading up to the opening of the ToO. I had no idea what was going to be revealed on April 1, 2005, but I knew that it was going to be great! I wanted to stay up late and see what would be revealed, but I was living in dorm at college at the time and it was a weekend where visitors could come check things out, and my sister and a friend were sleeping in my room, and I really couldn't justify staying up. Early the next morning I couldn't resist checking things out and of course I had to join right away, but a little piece of me still wishes that I had stayed up and got to be one of those very first few members to join. There are a ton of good memories (and a few others...) ;) associated with the ToO for me.

The statistics below prove that there are a lot of dedicated ToOers who love to post, even if we're not quite as busy as we were that first year! \:D/

Good job, Woody. *pats*

10 years is pretty amazing... and even cooler that I've been here for 7 of those years. \:D/

There was an interactive display in the museum that started asking me inappropriate questions. :(

Nice Museum, Dan!

I didn't realize the ToO was anywhere near ten years.
I didn't realize I had been here over half of the ten years.
Everything is so old, all of a sudden. o.O

Happy birthday, ToO! ^_^ Thanks for the memories.

Only ten years? I feel like it's been more since I've been here for more than five, right at the end of an era, right before the relaunch started, so I fell in the floating midbie stage and can fluctuate both ways \:D/

Congratulations, peeps.

The um... Few months (maybe it has been a year. I don't know) that I've been here have been great. :p But this is a an amazing and special forum. I really don't get on the forum or the chat very often but I have had amazing memories in both places.
