The Town of Odyssey Turns Fifteen!

Postby Catspaw » Wed Apr 01, 2020 8:13 pm

Everyone,

I am pleased to announce that the ToO has officially turned fifteen! \:D/ It is amazing and wonderful that this site is still here after all these years! I fondly recall the very first April 1, logging online to check out Shadowpaw's advertised surprise, only to discover the best message board of all time awaiting me! Good times. I was just thinking about this the other day - me sitting in my college dorm room, wanting to check in to see the surprise (that ended up being the ToO) but having to wait because my college was having a weekend to have interested high school students stay overnight and my sister and a friend were staying with me. They didn't know that they were holding me back from my destiny. ;)

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/

Sorry for the delay in getting this thread up. I was having internet issues earlier and it was driving me crazy watching pages half load and then stop. :mad: Lucky for me, it's a short trip. ;)

We have made it to another year.

And I'm happy to say I've been a part of this board for 12 of those years. =)

I know! It just isn't the same without the daily reveal of what the surprise present was going to be that year. :(

Belated happy birthday, ToO!! Woot! I've been a member all but 1 day of those 15 years. :D I'm ancient.

Barely come around much anymore...because...3 toddlers will wreck your free time. :P Imagine that.
But I have many good memories of this place, even if I don't get to post much anymore.

I'm so late! (But what else is new?)

This community changed my life for the better. People were welcoming, energetic, smart, and I loved that. I drifted away over the years, mostly with college and all that, but the experiences I had here have instilled in me a desire to treat people right, to share my passions with like-minded folks, and to love on people whether they deserve it or not. In particular, to those of you who have been around for awhile and remember me, know that I can't thank you enough.
It's been awhile, hasn't it?
