The Town of Odyssey Turns Four!

Postby Catspaw » Tue Mar 31, 2009 11:01 pm

Everyone,

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

When Shadowpaw debuted this wonderful board that he created four years ago, I'm sure he never expected it to still be so popular and growing four years later! (Well, maybe he did, but the rest of us would have said he was crazy!) ;) It's wonderful to see that there are still so many loyal ToOers, both those who joined four years ago today and the many more who have joined since then.

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! Click here to see the thread that has all the stages leading up to the glorious anniversary finale! \:D/

Another special anniversary treat involves thoughts from a few members who agreed to either write out or record their thoughts about the ToO! :D

Kairi wrote the following lovely message:

Kairi wrote:As the ToO celebrates its 4th anniversary, I'd like to share some memories of my time here on the Town of Odyssey. When I first encountered the ToO, I was actually a bit cautious (and for good reason, one look at the current story arc and I was confused for life ;))! I joined just in time for the Regis Blackgaard story arc, in which I happily participated. A few months after the story arc ended, I began to delve into the world of role-playing and became a Doyle. Although the clan is mostly inactive now, I have fun memories of role-playing (and learning the art of role-playing) with my fellow "family members." Participating in the political process here on the ToO has been an enlightening experience. I've met many friends on the ToO, and I hope I will be able to keep. I don't think that I will ever forget the ToO when I grow up. This has been a place where I have learned important life lessons. So, as the ToO enters what should be another year of randomness, AIO discussion, and insanity, I wish the Town of Odyssey a happy 4th birthday! \:D/


There are also splendiferous recorded messages from Sonuna, Regis Blackbeard/Troy Bolton, The Top Crusader, myself, and, oddly enough, Rodney Rathbone! :shock: Click on the name for the listening link. Thanks to Trent to helping me out with the links - he is more than kind to my poor dial-up ridden self! For those of you eager beavers who are viewing this message right away, my link will be available shortly, and a few more might be on their way throughout the day.

This thread is a great place to post your own thoughts on the ToO, such as favourite memories, people you wish were still around, people you're glad to have around, or anything else! :D If anybody would like to record their own anniversary message and post the link, that would be wonderful! Just a reminder to check with your parents first, since some parents might not want their child's voice broadcasted across the internet. :)

Thanks to all for being part of the ToO's special day! :D Enjoy the fun things that will be happening throughout the day! \:D/

FROM WHEN THE WEBSITE WAS STARTED TO INTO THE FUTURE

ZOMG SONUNA. :highfive:

[/flail]

Anyway. It's great that I get to be around on the fourth anniversary of this prodigious website. This November I'll have been around for FOUR YEARS. And really, that's such a terribly long time.

Some of you users have seen me grow up a bit, and others have grown up more visibly. Either way, you're all splendiferous people and should continue in l33tness from now on evermore. From when the website was started to into the future.

Four years. Perhaps we should have a special subforum built for this momentous occasion!

Happy birthday, Town of Odyssey! \:D/ It's been a pleasure knowing you for the last three years!

Haha, loved the recordings! I think that was my first time hearing Top's voice (:eek:), and Catspaw, I was very disappointed when you talked about the future of the ToO without saying "the best is yet to come"! :x

I recorded a little ditty (except not) in honor of the occasion. It's in yousendit form (the only way I could figure out how to post it myself), so if you'd rather not download it... :shrugs: Enjoy!
I love the \:D/ smiley
