HAAAAAAAAPPY BIRTHDAAAAAY!!

The forum is exactly one year old today! I can't really believe it, but it's true-- how this forum was created, on April Fool's Day, because I got tired of waiting for the admin of The Nice to accept my forum registration. And what a year it's been!

(now would be a good time to put on some dramatic music.)

In that year, we've seen:

• The creation of LOLHorse pictures in the Skin Horse forum, as well as the comic's triumphant joinance of GoComics! Uh, is joinance even a word?

• The release of the final Narbonic print volume, Volume 6. Wow. What a ride! The evil tees even reappeared.

• Forumwise, we survived the downtime as the upgrade to phpBB3 took hold. The forum is much shinier now.

• And of course, the past year chronicled the rise of the epic forum story, The Mad Scientist Wars! Starting from a few silly comments on the Skin Horse comic page, the story soon grew, becoming the genesis of this forum in the first place. Since then, the cast members have had to deal with conventions, conspiracies, and even a Martian Invasion!
The story became so successful that it spawned a spin-off of its own. The Mad Scientist Wars: The Second Battle, created in its own subforum right next to the Wars itself, is slowly growing, starting on its own rise to greatness.

What will the future hold for Comics by Shaenon II? I do not know, but I wish the board well. And good luck to all who come here as they see fit.

"....aaaand many more...."

Chic wheels out an enormous cake, with a big sparkling candle on top.
"Wait a minute-that's not my candle..." Grabs it, tosses it away-BOOM!!
Glares at Claire-"Blow something else up-don't dynamite my cake!"
Turns to the audiance-"And it's Mad Cake! Enough for everyone, and each slice becomes your favorite flavor! Who wants to be first?"

I'm impressed we've lasted this long, but after all-it is the most fun forum ever! GO US!!
Joins Sib-"aaaand many mooore"

Do you think I had the 1st idea what a squidhole was when I invented it? Certainly not! I was just messing about! That's when the very best & very Maddest Science gets done. I thought,Why, this alabaster octopus looks like it wants a nice transmission inside it,& fairly soon I had a thing that obviously had a Use, though what that Use could be was a total mystery.
(Sameness Engine) I haven't the 1st notion of what it's for! That's not why I made it-I made it for the sheer joy of making something new! It's getting up to tell me what it wants me to do, though, I can just feel it. It's been giggling a lot at night.

Claire: But it's a one-year birthday cake! Of course it would need one stick of dynamite in it. *grumbles* How can the forum blow the dynamite out if you take it off the cake?

Wow, I can't believe it's been around for a while year. Happy Birthday! And I hope the next year will be just as great. (and the year after that, and the year after that...)

It is the only place I can feel right at home with my fellow mad scientists. It is a lot fun here. And the comics, they are fun to read. I just wished I stumbled unto this much earlier.

Well, I can safely say that I'm going to be around for as long as there's a game...

And with that, goodbye forever. (April Fools!)

I think next year we should an awards nomination thing for the forum. Like "Most successful mad scientist" and "Keeper of the peace" or stuff like that.

Well you can be more creative with the awards. Maybe "favorite Moderator" works too. Heh it is just a suggestion.

... there's really nothing i can say to that that isn't sarcastic, I'm afraid. So instead I will simply say that I, personally, really want that picture Janetor did of Amino and Ingrid for Christmas on a T-shirt.

Andrew: And now we know why I wear my wallet on a chain. Only you keep stealing the chain.
