2 year anniversary extravaganza party special!
« on: September 21, 2009, 02:35:22 PM »
Wow, 2 years already? It seems like just yesterday that I made this place (okay, not really). We've been through a lot of controversy and other unpleasant events. Several raids (none of them very good, I might add), a domain theft, Vaatixganon's sudden departure...the list goes on. What matters is that we pushed through those obstacles and kept going, and I don't see us dying anytime soon. We've had some rough moments where activity dropped sharply for one reason or another, but we've always bounced back. We've also lost several features, unfortunately, namely the Arcade and NFES. They might actually be returning soon...sooner than you may think. This year, we're doing things a little bit differently. In addition to my boring, drawn-out speech in text form, I'll be doing it in podcast form too. This is the official launch of our podcast series, and we plan to keep it going.
tl;dr Yay us!

oh boy podcasts

Alright, I'm going to make an actual post here.

Fuck, I love this place. Seriously. I was permabanned and I still came back. Doesn't that say something? I can't live without this place. Too many good friends here, this forum really won't die. If Silver wanders off with Snorkel to Ukraine, one of us will make our own poopty IBPFree forum and get everyone we can there. It's not our features, it's not our "home page", it's our god darned community that keeps us alive. I can guarantee you, at least half of our active members sincerely care about this place (and those who do probably actually checked the bulletin board and saw the thread), and that's enough to keep a forum going. Despite our chat really being more active than the forum, who the intercourse  cares? We don't need a mass amount of members, really. Look at NS2. We don't need more than we have. Would it be nice? Sure it would. Is it needed? No. We're fine the way we are. nsfcd.com might die one day in the future, but NSF won't die. It won't ever die. As long as we have contact, be it IRC, this forum, or some other forum, we'll be together. We're too close to part now.

But, be on your toes. CONSTANT VIGILANCE

Being the pessimistic poop hole that I am, I am surprised that we made it this far. A certain points, I was sure that the forum would die a quiet death. I guess this tight-knit community that we have shows that we're a forum of friendships, and not a forum of endless spamming. (Well, perhaps both. But it works this way, I guess).

I haven't been a staff member since the beginning, but darn, I feel like it's been a long-ass time.

Shit.

Here's to another two years, ninnyes.

I honestly don't think we'll live to see our 3rd anniversary. I say this for one reason - you, the community, seems unwilling to take matters into your own hands, initiative. Instead of posting in topics, discussing current events, or utilizing the features and events we work on, you choose to moan, ninny, moan, whine, and ninny some more. It's one of the most frustrating things imaginable. But, I keep coming back for more, so you must be doing something right.

Happy Birthday.

HAPPY TWO YEARS.

I didn't know this place has only been around for two years. It make me feel like I came close to the beginning. Anyway, I'm excited about the podcast, and I'm sure we can make it to three years. I'm here to help try, at least.
I get obsessively manic over things. It's a problem.

Oh, and sorry for the boring podcast. I couldn't think of anything else to say to make it exciting. :(

You sure have the right face for podcasts Silver.
Happy 2 years! Woo~
I am also surprised this has survived for as long as it has, it doesn't seem to be dying anymore, just still hanging on by that last little leg hair.

Ah Mack the optimistic.

ohai. Yeah, I'm still here. I really am liking this place, so I hope you don't mind if I crash a little bit. I mean come on, this IS the only forum that I've gotten over 1k posts, so that means something to me at least.

Happy two years and I hope that this goes on forever (or until we can all get drunk and have a mass goodbye party with cameras :P)

Oh Vesperia, never change... never change

It's hard to believe it's been two years already. It seems like just yesterday I was reading the notice about Oldsider closing and wondering what the hell I was going to do.
Then there was MF's disaster of a forum, which came down in a week or so thanks in no small part to me pissing him the intercourse  off.
Then there was this place. I honestly didn't think this place was going to last that long, and realizing that it's been two whole years is kind of a shock.
It's a good shock, though. And I'm sure it'll happen many more times as each year you guys keep coming back.

My my.
My pessimism is proven wrong. Keep doing that. No, really, keep doing that.
Like Super, I thought there were many times NSF was about to die. But no, we bounce back somehow. Someway. I don't give a poop how, but intercourse , am I glad it happens.
Happy two years. May the forum live for another. Even if it dies, #Nsider isn't going anywhere. That place is too special.
