Today is the 9th anniversary of myArmoury's forums. Though the articles and Nathan's collection predated the forums, we kind of see this as the site's birthday, as it launched a new era for us.

It's fun to be a part of this and I'd like to thank Nathan for putting it together, running it, and funding so much of it (hey, there's a fund drive going on right now--ease his burden Happy ). I'd also like to thank my fellow team members for their help and camaraderie.

But without our loyal readers, we'd be nowhere. I'd like to thank our readers for their questions and answers, their appreciation for the style and tone we try to set, and for the general mature nature of the discussions here.

Here's to 9 more. Happy

Happy

Congratulations to Nathan and the moderators who keep this place a very special place with quality information and a friendly and professional place to learn and enjoy.

I stumbled on this site a few months after it opened the Forums and " Lurked " for approximately 6 months before joining in the conversations, also made some good friends here and learned a great deal over 8 1/2 years, and hardly a day goes by that I don't learn something new here. Big Grin Cool

More evidence that the years can fly past while you blink. It all seems like it just started yesterday. Congrats and its been a well done run!

Thank you for posting this, Chad, and for those who have commented. I get a nice little reminder a few weeks out to tell me of our anniversary. I didn't, however, put much thought into it representing nine years doing this. That's a long time and quite a surprise, to say the least. Wow.
