Cool Animeboards.com - 9th Birthday!

June 24, 2000 was when Animeboards.com first came online. Now Animeboards.com today celebrates it's 9th birthday. Yes that's 9yrs ! I think some members here probably have their own children old enough to watch Anime

As with last years birthday announcement, this birthday celebration again starts with Animeboards.com sporting a new style for the forums (yes again the forum logo isn't really up to par ). This style isn't set in stone and may change in future

I've also upgrade the forum software to latest vBulletin version as well so take your time to check out the new forum upgrades.

What's happening ?
With free time permitting, I'll also be doing further reorganisation of the forum structure and archiving less used forums and creating more popular anime series forums. Best place for you folks to provide suggestions in regards to this matter would be by posting in Contact Admin/Mod forum - while you may not get a reply/immediate reply from me, rest assured I do read posts for that forum (i'm subscribed to to so get email notifications )

Changing email addresses:
Remember, if you do change your email address, change it to an approved (non-free email address) and make sure to check your new email address for the activation url code so you can re-activate your account. Otherwise, you won't be able to post on the forums until you re-activate your account.

New and Old Members:
Don't forget about the forum rules and registration guidelines for visitors wanting to join these forums.
  1. Registration Rules
  2. Forum Rules

So to all the old and new members of Animeboards.com, thanks for sticking it out on AB


Your admin

George

I lol at that but it's true. As others now have children who can do that, I just graduated from high school a month back.

Happy 9th birthday AnimeBoards and I wish this boards will remain a safe and fun place for all anime fans to discuss and have fun throughout the year! ^^

It's been so long! This place was the first online community I joined when I got my new laptop in middle school. The community was great, and it just wasn't the same anywhere else after this..

Happy Birthday Animeboards!!!!!!

Happy Birthday Animeboards!

I like the new look. Very modern for some reason. I knew you were probably in the background working on the restructure/updates. I'm glad you're still there for the community, no matter how idiotic we get.
Here's to George and Animeboards.com for another 9 years

Eva2k, you have done a stellar job in improving the layout of AnimeBoards - a truly wonderful work of art. I cannot imagine a finer way to celebrate 9 glorious years of existence.

Eva2k's put his heart and soul into this messageboard, so it would only be right if we all pitch in and start posting more regularly. I think it would be a tragedy if after all of Eva2k's hard work, we only stop by to say "Happy Birthday!" once every year. The guy's poured bucket-loads of hard-earned cash into running this place and it is a small ask for us to post, say, at least once a week.

So how about it?

Happy Birthday AB! I think I say this every year, but it still seems like not long ago we were all back on the ezboard. Come to think of it, I was still in high school when this place started up.

Nearly a decade of Animeboards!? Why must I be constantly reminded of my age!?! GRAH!

Anyhow. Congratulations George on another year of keeping her going.

Nine year old. Old enough to ask awkward, rattling questions. Old enough to cost a great deal of money. Old enough to know better.

Happy Birthday, AB.
