View Full Version : Happy Birthday, WarSeer!

There's a new story entry added:

Happy Birthday, WarSeer! (http://www.warseer.com//node/347)

So WarSeer is a year old. Sometimes I think it seems longer, other times it seems like just yesterday I started hacking away at the code for a new Games Workshop rumours site. But how did we get here? Well, that's a pretty long story and we'll probably have that covered in an article connected to WarSeer's history soon. For now I'd just like to thank our staff for their help with the site and forum, our guilders and advertisers for putting trust in our work and helping cover our costs and, of course, our visitors. Without them WarSeer wouldn't be here. In addition I'd like to thank "Rusted Engine Comics" for the awesome work and time they invested to get the freshly added comic section started. Here's their latest addition, a picture they prepared for WarSeer's first birthday:

I thought the birth of the Portent Temporary Forums was our official birthday? Oh well...

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to WarSeer,
Happy birthday to you!

EDIT: It seems that we share a birthday with Busta Rhymes, Cher, Jimmy Stewart and my older brother Matt.

About a year ago I joined to a new born forum (actually the resurrection of portent) after the mass destruction, and had a conversation with a friend of mine. He told me "portent is dead, it had a major crush and they couldn't backup their former files and everything is lost". Alas, I cannot say that I was a portent-er, just a reader those times. But these days, I can say that I was there the first time the thread "What should be the new name for the forum". I was there when the board colours where different from today. Anyways, I suppose I am the last to speak of the forum, after all I'm just a small pebble in this 40mm base (:P).

But on behlf of those people, who stay anonymus all this time, I would like to say:

Thank you Warseer. Here's to another 40.000 years.

Hang on, i signed up on the 18th of March 2005, the day after it restarted, so shouldn't that have been it's 1st Birthday?

We already celebrated that day, but Nick and Syllas didn't think it proper.

We decided that the best day to consider as the start of WarSeer was when we moved off the server in my bedroom onto our current server. I'm sure you'll all agree that this was the key moment in getting the site to the place it is now.


20-05-2006, 23:20
Yeah, yeah. Although we all enjoyed being in your bedroom with you.

What are these servers you speak of? I thought web pages grew naturally on the interweb, like mushrooms (or orks?).

Seriously, Happy Birthday Warseer, and thanks Nick and others for all your hard work. Give us a postal address and I will send you money...
