Happy Birthday Warhammer-Empire.com!
« on: June 01, 2007, 07:58:12 PM »


Four years ago today on June First the forums were officially opened by Grutch and Bugman. Our little community has grown exuberantly since this time, and we now boast over 4450 members and nearly 180 000 posts (a number which I expect we will surpass sometime today).

As I am sure all of our regular visitors and members are aware in the past few months there has been lots of work done recently on the site to improve its look and functionality. Today we invite you to try out a returning feature of the site; a bit of a birthday treat, our new gallery! Please feel free to use it to upload images of your empire troops and share them with the community. The gallery accounts are linked to your forum account so it should be easy to use if you are already a member, and if you are not, why not use this as an opportunity to register?

I would also like to draw your attention to our new conversion contest being run in the Brush and Pallet. This contest involves building your own war altar.

Finally I would like to thank all of our wonderful members for making this site quite simply one of the best and friendliest in the entire web!

Hip hip…!

...HOOOORAY!

(I always wanted to write in capitals on this forum!)

Happy Birthday! Thanks go to all involved in the festivities:

- those who clean up the rooms from the garbage that gets sometimes thrown in;
- the doorstoppers with the omnipotent Mace of Modship;
- our busy chaperons;
- mommy Calvin who has prepared the cake for this day (= the gallery);
- all the cool kids here  :icon_cool:

It's a great place to be!

The gallery link at the top of the page should be made to go into the new gallery.
