Yay my account is over 13 years old! heheh


The fact that no one else has noticed so far would be awesome if 1) it was intentional and not because I fail at math and 2) GDnet's bday coincided with April Fools

Alas neither are true so therefore I am an idiot and the site is actually 14 years old

Arf.. I noticed as well, mostly because my account dates from Dec 2001 and I'd been kicking around for about a year before hand... dry.png

Wait, I thought GameDev's birthday is January 1st?

 

Been here nearly eight years.

 

Nope.. June 15th.. it was going to be June 1st but we had to push back the launch a bit.   Remember, it was a bunch of our smaller sites all joining together to pool resources and create a better community.  =)

I'm confused. Is it June 15th or April 1st?

It's always been June 15th!  =)   When we went live Dave compared it favorably to the birth of his first child.. I excitedly said "Really Dave?"   His deadpan response.. "No.. not really, but this is still pretty awesome"   So there you have it!   It's just amazing that we've been around so damn long.   I'm not certain what the future holds but I always hope we can go down some path to make us a better place for game devs.

Well someone can make it and have the community maintain it. You have an army of programmers at your disposal you know biggrin.png

 

On-topic: Is there a theme for GD.net's birthday? Contest? Prizes? Make Cornstalks Overlord for a day? Bring back the Javascript Floating Wheel of Text Death?

Happy Birthday, GD.net!

Though I haven't been around long or been as social as I have been recently, I have read many articles and threads that contain very useful information and have helped me learn some excellent things! I love this site! :)

Here's to at least 14 more, very happy years! *raises beer*
