I just realized that today is my 10th year on the Neowin forums. I know my post count might be low for being here 10 years, but thinking back now to all the revisions of Neowin and all the great posts on this board, I am glad I stuck around. Here's to another 10 years!

My pleasure. This is the only forum online I ever stuck around to post on and it's amazing to see how the community has grown from the beginning and to what it is today. Thanks Neobond and the Neowin Team!

I'm not sure when I started up here. I know in 2002 I was recommending this place to a manager at work. I don't know when I made my first forums profile. I made it, then didn't check for a while and completely forgot what it was.

Oh wow, looks like today is 7 years for me.

Newbie. It'll be 11 years for me in less than two months. :p

Jokes aside, congratulations. (Y) To me Neowin is like a home on the internet. A social network of like-minded people from long before today's social networks existed.

This is the only forum I stuck with over the years, it's been a nice journey to see Neowin grew to where it is today!

By the way, when did Neowin debut as a website? I still have links to the MSN forums you had for when the site had an outage.

In October of 2000.
