I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our brilliant community and volunteer staff for all your efforts over the last 23 months. Next month, /gg FTW will turn two years old but we've passed an important milestone ahead of that celebration. Many times credit is given to our staff who works tirelessly to give our community the best experience on the Internet. While I don't want to slight this in the least -- this team of talented people work hard and deserve special recognition -- I want to ensure another important group doesn't get overlooked.
That group is you -- the site's community. You are the team that tells your friends about us, rallies your guild to our guild forum sections, shares your expertise on our MMO wikis, gives us a peak at your lives through our community blogs, holds games and publishers accountable through our rating system, and brings lively discussion to our forums. Without you, our great community site would be nothing more than some PHP files occupying space on someone's server. We've come a long way in two years and I don't want to downplay that celebration by listing all our accomplishments here but know that we couldn't have done it without you.
On that note, I'd like to give a special thanks to our staff, guild moderators, donors, and VIPs as well. Our staff -- including the administrators -- works completely on a volunteer basis. The guild moderators help bring new people to the site and take some of the moderation burden off the staff by policing their guild sections. Our donors have kept the site afloat during our many money crises over the last two years, and our VIPs have contributed significantly to our wikis and other site areas.
Thank you all and I look forward to reaching the 2 million mark with everyone!
