The ToO Turns Seven!

Post by Catspaw »

Everyone,

I am pleased to announce that the ToO has offically turned seven! \:D/

It's hard to believe that it has been so long since Shadowpaw started this amazing board! If you're interested, The Top Crusader posted a thread that will provide some background for the start of the ToO (click here). There have been a lot of great memories over the years, with new ones still being created.


The statistics below prove that there are a lot of dedicated ToOers who love to post! \:D/

Thanks to Dan for providing a special anniversary surprise! Click here to see the thread that contains all the images of the construction process. Don't let the smileys down after all their hard work - go take a look! I think that the final product is especially delightful this year! \:D/

LOVE it! Nice work Dan! \:D/

Who am I? I'd rather not answer that question, the real question is, "Who are you?". Right now I am trying to think of something witty to put here.. I might not find anything, but that's fine. This block of text should be fine for a signature. Wait, are you still reading this? Why are you reading this? Stop. Seriously.
STOP.
This sentence is true.
The sentence above is false.

I dare you not to read this.
Hey! I said not to read this.
Maybe if I talk like this.
Wait, you still see me? *sighs* I give up.

I think this is my favourite ever of Dan's anniversary surprises! \:D/ I love how EB's hair has his name on the back of it! :lol: I saw the hair first and then the name, but for those of us who have ever seen a picture of him, no additional info was needed! ;)

\:D/ I'm so glad my brother found CBH's forum and met SNC who sent him to ToO, and he, in return sent me. Or something to that effect.

Dan, you did manage to fit, 'Odyssey' in there! \:D/ Looks great. ^_^

Happy birthday everyone \:D/

I love how all those black kids segregated themselves in the center. :anxious:



Dan, that photo is amazing. It is the best one I've ever seen. Epic, sleek, nostalgic. Happy birthday, ToO.

I just looked at all of the monuments the other day and I agree with Catspaw that this one is my favorite (see I spelled it right :lol:) one yet.
