Happy Birthday MW! 10th Anniversary!

Recommended Posts

Wow-I can't believe it. 10 years since we went live on December 1st, 1999! Today we turn 10!

What started out out as a small Macross model website has grown into one of the largest Macross Communities around. I cannot thank all of you enough for your support through the years. Its been an incredible ride!

In 2010 we have a lot of great things coming ahead. The main site redesign, which has taken forever to implement(sorry!), has been going slow, but well.

We will be going live very soon! (the original site will still always be available). Features include new searchable data, and more helpful categorization, which should really help organize all the data we have. We have at least as many new items NOT on the main site today, ready to be scanned and uploaded.

All I can say is I hope we can be around with all of you for another 10 years!!

Go Macross!!

Shawn

Thanks Shawn and Graham and to all the members here.

This was my very first internet forum and is the one that I attend most frequently. It has been a blast!

I am also really happy to hear that the main site will be updated! That is great!

Thanks again!

Happy Birthday MW. funny that I am here in Shanghai having my wedding pictures done. They let me play with the computer while my wife gets dolled up. Definitely an important day for MW. I am thankful for MW being around as long asit has been. I am sure my wife hates this site as it started my valkaholism. :) She's a trooper. She bought me the 1/60 VF-1D for xmas and my b-day. I hope MW keeps going on for many years. I met many great ppl here and some of my good friends are on here. I hope to have my kids be on here for it's 30th anniversary...

Thanks to Shawn and Graham who have started 10 years ago what is to grow into probably THE premier English site to discuss all things Macross! Congratulations MacrossWorld!

You stole ten years of my life!!:p

Seriously, this site is amazing, and shows how much good sense and camaraderie Macross fans had.

Shame many of the original members have moved on, though. Many things for me have changed since I was fresh out of high school when MW went online, but my interest in Macross (though it fluctuated often) never waned, and despite sporadic periods of absence, I always came back to MW.

Thanks to Shawn, Graham and the mods for their hard work.

People keep referring to MW as "one of the best sites" or "the best English-language site", but it's not. It's the best Macross site in the world, no question about that. I really feel Japanese fans are not as passionate (or maybe just not as close-knit) as our international community (at least, not right now in 2009, can't speak for the '80s).

Congratulations and may the site continue to prosper.

my Congratulations, gratitude, and awe to all responsible for keeping this place one of the best websites/forums i know.

(for all we know it may be comparable to keeping an entire Macross Island alive in space with everybody's diversity making everything endlessly interesting!)

cheers to the future!

Damn, 10 years already?! I wasn't one of the first few members but I remember the first couple of years and reading posts about the first couple of MWcons. Geez, the first MW con I went to was the 3rd....holy crap time flies.

It's great to be part of something that has such a cool group of people, and who all enjoy much the same things. Thanks to all who keep the site running, this is a great place to keep us all connected. Happy B-Day MacrossWorld, and onward to the next 10, DECULTURE!!!

Happy birthday indeed! Several years ago, (circa 2001) I used the website to track down Macross models I couldn't remember details about not to mention upcoming goodies. Having to set aside collecting for many years, I was very pleased to see MW still here when I joined to forums in early 08. Here's lookin to 15 :)

Wow, 10 years already. Time sure does fly.

A big 'thank you', right back at our members. Without you all here, MW wouldn't be the great community that it is.

Definitely looking forward to the next 10 years and hope that one of these days I'll be less busy and actually have time to start writting reviews again! :wacko:
