“Life isn't a matter of milestones but of moments” - Rose F. Kennedy
Night-time super-hero and day-time news crew member El Duque finishes tagging and sprucing up a story about a video review of United Frenzy and Rumble. He clicks the submit button, and tada, Seibertron.com has reached one of it's greatest milestones, 20,000 news posts!
It's amazing to think that back when Seibertron.com was born, we were just a very a small fish in a big sea. Fast forward over 10 years, and this site has been blessed with so much, that's it's nigh impossible to explain it in words. I wouldn't believe anyone who would have told me 10 years ago that our community would be hooked on video reviews of grown men fiddling with toys, that we'd be getting incarnations of Rumble and Frenzy left, right and center, that Transformers would be turned into a live-action trilogy, and that toy collectors around the world would be knee-deep in toy line after toy line of Transformers.
Despite the good times, the bad times, and everything in between, we wouldn't even be close to putting up 20,000 news posts if it weren't for you guys! To every single member of the forums, our wonderful sponsors, and the hard working people behind the Transformers scenes, we salute you. Seibertron.com would like to thank everyone on the news crew, past and present, who have helped to contribute to this phenomenal milestone. Over 94 different members over the past 10 years have helped contribute to this total! And of course, you guys should certainly thank the rest of my current colleagues on the news staff for keeping this site alive and breathing! We salute Down_Shift, Razorclaw0000, RodimusConvoy13, Nekoman, Diem, El Duque, Dead Metal, DevastaTTor, Mach, Lost_Cybertronian, TCracker, and tigertracks_24!
Of course, like Rose F. Kennedy said in the quote above, it's about celebrating the moments, not always the milestone itself! Can you recall what your favorite Seibertron.com news post was? Which story was the first one you read on the site?
