Happy birthday to AutomotiveForums.com!!
AF is now 1 full year old :D
Please send all presents to automotiveforums.com through PayPal ;) [joke]
In one mere year, this website has grown from nothing to something much much more than nothing. I have had many bitter problems throughout this year, but my dedication never went away, and I always fought for what I believed in. Looks like it has all paid off, and I want to thank everyone who has contributed to this website to make it what it is today. This thread will serve as 3 things:

-You can download The Anniversary Edition AF wallpapers, scroll down for links.
-Reflect on this past year, funny things [DVS and PM ;)], stupid things [AF Mascot], interesting things [The R35 GT-R rendering being posted here months before the release of the concept, being almost an identical match], and many many things. Just share your memories about anything that has happened with others here.
-If anyone has an idea for an interesting contest that we could run, please post it here, and allow it to be discussed. We can even make the prize money or a good gift, but depending on the level, we may ask you to donate money :D [what comes around goes around]. If we do, send it to automotiveforums.com via www.PayPal.com [not kidding this time :)]


Additionally, I would like to apologize to all who have been waiting for the AF T-Shirts -- they are not yet here :o But they will be soon. So start saving up... those.. uh... dollar bills.. :smoker2:

Now, post away!! Be merry!


Ooops, I almost forgot. I have a very long list of people that I need to thank, and if I write out every name, then I am sure I will unintenitionally forget someone, so that is not an option. But these people know who they are and I just want all of you to know that I appreciate what you have done for AutomotiveForums.com very much!

Eh.. this is getting late, mods: if I forgot to add something that I should have, feel free to do it for me :)

Now I can finally post my screenshot in the Screen Shots thread, since I've had access to the wallpapers for a while now ;)

I remember when I first joined up, I would come on for like 5 hours or more every day (not much has changed there), then finally Igor asked if I wanted to be a mod, to which I accepted. I remember when Jay (SilverS2000) first signed up, and me making fun of him for having an ECHO :D:D I love this place

...Happy birthday to you...

What he said! I've only been posting for a little less than a month, but I feel "at home" here. I've chatted with a lot of nice people. It has definitely been entertaining :)

May great things happen here for all of us....and a big thumbs up to you Igor for creating an awesome place to chill :)

One year already? Never seen a place go through such a roller-coaster ride in such a short period of time. Remember SCC and all? Wow. Anyways, it's great to have a place you can call your "home away from home while at home". Haha, I've had many wonderful shitefaced nights enjoyed here, and many of you probably have, as well. Ready for more? :ylsuper

first of all HAPPY BIRTHDAY AF! and i'd just like to thank igor for having patience with me when i kept bugging him to be a mod. through this site i've learned that some canadians are sorta cool and you've introduced me to the skyline and rally cars. you've also gotten me back into my old hobby of model cars. i hope i'm still around to see the 2nd anniversary!

this place sure has come a long way in a year. i remember when no one posted in the G20 forums at all. then all of a sudden G-Forces and g20.net came and the G20 forums are the biggest car forums on the site now. :D any ways nice job Igor. i guess ur pretty cool even though u didnt make me a mod but great job anywayz and a Happy Birthday to AF :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
