Yes it's hard to believe but it is true. This Picture forum is celebrating it's 5th anniversary TODAY!!!!!!
It's still hard to believe that it's been 5 years since I first opened the forum, in the beginning it wasn't very big with just a few little sections and around 5 members. Then over the years it's grown and attracted many more new and interesting members.
It's really nice to still see many of our original members on the forum who all followed over from the Silver Rocket forums, and meeting all of our new members.
We are a nice and friendly Placebo forum and over our years of being online we have all been to some fantastic gigs and shared our experiences and also sharing our experiences of meeting the band themselves.
Over the past 5 years the forums have seen many changes as most of you will remember. Each one being bigger and better. We've also had some bad times like when we experienced the massiver server failure in 2006 where we lost all of our galleries and 70% of our posts & topics. With our strong team and fantastic members we managed to pull the forum back, and using my back-up's I managed to rescue some of our lost topics. Despite it taking many weeks of constant searching and pestering the server support we did it.
In March the main site Placebo Extreme celebrated 5 years of being online and like the forums it started out small with a few pages. The main site has also been a HUGE success, even once being the most viewed music website in China. Quite an achievement.
So now I would like to say a HUGE thankyou to all of our members on here for making this forum what it is, a fun, friendly Placebo forum that everyone can enjoy! Thankyou to you all.
