Default Happy Birthday Tree of Souls

Well, here we go. This is one year on, since ToS first opened.
We had been discussing it for a few days, but early in the morning of the 14th March (1:39am), ToS was first opened publicly, after a few days of discussion between a small group on IRC.

I know I speak for all of us when I say this last year has been beyond what I ever thought possible. ToS was founded out of a need, but it has become a rare place, somewhere almost unique. Those early days were hard at times, and I spent many nights without sleep, ToS was the first thing I thought of when I woke up and was on my mind when I did manage to get some sleep. Getting the forum together, creating the themes, and the various problems that were encountered in the early days, which are best left undisturbed now.
I can look back on our history and see many of my very best friends, aysmuk - real family, people who we have more in common with than anyone else, even though in most cases we have never met. There have been rough times, but we have stayed together. Avatar touched all of our lives and show us something different, and we recreate that here.

I personally am looking forward to meeting more of you when I can, firstly at the meetup at the Avatar exhibit this year, then the next one I definitely will be there for is Avatar 2, but I hope I will have plenty of opportunities before then. I know that with what we have, the family here will be stronger than ever then

I've shared so much here, things I have never really talked about to anyone, because I can trust the people here in a way that would be impossible with anyone else. I've seen so much of that here form other people as well, and that makes me happy, that what we have works. ToS and Avatar are a single thing worth fighting for, and that gives me some happiness on Earth. Without here, I'd have completely lost myself.

Thank you all for making ToS what it is. This time just over a year ago, I was thinking everything was disappearing all around me. It's only because of the people here now that ToS is here... remember the inspiration Avatar is to all of us. What we have is something like the Na'vi, we are trying to be as close as humans can be. It would not be possible without everyone, and it makes all the effort, all the stress and days on end without sleep, all the time and love invested into ToS completely wroth it.
So, to all of you, my family, oel ngati kameie

Wall of texts aren't really my thing, as I think Eltu can vouch for, but I'll make an exception for this truly extraordinary event!

Time sure passes fast... I remember very clearly the night we set this place up, I remember how it started; as a simple idea.
If someone had asked me that night what the new forums felt like, I wouldn't have been able to give a real answer, for without a community, as with all forums, ToS had no personality yet. The community makes ToS the place it is, something I can't put words on other than "a place I enjoy being in".
Over the year, ToS has seen many members come and go, lots of changes have happened, but it has always remained a safe haven for everyone, where they could speak their mind without fearing being trolled, being laughed at. A place for like-minded people to be, a place for avatar fans, no matter the way they might like the movie.

I'm glad to be a part of ToS, proud of what it has become. You members make this place what it is, I thank you for that, and ask merely that you never forget that.

Now, lets celebrate an awesome first year, and look forward to the many more to come!

I love this place. Really. More than I ever thought I would. So thanks for making it so wonderful. Can't wait for the future of it all (and London 2014 when I finally get to meet people).

Oel Ngati Kameie Human No More.
Oh my god, a year already?
Wow it doesn't seem like it at all.
This place was a haven that we all fled to after a few mishaps with AF and it has remained a safe place for us all.
When TOS began, only a handful of us joined that day, (HNM, Apollo, Stanley, myself and a few others) but look how big it's grown. (I'm sure there's near 100 members now)
Members both new and old, I salute you and am glad most of all that you're part of this family with me.

That is pretty!
On a side note: I wonder if Toruk is edible?
Mmm that sounds almost like blasphemy though. >.<

One year... That went fast O.O

Happy Birthday ToS! 1 year old today and surely many more years to come! With the slow but eventually bound progress towards Avatar 2 I'm sure this place holds more memorable times for us all!
Without this place, I'm not sure what I would have become in life, in fact, without AVATAR I'm not even sure who I'd be right now... This movie changed me as a person, it brought me out of my shell and told me who I was meant to be in life, yes, I sometimes fail to be this person, but I always do my best.

While this movie did have a depressing effect on me, in the long run, I've become a much better person than I was destined to be and it's all thanks to AVATAR, ToS and AF, thankyou from me, for a life changing year and here to many more years to come.

Happy Birthday Tree of Souls, your spirit will live on long after all the movies have finished. We each carry a part of TOS in our hearts.
