Super ONM's One Year Anniversary!

Super ONM's One Year Anniversary

It's the 20th October 2015 (or at least it will be in a couple of hours), which means it's one whole year since Super ONM opened its doors. In one year the community has not only survived the closure of the Official Nintendo Magazine and its forums, it has thrived and developed on its own. We have a front page highlighting what is happening around the forum, an active twitter account keeping all our followers up to date with the latest news and events, and the SONM Network Youtube Channel featuring content from the community that continues to prove popular and gain watchers. The forum itself has been host to numerous events, competitions, games and discussions, with over 500 registered members, 1000 topics, and 100,000 posts (the exact numbers are even higher - just check out the bottom of the index page for the stats!).

To cover everything that has happened on the forums over our first year would take up more time and space than is reasonable, and just a few highlights include all of our banners created for special events and in GAAW banner competitions, our new friends and affiliates, and the SONM Summer Awards 2015. However we need your help in highlighting and preserving all of the best moments from Super ONM's first year by nominating the threads you deem worthy in the Archive Nominations thread, and we'll be making a big push over the next couple of weeks in the mod room to review all of the nominated threads to decide what to preserve in the Super ONM Archives! And of course feel free to let everyone know right here what your favourite moments from the first year of Super ONM have been - we'd love to hear them!

Elsewhere on the forum we have a few more special threads crafted especially for our first birthday. You might have already noticed the Super ONM User Survey, which is your chance to give us your feedback on the site and have your voice heard, helping to shape the future of our community. If you have the time we'd love to hear your thoughts! We also have a new thread over in Welcome called 51 Things to do on SONM on a Rainy Day, which as you might expect is a list of 51 interesting things around the forum that you might not have come across before, should you ever get bored. We're hoping to expand this list to include more and more stuff in the future, so do check it out and let us know what we missed! Finally, tying in with the anniversary celebrations we have a new banner competition open over in GAAW for Halloween and Bonfire Night. If you're feeling artsy give it a go, and your design might be the next banner to feature on the site!

As an extra note, you might have noticed our special one year anniversary banners. The design for the default ONM Classic style is animated, but should you wish to have a still image instead, just change over to either the Super ONM or Super Blue style. Thanks!

Thank you for making Super ONM a success and for keeping the community alive. Here's to another great year!

Can't actually believe it's been up and running for a year already, kind of scary how quickly time seems to pass by now.

Anyhow thank you OrangeRakoon and all the mods for helping this site run smoothly and be a great community to be part of.

Hope this forum sticks around for a while longer yet :)

Wow, a year already?

It's been a pleasure. Most of the time. Some of the time. When people aren't being inconsiderate to each other.

That's kind of scary to think about actually. Happy Birthday SONM. Can't believe it's been a year since ONM closed.

This place has certainly been a good replacement though, I like the large amount of community projects and tournaments that have sprung up since the switch, even if I've found myself only really getting much more involved with this place in the last 5 months or so.

Seems weird that it's been a year already.

Here's to another year of anime speak, UK flags, that bloody awful Paddy Mcguiness pic, wrathy vs ghost, and kaee's bizarre acts of sexual deviancy.

<Princess> that's effort
<Princess> I need to buy the stones/go to rocks/make them happy/touch Eevee
