    Cool Isn't it great that we are EIGHT!!


    Well hello there folks! As of this time yesterday* our community has turned the ripe old age of eight, yes eight, yep that is eight as in the number 8. We're no longer a dumb kid anymore, we may act like it and try and get away with it but we know better, or something like that anyway. From our small beginnings in 2007 to now a lot has happened and of course it hasn't all been good, it hasn't been bad either and there have certainly been plenty of ups along with a small amount of downs, all in all though it's been pretty good and a damn fun ride. As we look to the future we have pretty big plans and hope they come to pass in the early months of the year, we are at a point now where we know what we want to do and how to go about things and as per usual the reason we do it is for our members so any feedback you guys have please deliver it to us.


    It's incredible to see some of the veteran members and names (even though they've probably been renamed many many times!) still around and it shows just how much of a part we are to those peoples' happenings in their life that they still find the time to give us a visit and say hellooo!

    And it is pretty amazing to see the reason we originally started is seeing a real resurgence this many years later due to the phenomenal work and skills of modders, it's seriously exciting to see what is being worked and what could actually come via this in the coming months of the year. I am so thankful that these experts continue to not only find new ways and techniques of opening up and bringing more to these games but also that they continue to do so here and also share their findings with others whatever their experience -- resulting in even newbies gathering the knowledge to start contributing to the modding community and learning the tricks of the trade.

    So yeah it's been an interesting number of years, it's been a real journey not only for myself but I'm sure many of you all too, and it's always surreal seeing so many of you actually growing up. That may sound crazy as all you can see is your text and pics on here but how you post, what you post and the images you share really do show how much how you are doing in your life. And of course a HUMONGOUS HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPOS sized hug to all the supporters and Speshul members who have kept this place online, without you nutters we would not be able to keep our heads above water and eat the bread to keep us powering on.

    What does the future hold for us on turboduck and our community? Well you should hopefully get to see some of this in the next couple of months and I have a plan in my head (oh no!) of where I want this place to go and I hope you will stick around and follow it with me.

    Massive thanks to everyone who has been on and made this community a part of their internet over the last eight years. It's been a real blast and I aim to continue exploding this place for years to come!

    Let's Party like it's 2007!!



    Cheers!

    Diablo & turboduck team

    The name tenebra has brought back so many memories, she was one sassy chick.

    Happy Birthday Tduck! To another 8 years of muppetry and excitement and then disappointment over MOORPG games!

    Crazy to think the community is 8 years old now, I have been here for just over half of those 8 years and it's been a lot of fun, here is to another 8 years!

    That is a nice gathering of words. I wonder which criteria was used to choose them... maybe trending topics and users?

    And TDUCK!

    It was all done mostly manually via my head with what I remembered, what brought about me actually starting tduc up, and then a brief checking out of our very early days.

    It took about 90mins to fill.

    tenebra was the Community Manager/Moderator on the old official EU atari forums and a real good egg. She was incredibly strict but very fair, up for a laugh but took no crap kind of thing, plus she had a sledgehammer and loved ferrets.

    Fixed that for ya.


    And congratulations with the 8 year existence of this place. On to the next 8, and with Project Paradise that's not so difficult .

    No, it's not great because I'm now 18. I miss the old days when I was a new, 14 years old member.

    However, congrats guys. Still a great place to be a part of despite some things.

    I love that graphic, though I question why me and "drunk" ended up next to each other?

    Thank you Diablo for keeping this place open through all these years and to another 8!

    ... can I have a balloon?

    You must have been really drunk if you don't remember what you were saying in the CB recently.

    Congratulations to the duck and to Diablo. This place is an amazing community and it's been a big part of my life for the past 6 years () I hope this place grows and gets the future it deserves.

    Anyone else notice 'spam' next to 'chatbox'?



    Could make a thread on what words were 'missed'... like 'toilet pic'

    More importantly, TDU2.

    I hope, if someone points it out now I'll go cray cray.
