Pop those grunts and listen to the kids cheer, as it is the time for celebration! We have a few bullet points on the agenda for this special occasion that we are sure will make you excited for the weeks to come.
Firstly, we are doing a month long celebration for the big 'One-Zero', starting with a little bit of history of when ForgeHub came to life. We will then go into some fun facts about ForgeHub and some memorable moments from the past, ending with a spectacular charity live stream. We plan to center this all around you, the community, since we wouldn't be here without you all in the first place!
As we dug through the old archives of the website to find when the site and community came to be we ended up coming across a few different dates. These different dates is what lead us to make this 10th year into a more special one month celebration. Today the 10th is the anniversary of ForgeHub when the idea and initiative to create ForgeHub spawned, or so we believe. The info we have from that time is from the first anniversary when we found a thread from the staff asking when the anniversary of ForgeHub actually is, to which the original creator replied with October 10th. ForgeHub.com was registered on November 2nd and shortly after, the first member joined was on November 9th. With that said, ForgeHub has grown over 85,000 members and that means a lot.
Since the site wouldn't be anything without the life force that is the community, we are making the official anniversary of ForgeHub, November 9th. We believe on that day the community took it's first breath and has grown into what it is today.
We would like the community to submit their fondest memories from around the forge community. Whether it's your favorite forger (whether the member inspired, helped, or someone who has been your goto lobby warrior), most memorable forged map, or even the craziest of forge creation, share it with us. We want to create a special 10th anniversary ForgeHub montage culminating the years that we all have time that we have spent together. We're the heart of the forge community, so lets take the time to celebrate it right with the ForgeHub community and it's creations!
Charity Live Stream for Extra Life:
To finish off the month of celebration and to also help give back, we are going to do a live stream to help raise money for children's hospitals and spend some time with the community we love. The 10th Anniversary/charity stream will most likely be an all-day stream involving the staff and those from the community. We plan on having giveaways as well as fundraiser stretch goals. We have some awesome surprises in store but are still ironing out a few details so expect another article soon with more solidified plans.
Use the comment section to share those memories with us or PM one of the staff members if you like to surprise the community with your most memorable moment over the past years. For the stream, we would like to hear some ideas for stretch goals as well as other ideas you would like to see happen on the stream.
