March 13th, 2006: Five Years and Going Strong!

It’s March 13th (well, in some parts of the world, already!) and that’s AoVD’s fifth birthday! That’s right, we’ve been celebrating Vin, his works, and the works he’s inspired for five years, now! To celebrate, we have a new variation on our banner (hit your Refresh button if you can’t see it!) and we’re reopening our chat room!

For the next few days, the chat room will be open here. However, as we bring it back completely, we’re setting it up so that the permanent access will be through our message board, so if you don’t have a board account with us yet, and you’ve had fun in the room, we encourage you to sign up for one. (Remember, AoVD may only be five, but you need to be eighteen or older to join our chat room and message board.)

So join us in celebrating our site’s fifth birthday, and toasting the man who inspired it all! See you there!
