Happy 10 Year Anniversary Papermodelers.com

Yes we are 10 years old, it just happened a couple of days ago.

In those 10 years, papermodelers.com has grown to be the largest English language forum dedicated to paper and card modeling on the internet.
We have members from virtually every round corner of the Globe, yes even one or two in Antarctica.

You might be wondering why there are no special banners, or other celebrations, one main reason, our real lives got in the way, family, health, school, and any number of other reasons could be given.

But now we can celebrate, if there are any suggestions as to how, let us know.
Would you want to see contests, giveaways, challenges, a fancy banner on the top left logo? Let us know.

I have an idea or two, but we can still use more.

Come join us and celebrate 10 years of papermodelers.com

Here's to the next 10!

Rick

Yay us! Congratulations to everyone who has ever built a paper model, designed one, or enjoyed browsing and admiring paper models. Long may our community continue!

Congratulations!!!!!!!!

And thank you Rick very very much for all your efforts, and all the moderation that helps to keep everything levelheaded - and I am sure has contributed to the growth of the Forum!

Thinking cap on now - I'll see if I can come up with any good celebration suggestions/ideas!!!!

10 years, boy howdy that's good.
Congrats to everyone involved in starting and keeping the place around, to all the members that have stuck around, and to the new ones that join every day.

For the official PM.com, it is 10 years. A most momentous occasion.

For some of us, it goes back way beyond that.

Before it was Papermodelers.com, we became a victim of another
forum cleansing.

Some of us go all the way back to a long forgotten forum
called Cardmodels.net

I learned of this, from a list known as
cardfaq.org run by Steve Brown, one of the
original Paper Model convention attendees.

I am grateful to have discovered this group of folks.
many of which I have met.

Thank you to all who have allowed us to become
the premier English speaking, paper model group
we are today.
