9ch 16 year anniversary

I am struck with awe.

Its hard for me to look at 9channels history as one big picture, or a timeline, because I see it in a broken up way. I dont see "16 years" - i see each year on its own and it feels like something uniquely different. For me, its been humbling to have the privilege of enjoying such a community for so long, and without it, I wouldnt have started some other websites.

9ch grew into something larger than itself. By the end of its lifetime it wasnt just a website, it was like a large family. Personally, 9ch changed my life - literally. If not for its creation I likely would have never gotten into the internet, or even left my small farming town. I attribute my success to its existance.

After almost 3 years of downtime, the spirit of 9channel lives on through its many revivals. I dont always know what I am even saying here, but I want to convey my gratitude to 9channel and its users, and to the path it lead me down.
