Indulge us just this once, and post some of your Doomworld memories or congratulations in the comments.

    oh come on, first "incident", now "fiasco"? i'd prefer a more politically correct word, such as "the prower encounter which ended up turning out not so good".

    it's not Prower either, it's prower. Prower is the last name of a certain fox, prower is me.

    Happy Birthday you frads. Man, everyone should give Ling, Mord and Cov a big hand for all the crap they've done, it ain't easy work, I can tell ya that much. Duk too I guess, even tho he left. That hoe ;)

    One of the things I still remember, and it sticks with me now for obvious reasons, was the anti-DN, pro-DW stuff that went on when DN opened up a little over a year ago. Remember Cov's big ass rant against Hanif and DN and Legacy, and how he pissed off a ton of people and shit. Man, funny thing is that I was part of the anti-DN shit, as I'm sure you could dig up a few quotes from an old irc log on #doom2 (if one exists).

    Anyway, I like to think that we get along now, as both sites offer different things in the way of how news is delivered, among other things, so that might all be behind us. What do ya know, the Doom Community actually changed enough to accept something.

    Of course there's still anti-DN stuff goin' around, but it's really more anti-Cyb's-annoying-headlines than anything else, but that's a whole diff thing.

    Anyway, great job on two years of hard work and dedication and all that, and hopefully many more will follow...unless the world ends on May 5th or something. So, uh, have a good April!

    I've have been in the community a little longer then doomworld itself (by weeks) and I've seen it all... Its been one hell of ride, i can tell you that much. Looking forward to another well...uhm..i dunno, how ever as long I'm in the community, certainly best place for any kind of news for anything that is or relates doom.....except DN, cause they suck (j/k Cyb, you too good work!). Oh yeah, prower, Prower, however you call it, heh, you still have the last name of Tails there prower. Heh, tails is 3l337, so take no shame in it.

    I still feel bad about not giving Ling props for all the work put into 5 years of DOOM. I thought that was the best coverage of DOOM's birthday on the net. And there was a hell of a lot of coverage. - Blain Newport

    Some memories of Doomworld...

    1. When DW first opened and there was basically no content - it was just a blank page I seem to remember.

    2. Trying to get my site hosted here just after Doomworld opened. Obviously as you can tell it never made it.

    3. Missing out on the millionth hit even though I had four windows going. I got 1,000,001 you know...

    4. Mordeth cracking the shits at me for some comments on TI about DW vs. DN. Of course, I was proven right in the end. As always.

    Happy Birthday Doomworld!!

    two years... I remember wjem Abode the Superfly gave me all the doomnews. What comes to my mind when thinking about these 2 years are the overload release party, how it was release through the events section and how I saw one of MY screenshots on Ola Björlings place in 5years of doom :) Oh and when I could read the story behind some songs from the doom-games. Many thanks (and where did Flood go anyways?) for all the good work Cov, Ling and Mord

    Happy birthday guys. Keep it up...

    Also, happy 3rd anniversary to my girlfriend, Clare (I meant to say that on Icarusweb, but it's down at the moment), who's even better than DooM. No, really.

    I think I started coming here one like the 2nd or 3rd day, or at least the first week of DWs existance. Purely by accident too, I was searching for TCs when DW came up... I shudder to think what would have happened had I not stumbled upon it!

    Anyway, thanks for 2 years of consistent news updates!!

    If i had not found DW about 4 months ago I might not be a doomer today. By the way, how does one have to do to get a hosted site around here?
