Just a short note: November 1st 1998 was the day when the first page of Santharia was uploaded - so the site will have its 5th anniversary soon. I therefore plan some sort of special celebrating the anniversary, outlining milestones of development, accompanied by some really old screenshots of Santharia during the course of time - at least as far as I can reconstruct things. Hope you'll enjoy:)

Perhaps you have some ideas in this respect as well, e.g. little stories from the member's side on how you discovered the site, got into the project, what you enjoy most etc. - I guess it would be good to have just a few voices here and there, which adds a bit of variety, not only a presentation from the webmaster's point of view. Well, maybe you have an idea ot two in this respect, what we could add here...

That is a really great idea Arti. :D .

Yeah, I think a special thread for this would be the best option. Members can input into it their experiences etc.

:D  :D  :D

November 1? The day of my SAT II... ~_~;

I'm happy, though, that after 5 years, Santharia is still up and progressing.

Its quite an achievement to have reached the ripe :p  ae of 5 years.
Many sites appear and perish in less time than that.
I'm proud and happy to be part of a site that despite all he time passed still is growing and becoming more and more detailed.

I wonder.. will we ever do a Santharian world meeting.. imagine that.. people from all over the world coming together..eehehe... just another crazy Lucirina dream.

I like the idea of several contests about our love of the site.  That would be a great idea.  They could be put in the ode section or something ya know.  Wow, it has been a while.  A lot happens in five years. :nod

Wouldn't a world wide gathering be great!  I say we all invade Art's house for the 7th anniversary!  That would give us all a chance to save up money.  Just kidding Art hehe  But it would be cool if it was some centralized place.  I bet if we started planning something for a certain date or month it could be somewhat feasible.

actualy the 10th anniversary would be better, though pros and cons or when and where are always hard to do cause so many people are here from all over the world...

Still I think it would be nice, and I can imagine a large room with isles of computers and santharians posting on them cause their all too shy to talk face to face :P

Contest/competitions: Well, as has already been mentioned several times at other occasions - contests where the best poems/stories or pictures are judged are never ideal, as this would produce winners and losers, and this is not precisely Santharian spirit. Also contests would mean that people could feel forced to do something.

I think not really much is required from people, but if everybody (or at least some people) could contribute something, be it a poem, just a little funny sketch for example from an artist, a funny little forum-story or something, this would be fine already. I don't know if most people have time to try their hand on something in this respect, but it would be appreciated a lot;)

Meeting: Well, sounds a bit unlikely that we'll be able to meet all at the same place at the same time, and it would also be a matter of costs:  - And people might get a shock of their lifetime, if your webmaster isn't the male sexbomb Faugar made him with his portrait:lol  So far I've only met Lamertu as he passed through Vienna, and at least he has surivived:devilish

I really like the idea of a meeting, but it would sure cost a whole lot too much for it to be realized in the forseeable future...

Wherever it would take place, I'd do all I could to save up for a plane ticket on time.

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.
09 May 2017, 14:17:18
Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
