Since we opened in Oct. 2005, every year our amount of members have increased. So it's hard to say if it's increased because of the smoking ban or just because it has simply increased. I don't remember the exact date Iwaku was founded by Peridox as a .hack sign fan site but as you all can tell we've changed a lot over the four years we've been on. We've had some loldrama and a few trolls over the years but so far it has been a fun experience. I'd like to thank all the staff and few Old Guard members we still have around for putting up with Amso and myself for the past two and a half years as admins. To the newer generation of member, you guys are the real life blood of the forum and with out you it'd just be me and Diana spinning around on office chairs due to our short attention spans. So to make a long story short, get off my lawn and enjoy the time you spend on this little area of the World Wide Webs we call home.
