    On the 31st of December 2000 I've discontinued my registered company officially and on January 1st, 2001 I've started with the forum, private until 2 minutes and ten years ago, when I opened it up.

    from 1/1/01 to 1/1/11

    I want to thank everybody who believed in the community from the start, who believed in me, and who have helped me moderate and manage it. I especially want to thank the old team members from day 1, including mik3, mf, and many others, and the current team members such as Chroder, Brian, and many others. Their motivation and support has kept the site alive.

    But an even bigger thank you goes of course to those who were the reason the site went up in the first place. The chat users on the irc #chatterz and #newbies, as well as vbirc and my online msn/aim/icq and Skype friends. For who I have created a place where we can discuss en-masse the topics that were on our mind. Share screenshots and files, and our opinions about current matters, forum software, and niche topics such as digital media and technology. Their family and friends, and their friends and their friends, and complete strangers from search engines that found us, and became friends, etc .. We have been a social network for many and a daily "what is new" refresh page for many others.

    Thank you all who browsed, registered and posted on the site.

    We've got quite a bumpy history, including domain changes from creations.nl to vbulletin.nl from an open offtopic board to vBulletin discussion board. To a network of offtopic discussion boards, to acquired sites merged into the many sites that were running. But we're back on one community, one network, and all the users, threads and posts are still here, from day 1, all the way to 10 years later; wetalknation.net - currently a private offtopic community for friends.

    Despite our bumpy history, the rough times, and the server moves, team changes, and our full history. In my eyes the site is not the community: But we are.

    You and I are friends, and that's what counts for me.

    creations.nl is how I sum that up, and it's been ten years.
