Is it retro or s2beta that's five years old? =P ...and selbi, the scene this website spawned from has existed about fourteen years. The first popular message boards appeared about twelve years ago and if you're anal about continuity...

s2beta anyboard (twelve years ago - ten or nine years ago), s2beta ezboard (ten or nine - seven or six years ago), simon came back which caused a split in the board, so you have simon's s2beta and sonic classic... then finally simon left leaving local H in charge of s2beta which merged with Sonic Hacking Information Treasury to become Sonic Retro. That's how I understand the last part at least. I was off doing drugz during the last merger >.>

5 years? Maybe my memory is failing, but I recall sws2b board was already around back in 2003, and possibly in 2002.

This is what I would draw if I were the same age as Sonic Retro as of the time of this announcement.

(Hey, I drew enough as a kid to figure out I probably shouldn't.)

Happy Birthday Sonic Retro! I have high hopes there will be more birthdays to come!
Not to ruin the moment or anything, but Anniversary would probably be more actuate.

Even though I have been around the Sonic Community since May of 2003, the SWS2B Board started in December 17, 2002 (Back when Simon was in charge), but it didn't open to the public until January 10, 2003, and the first member to join the forum is LOst (Even though he is listed as Member #3, while Simon was listed as Member #2), and Sonic Retro started in September 14 (Today), 2004 as the SSonicNET Database, which was founded by our very own Alexbt.

I've been lurking since SWS2B, and only registered last month. Why did it take me so long?

Here, have this image that has nothing to do with this topic:

Oh well, good to see places are still going strong.
