Okay Excellent! Excellent!

Now for some Reputation stats!
Since we've started tracking rep exchanges we've given out:

47101 Positive rep
886 Negative rep

of which the last 18 negative reps were given out to mod releases
by the same moron in the span of just a few short days Waiting
(we've banned him as soon as we found out)

Big Slap


So with all that in mind (exceptions included), it's pretty clear that we're fairly consistent and still going strong Thumbs Up
Those pricks who keep wishing that GUN would die, can choke on these stats and cry us a river Dope Slap
I see what you did t

Oh wow it's already 3 years. That time went by fast. Still kinda feels like it was just last year that we moved here from VGU.

But enough of the sentimental crap and on to the birthday party for GUN Very Happy
I just can say that you and everyone else has done an awesome job to continue the legacy of VGU and build something fresh out of it too.
So congratz to that and on to many more years Smile

Gratz for all!!!

Wow, looking at this opening post one can clearly see a lot of stuff that, at least for me, wasn't happening (my bad). Stuff that helps set us apart from a simple mod hub as a true community. We really are a big and active community. I'm looking forward for more integration!!!
Congratz for all that help making ours one of the best gamers community on the web!!!

I wish ourselves a happy 4th year!!!

Happy GUNniversary to all my fellow users here! Exciting that it is our fourth year here now (for me it's the 6th? cuz of the OG VGU). My favorite gaming community and it will continue to be as long as the great people and friends I met here will continue to be here. Congrats to the staff and the modders whose hard work keeps this place going as strong and smooth as it does.

Here's to another great year! 

cough No mention of this new group Lewd Krew? Very interesting...
