Title: Site: RHDN 5th Anniversary and RHDN 2.3 Released!
Post by: RHDNBot on December 24, 2010, 07:25:44 pm
Update By: Nightcrawler

RHDN has turned 5 years old! We've had nearly 30 million unique visits. We are only a few months away from being the longest lasting active ROM hacking website in history. In honor of this occasion, we have released RHDN 2.3 to the site with the addition of several new goodies. Read on for details!


RHDN 2.3 has been released! It's the culmination of all I've been working on this year for RHDN. I have cleared out most of the backlog of items leaving only those that never had a detailed plan for implementation. The following are some of the additions that have been made:



It's been a very good year around here. RHDN hit it's niche this year being a positive place where people can come to exchange information, discuss projects, and socialize more than ever before. Stability, personnel, management, and community participation were all at very admirable levels. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of our staff and community members who helped contribute to RHDN this year, and build the longest lasting, largest site of it's kind! There were many impressive releases this year from our community content creators, and the bar just keeps rising. I look forward to seeing what everybody is capable of in year 6!

At this point, I've done nearly everything I set out to do with the site. I had hoped to eliminate staff entirely at one point, but experience has shown we need to continue to have screening staff members in order to maintain adequate quality levels on the site. A few other compromises were made along the way where experience showed some ideals were not practical. However, for the most part, my original vision has come to full fruition and exceeded all my expectations.

With 5 years of development coming to an end, it is now time to look to the future and determine a path to take for the next 5 years. I extend an invitation to all to discuss with us your hopes, dreams, and visions for the RHDN of the future. We will re-evaluate our roles, lay out a new plan, and embark on a new journey forward!

We're being ranked on our contributions? :huh: Really now? You have to make it a contest?

Anyway, nice to see a breakdown of contributions instead of just a number now. :)

Heh, count me in. I can still remember spending times at some site even before donut.parodius as translation news source. Have forgotten the name though. On that matter, I always wondered why whirlpool should be australian for beer?   :-\

Anyway, all I can say is keep up the good work guys!  :beer:

Somehow I feel a mistake was made. Now people are going to use that "party.gif" for everything. XD

Happy anniversary, RHDN! I hope for ten or twelve more! :D

I'm a few days late, but I think this is worth a response.  :)

Congrats for making it this far! I'm far from being the most active member here, and I should probably contribute a bit more often, but I've been keeping up with the updates since pretty much the beginning. It's definitely nice to finally have a stable, centralized ressource for everything related to ROM hacking. Before, when you needed a translation, you had to search all over the Internet and deal with possibly several versions of an ongoing work while dealing with ROM incompatibilities. Now, all you need to search for is a game's title, and you're presented with the best choices right away. I hoped for, but didn't really expect the community to last this wrong, and I'm glad to see that people are in for the long haul.

Here's to the past five years, and to several more!  :beer:

It amuses and disturbs me to realize...

1. I've been here since almost the beginning.

2. I really used to be annoying as hell.

3. I'll probably end up remembered more for "Sylvanians on a Page" than the Super Robot Wars logo I made from Atlus' Super Robot Taisen logo.

But hey, I moved on to bigger and better things, right? ^_^;

Were you the one that found out Simon's Quest's NPC are intentional liars? ;)

Wow... I registered in 2006 (only to ask a simple question about a pixel in LoZ that I couldn't seem to edit out, I'd been coming to the site before then- and around the time the Whirlpool was around too) and it's 2011... Man, I can't believe all the time I've wasted on here and I still can't hack anything. At least I can change uncompressed sprites around. ;_;

Happy Anniversary, RHDN.

Ayup. IIRC, Kitsune Sniper was trying to do a retranslation. I offered to help, found the script, and unearthed the truth about the Graveyard Duck.

I feel like I had read something about that. Kitsune doesn't post much here any more, does he? :/

Well, some people have stopped posting here for the sake of their own sanity (I guess that’s the nice way to put it).
