Title: Site: RHDN Turns 2!
Post by: RHDNBot on December 23, 2007, 10:02:19 pm
Update By: Nightcrawler

Another big year has gone by for RHDN. With the launch of RHDN 2.0 back in June, community contributions went way up, and our database has grown significantly with the best documents, utilities, translations, hacks, and more for the ROM hacking community. RHDN has continued to succeed, prosper, and become ever more popular as the central hub of ROM hacking for ROM hackers and community supporters all across the globe.

Never before has such a global force of talented ROM hackers been assembled. We've got ROM hackers from most major countries around the world. Our forums are full of some of the brightest and most talented ROM hackers around the world exchanging help and information to keep the community strong, healthy, and growing! It's really the ‘globalization’ of RHDN that was the biggest surprise to me for year 2.

This past year, RHDN has really started to meet many of it's primary goals. The vision I had for RHDN is slowly becoming reality. But as far as we have come, there's always plenty more road to travel. Site development will continue into 2008 as additional features, capabilities, and content will surely find a home on RHDN.

Another year, and another big ‘Thank You’ goes out to our hard working staff and all of you around the world that have contributed to our community. Everybody's contribution counts. It will continue to take the efforts of all of us for RHDN to continue to grow, be kept up to date, and continue to be the best resource, social hub, and community tool available to us all.

This is our site. It's user maintained. We all keep it's heart pumping. As I said last year, as long as the community lives, so shall ROMhacking.net!

I've been following the site since it started on the Transcorp forums. I hope it never goes down.

More than two years now (Of course work on this site started well before release)... wow. I owe a lot to this site, without it I wouldn't have known how to spend countless hours of my free time. Not to mention all the cool people I know from here and all the great stuff I've learned. I hope RHDN will last for years to come.

Don't forget to thank Nightcrawler, without his vision this site would never have come to be :) I don't even dare to think about how many new translation and romhacking projects might have never seen the light without this site.

Happy Birthday RHDN!

Comparing the number of posts in this topic versus the ToP release topic is...enlightening  :P

Indeed... Somewhat ironic how probably half the people would know about the translation without the site.

First of all, happy second birthday to RHDN.

Indeed... Somewhat ironic how probably half the people would know about the translation without the site.
There's no denying that.  But ToP PSX has been around for 9 years and people have been waiting for a translation of it for the past 7 or 8 years, so you can't blame people for having an interest.  Plus, we're using RHDN to talk about a translation romhack.  In its own way, that thread too is a celebration of what RHDN is here for, right?  The best way to spread the word about RHDN is more high profile projects that bring in people from around the world, right? ;)

...or am I stretching?

I know I'm going to be hit with the biggest "you didn't know THAT?" in the world. But I may as well ask and get it over with.

What site do you run Cid? I'm sure I've been there but never linked it with you.
