The big 2-0!
 
Today is not only Halloween, it is also The Technodrome's twentieth anniversary!

Thank you so much for sticking with us and helping us reach this milestone!

Can we get vBulletin 5 now? :)

Well since nobody else is saying it, I will.

Thank you Krang. 20 years is a millennium in internet years.

Pay no mind to the saltys above.

Thank you Krang and to all you who keep this place alive!

This placed survived the death of fansite forums and the rise of social media. Hard to believe a site from 1999 will still be going in 2020.

Do the young teens of today even register to forums anymore? Nowadays the younger generation is all on twitter or YouTube.

Happy Birthday the Drome! not been long but glad I got the time I did, thank you Krang.

Especially a message board.

That is a pretty legit milestone. Especially beginning in '99 when specific forums were essentially a new phenomena.

I remember chillin' in the computer lab at school back in '97 or so. People would log in to this sort of bland "forum" with a yellow background and have completely unguided conversations for no other reason than the ability to speak to someone from another country. You can imagine how those conversations went.

So thank you for keeping this place up and running for some great people to chat TMNT!

Honestly had the revival of the early 2000's of TMNT with Volume 4 and the 2k3 cartoon not have happened, this place probably would have died off. I think a lot of people have forgotten that time was just people in their teens being nostalgic about the original cartoon and trying to hunt down VHS tapes and old comics, but it wasn't until the early 2000's the fandom really took a spike.

Hell, I remember most people originally registered to this forum because of the 4kids cartoon and people were so surprised TMNT came back to TV with a new cartoon.

Happy 20th Anniversary!
 
Thank you Krang! Happy 20th Anniversary to The Technodrome!

This is actually a very good point. The longevity of these boards are also a testimony to the adaptability of the IP across time.

Thanks Krang! I look forward to buying the 'Drome a beer next year. :tgrin:

Hey there, Boss.

Happy birthday, Technodrome! :D

I would like to thank all of the moderators and administrators for keeping this forum active.

Stay strong!

IndigoErth 11-02-2019 11:24 PM

Happy belated 20th! That's pretty remarkable for a forum.

Wesley 11-03-2019 01:35 PM

Happy belated birthday, Technodrome. Still one of the best Internet forums ever.

MikeandRaph87 11-03-2019 01:47 PM

Happy birthday to the connector of Turtlefandom. Its hard to believe it started in the 4 year long dead era and is still running pretty strong despite the operators not being around any longer.

TheCanadiandrome 11-03-2019 03:01 PM

congrats on the huge milestone, and despite this place becoming so unbareable to be around lately, it's still a big deal

Mysticwarrior7 11-04-2019 12:44 PM

Happy belated 20th🎉 Sorry for the late reply, but very glad to be apart of it:tgrin:

A very belated Happy Anniversary to the Drome!!!

I kinda feel bad I wasn't around to say Happy Anniversary. >< Hopefully I'll be around for the 30th...or at least the 25th. ^^

Congrats man. Hope your well during all this craziness.

SonOfZog 08-17-2020 06:07 AM

I am glad this was effectively bumped, as I missed this originally. This is great achievement for thetechnodrome and made me look back on the last 20 years, during which thetechnodrome was reliably thriving. Hope it continues, thanks team!

A very belated 20th birthday to the 'drome. This was like a virtual second home of sorts to me ;w; and one of the best and most fun meeting places...it was a huge part of my teenage years...it has a special place in my heart.
Here's to 20 more x'D

Dejablue 10-02-2020 03:08 AM

Can I have some virtual cake please? Yes I just came for the food...

DarkFell 11-07-2020 08:28 PM

So, no Happy 21st thread for the Technodrome, huh?

Oh well - it is officially at a legal age to have a drink now. :tthumbsu:
