As some of you may notice at the bottom of the forums, Computer is now 2 years old as of today. Computer’s date of birth coincides with the first date of the original site, all the way back in 2009. In celebration, the Gizian News Network, GNN, will be created later on this week with the first video showing the past, present, and possible future of the Gizmos. I will be showing the various stages this site has gone through as well as explaining some of the original purposes I even made this site for. I will likely be making this video on Thursday of this week, if not sooner.
Now, the GNN will be either a monthly or a bimonthly video broadcast, typically reviewing some sort of game (such as the ever-addicting Minecraft I’ve fallen victim to). We will portray various updates to the design and idea design for Gizmos, as well as a few other currently undetermined things. Now, I pose to you a poll: Which address should point to the GNN? Vote now on the forums!
Finally, my own personal note on this, I’ve worked hard bringing this site to the Internet. Two years ago, I started off knowing nothing of web design and actually tried making the first page in Microsoft Word (a mistake I would never repeat). Back then, the site had no purpose except to exist. Since then, it has evolved, grown, developed deep lore that we have enjoyed and I must say, I am pleased with the progress. A lot happens in two years and I am very glad to have each and every one of you here alongside me on this quest, especially those who have been with the site from the start who I would like to personally recognize now:
Jenn Hama Ndore – My second in command and faithful assistant in making this site a better place. It is mainly due to his tireless work that you can enjoy a spam-free environment. Thank you, Jenn.
Razgriz13 – A bloodthirsty, killer robot who without, this site would often be very dull. He keeps things lively in his… strange ways. Thank you, Raz.
Tigerlily – A near impossible woman to please, and when you do, she panics over something else. Despite us once being a “couple” of sorts and going through a rather rough breakup, she has remained true to this site (mainly because I think she has a crush on Jenn…). Thank you, Tigger.
Jeremy – Jenn’s brother and while no longer a member of the site, he was with us for a long time and truly helped shape this site and its lore through his defiance. Thank you, Jeremy.
Now those who have helped a bit more recently:
Casanova – You’ve been a tremendous help in the short time you’ve been with us here, always coming up with ideas and helping to improve the design and gameplay of Gizmos to make it truly unique and truly wonderful. Thank you, Nova.
With that, I must take my leave, in closing, I am proud of this site and what bit we have accomplished on here and I do look forward to another great year of Zim’s Gizmos. Ra’Zim out.
