Happy Birthday to the best anime imageboard on the internet!
I definitely didn't think I'd be doing this for a year, and I didn't think I'd be doing it for 3 years after that too. I'm glad to still be doing it after this long, though.
I'm super happy with the success of Live and how people enjoy the board! It hasn't been up for a year yet, but in the period of time it's been up, it's definitely brought a new sense of community to the site.
To all the regulars, this one is for you. Thanks for sticking with us this long, and thanks for all the great things you guys do around here.
To everyone, thanks for using Samachan. We couldn't do it without you.
Let's go for three more years!
Let's make 2018 Samachan's best year yet!
As imageboard users, we are often in a state of mind that makes us get angry at one another for the slightest things, we hate each other for the tiniest slights, so much to the point that we don't think about the person on the receiving end of the posts. That's why this Christmas, I'm hoping we can all be engaged with everyone in our lives. Spend time with your family, the ones you love, the friends you may know, and the ones you may not. Even if we go back to our old ways tomorrow and we forget how we were today, the love and cheer we spread will always remain.
I'm not telling you how to post, what to post, or how to phrase your posts. I'm not even telling you what to do with any sort of threats. I'm especially not treating this as something you should be obligated to do on here. I'm just hopeful that everyone won't spend a single moment of this Christmas with any emotion other than love and joy. Sometimes we all need just one day where we can come together and celebrate the things we love and the things that bring us together, instead of the things that bring us apart.
Merry Christmas, Samachan. I hope you have a great Christmas.

Apologies for the event ending later than was stated. Due to circumstances out of my control, the votes that were cast after 11:59PM EST on August 17th will be honored. The results still would've remained largely the same, however.
