Can you guess what today it? Yes? What, how?! Oh wait, I put it in the title. That’s right, it’s my 4 Vineversary! As of today, January 25, I’ve been a member of Comic Vine for 4 years.

In that time I’ve:

Painted over 360 Legos to look like Comic Characters

Almost burned down my house with this Lego Arkham Asyluminorah:

Arkham Asyluminorah

Became a moderator, commanding the fear and love of the masses; Played the violin while Comic Vine burned…oh, waitaminute, wrong script. Sorry.

But I did win place in the favorite moderator category two consecutive years...and came in first once!

Read a TON of comics

Those boxes are all full of comics

Cosplayed some of my favorite characters…and met their writers! (Many of whom happen to be my idols!)

Posted 23,081 times (between my profiles)

Wrote 210 blogs (between my profiles)

Created 137 profiles for RPGing

Wrote 15 reviews

Earned 41,593 wiki points

Went from this….to THIS in RPG

Got elected president

Made so many terribly obnoxious puns

Continued to claim credit for the term Vineversary even though Sora or Aztek came up with it. I’m pretty sure by now I can keep the trademark through squatter’s rights.

Made 18 lists

Submitted the all-time record for trivia questions

Got into college!

And made a whole lot of friends! :)

I love you all! Keep Comic Vine cool! <3

@Samimista: @Owie: @ARMIV2:

Lets be honest here, aren't you just a teeny weeny jealous that you haven't got a hug from G-Man. Which reminds me Samimista, that's my wish :P

@Icarusflies:

Hope you continue to help Comicvine in the way you do man. I keep saying it, but its nice to have people like you on the site :)

@laflux: Oh snap! How'd you know? I secretly envy Icarus for receiving a hug from G-Man. Maybe I'll annoy inferiorego to give me a free Deluxe Hug.

That is exactly what I said. Seriously. Out loud.

Icarusflies --- forever special to me as the first moderator to reach out to me (yay quest points!) and to welcome me into this community. Very kind and helpful and hilarious and talented and a comic fan's fan.

Congratulations! I remember last year when I got to do this for your third and I am so happy to be able to do this again on your fourth. It's been quite a year for you -- you are strong and phenomenal.

:)

@SoA: Aww, thank you!!! I'm glad you like the cosplays! ^_^

@Samimista: Thank you so much!!!!! I'm glad you like the pictures! :D

@Lvenger: Thank you!! I've actually been thinking about how best to put it together again...which is weird since I totally forgot about it for a few months there. I'll start really working on it when I can get around to scanning evidence from my comics. And GUINEA PIGS IN PARTY HATS!!!!!! :D

@Decoy Elite: Thanks!!!!! The Legos were my trademark here back in the day! :)

@ARMIV2: Thank you!!! I'm glad you approve! ^_^

@Owie: Thank you so much! :D

@LordMaverick: Yeah! >high fives<

@Referee: Thank you!!!! I think I might have the second most profiles (Sha having the most). :)

@laflux: Everyone needs a hug from G-Man. And thank you so much!!!! :)

I'm that Dos Equis guy if he was a total nerd. ;)

@V_Scarlotte_Rose: Thank you!!!!!! :)

@k4tzm4n: I know, right!!! I think this makes it pretty clear that I think comics are God's gift to sliced bread. :)

@ARMIV2: Thank you! It's from SDCC 2010. I think it was DC's free giveaway item. :)

@Xanni15: Thanks!

@MrDirector786: Thank you!!!!! :)

@lykopis: AAAH, thank you so much!!!!!!!! It's so kind of you to say that!!!!!! And oh my gosh, those guinea pig GIFs are adorable!!! <3

@PowerHerc: Thank you!!!! :)

@YourNeighborhoodComicGeek: Yep! That's what you get for spending too much time in the RPG scene...it also used to be a LOT easier to set up a new profile, so it wasn't that uncommon to have a bunch.
