As we have been approaching approximately 12 months since I started the site, I've been wondering exactly what date I should be using to celebrate our "birthday".
Should it be the date I first registered the url trueachievements.com? Should it be the date the first web holding page went up? Or maybe the day I create the database?
I've decided to go with this:
It is exactly a year to the day since I first ran the scanner code to grab achievements from the 20 or so people on my xbox live friends list.
The achievement data was dumped into the database, and I ran the TrueAchievement formula against it to see what would happen.
And then 1 year later, you're reading this and we have close to 20,000 members
I just want to say an enormous thank you to everyone who's been involved with the site since that afternoon when I was messing around with square roots and proportionality. The site has become what it is now because of your brilliant ideas and your awesome content - you guys rock!
This morning I've upped a couple of bug fixes, but more importantly I've been working on ways to speed up the site. I won't bore you with the technicals, but it seems to have made quite a difference
So, onwards and upwards! Here's to another year of TA-related achievement-hunting, meeting new friends, playing great games and generally having a blast!
