13th Anniversary on FF and 10th of the series finale - Planning - Emergency!

It looks like somehow we've overlooked two MAJOR QAF celebrations.

The good news is…we don't have a specific day for 13th year other than Aug 2002. The 10 year post finale date is Aug 7th.

So…we don't have anything prepared.

I updated the banner we had last year, but it would be nice if we could add some testimonials and icons. Maybe use the icons that were all submitted for standards and decorate with 13 years? I have some gif ones from last year that can be updated.

Since we don't have a lot of time, we have the testimonials from last year that we have on AO3, which were really good. We can ask the girls if they want them included. Then we can add our QAF milestones for the celebration history we have.

Do you want me to open this thread up for input?

That banner would be perfect for the new celebration.

The first one or the second banner?

What do you guys think about the testimonials? Also…do you want me to take our Standard Avatar submissions and make celebration avi's out of them, as I have the animated ones below?

Denise…did you keep a screenshot of the 2002 web archive FF page?

I went over to AO3 to have a look for the testimonials and got sidetracked by new, to me, fanfic!

What about re~using the song titles that we had for the 350k party?

I'm happy to use my gorgeous "So long Jack" avi .. unless someone beats me to it!

So did you look at the testimonials. Don't get side-tracked. This is important!

Chill hun! No, I didn't come across them, none of the searches I put in are coming up with anything so I don't know how they're labelled.

They were in our 14th Anniversary of the show celebration thread: http://archiveofourown.org/works/273...apters/6125192

Denise!! You are the BEST EVER!!!

You know what? I just went back to the first Screen Capture and upon closer inspection, LOOK AT THE DATE IT WAS ENTERED!!! I believe this was before it went into a permanent slot. So the first date we can see is March 31, 2002, but it was probably being talked about and campaigned for earlier than that!

Umm .. if people were posting at the start of 2002, why are we celebrating in August? Is this the month it became what it is today?

It looks like this month is when we went into permanent status…I guess.

I'm going to find out. But we're celebrating now!!!

Oh my, that's harsh!

Just been reading the testimonials .. sniff, sniff! Just beautiful! We should include them! I'm sure Victoria and Marta wouldn't mind.

Oh, and I just realised that I've never read Fray's contribution before!

Yes, such beautiful testimonies. I still remember writing my own.

Wow, we're late.
