    So, my Dear Fellows, it's now been officially one year since the first data
    of the Old Site was transferred to the New XL Nation, hosted by XenFORO.

    Many important events happened within that year, and I would want to sum them up
    and analyse them in rather humorous way for you. I would also want to thank several people
    here. I first thought that it was the best to create two distinct parts of the speech,
    one to thank the people, one to review the events. But after a while,
    I changed my mind and created the following speech:
    There are 3 Parts, but at the end, there will be cake!

    Thanks for the great tribute to XLN, @kipate. The site wouldn't be the same without you.

    My congratulations, too, to everyone, and a huge thank you Icy Hot. Let the good times roll!

    Great speech Kip (y)

    Thanks to Icyhot for taking care of the site and content which are fundamental to the community, and to all the builders and modders who keep it alive.

    I love your polandballs, you should have a thread for them and make a new one resuming the events (site or world events) of the week or month. it would be fun :p

    FHI may have did the baking, but it's you guys/gals here at XLNation that put "the icing on the cake".
    Thanks for all the hard work and
    Happy Birthday!!

    Yah we made it a year. I would add a couple of items to the history.

    1. Honorable mention should go to the XLNation user mobilmalik

    2. Monty for putting up with me wanting to change the board theme every few days

    3. The controversy over the proper shoutbox chat sound. (sadly no sound now)

    On another note I will be installing version 1.50 of xenFORO soon, some nice feature upgrades.

    I'm proud to be a member of this high quality community. Thanks to everyone, specifically to IcyHot, charismatic members as Kipate (can't name everybody, it would be too long) and all the modders. I'm a little sad to see more and more inactive modders (Fayed, Pitty, Supersnake, Playtime, Ole ... another too long list). But Aitortilla came back so there's hope. Happy birthday XL Nation!

    Thx for your words, kipate. This is the only website supporting Cities XL as the game and its community deserves. So, of course, also thanks to all the modders and prolific members of this site. Happy birthday! :)

    To me XL nation has always been CXL one just couldn't have any appeal without the other, so thanks to all the people Kipate mentioned and to all the others who along the way who for some reason or another haven't been here yet, your mods are alive in our cities, and we thank you too

    Looking forward to another year!

    Happy Birthday XLNation!!
    Great post kipate :)
    I'm glad I could help with the transfer from the old to the new site. XLNation has just about become the only site I visit now.
    I hope we will have many more birthdays :)

    Awesome post! Really love this community, wish I had more time to be a part of it. This makes me want to take a third attempt at modding again..the last attempt I was sooooo close to finishing a building and my computer wacked out due to other reasons and I totally lost interest. :( Kipate, you've inspired me to try again. Also I try to be a helpful and encouraging 'vagabond' as you put it. ;)

    images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS4OCPULlqD0yG4DA4_o6NL9ewHL4z7qGpsnZCxm4Fp6HL_bjOiMQ.jpg

    JUST KIDDING! :D :D :D
