Showtime for Free is turning 1 years old!
« on: August 26, 2010, 12:06:35 PM »
December 8th, 2005 spawned the true original, "Showtime for Free" message board.  http://midnighter20c.proboards.com/index.cgi

But the members wanted... and yes, WE NEEDED, to get our own .com.     So I pulled the trigger on it, and finally bought the domain, www.showtimeforfree.com  8)   Some members were a bit rattled at first losing all their old post counts, but I knew that we could build again, and build fast!  

Members, the "Founding Fathers" of the old site joined here fast and helped move some old threads here to the new site, and old Mods were made new Mods once again, as the new SfF.com, built it's way up to a fast start.  

Special members from both Microsoft and video game programmers from Sony's side of the field, both post in here with imo, great information, and takes from their own points of view... Both helping our Gaming community here at the site grow.

Our member Vsions, helped out huge with the giving away of a Halo Reach Beta token, giving the site a huge boost in views, and popularity.  http://showtimeforfree.com/index.php?topic=1828.0

As well as our member KTA, who informed the gaming community over on Kotaku that we were having a give away.  http://showtimeforfree.com/index.php?topic=1771.msg12728#msg12728

Then it was our awesome member, Omni that made possible the greatest give away to date, the Red Dead Redemption, PS3 game give away, that had people from all over talking about our site.  http://showtimeforfree.com/index.php?topic=1908.0

And then to out do himself, he then starts our glorious, and most Showtime for Free, fan capturing give away... FREE PRIZE MADDEN 2011 FOOTBALL LEAGUE, that has to brought even more members here to our site.   Good solid members that our helping our community grow.  

Big shouts for the year go to members Voltan, Isntmentolast, hdinred, Omega Bombs, mondayshift, nmcmahan52, Onslaught, Cuco, SurfinHB, SadisticKeith, Szabada, PocketNYC, LoadySmurf, Pakman3000, Dz, Vsions and to my Mods, Caine, Master X, mischa316, and chazuk!   (sorry if i forgot anyone that has been on constantly for the year)

YOU GUYS HAVE HELPED KEEP THE COMMUNITY SOLID AND GROW SO MUCH... I PERSONALLY THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, AND HOPE YOU ENJOY ANOTHER GREAT, AND BETTER YEAR OF SHOWTIME FOR FREE.  :)

This thread will be unlocked on the 19th, so we may have great 1 year birthday wishes, and stories of favorite moments of the site.   Favorite topic, quote, ect....

I lied!  It's open all of September, and this is the month of Showtime for Free!

hahaha i am NOT drunk god knows i wish i was at this point, and i am too nice, ok yea not really but SOMETIMES i am well, some times im not mean and 2, refer to quote below. lol.

because it will make them money...

well yea, obviously, but its pretty dumb doing ithalf way through a series, i guess its the same as putting saints row 2 on both, i f theyre going todo it  think they should do it right and put both, other wise unless youve played the first one you really wont appreciate the secand one.
Saints Row? I wasn't aware that this game was so story driven or that it had a compelling story, or that there was a story at all. Certainly Saints Row 2 isn't a continuation to the story of Saints Row one is it? I mean I could be wrong, I never played either.

But comparing Saints Row to Mass Effect!?!?!? That's bad, even for you.




any more questions?
