Hey guys, all these photo messages are beyond awesome, I'm so touched and happy to read all of them! Crying Really, I keep smiling and occasionally laughing when I'm reading these really creative and funny messages from you guys! Nod

What should I say? I'm really proud of this forum and of course the reason is because of how cool you guys all are! Creativeness, friendliness, cuteness, mad graphic skillz etc., you guys sure possess more than one of these amazing talents! Not sure if you guys notice but keeping this forum small and tightly knitted is what I like, I pretty much know all of our regular members (not in real person but still) and I'm sure you guys know each other pretty well, especially those that actually contributes to the forum throught participation and insightful discussion.

Let's see, what has changed throughout this 2nd year... Channel-Ai radio and TV are both introduced near the end of last year summer, and yes they are none existent when we celebrate the anniversary last year. Then we have the community map which I believe is very useful for knowing the geographic location of our members, the new Karaoke contest also made us realize guys can actually sing too!

What else... the first Torontonian outing, yes! It's actually shortly after last anniversary, and because of that I get to meet with Shelley, Karan, Hiu and John. Haha, you guys can probably guess who is who, if not, ask caffeinated! Tongue I also appointed 3 new mods for this forum simply because I'm too busy to maintain this forum all by myself. Aprilis., caffeinated and pon pon are the current 3 mods for Ch-Ai, pon pon has yet to make any impact on this forum using his moderator's role but I assure you he'll make some announcement soon that will hopefully increase the quality of our download forums!

The blog has also grown a hell lot throughout the year and now we have a total of 16 writers (including me), even though some of them haven't posted new article for quite a while (I am one of them lol)! Special thanks to Rinoa because she's a really good and dedicated contributor to the blog! Yay to Rinoa for her mad J-Pop knowledge and writing skillz!

Err, before I continue making remark about this site in general, guess I should give some feedback about those amazing anniversary messages! Sorry but I will only give remaks about some of the more creative ones! Gomen!

    Aprilis: Aww, what a sweet card made by our dedicated moderator, gallery manager + blog writer! Thank you, for everything you've done for this community!

    Celsius005: Geekmaster like your message! PWNED!

    Pikachu: I didn't know it's an animated GIF! lol, you look cute in that picture, glad to have you here to spice thngs up! Spread more cuteness in Ch-Ai!

    xShinigami: I don't have much impression about you but nice slogan there! Giggle

    Yunchen: Can you be any sweeter? Love Seeing that picture totally makes me melt, it's my honour to have a beautiful lady holding a sign saying she love my site! Thank you.

    depressant; Okay, you win the most creative award, that totally pwns! Thank you!

    kikubelle: Nobuta powa! Giggle You look great with that sign, but you need to come back more often! Good luck on your exams!

    mafee: Your cat pwns! That's such a nicely decorated message, thank you! You're also a nice contributor, glad to have you here!

    mangomalte: Woo, SMILY shirt! I'm sure a lot of girls will yell at you when they see this, everyone wants a shirt like that at Ch-Ai!

    Mansley: OMG, a stalker! Run! Sneeze

    rainbow12: Aww, you look so sweet in that picture! And that nicely designed "Ch-Ai" in the heart shape poster, you definitely put time into making it with those shiny powder! The Ai-chin poster rocks! 2 beauty in one photo = pwnage! PWNED!

    yangirl: omg, a green bunny! love that channel-ai thingy you made with those cubes, looks great!

    LVXS: creative as usual, nice use of the shadow, very cool!

    Jester: yo, you look great in that picture, and nice drawing too!

Okay now back to the community. It should be quite obvious that people come and go all the time, some people who used to post has stopped posting and visiting and new people who just joined become so active they have more posts than some of our oldest members! Oh well, that's just the cycle of a forum, up and down with different era featuring different members. All of you who sent in a message are the stars of the current forum era! While I'm pretty sure some of you will no longer be active here by this time next year, I certainly hope most of you can make it to the 3rd anniversary, the 4th and on and on. I'll be here, so I would like you to accompany me and witness the growth of Channel-Ai. Nod

There's a lot of thing that I would like to do in the near future for this forum. First, I would like to organize an official weekly get together kind of thing, where members log in within a certain period and talk with each other using the chat room. I definitely like to see our members get to know each other even more and become great friends despite the physical distance between us.

Then there's the wiki project that I hope can be implemented soon. A wiki featuring Ai-chin and everything about her, and of course about our forum, culture and members too.

Err, the library I'm in is closing so yea, I'll see if I'll add more stuff later on lol. Embarassed


edit: Okay I'm back at home now. There's one more project that I'm planning to do after the exams that is to code a portal page for Ch-Ai. The portal page will have the latest topics, posts, news, blog articles, gallery pictures etc. all in one convenient page, using RSS feeds as its back end. I'm sure it will be fun to code such a project just as I had fun coding the radio and TV, providing I have the time to do it. I need to find a job and I'm not too sure what I'll do after I graduate, so yeah, we'll see.

Also, I forgot to mention about the DMCA issues we had. It's pretty bad and I'm sorry that the gallery has to close down for regulars only. I'm trying to bring things back little by little and hopefully we can bring back the gallery once things cool down, which so far is looking pretty good. However, if we do get complained again the gallery will have to stay closed for a long long long long time. I don't want to get into trouble, in fact reopening it might be kinda risky in case the previous complaint is indeed done by the Japanese music or magazine industry. No

I think that's all I have in my plan and that's quite a lot of things to do in fact. Anyway, they are some of the stuff you can look forward for in the future. Wink Once again, thanks to everyone who sent in their awesome anniversary message and lots of love to caffeinated for spending so much effort organizing this evil project. Sneeze Love

Nce to see you are happy eyn.

you said "I certainly hope most of you can make it to the 3rd anniversary, the 4th and on and on" And I reply : it will depend of Ai's work. I "left" the forum after LOVE COOK, because frienger, yumekui and renai sashin were not as better as she did before (in my opinion).

So, I hope I'll be here again in 2008 because I like this community...

Thanks again eyn for Channel-ai. Without you, my knowlegdes about Ai will be so poor today and maybe, I will not "fan" like to day.

Yay! Thanks to all the members, mods, and of course, eyn, for making Ch-Ai such a totally awesome place to hang out! Boogie Through this forum, I've found friends, started listening to great new artists, and not to mention all the fast news updates and rare downloads I've gotten! Love If this forum never existed, I wouldn't have come to love other artists like, ZONE, YUI, YounHa, and many more. Love I've also enjoyed talking with all of you guys, sharing opinions and just complaining about our school lives to each other. Laughing I can't wait to spend much more time here with all of you, and I look forward to meeting more of you and finding new artists I like in the future. Nod

Wow, after all that eyn said, I really have to say thank you for making this board feel like home. Thank you to every single member (even the members I have not talked to or haven't heard of), staff (caffeinated, you are the best!), and last but not least, eyn of course!

Here, I was able to make new friends, find new Ai songs, raise my confidence, there were so many things that just made me enjoy this forum so much. Thank you for being part of my life, I wonder what it would be like if I never posted in this board in the first place.

There was many things I did huh? Laughing I try to welcome almost every single new member, I've done a questions thread, I've been known as "hyperactive" Laughing , I've reached 1000 posts in a month or two, I sometimes broke the rules (eyn, forgive me!!) Laughing, I met alot of you guys!!!

There's so many people to thank!! But I will thank every single one of you! Everyone who has supported me ever since I got here. Thank you, thank you, and thank you!

And please give caffeinated appreciation for making this idea and eyn for making this board! Boogie

Oh no, I can't believe I forgot to make the sign!!! Sad But anyway, I enjoyed looking at all the signs too! Reminds me of how the members at Channel-Ai are ever so beautiful/handsome and sweet. It's two days late, but anyway, I'll still listen to the Birthday Song for Channel Ai's sake. Channel Ai is my favourite forum on the Internet!!! <3

Thank you eyn, really, for having this website where fans of Ai-chin can gather and just talk about Ai and everything else. I had fun these past 7 months I've been here, and although I haven't been very active these past weeks due to work, I still check back here whenever I'm free and it cheers me up to read about Ai-chin's latest news.

Oh, and I love the new thread dedicated to LOVE-chan!!!

Lastly, thanks caffeinated for thinking up of such a wonderful idea to surprise eyn!! Love You're a great mod!

Ouch... I'm late but better late then never right?

So CHANNEL-AI Happy birthday, and eyn i....
the accomplishments & contributions you done
towards the channel-ai forum, and members is priceless! without you
i personally say, that without you there wouldn't be such place as channel-ai.
the best place for every Otsuka Ai fan to connect and share our love towards Ai.
i wish many lovely years to come and so on,
and i must start to be more active towards the forums, since
i haven't much been here so actively lately but that's gonna change Tongue

P's. sometimes actions talk more then thousand words so eyn
you should be really proud of this place.
No doubt that this is the best place on world wide web keep the good work up Love

sorry i missed the day, guys. Sad i have been away from my computer. here is my late contribution. Embarassed

yes, eyn has made me a Mod, so that tells me i need to do some stuff! Laughing like most people i guess, i have more ideas than time, but that just means i need to work out what is more important and do that first. Nod

i plan to have some new categories for downloads so things can be found easier, and organise some existing ones. there are some great resources here at Channel-Ai. eyn mentioned the blog, the radio and TV. i see a well organised downloads section adding to that, so we can enjoy more the creative output of our favourite artist. Boogie

i "only" became a fan at the start of 2006, and i wondered at the time how long my interest would last. well, it has only become stronger, so i certainly expect to be around for the 3rd anniversary. maybe i can then use the same idea again for my photo message with new PVs. Giggle

haha, well, if you look closely you'll see that it's actually just a paper i printed the design on nailed onto the shirt. Tongue i photoshopped it, but it didn't turn out that good. No i'll get my shirt done sometime soon, i hope (i've been saying that ever since i posted the design.... and that was my third post Tongue).
