Tenth Anniversary of ValiantFans.com Message Board

Post by greg »

My first Valiant website was in 1997 or 1998... it was a page or two of Valiant information.
It grew pretty quickly with help from a few guys supplying images and info.

In 1999, I moved all the information to a nice new online home when I registered ValiantComics.com

In 2002, a message board was added to ValiantComics.com and it had a couple of incarnations before the current version.

I re-launched the ValiantComics.com message board "3.0" in the first week of February 2004.

In June 2004, the ValiantComics.com message board was (successfully) moved to a new server and domain name, ValiantFans.com Message Board.

Since we didn't lose any posts in the move, this version of the messageboard has now been active for ten years.

Happy 10th Anniversary!

:high-five:

Happy 10th! Thanks for creating & maintaining this great community for all of us, Greg! :clap: :clap:

I've really enjoyed being part of it since discovering it at the launch of VEI. I couldn't ask for a better bunch of online pals to hang out with & talk about all things comix with :thumb:

Thanks, Greg!! Its been a fun ride! :)

I wonder to what degree did this board play a roll in re-establishing the characters and bringing them back to print and hopefully the big screen one day?

Compliments to you and all your work Greg. I truly believe without this sight there would not even be a VEI today due to the huge part you and this site have played in giving people of a like interest a central point to exchange ideas, encourage people such as Dinesh and others. Kudos to you sir and the part you have played in the successful resurrection of Valiant :thumb: :clap: :high-five:

10 years ago I was looking all over the internet for a nice list of all Valiant books until I finally stumbled upon this site. Without it, collecting would not have been fun. Thank you for everything and here's to 10 more wonderful years as Valiant fans!!! :thumb:
