PackersHome was created October 14th, 2006. This Friday will mark five years of existence. For me, it doesn't seem that long ago, but for those putting up with me, the rapid changes and everything else, it probably feels like the site had been around ten years.

We've seen the site mainly for archiving good articles and hosting highlight videos, to a sudden boom in '08 when PackerForum sold out, to another boom with GameDay Chat, a few outages thanks to spam accusations, one major platform change, elimination of full sports material posting and of course a lot of other things here and there.

PackersHome both makes me crazy and also allows me a necessary release. There are days when I want to say, screw it, it's not worth the hassle, its not worth the effort, then there are days I think I don't know what I'd do with it. When I get upset at the world, need an escape, I start coding, trying to find things to improve the site, to make it stand apart from the next site so it's the last site you stop at. Maintaining it sure can be a headache at times, and that's solely because of my tactical approach to doing it. Some would swap Nazi-Like instead of tactical, and I wouldn't fault them for it. The site does mean quite a bit to me, it's my hobby predicated on my favorite sports team. Nearly every decision I make is in the best interest of the site, even though most do not understand, nor appreciate that point, it is 100% valid. Sometimes you have to lead by example, sometimes you lead by making mistakes deliberately hoping others will step up.

In many ways this site is a reflection of me, who I am. I suppose that won't make sense to anyone. Either way, I've always tried to help others in any capacity that my experience allowed. I try to make others happier if at all possible, even at the cost of my own and I hope the existence of PackersHome can shed some happiness on those who come here.

In the end, PackersHome is just a website on the internet, nothing more, nothing less, but if it brings you anything positive, then that puts a smile on my face.

Hopefully we have another five years in us.

happy anniversary. I remember signing up with another name back in 06 but my focus was on a couple of other Packer boards. I am so glad this one has grown up like it has. I enjoy almost everyone's input.
Thanks for all the time you put in here.

kudos and slapnuts to you Kevin.

After the PF boom and the Feed boom, I had anticipated more than 200,000 posts by this time.
