What a run! I'll be sending out a newsletter* on our 20th anniversary, which is May 29th. Post a note below to wish the community a Happy Anniversary -- and THANK YOU for being a part of it! :tentacle: :party:

I dug deep into the digital archives; here is the initial launch, such that it is :smile:

Trying come up with something new for the forum to mark the event but I have only been around since 2006 :old: . FWIW, here is a collection of my "artistic" contributions over the last 14 years

I love all these, always have. So clever. You also did a couple of of our TONMOCON event logos, like our last one -- it's funny that we did not end up getting to tour the ROV because it was out on a mission at the time!

For the acclaimed BBC documentary, "The Octopus In My House", our community members were contacted to discuss keeping cephs as a hobby:

I had no idea @DWhatley did the art for some of the emoticons on the site, they're great!
