[Featured]: TONMO.com - 20th Anniversary!!

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!

I also made it into an sure how it will look reduced I could not attach the .ico file so would have to send via email if you want it (The icon I made is 96x96 if that is too large let me know) or you can convert the png on-line here: ICO Convert - Create Icons From PNG & JPG Images Online

I can also change colors -- to an extent. The graphic is actually made from a font so there are more limitations than for actual graphics.

Congratulations Tony! I am SO proud to be a part of this amazing community! I have expanded my knowledge base and skills considerably because of TONMO! I’ve made friends for life, I’ve taken what I’ve learned here and used it to help educate about cephalopods. My daughters have been inspired at our conventions, their lives have been touched by so many amazing ideas. I just can’t thank you enough, Tony, for the difference TONMO has made to my life!!! I never would have kept an octopus- my lifelong dream- if this community didn’t exist!

LONG LIVE TONMO.com!!!

Just a lurker here for lo! these many years, but I wish TONMO a happy anniversary!

EDIT: That said, I require more giant squid and even more colossal squid. Just saying.
