@U2 is 13 years old!
« on: October 22, 2008, 09:45:17 PM »
@U2 turns 13 on Thursday!

I've always said that when it's our birthday, it's your birthday, too -- so please, have some cake or a cupcake on us. :) Any success we enjoy is a direct result of great readers like you who contribute to the site in so many ways, from news tips to sharing photos ... from giving us constructive criticism to making us smile with a kind email ... from sending in a reply to our Question of the Month feature to leaving comments on our blog and writing posts here in the Forum.

Feel free to wish us a happy birthday in this thread if you're so inclined, but we'd also like your thoughts and ideas on what we can be doing more of, doing better, or not doing at all. This is the time of year when we start making plans and goals for the next calendar year, so why not tell us what's on your mind? You've got our ears....

::: congrats Matt.

@U2 was not the first U2 related web site I found, but It was the one I keep all the time in my old PC (1999). Loved all the articles on the Collectors Corner (now I'm one of them)

On those years, together, @U2 + U2wanderer were the places to visit everyday before the official site, and still I take a look everyday thanks to the mailing list.

FELICIDADES AMIGO
Keep the good Work.  ;D

I had to wait until midnight to wish you a happy birthday!  ;D

Thanks for being the greatest and friendliest website in the world!

You've been my homepage since I bought my first computer and I wish you the best next 13 years!

I look forward to celebrating your birthday by reading U2 Diary very soon!

Thanks for everything Matt, and the rest of the wonderful @U2 staff!

WOW!  I had no idea you'd been around for so long.  This was the first U2 fan site I found where people were really nice and welcoming.  Thanks for all the work you do keeping us informed.  I've noticed that other fansites use you guys as their primary source for breaking U2 news!!

HAPPY B- DAY :D

I first found this site in early 1998. At the time I did not have internet nor did I ever think I would. Once I found this site I signed up with AOL within a month. Seriously, this site is the reason I got online. Way better than U2's official site. Cograts and looking forward to watching this site grow up.

Well done all at @u2.

It's been the most visited site I go onto, since around 2000, it's the place  I post most often on, and it's also a place I have got to know some great people, it's a place I have had some very heated discussions, some long arguements and some great laughs. It's been a place I have learned a lot about a subject matter I love.

Of the several music fansites I have been on it is quite clear this site has a very high calibre of staffer, who check their stories, verify their stories. Kinda less bull and more balls. They also do great, well researched and interesting columns.

Happy birthday  @u2 - my favourite cyber friend !!!
