since herrdoktor offered to set up a Team Fortress 2 server (which is still up and running!), and just slightly less than that since the first version of the website went online.
Since then, the single best gang of gamers on the internet has grown prodigiously -- we're about 2000-strong now -- we've branched out into every nook and cranny of gaming, online and off, we've spun off a whole
of our own, donated thousands of dollars
to charity, shown more generosity to one another than I've ever seen on the web, had more damn fun than should be legal, and we still congregate at all hours of the day any given day of the week for funtimes and asplosions on our TF2 servers (and L4D2 servers (and Minecraft servers (and all our other game servers))) to this day.
I want to thank every single Mefight Club member for making this such a great four years, to thank Matt for this place, which started it all, and to thank cortex and jessamyn and everyone who keeps MeFi running for teaching this cranky old wonderchicken by their sterling examples how to build and run a successful community on the web. After four years, I'm almost starting to figure it out. Now if I could only make the web server stop pooping the bed
Mefight Club is awesome, games are fun, and we'd all love to see more Mefites and their friends and family join us
in our friendly, happy corner of the web. Gamers can be good people, too. Per astra ad rotato!
