oh, around a decade or so ago...
show user profile  Bolteon
i happened to find a certain website about 3d stuff that i had kinda gotten heavily into...

since then many things have changed... and about 11,888 replies... and 240 posts later i just wanted to post up and say thank you to this place.

without you guys (and some of you i've known for 10 years now!) i know i wouldn't have been driven as hard to keep learning and striving for bigger and better things.

and specifically; thanks to spoon for keeping this place alive for the better part of 1.5 decades.


and for fun, the first thing i ever made in 3d:

a bit different these days (i was going to do a spec piece just for the anniversary but i got flown out to florida to go work on a pair of nissan commercials!):

again, thank you.

and to those of you just starting... keep going.

-Marko Mandaric

Happy Tenth Anniversary bro!

Thank you for all your help.

This calls for a toast....or ten.

Marko, since I've been here -8 years or so?- you've been a cornerstone of this place. And a powerstation, too.Thanks for the time invested. You've teached tons to lots of us. Happy aniversary!

I had my Tenth Anniversary about a month ago. But I forgot to make a thread about it :(
Now I'll have to wait another 10 years to celebrate...

But yeah. I agree with Bolts! I don't know where I would be or what I would be doing if MF hadn't been around. Thank you, Spoon!
And thank you all members of the forum to make MF what it is. This is the one and only forum I've ever frequented.

Happy anniversary Bolts :)

One of the reasons why I love Maxforums is the dedication of you and the other mainstays of the place. When I first stumbled across MF in 2000 I thought - I want to learn what these guys do and to be able to contribute. For that reason I lurked a lot and learned the basics before logging in as a regular user, but I always had a shortcut to MF in my browser to.

You and the crew are a real inspiration. Keep up the great work.

Just kidding. I'm really pleased you have done so well, and that you haven't wandered away from this place.

Pulls out the whiskey and a blunt.
And hands it to my fellow anger management patient.
Always fun to reflect on how far you have gone Marko, always inspiring.

I was in fact telling my housemate last night that that was how I know I've been doing it for 10 years, MF is my basis apparently!

congratz people :) And yeah, good job to Spoon for keeping this place up and running for so long. I one day hope to be in Bolts shoes, especially if the Nissan commercials are the ones I'm thinking of (see the spam thread and KB's post) ;)

So funny how you people remember only what you want too.....

I remember a scared little on the streets,....gender confused....with no future.
Petty theft and selling "favors" just to make enough cash to buy cig's and a gallon of gas to huff.....

Watching Bolt's grow into a fine, young, heterosexual male has been a true inspiration to us all!
He's come so far,.......where will he be in another 10 years?

On a serious note: wow dude.....10 years,.....ha! Pretty cool man!
