|Congratulations Michael, but most of all, thank you!
I found AC in June of 2002 Thank God! When phobia went offline unannounced, I was like a heroin fiend in need of a fix because the acro bug had bitten me baaaaaad. I don't exactly remember when phobia went offline but it seemed like over a year and in 2002 I was lucky enough to find this oasis.

Thank you for Acrochallenge. This game provides a platform for insightful, hilarious banter that helps keep the world at bay temporarily. I daresay that acroing is a new artform, born of the confluence of temporality and novel topic prompts. Happy Birthday, AC!
Peace, Love, bilbolives

|Thanks guys - I think you're the remaining 8 people playing AC on a regular basis :)
I think AcroPhobia went offline in May of 2001. AcroChallenge came out of the 9/11 attacks. Business (Beacon Computers at the time) came to a complete standstill and I needed to learn new skills. My brother, Chris, suggested an AC replacement.
6 weeks later the first, really horrible version of AC was released to the world - there was much rejoicing.
I don't know if anyone remembers, but someone was trying to make an AcroPhobia clone and had been promising a release for months. They tried to make it too good.
I went for the quick and dirty approach to get the product out to market first and it worked. I learned more than just a couple of development languages with AC.
Fast-forward 15+ years and Chris owns Beacon Computers, the skills I learned from AC helped me leap-frog into a wildly successful endeavor and (don't hate) but i'm getting ready to retire at 46/47 years old.
So, if anyone has to give thanks to AcroChallenge, it's me - even though I can't play the game for shit.

|There's more than just us playing, Michael. I don't see any of the WNA regulars here, and I know there are others. You're more popular than you think. :-)
By the way, if you ever want to play, I'm a bottom feeder. I'd give you a run for your money for the last place. But seriously, please join us at WNA Monday 9:30 pm eastern, or Wednesday 8:30 pm eastern. I'm sure I'm not the only one who would get a kick out of playing with you.
