Happy Thanksgiving 2013!

Well it's that time of year again. If you live in the United States, then chances are today is going to be a big day for you. It is a day when most people get off of work and school, families and friends meet up, and everyone reflects back on the things they are thankful for as they eat a big meal. If that is your Thanksgiving tradition, that is. No matter what you do for Thanksgiving each year, the meaning of the holiday never changes. It is a day to remember what you are thankful for, and this year, I'd like to say thank you; to all of you.

Last year at this time, Netto's Game Room was a group on the website Capcom-Unity. We had around 600 followers of the group, but it really wasn't anything special. Every once in awhile members would look at our front page, or maybe read an article or two, but the blog itself was just very small. We had around four writers (only two of which made the jump to our new location; other than myself), and a lot of our work just generally went unnoticed. We weren't a big group, and we were basically unknown, but at least we were something. The people who did come by liked what we had to offer, and everyone had fun running it. This year however, that has all changed.

Last summer we made the jump to the world wide web. We broke away from Capcom-Unity, and we became what you see here today. Now sure, we still have a long way to go before we become "big," but I would still like to say thank you; to all of you. Thank you readers for stopping by, if it wasn't for you, this blog would be nothing, and I would also like to thank everyone who stepped in to help out. What started with a small team of three, has now grown to a team of eight, and I couldn't be anymore thankful for that. What was once a blog with only a few daily visitors has turned into one which receives thousands across our different sections. Thank you everyone! For everything!

It's been a lot of fun being a part of the site, and I can't wait to see what the future holds. I'm thankful to you, Netto, for allowing me to be a part of the site, and thank you to all the readers who come here. It's a joy writing for you all.
