6 Year Anniversary Congratulations

These congratulations and comments were assembled by Madcat at the DigiFriends' mud pages. I had no idea what he was planning, and it was a lovely surprise when they, at the day of the jubilee, told me where to go to read them. I was, and am, very touched. Thank you all. :) -Vitastjern

Madcat

I hope you like this list of comments Vitastjern. I thought it was a good idea to show you our appreciation of the MUD, and your hard work to keep it running ;)

Northern Lights........what can I saw, its the ultimate way to relax, chat to nice people, and hack 'n' slash a few mobiles for a laugh. I've been playing for almost 4 years and I still can't get enough of it :) No matter where I go, I hope to always have such a cool place to visit.

Magenta

As a regular and frequent user of Northern Lights since November of 1995 I am grateful to Vita for providing a place which has given me many outlets. A place of refuge, a place to play, a place where I've met many good people, and a place where I even fell in love. I cannot imagine how different my life and the lives of my friends would be without this virtual haven. I look forward to its presence for many years to come.

Errot

Thank you Vita! For late night chats about horses on the test mud. For strange conversations in English over dinner on Absolon's cell phone. For the never taken offer of a northern visit. For working so hard to create a great (and may I add--my first) MUD! Grattis!

Morwyyn

Congrats on 6 years :)

Andrei

Just so you know... the anount of fun and happiness is got from NL in the past 2 1/2 years is quite incredible... It has made a big difference to me... even to some aspects of my RL (including my grades *grin*).. so.. does that mean I'm addicted? ;) Anyway, I think this is a great idea of Madcats to let you know how much me and everyone else appricates NL and the hard work you (and other powers too I guess) have put in to making it the great place it is today :) Personally, I hope NL lasts forever :)

*

Diogenes

Almost since its inception in 92, I have been a part of the ever growing NL family. But from the very start NL has always been a place where this feeling of family has been fostered. Kindness and beauty, acceptance and laughter, these are coupled so that we can play together in an atmosphere of intellectual stimulation and light humor. And without Vitastjern, our "bright white star" (I think thats how it translates), we must realize that none of this would be possible. It is her open arms that have made me, my yaks and everyone else welcome in her home. So on the occasion of our sixth anniversary, I would like to say: Thank You.

For the tjalknol, for the cortege, for any amount of wines and spirits (and then some more) and primarily for brain damage done by one or two stuffed animals: Ozymandius whacks you over the head with a stuffed moose, yelling 'MOOSE!' Now please reread this message 150 times.

Congratulations! Og very proud of Vita and NL!!!

SpinalTap

The second mud I tried, way back just a few short months after it was started, when I was but a humble undergraduate student. At the time I found it a difficult but rewarding experience. I eventually left university, and thought I would never return to the world of mudding again. A few years later I returned and to my surprise NL was still there and stronger and better than ever. Other muds have come and gone, but NL really is the epitome of all that is good in mudding. As long as NL keeps going I will count myself lucky to have seen it evolve into something quite special. Congratulations Vita.

*

Palin

Some people are white. Some people are black. But most of them are pink. Even though Northern Lights is mostly white letters on a black screen, it is as colorful and vivid place as any I know of. Not all the hours I've "wasted" on NL have been well spent, but I've had lots of fun and made lots of good friends. Thanks and Congratulations Vita!

*

porcellina

Six years, eh? wow....youve done a great job. Thanks for the playground...i know i've enjoyed it, although i've only been playing a couple of months;) aleaha, my mother, is braindead and unavailable for comment at the moment, for she is in louisiana...but i'm sure she would wish to tell you congrats and a thousand thanks. thanks again, porcellina

*

Celine!

Darling!!!!!! I think it's great that you have managed to get this far with the Mud... they say that abers have to evolve... and You've proved that that's all poppycock. So shimelfinny to them, and hooray for Tuss!
Mizzysnuggles, Celine!

Tempus

Congratulations Vita for 6 years of providing the consistently best organized, most stable, friendly, and fair mud on the net. The sense of fairness, and imagination that you and the NL powers possess , continue to set the standard for all muds to follow. ++TeMpUs++

Ithor

Six years is an amazingly long time for a mud, especially an aber, and much the credit for NL's longevity must go to you Vitastjern. Northern Lights has changed my life, probably more than most would guess. Nearly always for the best, and for that I thank you.

*

Setzer

Northern lights is the best mud i have ever played. Thanx vitastjern!!

*

S{emo|ome}m

6 years! WOW! And I've been here, what... 4 years? FOUR YEARS? Goddess! Anyway its been fun, thanks for every minute of it.

*

Beyonder

NL- One of the best muds out there, i'm glad that she started the mud, my mud time is very well worth it. So i won't stop mudding in the first place :)

*

Micke

Best Wishes, Micke

Dane

Myself and Zora met on NL a few years ago, since then Ive been treated to swedish delights such as decorating Twigs at easter and and falling down hills of snow with planks attatched to my feet. And we now live together very hapily in England as Man and Cook .. and intend to stay that way ... So on the 6th Aniversary Vita ... .thanks from myself and Anna ..may our children want to kill you :-) .. xx

*

Mikki

Congratz 6th year anniversary!! I remember when I started running on NL.. I didn't understand what powers mean at that time.. I was a little heroine having long long battles wielding a pick.. I spent several nights to get to the level 4.. One night, I got killed by the White Fang in Braidwood and lost all the points that I made through several nights..I typed user.. there was the Goddess on the top.. whoaaa.. I was wondering how many nights I need to spend to become Goddess.. I asked Vita, "Hi.. How long time have you been running to level to the Goddess?" I forgot what Vita replied at that time.. Sometime later, I realized that it was a very silly question. :) Happy Birthday to Northern Lights!!

Grahzac

ONLY on NL can we find... an arena dominated by an over-sized purrer a king capable of transmuting human flesh.. .. or.. a ticklish tree? ONLY on NL can we... be thrashed with a sheep get into a fight regarding an oversized reindeer who can jump higher and run faster than the local horses and still gets more style points change sex cux ONLY on NL can we miss... sunsets, sunrises and everything inbetween..... and a cat that used to be a kitten after all. :) (We miss you Wez!) For a fantastic 6 years of fun, the one and only Grahzac lange leve NL!

Thanks for six great years of maintaining NL, adding cool new zones, and putting up with the trials and tribulations that mortals (and wizards) offer! - Andrew

Asterix

Congratulations -- six years and you still devote time to the MUD. Well done.

munch

Never Spoken to you, but have been mudding here since 94 (ish) Lots of fun, hours of sleepless nights in lonely computer centres at uni, not getting any work done during the day at work, in fact i could probably hold you responsible for failing my exams and ruining my entire life! Keep it up !! :o)

VyStar

Congratulations on Northern Ligth's 6th birthday !!! Mudding has proven to be a very engaging activity for me. Not only is it an environment that is exceptionally well-suited to my need for self-expression, I also find that it is quite educational at times. That is, when we're not going off on some wild romp on the chatline, of course. I very much like Vita's way of running the mud. She has this 'EarthMother' quality to her that I think you need to run a place like Northern Lights. And patience, also a useful asset for a God on a mud. Imagine folks, when she's sixty-something, she'll be a living legend in the global mudcommunity. If the doctor still allows it, we'll have more than one stiff drink to celebrate it :) To all the powers, wizards and mortals who feature in this tableau vivant, my warmest greetings.

I've roamed this realm for many years in search of Nirvana. One day I too hope to be one of the exhalted ones, an IMMORTAL. May this realm exist in perpetuity. Hail Vitastjern, Hail ErIC. May their reign be long and their power infinite. HELL OR PLUNDER, DOGBROTHERS !!

Tanya

It's been a long long ride, and NL's been around to withstand more than any other Aber - that's for sure! Wishing you many more years. Sincerely, Tanya (Eight years and counting -- whooee!)

Crimefighter

Congrats on keeping the mud going for this long! Many muds are lucky just to have just one runner, but somehow you keep the players coming back for more! Keep it up!

Cyrilaan, formerly known as Legolas

What to say, what to say.. first off, congratulations, Vitastjern, on constructing one of the finest MUDs of any type on the Internet. It is obvious to any player that takes the time to look that a tremendous amount of blood, sweat, and tears has gone into the construction of Northern Lights. I myself frequently use NL as the goal that we try to reach in terms of player enjoyment of the game. To that end, from all of us that have enjoyed what you and your compatriots have built, I would like to say thank you. I'm not sure what else to say, so I guess I'll shut up now.. hehe... imagine THAT. ;)

*

Hex

I want to use this occasion to thank you, Vitastjern for your dedication to Northern Lights. It is a direct effect of your work that the place is somewhere you can always go to meet kewl people, I can't remember the times (but it is many) I have gotten help on some problem (even RL ones) from one of my fellow "inmates". Thank you for keeping the place and the spirit alive.

*

Luckyspin

Hey Vita! Well done for keeping it all going! I admire you for staying open this long and remaining at the reigns! Here's to the next six years. *hugs*

*

Jeffrez

I always remeber the yearly debate we seem to have regarding wizrunners and how they monopolise resets. The first time it surfaced was when myself, Reefs (who sadly no longer has email connections) and MT still ran loads ...oh yeah...and of course a certain Morph-type character too... Still...wizrunners?...we rokk :o)

Galadim

OK... From one divine entity to another: CONGRATS! Now... As reward for this nice gest, I would appreciate if you frobbed me to DemiGod... ;) May the JIHAD be with you (for now)! Galadim, Divine God-Emperor of the Universe

Shadowstorm

Heyas, Vita! Wow, 6 years already! It seems like only days ago that you beat me to wizard on Butler. (Not that I'm bitter or anything ;) I know I don't visit NL as much as I could these days, but it sure is nice to know you're always there :) May you have many, many more happy and prosperous years!!!

Morton

Thanks for your efforts in keeping NL a friendly and welcoming place.

Eggplant

I've only been playin on NL for about 2 and a half years, but what a great time it has been. Thank you for taking the time to make nl a sanctuary of fun. As much pain as it must be, I really appreciate the effort and time that you put into nl, even when it goes down, it will always be a great memory!

*

Galadriel

Hi Vita! I'm sorry that I won't be able to be at the celebration, but I'll be at a wedding (I know, I know, I shouldn't let real life start taking over my mudding). Anyway, I just wanted to say that I've really really enjoyed being on Northern Lights. I've met wonderful people, had a lot of laughs, and spent a lot of late nights talking to wonderful people. Thanks for all of the memories.

*

Porenz

I make it to AppWiz - and get killed by every wizard in sight. Tricked, fooled, is there no end? I hope not. The game, the people, the policy,the lot, NL is great. It looks like a lot of hard work, but from where I stand, it's worth it. Congratulations, and Thanks.

*

Omni

Happy anniversary! From your favourite "hunk"-ster Omni!

Happy Anniversary may NL long continue =o)

*

Marat

I've lurked a lot on Northern Lights over the years under this name and others (not sure if any more me's still exist), but I never seem to have time to really PLAY much. From what I have seen it's a great mud, and I hope it'll survive for many more years. With so many good people involved, I'm sure it will.

Urmel

>tickle vitastjern All the best wishes for the future (mud & rl).

VaMpIrE

What can I say??? Northern Lights is easily the greatest MUD going, I've loved every moment of it and look forward to another 6 years of fun... and run by the nicest Goddess of them all...

*

kalzar

Six years. Not bad for an Aber, I'd say. Congratulations Vita, it's been a fun couple of years I've played on NL. Now an archwiz and coder, I try to help keep NL a high quality Aber, and will do so for many years more. 10 years is only 4 years away! :-)

*

Vita

I found it. Hahahaha.
[I have no idea who wrote this entry, but it certainly wasn't me since I had no idea about the existence of this congrats page... :) -Vitastjern]

*

Hal

Well, guess everything has already been said since there were like 59 people before me!!! So I guess I better just say that the mud you have created has inspired me in many ways to continue writing. I am currently working on a story about NL and I guess I can't finish by this annniversary. Maybe till next year. Anyway, happy anniversary and good luck for the next 6 to come. Congratulations!!

*

jj and awn

being on the mud has been a lot of fun. i never seem to get anywhere and get really frustrated, but at the same time it is enjoyable meeting and talking to some very nice people. people tell me i'll figure out how to do quests after a while. but in the meantime, it's funny and silly and engrossing. we all owe you a lot because you must have put an awful lot of time into developing northern lights and also in keeping it going. thank you, anna.

ErIC

Wheehaaah.... the best mud around. :) But I guess that's obvious.

*

Compu

Great Mud!! It's been 4 years since the first time I played in there (I'm still on level 5, but that's because I'm too busy to play every day) and the game is still funny for me. I can't imagine the effort it was (or it's still being) to build and manage this game. Congratulations!

*

Daydream

Well, I don't have much to say, but I am really glad that this mud is here.. and.. Happy 6th!!

*

Walker

Well I am sure you know, NL is great. It offers everything,action, adventure, magic and romance. And if I do not wanna play, I can chat. Thanks to NL I have met a girl that I love, now what else can one ask for. NL is truly great, let's keep it up for several years longer.

*

Speechless

Long time no see, that's what Spain does to you.
