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. :)
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 ;)
Congratulations and thanks for giving us a great MUD
Congratz on your 6th anniversary :) and thanx for the many hours of
fun i've had and hope to have on NL.
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.
6 Years eh? Long time! Well Ive always, (ok not always.. i was a holy
terror a few years ago) had a great deal of respect for Northern
Lights. its quite an accomplishment and a very stable place. Heres to
Another 6 years, or more. Keep up the good work.
Gratinerar å det väldigaste till 6-årsdagen!!!! Det har varit 6 mycket
skojiga år, med muddande, supande i Luleå, supande i Stockholm,
supande på Gotland.... Hoppas på minst lika många NL-år till!!
Thanks for a wonderful mud! I hope this mud will last forever.
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.
Congratulations on 6 years of excellent mudding from sombody who nearly
remembers it opening! Best of luck ...and heres to many more years of
cybernetic linkdeaths and chat.
Here's to the best mud out there! Congratulations on NL's sixth
anniversary, one of many many more to come!
Thanks for making this the best mud ive EVER been on. I love it
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!
Congrats, Vita, on 6. *grin* One of these days, we've just got to
remember to get more sleep in our lives. =) Jon
Congratulations on the 6th year anniversary. I spend most of my free
time there and I enjoy it so much. So Thank You!
I just wanted to say that vita is a nice person and I really love
Northern Lights and my gratitude for her letting us use her mud free
of charge it is really a nice surprise to come home and relaxe on NL
and not have to pay an other bill :-) Congrates to 6 great years :-)))
Congrats on 6 years :)
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 :)
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!!!
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.
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
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,
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
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++
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.
Northern lights is the best mud i have ever played. Thanx vitastjern!!
6 years! WOW! And I've been here, what... 4 years? FOUR YEARS? Goddess!
Anyway its been fun, thanks for every minute of it.
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 :)
Grats On the Anniversary Vita!! I just wanna say that it was youre mud
that made me begin mudding, and its the funniest thing i´ve ever
done. I´ll join the party if i can, Otherwise, Happy Anniversary!!!
Best Wishes, Micke
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
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!!
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
Congratulations -- six years and you still devote time to the
MUD. Well done.
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)
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 !!
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!)
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!

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. ;)
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.
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
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)
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
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!!!
Thanks for your efforts in keeping NL a friendly and welcoming place.
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!
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.
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
Happy anniversary! From your favourite "hunk"-ster Omni!
Happy Anniversary may NL long continue =o)
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.
>tickle vitastjern All the best wishes for the future (mud &
Happy 6th Anniversary...... :) Thanks for the best MUD around
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...
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! :-)
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... :)
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.
Wheehaaah.... the best mud around. :) But I guess that's obvious.
Thanks Vita for all the good times... THE SHEIK
hi vita congrats and thanks for all the help you've benn giving me on
the mud i found it usefel i've even completed one quest (elven school)
thanks for the help.
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
Well, I don't have much to say, but I am really glad that this mud is
here.. and.. Happy 6th!!
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
Long time no see, that's what Spain does to you.
Hmm, I think I forgot the congrats, so.... Congratulations
(grattis!!!) Hurra! Hurra! Hurra! Hurra! *flowers*
