This week in August marks the 10 year anniversary of the Nexus sites. I launched Morrowind Chronicles at the age of 15 back in August of 2001. What started as a general purpose news and information site for Morrowind has now spread in to a multi-site network of mod databases that are some of the largest modding sites in the world. I feel a great sense of achievement and pride for this great community which is a testament to some great games and some great modders. And what's best, I feel like I've only just started.
Looking back it's very easy to fall in to a nostalgic day dream of all the people that have come and gone over the years; some are still with us and lots have moved on in the constant ebb-and-flow of this community. Looking far, far, back I remember fondly my time working with the doomed MEMod team. Some of the best banter I've ever had. Feel free to share some of your experiences in this community.
