This is a question Happy 10th Birthday B3ta

Ten years ago today we launched B3ta (well the version of it you'd recognise). Happy birthday B3ta! As a special one off please add your memories of B3ta here. E.g. How you found the site, or an early thing you saw on the site, maybe the people you've met or how the community is/was part of your life.

A professional lurker
Nearly ten years ago a friend sent me a link to b3ta - I think it was for Yomgaille's Un Lapin, or Joel's Frightened Boy. I was instantly hooked. It led to a fantastic world of Flash animations that were incredibly entertaining. Back then people approached the competitions with imagination and creativity - whatever the subject matter. It took me a couple of months to realise there was a message board behind the images, but when I found it I was hooked.

I can't remember how many bottles of Staropramen and packets of Jaffa Cakes I ploughed through while trawling the boards. My one regret is never taking the time to learn Flash and produce my own animations. It would have been futile though - I don't have a creative bone in my body.

So thank you to all those creative types who have kept me entertained over the years, and thanks to all the people who run b3ta. Here's to the next ten years!
