Here's some trivia for you all.

Known to only a few, and mostly veteran association fans, the original Linkin Park Association (Version 1.0, current is 2.0) opened today on Omar's birthday, back in 2002. When we opened it a year ago, we thought it would take a few years till we got as big as the huge sites of the time (PMA and LPAlliance) and now only a year after we opened our small, barely filled website we now have Version 2 up on a fast .com server, and average 4000 visits a day and over 5 million hits a month, pretty much being as big as the websites we looked up to only a year ago.

Plus 5 million hits, just so you guys can see how big you've helped us, our cjb.net site only had FOUR THOUSAND when we opened up lpa.com.

With your help we DWARFED our cjb.net hits only a month after opening, which as embarassing as it is to admit? Made me scream like a girl. :lol:

You visitors are truly the best people I've ever known in my life. Sure I'll never get to meet all of you, but I consider all of you my best friends as you've helped this website so much over the past 5 months.

Never did I think you guys would like this website so much, or that Linkin Park as well as LPU and LP.com staff, notice it out of the millions of Linkin Park fansites out there.

Your dedication to the site has inspired us to work harder every month to give you guys the best news, exclusives and images, and we will CONTINUE this for as long as possible, because you truly deserve it, you guys rock.

So here's to ONE YEAR of The Linkin Park Association being in business, let this be the start of many years of continued service to the Linkin Park community. :teehee:

Congrats :lol:.

LPA came out with a big bang and continued to dominate conversations of LP websites, and the link was everywhere on forums such as the LPMB! It's amazging that in only one year you've guys done so much.

*Pats the staff on the back*, you guys have excelled beyond anything I could do, and I love the fact you guys are still going strong. Keep up the good work B).

Congratulations. Even though this is pretty big fan base, and you have amazing content. I say this:

Don't let this go to your head. Most sites don't make it one year. But you still have a long way to go.

We won't.

We hate sites where the webmasters treat the visitors like #### when they are messaged(ive seen some), and act like they are higher then the average fan.

Thats not our intention. We are a community, and we are going to stay that way.

I had never even heard of the LP Association until I saw the link promoting the forums in Mark&#39;s signature over at the LPMB. I clicked it, and I didn&#39;t stop asking Omar if I could help for 2 or 3 weeks, and finally he cracked. :lol:

Rawk on. &#092;m/

Edit: Here&#39;s an interesting fact: I don&#39;t have the LPA on my favorites. :lol:

IT&#39;S BEEN A YEAR ALREADY?&#33;

Wow. That went fast.

I remember the first time I came here, nearly every member that was there at the time new each other since it was so small. There were also very few members active at the same time.

Now it&#39;s like *WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH*

It&#39;s been great here on the LPA ever since it was first started up and was just a small dinky forum&#33; I might not of been here right at the start...but meh it was close.

ok I&#39;m rambling now but still. I hope the LPA can have another year as sucessful as this one, I&#39;ll do my best to make sure it happens ^_^

Nice work all...thanks a lot :)

some of you might be mistaken, the lpassociation.cjb.net site opened on this day one year ago. the lpassociation.com site opened on October 24th, 2002, and these LPA forums opened on July 14th. just to clear that up that this domain has only been here for 7 months, :P.

i remember the old LPMB days, me and Derek got in a big fight over whether he had taken a 16 second clip off the end of "Pts.Of.Athrty" and calling it an "exclusive 16 sec clip on Enth E Nd". turns out i was wrong, they had actually acquired it before anyone. then i met Alex on the forums, and he just asked me one day to become a part of the site (i still don&#39;t know why. :P) and i said yes. best choice ever.

And now so do I, after my trusted colleagues informed me.

It was originally intended for the opening of the site, to bring in a lot of visitors but then it was decided to keep it as an exclusive later on.

Then we wanted it for the newsletter, but that never truly took of as we planned so noww...

One day after the anniversary of the LPA, I am proud to present to you:

Congrats LPA. Better be around here in 3 years or you will get wacked with a trout.

When I said "Better be around here in 3 years", I was reffering to the site. "You" reffers to the staff. Common sense, really.

1. I found this site searching on Google for that fake version of SIB on Kazaa (Google rox&#33;)
2. Hey, who founded this site?
3.LPA is waay better than linkinpark.com, both in design and news.
Even though it&#39;s unofficial
