If you see fireworks going off on this page, it's because the World of Royalty website is celebrating its 10th anniversary!
According to my records, I started the site on April 17, 1998. At that time it was located at a different URL (on Geocities). The site moved to the Royalty.nu domain on February 15, 2001.
All along, the site's visitors have helped by sending links, news, suggestions, corrections, encouragement, kind comments, and good wishes. Thank you all for showing me how many nice people there are in this world.
And now on to the celebration...
Celebrating 10 Years
I racked my brains trying to think of the best way to celebrate The World of Royalty's 10th anniversary. Finally I decided to show my gratitude to Royalty.nu community by making a donation to charity.
April 22 UPDATE: We've reached $200! I have just made an online donation of $200 to Oxfam, and I've asked Oxfam to send a card (via snail mail) to one of the network's members, Vasaborg. Thank you to Vasaborg for agreeing to represent the community this way. I would have a card sent to everyone if I could.
April 24: I've decided to close this down now because it's going slowly and I'm worrying about it too much, and that wasn't the original idea. Thank you to everyone who participated!
Help the World
