Happy 7th Birthday Renegades

Posted by on Apr 19, 2013 in Minecraft, WinMX


Today marks the 7th consecutive year that our Renegade community has been operating. I am so very proud to have been here for the past 6 of those years and I’d like to say thank you to everyone who has been a part of this journey.

Over the past few years I have done a retrospective to plot our successes and growth and each year we have outdone the previous. This birthday is no exception. Our chat room now sees an average of 130 to 150 users logged in concurrently which is an astounding feat for any WinMX chat room especially in todays climate with the ongoing WinMX attacks which have so devastated the larger community over the past two years.

This ongoing success isn’t down to luck but hard work and strategic investment. From our software, the staff we choose to moderate the community and the administrators who keep the infrastructure scaling. Our most recent additions are the retooled RENBOX servers and their centralised website which have been even more popular than we ever imagined. The work by Josh and Hollow on the latest iteration of our RENBOX service has had a huge impact on our community and we are immeasurably grateful to them both.

On a personal note, I (Pri) have especially enjoyed working with the both of them on RENBOX. It is good to work with others and be able to trust in other developers to do things to the quality level everyone expects. This too wasn’t a relationship built out of luck but out of determination, long discussions and lots of productive arguments about the way things should look, function and be implemented. The three of us all have our roles and the culmination of our teamwork has brought you the fantastic tools you now enjoy every day.

Our colloberation is ongoing and we will continue to bring you great new things under the Renegades brand this year and the next.

Thanks for reading and helping us to celebrate our 7th Birthday!

p.s. as part of our birthday celebration there are several birthday achievements you can get only today by being in the room. We have also added 30 new achievements to the bot today which you can unlock at any time, not just today.
