Happy birthday, Massively. You've always been my favorite site to visit. I definitely cannot decide on my favorite anything. Some stuff is just a matter of opinion. But I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all of your hard work and commitment. Keep it up, you'll always see me here.

My favourite current writer is Eliot, closely followed by Beau, Rubi and Justin (in no particular order), but I also miss Sera a lot. Actually, one of my favourite memories was when she switched names. It was such a personal moment for her and amazing to see it talked about in such depth on such a relatively mainstream site about videogames. Yet she tied it in to the subject matter of the site without it seeming the least bit awkward.

I am an avid podcast listener and I have been reading massively and listening to the podcast for years and I remember feeling quite sad when I heard Zenke was leaving the show/site. However I also remember how excited I got when I heard Zenke's replacement was none other than the kid who was the host of Guildcast! At the time Guildwars was my current game of choice and I regularly listened to both shows.

Happy Birthday Massively, While I like Shawn better (Sorry Michael) what about bringing Zenke back to the podcast for old times?

Happy birthday!

Massively is one of my favorite sites and one of my favorite things on it is the daily grind. I'm always curious to find out the topic and the response. You have great writers and and my favorite writer is ... *drumrolls* ...actually I'm not telling, so every one can feel it might be just them! :)

Thank you for your hard work, I wish you many more happy bloggy years.

I gotta say that Massively is an awesome site. Everyday when I get home from work I sit down, open up my bookmarks. I then go to my MMO folder and open up my newsites. I always save Massively for last, the others I just skim over for information and the occasional forum post.

Massively though. I like to relax and read the news articles on whats happening in the MMO world. Even if its a game I have no interest in I still read most of the articles. They are well written and fun to read. Thanks guys you've been great with keeping me sane and calm after a days work.

Happy Birthday.

@Jasdemi

Well, the post lasted an hour before someone took a dump on it. That's pretty good!

Sometimes I wonder what magic this site possesses that keeps me coming back so many times a day.

Honestly, I'm here more than any other on the Internet. Whatever it is you guys are doing keep doing it.

Love you!

Hej! Happy birthday, my one true mmog news love! I've been reading you daily for about the last three years. Hard to pick out favourite moments because it's been a daily ride. I guess I have fond memories of Sera and all the crazy things she used to do. Hers was a really distinct voice here.

You've introduced me to new things time and time again, and made my online gaming experience about 10,000 more rich and fulfilling than if we'd never met. Beau continues to open my mind, Patrick continues to blow it with his scrupulously detailed Champs reports, and Rubi brings a warmth to everything she does. Karen's EQ2 reports are always a first-stop on my visits, and I love the way we disagree about so much. Shawn presides calmly over all, and I feel I can always trust you guys 100 knowing his hands are on the editorial mice. Every writer here brings something unique to the table and I love you all for it.

So thanks again for the memories, here's to many more!

All of you are awesome. This has been a great year for fascinating MMO coverage, and you guys have been doing a remarkable job. I probably spend more time on this site than is strictly healthy. If I checked to see how many times I visit in a day it would most likely scare me.

I suck at this kind of thing so HERE, I LIKE YOU A LOT, MASSIVELY. *leaves a cake and flees*

Happy birthday, and thank you!! :D

Happy birthday Massively !!
Thank you for everything. All features on this site have their own interest so no favorite topic, I like everything and that's all.

Happy b-day, Massively!

I'd been a casual reader before I joined in the posting fun a year ago, and this is the first and last site I visit every day.

On to the next four years!

Happy birthday! This is one of my fave sites to check out every day. Well done!

Over the years my favorite blogger was Sera Brennan, and I miss her a lot. She very gracefully addressed personal issues, yet kept things focused on gaming. I particularly enjoyed watching her live blog for charity one time.

And bring back One Shots!! Of course no-one clicked on it, there was no real content; but it was fun to get a peek at other games that I wasn't playing, or reminisce over games I had left.

Poor Tabula Rasa.

My favorite post was the one that picked my Christmas card as a contest winner back in 2007. I still use the swag I got from it... well, I still have the G15 keyboard; my ex has the mouse and headset.

Wow, four years. I don't even recall exactly how I found Massively, but I do remember coming across the first burgeoning posts as the writers proudly declared their ambition to become THE go-to site for MMO news.

At that time, I was on a RSS feed adding spree, and said, what the heck, what's one more news site, let's give it a shot and chuck it in the list.

Wasn't long before Massively rose right to the top of my feeds (bar one, Kill Ten Rats still wins, sorry.) I wouldn't know how to start my day without stuff to read from this site.

Thanks for the constant, reliable stream of MMO news that makes it so addicting to click on every day. Thanks for the passionate writing from all the bloggers - sure, I have my favorite authors, but I'm not telling, it's great that everyone has such distinctive voices, styles, preferences and aren't hesitant in sharing themselves - prejudices and all.

Thanks for thoughtful, even controversial posts, that cultivate the environment for such a great community of enthusiastic commenters - we may never agree, but it's the ensuing debates that make an already good article such great reads.

Happy 4th birthday, Massively and team!
