Happy 7th Birthday, Heartbreakers!
It was only a few short months ago that Heartbreakers was reborn as a forum dedicated to geek culture, catering to a LGBTQ+ persons, cis women and PoC audience. But it was on this day SEVEN years ago that the idea to create a women's wrestling forum at a time when those were thought to be extinct was brought to life. All that we've managed to accomplish in the years to follow has been beyond both mine and my former co-owner's wildest dreams. And there's still so much more to accomplish now that myself, alongside current admins @Shoaib. and @Jake, decided to embark on a new journey and expand our message of inclusivity within niche fan bases. As usual, we would like to thank our loyal, beautiful community of members over the years for keeping us alive all this time and helping us grow into what we are today. And of course everyone who has ever been part of our staff, helping to keep things active and healthy.
My one wish for the future is just to keep thriving as we continue to bring new ideas to the table in order to make our community even better. Expect the continuation of our cutting edge role-playing game "New Gods", more competitions like the ongoing "HB Survivor", more discussions, more news and more regular countdowns, including a very special one to push us deeper into our new era...
More details to be announced really soon.
Thanks again everyone. You guys truly own my heart and I'm eternally grateful to have been graced with so many bright, unique individuals, helping me escape and overcome a lot of dark moments in real life. As a gift to you all, I will grant any member one free username change. Just please notify myself or a member of admin directly if you are interested. Also, please feel free to use this thread not only to wish us a happy birthday, but to pitch ideas to help keep our community exciting. I love you all and to many more.
Happy 5th Birthday, Heartbreakers! | A Look Back at the Past and the Future
When you put forth all the numbers that reflect HB's rich history, it becomes evident how far we've come since August 14, 2012 when Taylor and I set out to create a carefree place where a visible minority in the wrestling community can be heard. It's numbers like these that make you realize that through sheer passion, nurturing and effort, anything can be achieved. That's something I've learned and hope I can say the same for when I walk away and strive for more in the bigger world. But I think the most important number is 1,281 --- the number of members that without, none of this could have ever been achieved. I, as well as others behind the wheel, have expressed deep gratitude to all of you for making this possible and I don't know what else I could possibly say that hasn't been said with each passing year that HB has grown beyond compare. This forum has become a massive part of my life, so much so that I share things with a lot of you that I wouldn't even share with most in my day to day life and I sit here recovering from a sinus infection (following strep throat!), just wanting to say thank you from the heart for the millionth time. But what's next? That's the question myself and @Shoaib. have been asking each other as we see past goals of making women's wrestling matter be achieved, overall interest start to wane and members finding other avenues of social media for their voice to be heard. What I hope is next is that beyond myself, Shoaib and others who have called HB home for years, the forum will continue to prosper because there's still so much more that lies ahead and so much that has been put into this place already. But, as always, we're a community and it depends on you. So with that said, while wishing HB a monumental Happy 5th Birthday, share what this place has meant to you and if you feel another 5 years is yet to be written in the books/tell us what you hope is next.
Happy Birthday, Heartbreakers!

Happy Birthday to my other half and best friend @Michael Psyches It's your special day and even if you didn't want the attention I'm forcing it on you. I hope that you have a special day filled with love and family and awesomeness and ... and ... CAKE!
You are my absolute best friend and I could not imagine a day going by on this site and not having you be apart of it. So make the most of today because it's the only day that is actually all about you (despite what you may think otherwise). Love you
