To begin the celebrations, the Annivsary Forum has been opened!

Join the forum and discuss your memories of UR and the journey to our One Year Anniversary, have general chats, talk HP, HIJACK! The forum will only be open for a limited time, so join the fun now!

(When the forum is closed, it will remain where it can be viewed, just not posted to.)

All the Admins of UR would like to thank each and every one of you and congratulate you. Without your support, this site would not be where it is today. We appreciate your patience, participation, and support more than we can ever explain. Eighteen months ago, a few authors broke away from the mainstream to begin building a site they personally envisioned and believed in. One year ago, that site opened its doors to the public and began its life. Now, with over 1700 members and over 1000 fics supported, the creators of thank you for everything you've let the site become. The Admins look forward to many more prosperous years and hope that we may continue to mold the site into what you want.

[[In light of the anniversary, sarinileni is currently in the Spotlight. If you're unfamiliar with the history of UR or why UR holds Sarina in a special spot, visit this page for a brief (page still in progress)synopsis of how UR came to be.]]

Thank you, Unknowableroom, and Happy Anniversary!
