Here we are. 5 years after Poliwager was started.

On this day, November 27, in 2008, I sat down at my computer on Thanksgiving and began working on a few small pages, notably the Happiness page (I say notably because I honestly don't remember a ton of what was first around back then.). This was done in iWeb, a program that used to be included with Macs for making quick and easy webpages and getting them online with my Apple account. The domain name wasn't at all official, so in January 2010, I learned HTML and CSS and completely rewrote Poliwager and then in May that year I bought the domain name Poliwager.net for it. After that, Poliwager started taking off more. Earlier, in April 2009, however, I created the Poliwager Forums, which were also under a free domain name that wasn't through Poliwager.net's either, and that was pretty successful the first year and a half until I moved the forums over to the Poliwager.net subdomain, Forums.Poliwager.net, which was a wonderful change. Also in 2010, the Poliwager Adoptables was started in June. And as they say, the rest is history. (If you're curious about more history of the site, please check this page out!)

Since that first day of Poliwager, we've hosted tournaments, played games together, adopted Pokémon together, hung out in the Chatterbox, and just had a great time. From the bottom of my heart, I'd like to say thank you, all of you, for helping make Poliwager a success, and having fun with everyone involved!

Now, let's pop open that famous Poliwager Champaign and have a party in the Poliwager House! :D
