Happy New Year, I-A-B! [Pic]

…and that resolution? More sexy sit-ups like this guy.



OK, just wanted to write a quick something before I get too blasted this New Year”s Eve (and I plan on getting so wasted tonight).



First off, thanks to all of you who visited I-A-B, day in, day out–even when the servers were crapping out and the site got blasted with pop-ups and buttloads of ads. I”ve said it before and I”ll say it again: All I do is try to get less site-clogging ads on this site.


Yep, this year has been pretty rough. I-A-B”s loading time has really sucked as you probably know and if you”re a regular, you know some of the other monkey wrenches we”ve all had to deal with. All I can say is that I”m sorry and I”ll keep fighting the good fight to get things back to normal. There are very few things I love more than this I-A-B”s community–all I want to do is make the site better. If you can hang in there with me, I”ll do everything I can to improve things here.

On a positive note, the powers that be have deemed I-A-B worthy of a proper smartphone app. It”ll run much faster and it”ll be more dynamic in most aspects. I”ve tested it out and shown it to a few regulars–you”ll like it. It”s about 75% done. I”ll pimp the hell out of it here when it”s done. And yes, it”s free.


Secondly, a huge thanks to the I-A-B Mods that you”ve all come to know and love. Weeray, CobraKiller, DavyMid, Vitaly, AlmightyBob1, and a special thanks to Kitteh9Lives who fucking rocked the cashbah every day with hundreds upon hundreds of posts and helped me out on weekends when I wasn”t able to sit in front of a computer. She”s a true Internet saint… Saint Kitteh… really.


OK, that”s about it for 2012. Don”t worry though, there”ll be no dead site tomorrow. While every other site is recovering from their champagne hangovers tomorrow, I-A-B will be chugging along with piping hot content as it has every day for the last… I don”t know… however long it”s been. A long time, I can tell you that.



Love always, Fancy

A quick note from me, Fancylad, on the close of 2012 and the beginning of 2013… and one Fancy resolution.

    Hooray for IAB! And the IAB community!
    Can I have a chatroom password now? (Or is that fixed already?)

    I`ve already resolved to be more polite, a couple of months ago, so nothing extra-ordinary for "New Year" eh?

    How about: No more noise-making ads? :hopes:

    How about you resolve to be less of a douche and actually learn to write sentences with proper spelling and grammar?

    Doh, we love you really, fancylad. You and the mods do a great job of giving us things to bitch and fight about, and to relieve the monotony of many a boring hour.

    It`s already 2013 by some hours here, but to IABers everywhere, I wish you a happy new year when it`s time for you. :)

    I visit this site daily and have rarely posted, but in the spirit of New Years I thank you. I learn, educate, and laugh here. Thank you for some time off from my studies and life! To the kitties, puppies, and squirrels of the internets... And most of all to the education of the world!

I tip my hat to that person and Fancy too 4 luvin good bitches. Happy New Year you feckin freaks and all U other a$$holes on here that I enjoy soo much! I love U all; individually and as a group, no matter what U think of me :-P

    Sorry it took so long for me to get on here, but I just got home. I too would like to thank everyone for frequently visiting the site. If it werent for your brilliant submissions and incredible comment, I wouldnt have anything to do on my down time.

    I want to thank fancy for keeping the site up and running through another year , and hope to see it banging through many years a more.

    I have love for you all. Even those I have had a heated word or two with in frantic discussion.

    This community is amazing, and I wish nothing but the most wonderful off all things this world has to give for each and every one of you.

    To another wonderful year on IAB, on this planet, and in the world of the living in general.

    -Bottoms Up.

    Yep. Thanks for the amazing submissions guys, and thanks to fancy for ignoring almost all of them and putting his own garbage up instead.

    Now thats out of the way, lets hope 2013 is the best year ever. /drink

    I think a word of appreciation to Fancy is in order. You guys may not realize how hard he really works behind the scenes to keep things running and chugging along so we are all entertained.

    Here is too hoping we all survive another year! Best wishes everyone!

    @Naz14 "Fancy. I just realized... my "Member Since" date is just over two years older than yours. Do I get a prize???"

    Do you get a prize too if your "member since" date pre-dates the site`s creation date?

    Kitteh has contributed more than a fair amount of good chit. Fancy just keeps passing on the good stuff to post his stupidity. He may do a lot behind the scenes, but if so then he should stick to that. We would all appreciate more good content and less of the stuff that makes no sense.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR to all IABers, posters, commenters, admins, mods...

    Special thanks to Kitteh9lives, Gerry1of1 and McGuffin, you regularly make my day.

    I would so like to have a button to see all your postings and comments without having to look for them between other notes.

    Greetings from Luxemburg

    The App is a cool idea. That`s crossed my mind a few times while trying to access IAB with my phone which gets annoying. Get rid of that f*cking cuss word filter and we`ll be good to go!
