<3 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WORD NERD HOME!!!

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest

On June 11th, 2008, the "Rocking the Vote for DC" forum was transformed into the "Home of the Word Nerds". Today is our first anniversary!!!

The WaveHappy Birthday!The Wave


To properly celebrate our first year of life, we are inviting all of you to a party chat on today from 7 to 12 pm EST and also to leave your impressions here.

But that's not the end of the festivities we have planned! We are going to give out 5 gifts to be raffled among our members, consisting of $ 20 Amazon gift cards each!!! One of the gifts is going to be awarded among members who join our chat on today and the other 4 among all our members. Joy dance


Some reflections:

What was once only wishful thinking, or at best, a vision some David Cook's fans had, became a reality a year ago. However, never in our wildest dreams did we dare to expect that this "Home" away from home we were opening would grow and flourish the way it did, having nearly 3,700 members and more than 728,000 posts a year from that day!

For most of us, the moment David uttered the words "I'm a huge Word Nerd" was like being struck by lightning and made us take a closer look at that singer from whom we had only listened to one or two songs. So we adopted the term "Word Nerds" to represent David Cook's fanbase in the AI boards. At that time, we were only that, a fanbase.

During the last year, we've become much more than just a fanbase and the term Word Nerd now defines a community. We laughed, cried, got angry, screamed, danced, drooled, sang, gave back, shared, helped and so much more... and we did it all together!

So thanks to each and everyone of you for making this the bestest place to be Awww Love And in the words of our very own idol, David Cook, being here together is our daily anthem, so let's sing along...

It’s a daily anthem
Would you sing my song at the top of your lungs
And we’ll all sing along, we’ll all sing along


Whoa!!!Whoa!!!Whoa!!!Whoa!!!Whoa!!!

It's amazing that a year has gone by already Shocked since we were finally able to transform the RTV forum into the Home! Even before David won, we were making plans to do this transformation as we knew that winning or not, he would have a great career and we were behind him 100%.

Now a year after that, we have become a tight, caring, funny (somewhat crazy) community! Thanks to all for being a part of it!

Happy Birthday to the Home!


What a great year this has been. I've made so many new friends here... been privledged to meet and travel to David's concerts with some, others I only know through our conversations... but I do feel like I've gained a second family... all of you!

Thank you to the Founders for starting this place, and to all of you for helping to make it so special. And of course to David, who is the reason it all came about.

I wish us many more happy years together here, as we follow not only David's career, but the paths our lives take us on.

Happy Birthday, Word Nerd Home! Happy Birthday, Word Nerd Home! Happy Birthday, Word Nerd Home!

Thank You Word Nerd Home!!! It's been a great crazy year. One of the craziest years of my life. But I love it and wouldn't want it to have been any other way.

I have made great friends here and met many of you over the past few months.

Can't wait for the chat tonight....I might be a little late, because the boys have a t-ball game tonight. I'll be there as soon as I can though.

Wow, one year already since a ton of us were sent to banned camp on the AI boards for promoting this site! Oh, the memories...

One year later, I still love coming here. Not only for the latest David news, but for some of the great posts that people make here. Everybody feels comfortable with everybody else here, and that makes a site a home. Smile

Has it really been a full year since I lost my mind? Razz

I remember being so intrigued by this David Cook guy and remembering how his fans called themselves "word nerds". So I literally Googled "David Cook Word Nerds" and this site was the very first link on the list. And I've been here ever since! I've met some amazing people, been on some wild trips, and had one hell of a great time since June 17, 2008. This is my one-stop-shopping place for all things David-related. I've tried multiple times (unsuccessfully!) to wean myself off of here, but I always find myself right back in that David Discussion thread!

Happy Birthday, WNH! Happy Birthday! Here's to another year of insanity and fun! Cheers!!

Happy Birthday WNH!


Thanks to all who made this site possible. Last year, after Season 7 ended and the participation on the AI Boards started to peeter out, including the DC forums, it was such a relief to find a new home for us DC enthusiasts! No other DC site can rival this one, simply because the design, format, content and the people here are simply the best! Here's to many more years of enjoying and sharing! Group Hug1

Aww.. crap. I wasn't ready to cry today! Crying non-stop

What is a year at the Home for me? I used to refer to it as "an escape from reality," but hey... nothing is more REAL to me now than the friendship I've found here. It IS my reality.
I always consider myself as an expressive person, but I think this past year, I've demonstrated much more emotions than the years before combined. All the tears of joy, of sorrow, even of laughter, and the laughter itself... all the craziness, the confusion, questions, answers... smile, happiness, regret (of missing any Cookie crumbs)... The friends I made (and still am making)... the mods I respect so much... y'all who posted amazing news, articles, pictures, videos, useful links... posters, lurkers, visitors... I LOVE YOU ALL!! Blow Kisses

Happy Birthday, Word Nerds Home! Happy Birthday!

Here's for many more years to come:

WOW! A whole year already. That is so crazy. I can't thank everyone enough for all the fun times and great people I have met on here. All I can do is thank the word nerds who told me about this site because I can't imagine not having found it and how alone I would feel with out it. I know that if I miss a day on here I will feel left out from my second family, that sometimes feels like even closer than my real family. lol But I have to say that I love you all and I so can't wait to be here for the second anniversary next year.

Has it really been a year since I got an invite from my AI dot com inbox to join a site made especially for Word Nerds, those dedicated, witty, silly, sometimes naughty, fun and devoted fans of David Cook? Shocked

This place has become my home on the web. It's a place to continue on with the zaniness and amazing memories of the AI site. I love it here! The mods do an awesome job running things. Everyone who contributes - whether it be news links, pictures, videos, creative writing, personal reflections, you all make this place what it is. I have made lots of new friends here and I'm in it for the long haul.

Thank You! for everything. Group Hug2Blow Kisses

Wow, I can't believe it was a year ago today that I signed up for this place! I remember being on the AI forums when everyone started talking about leaving. I am so glad that I got the invite and signed up here. I have met some really nice people from here, both on the boards and in person. Like some of you, this is my go to place for everything David Cook. I also know that I can always come here for a pick me up. No matter how down I am and no matter what thread I pick to read, there is always something in it that will make me laugh or at least smile. Thanks Mods for making this place great. Thanks to everyone for being a part of my life. Thanks for all the stories, pictures, videos, etc. Thanks for all the support that everyone gives, not just to David but to each other. As long as this place is around, I will continue be a member. I love you guys!

I CANNOT believe it's been a year since I joined "The Home". I remember everyone getting PMs about the link and stuff back at AI.com, and trying to make sure that everyone knew about this site. Then when we were all here everyone was excited about not being sent to banned camp by the Mods. hahaha, good times.

It was added because of David, um oops I mean Terry, stealing Kelly's bell and dinging it and claiming that his favorite word is "DING" and then ringing the bell after every little thing that was said.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY WORD NERDS

I can't believe it has been a year allready. I go back and watch the top 20 where we heard "Yes, A Word Nerd" for the first time and can't believe how much has changed. We have shared happy times, sad times, hilarious times and OMG moments . There is no other place I would go for those moments. WNH is the best place to cheer you up, being OMG pictures of David and EEB or videos. I hope there will be many more years of these moments.

Also, with the help of David/Dale we got to meet Terry Terry\'s fav wordROFLOL

I can't believe it has been a year already, and that I joined in the first day.

I can remember as if was yesterday when I was helping writing invites on the Idol forum.

You don't have any idea how therapeutic and helpfull (specially in improving my english) this has been.

Thanks to everyone for making this place so fun to be in it.



Happy Birthday!
