Welcome to my b-day thread, AT! I turn 21 on the 21st and to celebrate I'm hosting a big ol' AT style party! For you, that means plenty of rates, contests and more!

Every big thread needs a few rules so here they are!

1. Follow the ToS, duh.
2. No spamming, flaming, absurd arguing, etc. If you have a problem with me, just shoot me and a PM.
3. Do NOT quote the first page!
4. On that note, no page stretching. It's annoying.
