    Hey guys,

    We're happy to wish you all holiday greetings and a happy new year! The time has come for us to write something nice and feel-good about the ending of the year.

    This year has been a very interesting one, for both the site and the Warcraft 3 community. Here is a summary of the highlights that happened during the past year:
    It was a very good year for The Hive Workshop, but we can say that it still feels like this is just the beginning. The new site has been lacking in some areas compared to the old one, but is rapidly improving and in many cases far superior now. We're excited about being able to add new features that have been planned for years, and that we're sure you will love.
    Keep on the lookout for current maps expanding past 8mb, and new maps being created to use the limit raise to its full potential. The hosted project Gaias Retaliation has even been ready for a while with their awesome 50 mb version.

    Bring on 2017!

    Thank you very much Ralle, Happy Holidays for you, too. I am glad Blizzard is working on WC3 again, and the new Hive looks really cool. :D

    I believe I only Hosted 2 (both Hero Contests)... Wait, when was that Modeling Contest? Anyway, I participated in, like, 3-5 probably. Not too many more.

    Yes, I hope I can say "this has been awesome year for a hiver" at the end of 2017. And I know 2017 personally will be exciting one for me, heh...

    Happy holidays everyone! It has been an awesome year in hive (even though I was less active than I wanted to), let the next one be even more awesome!
    Btw, I wasn't expecting a "best attachment" category :D
