In true OH style, this was supposed to be posted yesterday but the servers had other ideas.....
✧ Happy Anniversary! ✩
3rd May, 2013.....Five years ago
today yesterday, OneHallyu as we know it was born.
Since that time, we have witnessed our fair share of ups-and-downs together. As a community, there's been fun times: whether that's just meeting new friends, to getting yourself involved in the fandom life or various events that are hosted. We've also had plenty of sad occasions from the many tragedies in the KPop world to matters more personal to us, that have made us come together despite our usual differences, more drama and scandals than you would find in a makjang and don't forget the endless amounts of server downtime.
However, despite all of that, we have managed to break that dreaded five year curse & OneHallyu is still considered one of the most popular hubs for discussion pertaining to Asian Entertainment online five years on. We are continuing to grow even now (with over 10k+ threads and 400k posts made in the last month alone). Here's to many more!
This milestone could not have been achieved without you, the users that continue to regard OneHallyu as your go-to place for news and discussions on your favourite artists and beyond that. All of our past and current staff members: thank you. For your time and hard work during the last five years, right now and into the future let's gooo ♥♥
Now on to the fun stuff!
As we're celebrating a special milestone this year, we thought it would be nice to take a walk down memory lane and look back on the past five years of the Asian Entertainment world, and the OneHallyu community in general; with a celebration of the past and OH's legacy by voting for all our favourite things Asian Ent and OH. Whether you're a veteran user ready to get nostalgic, or a newer user, this is open to everyone!
Okay, here's how this is going to work:
From today, 4th of May up until a week from now, 11th of May will be the preliminary nominations.
✧ You'll find the list of categories below. Send me a PM with your nominations.
✩ You don't have to vote in all of the categories by the way, just choose the ones you want to contribute to.
✧ You may submit up to 5 votes per category you're voting in. Any less is fine, but no more than 5 please.
✩ We won't be checking the messages until the preliminary round is closed, so you can edit your PM before then.
✧ The top 5 most nominated in each category will progress to the final voting, so get your votes in~
✩ To qualify for voting, any songs/albums/shows & films etc must have been released no earlier than 3rd May, 2013.
✧ Current disbanded groups may be included in voting if they were active during this five year time period.
✩ If you need any further information or assistence please send a message!
✧ No trolling responses please.

✧ Hall Of Fame ✩
To showcase the great, forgotten and classic threads OneHallyu has created during the last five years you guys are voting for, there will be a temporary section made on the main forum. However, official artist group/individual/soloist threads are not eligible. Neither are threads that were closed by a Moderator, or threads that break any of the rules so please don't waste your time voting for any of these. The staff will be looking at each submission carefully regardless.
✧ Best Of OH Stamp ✩
All the users of the OneHallyu Community Categories that win will be placed into a temp usergroup with some added extras, just as a small token of our appreciation! These additional perks will include:
~ PM inbox increase
~ Coloured name and banner

We're looking forward to seeing who and what your favourites are!
Happy (late) Anniversary, OH'ers!
