When we started this site, we didn't really know what to expect. Other than a personal affinity for Blackbox, not too many signs pointed to a successful resurrection for the shell. Even BB old timers and figureheads weren't too optimistic about the prospects - in fact, most of them were really negative. Mojmir believed Blackbox was still popular and so did I. Took about 2,000 e-mails and invitations to find out the shell was very much alive.

Today, close to 4 months after its inauguration, Blackbox4Windows has more than 500 members, almost 1,000 posts, about 1,300 wallpapers and screenshots with close to 2,000 comments and no less than 4 new builds. Just one of these builds, mojmir's, was viewed by more than 800 people and downloaded almost 200 times.

For the first time ever in the history of Blackbox sites we have gathered all BB plugins under one roof - the real thing, not just links that may be long dead - and almost all Blackbox flavors ever released.

Old users pop up - servi and lyrae being the most recent additions - and what's amazing is the fact that new users join daily. Styles and themes are coming in and we hope we'll become a full screenshots and styles repository like boxshots used to be.

Let's keep the ball rolling and keep on Blackboxing!
