Congratulations!!
Wow, what a radical change in in the design of 2009. The current design is very accurate and intuitive.

10 years is something that you say faster but it has a big meaning.

Happy birthday HackThis!!

When I registered about two years ago, I knew nothing about Hacking or challenges. Hackthis was what made me love it, and I leaned so much from the challenges, and from you, guys.
Sincere thanks for everything, to everyone!

How? It’s pretty easy, just read some of their post

Fortunately, I deleted a lot of their messages, otherwise they would’ve been at -100 :)

We should do a #top1 of bad karma!

@Mugiwara27 Bad idea, we shouldn’t reward bad behavior, this would become a game for some :p

No reward for bad karma, just a #top1 of them, and let’s hope nobody try to start this game, because I’m done with the extra moderating work :(

@flabbyrabbit A new shirt?? You would be a saint! <3

[s]and is there a repository for the Defend the Web code? I’d love to find the first bug ;P[/s]

Ahh nevermind, after some reconnaissance, I now know that it is hidden and that the site is coming soon!
