Happy Birthday, PTB!

Since 2009, and over 450 betas and 500 authors later, Project Team Beta has grown by leaps and bounds, and 2012 is sure to be no different. Throughout the month of March, we will be celebrating the last three years and all of the hard work put into making PTB a success by all of our betas, authors and mods. Join us in celebrating by visiting our Happy Birthday tumblr and posting a message.

You can also follow along on PTB’s Twitter#HappyBdayPTB, and on Facebook.

You can also show your PTB love and party spirit, by displaying one of our birthday buttons:
