The 501st Legion, also known as the 501st Battalion during the Clone Wars and later known as "Vader's Fist" and the Five Hundred and First, was an elite unit of clone troopers commissioned by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine during the Clone Wars that later became a stormtrooper unit. Made up of units like Torrent Company, the 501st fought in many battles, such as the Battle of Teth and the Battle of Coruscant, becoming one of the most well-known legions. In 19 BBY, the 501st became Darth Vader's personal unit as he led them during Operation: Knightfall, in which the clones helped take down the Jedi, whom they believed to be traitors to the Republic.
This may seem out of nowhere. It even is, but let me explain.
In july 2012, lil' 13 year old me got an invite from bisszy4ever, to join this moddb group. We started off with a small group of about 30 people, like Mike Pence, Darth_Windu,Super_battle_droid and of course Bisszy4ever. We started sharing fanart and memes, having conversations, and generally internet-bonding with each other. It was a fun sidetrack for my free time.
At a certain stage we started exponentially growing. I as a back then very active member who had been here since the beginning, got a moderater role (which would later be upgraded to a role as admin). I made sure I shared content, tried to grt discussions going, and just continue doing what he had been. I checked the page at least 5 times a day.
But at a certain moment, activity started lowering. I myself got a depression from school stuff which lasted for a good 2.5 years. I also started using moddb less and less, to a point where i forgot my login and had to find an old document for it.
But now to the point: I wanna thank all of you here, especially the "old guard" of this group. It's been almost 6 years now, of which i spent 3.5 actively keeping an eye on this page. I unfortunately had to quit due to my condition, but i'd have my memories. The people i met here would be my first internet friends, and I will always remember them for that.
Of course i don't want to thank just them, but everybody. The regular members who kept joining, commented on pictures, and got us into the moddb top 100 where we still linger to this very day!
Hopefully this post may get things going again. I will sure as hell try to be there!
