Hello everyone! Yes, the information given in that incredibly long title is true. :) On August 31st, 2012, the Adele Wiki will officially turn one-year-old. =) We are very excited about this; we will be having some sort of special activity that will probably go on all month (all throughout September) in order to celebrate, but I cannot tell you what it is yet... =) You'll be very pleased, though. Anyways, I really hope everyone else is as excited as I am. I would like to [ahead of time] thank the following people: Adele, Adele's band, all the people who have worked on her albums ('19', 'iTunes Live from SoHo', '21', 'iTunes Festival: London 2011', and 'Live at the Royal Albert Hall'), Adele's family and management (who have helped her make it as far as she has), my family and friends, Wikia, all the staff at Wikia and all the members of the Wikia Content Team for making the wiki look so amazing, my fellow administrators (Roxyme and New Captain -- thank you so much for all your hard work!!), and most of all, all the users on the wiki who have made the wiki so amazing and great. We could not have made it this far without any of you guys. :)

I would also like to say that I am very proud to have created this wiki and be a part of it. I will admit, I was a little hesitant about abandoning my other wikis in support of an artist who I had heard very little of. I wasn't sure what to expect. I didn't know she would ever turn out to be as big as she is. I was just creating a website about a woman that I deeply love with all my heart. Adele, you inspire me every single day of my life to keep on moving even when I don't want to. Thank you so much. You're such a beautiful person on the inisde and outside. You amaze me with your talent and genuine personality! =) Anyways... I never knew the wiki would be as successful as it is, and it's not as popular as other wikis ... yet. It's on it's way to getting there. I know this wiki has so much potential, and I know there are more Adele fans out there who can help us; we would so appreciate it if you did. (: We could really use the help.

Thirdly, I would like to tell you guys something SUPER IMPORTANT that I was very hesitant about doing at first, but I've changed my mind and decided that I'll give you a preview of coming attractions! In other words, I'm telling you a little about what to expect on August 31st. =) I am pleased to announce the very first Adele Wiki Awards!!! We will be awarding users, articles, songs, music videos, albums, and more. The voting categories will be posted within the next couple days, and you will be able to begin voting on August 31st, 2012. I'm not sure when voting will end, but I'll let you know. Anyways, there are more surprises in store, that's just all I can say for now. I am very excited! How about you? You guys can post your comments below!
