Science Fiction & Fantasy Stack Exchange started on 11 January 2011, which means the site is less than two months away from being a decade old! That's a pretty big milestone, so do we, as a community, want to mark the occasion with any special events or celebrations?

Word from SE is that we can get a special temporary birthday banner, looking something like this (image from Ask Ubuntu, which turned 10 years old a few months ago). I don't know how much more we can get on the design/support side of things, but certainly we're able to organise community events if there's enough interest.

Links from other sites' metas that recently turned 10, if you need inspiration:

I'm posting this pretty early, two months ahead of the birthday date, because of the impending holiday period: I guess fewer people will be actively using SE during most of the weeks leading up to 11 January. Also it gives us more time to discuss and brainstorm different ideas.

    Not to seem ungrateful, but can we ask for a banner that looks less like it belongs on Geocities circa 1996? – Valorum Nov 21 at 23:53

    @Valorum I don't actually know how much it's customisable. Something that fits with our own site theme would be nice, if possible. I'll ask. – Rand al'Thor Nov 21 at 23:54

    Don't look to the Physics site for inspiration; over there we have done jack squat. – Buzz Nov 22 at 2:27

    Probably some banner that belongs on Neocities circa 2077 would be a better fit :p Also consider playing cross-site (SE) puzzles and trivia quizzes with folks from Puzzling, Board games, TV&Anime and Arqade in chat and on discords (off-site). – user1306322 Nov 22 at 4:28

    Maybe SE can finally reward this achievement by giving us back a proper theme. – TheLethalCarrot Nov 22 at 9:52

    Delete the whole site? – Möoz Nov 22 at 22:12

    @Möoz or rather, create a paradox (preferably involving a time-traveling robot), causing the entire site to never have existed. – SQB Nov 23 at 12:18

    @SQB Maybe that's what the Angle of Death has been all along. – TheLethalCarrot Nov 23 at 12:28

    @TheLethalCarrot Is one hundred degrees the Angle of Death? – Rand al'Thor Nov 23 at 12:45

    @Randal'Thor I believe so yes, does that also mean "Angle of Death" is the "Typo of Annoyance"? – TheLethalCarrot Nov 23 at 12:47
  • The Angle of Death is a Pedant too? Go figure. – Möoz Nov 23 at 22:43

    We could all watch the Star Wars Holiday Special, and then contemplate the possibility that we've collectively managed to create something even worse. (I kid, of course — my nonsense excluded, this community is great.) – Paul D. Waite Nov 24 at 17:40

    Watch the tenth episode of all of the Star Treks? – Azor Ahai -him- Nov 28 at 5:04

    I think the Top 10 Users should give away 10,000k rep in bounties! – Skooba 22 hours ago
