** Although the Best of EE campaign was released before the game's tenth anniversary, it was made to celebrate the ten separate years the game has been online. Each of the ten tiers represents a popular level from that year, and the [[HubLevel level the campaign itself is hosted in]] talks about the new major additions and changes to the game that happened each year.


* AscendedMeme:
** Users jokingly called original design of the Astronaut Smiley the "Fishbowl Astronaut" on the official forums when they petitioned for its return. The Staff brought it back as the Fishbowl Smiley.
** The user "Cow" made a nonsensical forum post filled with [[SillyAnimalSound mooing]], which was quickly closed and got lots of user attention. Six days later, the Moodonna [[NonPlayerCharacter NPC]] was added to the game with a description imitating the style of the forum thread:
---> moo moo moo moo moomoo


Added DiffLines:

* TheMerch: Official t-shirts and mugs have been sold as merchandise for the game.


* RunningTheAsylum: As ''Everybody Edits'' goes on, it seems to become more and more like how players have wanted it to be. Coin gates, blue coin doors, signs, invisible portals, global switches, and [[NonPlayerCharacter NPCs]] were all common game suggestions before being added to the game. It helps that most of the staff members [[AscendedFanboy were once regular players themselves]].

This applied, but to a lesser extent, for the original staff members, who were more limited and inactive.[[note]]Except [=RPGMaster2000=], who was well-appreciated by the {{fandom}} for interacting a lot and responding to concerns and questions.[[/note]]
