It’s the year of recreation and rethinking for Ice Cream Man and while Rupert is super busy wrapping up Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and filming Cherrybomb and Wild Target, Ice Cream Man takes its time to rebuild the site and doing its first steps into the socialmedia world.
RG.us staffer Karo, the technical brain behind Ice Cream Man and the one who optimized the 24-hour packing and organising system to attend events, talks about her favourite memories of working for Ice Cream Man.

Fourth Day of Rupert-Grint.us’ Anniversary Countdown!

Icon 2July 10th, 2014, 0:04am– Here is the next part of our 10-day Birthday Countdown for Rupert-Grint.us‘ Anniversary!

While Rupert Grint promoted Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Ice Cream Man became more established as a news source. We shared our first exclusive news and covered several red carpet events.
Our UK-based Ivana talks about her experiences as a staff member – and it is thanks to her that you can find Ice Cream Man‘s news on both Google and imdb.com, and she improved many things with her technical knowledge.

You can find that and a new poll in today’s countdown below:

Third day of celebrating ten years on Rupert-Grint.us!

Icon 3July 9th, 2014, 0:00am– Welcome back to Day Three of our 10-day Birthday Countdown for Rupert-Grint.us‘ Anniversary!

In 2006, Rupert promoted Driving Lessons. Ice Cream Man continued to grow, with a new section and the first project being introduced. This was also the beginning of our site’s Exclusives in general, and particularly our very first interview with Rupert Grint himself. This interview was done by Lyn, our Los-Angeles based staff member, who tells us about her experiences with and on the site in her report.

Anniversary Countown: Day Two of celebrating ten years on Rupert-Grint.us!

Icon 2July 8th, 2014, 00:00am– Welcome to the second day of our 10-day Birthday Countdown for Rupert-Grint.us‘ Anniversary!

Today, we are focusing on the year 2005, the time when Rupert filmed and promoted Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. This was the year in which the site was established as a source for Rupert Grint‘s fans and continued to grow after it had moved to its own domain. Jesi shares her experiences with the site – she was webmistress Tao’s very first staff member and news poster on Ice Cream Man, and she had the idea to create the popular Rave Reviews section!

Anniversary Countown: Celebrating ten years on Rupert-Grint.us!

Icon 3July 7th, 2014, 0:24am– In 10 days, Rupert-Grint.us will have its tenth anniversary, and to celebrate this awesome event, we are starting our 10-day Birthday Countdown today!
Each day is dedicated to one year, and we will take a look back with you how the site grew, changed, and became what it is today. Ten staff members (both former and present) will share their personal stories of how they came to work on the site and what their dearest memories are. And we would like to see you participate in our celebration by voting in our ten polls, and sharing your memories in the comments.

We are starting today with the year 2004, when everything began shortly after the release of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Our webmistress Tao will tell you about her intention behind creating RG.us and what it means to her ten years later.
