What better way to celebrate the Soton Tab’s fourth birthday than with an article…oh, and we’ll also be out somewhere getting very drunk tonight (the Soton Tab may be four but we’re not)!

tabbirthday3By clicking on this article you are contributing to the great success of the Soton Tab over the past four years! Now I won’t bore you with the history, you can read that here AND here. Instead I will tell you about the successes of the past four years, and most importantly, the last year.

First of all, everyone loves a good stat. Since the first ever article back in 2010 the Soton Tab has had a whopping 3, 049, 794 hits!

It’s been a pretty darn good year for us for more reason than one, and I’m going to name a few.

3) Our second ever article went Tab national- HYSTERIA as students build HOT TUB in their own back yard (hopefully our articles going national won’t be news next year)
