We’re not good on remembering anniversaries, but the cake next to be wee frog icon reminded me we are today 6 years old on this version of the forums. Happy Birthday forums!
I’ve been happy with Discourse as our forum engine, and it’s been nice to watch it spread like some sort of text-based virus through where forums are still used on the internet. Things like reddit and Discord are where the really cool kids hang out, but that’s all been good for us here. All we wanted was a less clunky text / message based forum, and somewhere anyone could read and join in, and that’s what we got. It’s ok to have text and pictures that don’t disappear at the next corporate acquisition or IPO - it’s slower paced but given our dad-bods that’s probably all good too. . A lot of people arrive via Google searches etc and I think it generally helps a lot of sim people, which was the idea.
Please only take one piece of cake.
