Officially 1 year old today - 50,000 posts.
« on: September 14, 2019, 02:29:20 AM »
So, with 49954 posts as I type, it looks like post 50,000 will occur while I'm asleep.

It's almost exactly 1 year since the board went live. The first posts occurred on Sept 15th.

2593 topics.

1342 active members.

We average up to 130+ guests and members online in any hour.

Not bad for an escape from KB forum.  :icon_mrgreen:

So, who's going to get the 50,000th post?

Bummer for you.  I was present for the momentous occasion.  There were streamers and confetti.  Might have been a streaker too but I closed my eyes to avoid seeing things jiggling I did not wish to see, jiggling or otherwise.  There was also Jell-O but not the jiggling kind.  It was watermelon flavor.

Streaker? That wasn't in the plan. Wait, let me find the recording made for training purposes.

Woo hoo - almost a year old. I do like this forum. Lots of grown up talk, a bit of silliness, and plenty of support from other indies.

Oh, and let's not forget the emojis!!!

Congrats and thanks for keeping the pool at this oasis tidy.

I'm a long-lurking reader of the other forum, but tuned out due to RL. Followed the bread crumbs to here once I learned the reasons for the splintering off.

Thank you Tim for creating this forum.
I remember those dark, gloomy days when I was with others, on a lifeboat, drifting about the internet and wondering what would become of us. Then, out of the murkiness, you pulled up with a boat and said "hop on board".
The way things are going now, you'll soon be needing a cruise ship...Thanks again, you're a ⭐️
