You know, when we first launched the forum and people woke up to a complete change in platform, I was nervous. Really anxious, actually. There were a lot of things to worry about. But I suppose that my greatest fear was that people wouldn’t have fun on the forum.
The first day went by - hey, we’re still alive. Then the second. Then the third. Fourth. Fifth. Before I knew it, a month had passed. People adjusted to the new layout/tools. The Q&A began to bustle again, and our traffic began to multiply. Our Community survived its infancy. Since then, it has thrived. Why? Frankly, I’m not 100% sure. But I think it’s because people here genuinely want to help and connect with each other.
A year later, I can look back on all this and say, “You know, this community isn’t too bad.” Nah, who am I kidding - you guys are great. I genuinely consider it an honor to have played a small part in maintaining our community.
On February 7th, 2020, I’ll be stepping down as Forum Administrator for GP Forums.
Life is taking me on a different path, and I will not have the ability to be as active here as I should be. My final duties will be training up the new moderators, trying to get bugs fixed, and fulfill any last requests from you guys. I’ll still be around in chat threads and such in the future, so this isn’t a goodbye or anything.
For all future Forum Administration issues, please ping @hiphiparray.
Thanks for the ride, all. I’m glad to have been a little help in growing our forum.
