Happy birthday Tildes!

Tags: fluff

As of 2019-04-26 20:02:13 UTC, the date at which the first available topic was posted, Tildes is officially 1 year old! Happy anniversary! :D

@Deimos, if you're making an official topic I'll delete this one after. :P

Edit: Let me also take this opportunity to mention you should donate if you're able to do so and here's why! https://docs.tildes.net/donate

Tildes has no investors, no advertising, and does not sell anything (including its users' data). Donations are its only income.

    Oh, uh, I didn't even realize it was today, so I didn't have an official topic planned or anything. I always think of when I made the announcement blog post, which wasn't until May 2. You're right...

    Oh, uh, I didn't even realize it was today, so I didn't have an official topic planned or anything. I always think of when I made the announcement blog post, which wasn't until May 2.

    You're right though, my account is just a little bit older than 1 year now:

    tildes=> SELECT NOW() - created_time FROM users WHERE username = 'Deimos';

    So... thanks for pointing it out! Surprise happy birthday to Tildes!

    Dang, less than a month since I've spent a year on this site. That's crazy! I joined here before I started college, and now I'm a year in, soon to be a sophomore.

    It's only a year old? I thought it was older.

      There's a private slack channel that's quite a bit older than the website itself, some of us have been going back and forth on Tildes-meta for quite a bit longer than Tildes has existed. All of that activity has moved over to ~tildes now though, as it should be. Deimos had a test version up for like two weeks before it was wiped/reset and the actual launch happened. Tildes kinda came out of the gate fast once the bedrock was coded. That was intentional - proper user driven development and testing can't happen in a slack channel. ;)

    Happy Birthday, Tildes! Although I haven't been active for most of it, it's nice to see the site grow. I hope it will soon have a community that shares my interests more, so I can participate more...

    This is a fantastic example of a topic which is fluff but would definitely deserve an Exemplary label when topic labels are implemented.

    At least the OP made a comment which, as far as I can see, was Exemplaryd.

    Sorry for fluff: This is how I feel about the first Tildes' anniversary.
