    Thank you @deimos for the platform and all the hard work you and the other contributors have put into this place. I look forward to see it grow.

    Also: The site relies on donations, we are currently only 43% of the way to the sustainable goal for April, any little bit would help! https://docs.tildes.net/donate

        Totally! I sometimes wonder whether the blue light inhibit functionalities on my screens make it more cozy or eerie... At least it's dim but still readable – hence why I chose it.

    Oh, thanks, Bauke! I wasn't around much yesterday, and didn't even realize.

    And thanks to everyone for being here! There's still lots to do (and always will be), but I'm proud of Tildes and the community that's here. There are always a lot of great topics and discussions going on, and I know it'll only continue getting better.

      I switched from Patreon to Github Contributors because the latter does donation matching. I think @deimos recommended this in a post a while ago. They may still be doing donation matching, so think about switching.

        I saw that post, and I know about the GitHub Contributors page. When I re-started my donations recently (after an absence), I looked at it.

        But I didn't like it. It forces me to choose from a list of fixed amounts to donate. I couldn't donate what I wanted. So I went back to Patreon because it does allow me to donate the amount I want.

      Donor here too, but I can't remember if I used Patreon since it was just one payment like 2 years ago. Made an account on day 3. There's my street cred. ETA: It was Stripe, not Patreon.

    Glad to be here and hope to see it grow! We should plan a month where we all try to invite one user - even doubling the here would do a lot to make the site seem more lively. I know growth is not the main focus, but stagnation or decay doesn't bode well either.

    Nearly been here a year now – signed up May 2, 2019 – and I've been enjoying every moment. Here's to another year!

    It’s been a while since I posted here, and I’m glad to see that Deimos, and everyone else here, have kept this little corner of the internet nice and civil. Happy birthday!
