Happy 3rd Birthday, Tildes!

Since no one has posted this yet and the day approaches the end (UTC), I decided to post this...

    Hats off to @Deimos and everyone else that has contributed to this site. Thank you for your hard work and for building this nice little community. I got my invite from reddit about three years ago and pretty much never looked back. It might sound silly, but this site really helped me quit reddit which in turn did wonders for my overall mental health. Turns out I don't need an endless stream of mindless content to be happy.

    I think I'll celebrate by firing off a few invite codes.

    Thanks for posting! It's funny to me that I never seem to remember this myself unless someone else points it out. I always think of it as being in May, since that's when I made the announcement post, but this is definitely the "real" birthday for when the site was started up.

    Thanks to everyone for continuing to be here and all the great posts and discussions!

      As for look/feel, not much. And that is yet another reason why I love Tildes. NB: I am also a June 2018 joiner.

    Oh wow, happy birthday Tildes!! I've been here for 2 years, and it's a big part of my round-the-internet reading regimen.

    Happy Birthday! I didn't realize that when I joined in May 2018 it was less than a month old. It seemed like it had been running for at least a little while by that point. Neat!

    I registered here over a year ago. Happy to have found this community. It feels not too big, not too small, with a great mix of interesting topics/categories that get regular posts. Good signal-to-noise ratio, and very low toxicity. Happy birthday; here's to more.

    Happy Birthday Tildes! I've been active for over two years, and love the place more and more every day I load up. Thank you to @Deimos for his spirit and persistance to make this a great space.
