I noticed a bunch of us have next to our names today. Is it the 5 year anniversary of the first day of the forum? If so, happy anniversary!
It was actually on September 18th.
Today is specifically your “cake day”, the anniversary of when you joined.
Today Google turns 25 too!
Thanks Chad! I guess I was a “late joiner”! Five years. Pretty cool. I’ve learned a lot from you all. Thanks to everyone for sharing!!
There must have been a thing as if you look at the list of us with their 5 year anniversary today, its enormous!
Timing may have to do with when they officially opened it (Sep 18 per the Welcome topic) vs announced on the podcast maybe a bit later?
Would maybe explain a large influx on a given day after the doors opened.
Yeah I have been here since the day it was announced, so… THIS is the official birthday AFAIC, lol.
I had my cake yesterday (26th) and noticed a few others so was wondering the same. Checking my email it looks like on 9/27 they sent out an email announcing the forum, bet that got a wave of people.
Happy B-Day TR Forum! I think TR was on FB before this forum came around. I appreciate all the ways TR puts up with the lot of us.
Yup, that existed for quite a while prior to the forum (year or more IIRC?).
Nate correctly recognized the pitfalls within FB Groups and floated a trial balloon of creating and migrating to a forum. His poll in the FB group was rather negative about it at first (I lobbied hard for a forum BC FB is a mess for stuff like this), but thankfully Nate pushed forward with the idea despite some skepticism and we got this great place at the end.
That FB group still exists but TR seemingly dropped any real monitoring there since it is infested with spammers and BS posts. I finally left the group as a result, despite still having some people using it over the forum for some reason.
Let there be cake!
I just checked mine and tomorrow should be my cake day although it appears today is.
5 years? Wow, that was quick…
So there’s no free cake…disappointing
The cake is a lie.
I’ve ate my cake and burnt it off three times over
