Man, I love the openness here. There was some legit criticism on... well the last forum I was a member of .. and openness and a genuine will to listen helps a long way towards not ending up like that .
Dark theme!! Yay! Looking forward to that the most. Given the traffic (and impressions) the forum has been getting, I'd say get an ad publisher signed up. They will act as your ad vendor and you won't need to do anything. :)
Loving this open dialogue all the staff continues to have with the community and the fact that you all are so dedicated to working right alongside everyone to make this the best community it can be. Thanks so much for all that everyone has done, and each update that you provide us just brings more and more good news. Look forward to the journey with you all!
This feels like the appropriate thread to say this — the forum software is awesome and the amount of work you’ve all put in in such a short time to get this ship up and running is nothing short of remarkable.
Edit: Not just “up and running”, more like a fully-featured well-oiled machine
Thank you so much for creating this amazing space, I have long been wanting to get to be an (active) member of a community like this, I hope the building blocks that have been laid here are able to support this incredible group of rapidly expanding members whether they be industry professionals, fans/enthusiasts like myself and everyone else from all different walks of life that share a heartfelt and sincere interest in being a part of something special, to the future, may it burn brightly here!!
edit: I just got to read the ban policy and not to spam the thread to much, but ditto what others have already said, thank you, thank you, thank you, for being transparent about this subject (and in general really).
