I’m a bit late, but all joking aside…
I recall first joining the forums after learning about Auxy. I was elated to find a group of talented, aspiring individuals who were united under a single, brilliant app. Everyone pitched in (for the most part) to make the community what it was.
There were people posting an upcoming song and giving friendly, constructive criticism on others’ posts. There were people volunteering to host amazing challenges like BTC as well as an impressive number of participants for each one.
Some threads were fun, some were unnecessary to the forum, but most threads breathed life into this community.
It rocked. All of it.
Then, upsetting things happened. Arguments arose. Individuals created more off topic discussions and the place became less organized. Less monitored. Controversial meme threads were removed but the forum was still not the same. Now we’re arguing over how to fix it. And the only new topics I see are feedback and self promotion topics.
Through all of the disagreement, we are still a community .
We have the power to change it if we desire. After all, who runs a community anyways? the people. If we want to see the forums change, we need to act now, and change it ourselves.
@lenberg, @MisterMaster, @icsleepers, you have been great at providing insightful opinions and monitoring the forums. We appreciate all your hard work and cannot wait to see the future of this forum.
