Community: 10 Years of Banter
On this day in history... 10 years ago to the day in fact, we went live with the Handheld PC Community forums here on HPC:Factor.
10 years later, they are still here and, while perhaps not as busy as they once were, they are still being used - and more importantly they have withstood the barrage of spam attacks that the servers receive on a daily basis with only a minimum of bother for the community team.
It has been a long journey to this point, one that not many sites on the Internet have or indeed will ever reach. I am incredibly proud to be part of this community, a community that has fought to survive as the technology that it support has more or less fallen into obscurity.
We have seen many members come and go over the years; a few have remained with us throughout the journey and are still active on the site to this day. Other friends and comrades we have seen come and go have moved onto greener pastures, setup their own site and communities or just had to face the terrifying prospect of the bright and boundless horror or real life. In at least one case one of our members even found religion and left us for a life of solitude and reflective mediation in a temple... hopefully not a reflection on the stresses of being a HPC:Factor Moderator?
Not withstanding a few bumps along the way, I think that the community forums have had a positive impact on the site and community, one that I hope will continue to be so long into the future.
