Another year, another woeful lack of blog posts. I’m extremely proud to announce that exactly thirteen years ago yesterday I made my very first post at LinuxQuestions.org. As has become tradition, here’s a quick post looking back on the past year and ahead to the next. 4,957,366 posts and 499,844 registered members (730,795 members have actually registered, but we have a very active pruning policy for members who have never posted) does not even begin to tell the story. The community that has grown and flourished at LQ is both astounding and humbling. I’d like to once again thank each and every LQ member for their participation, dedication and feedback. I’d also like to thank the dedicated mod team, whose level-headed decisions have been a cornerstone of the site’s success. As part of our birthday celebration, we’ll be giving away Contributing Member updates, LQ Merchandise and even a gratis pass to OSCON 2013 in Portland. Stay tuned for more details.
This year has been another year of solid growth, both for LQ and The Questions Network. We recently launched ChromeOSQuestions.org, which joined AndroidQuestions.org and LQ. While we delayed the code update that we had planned for LQ, both CQ and AQ are running the latest platform. We have a couple items to work out, but LQ should be moving to the the new platform some time this year. Once that happens, we have some exciting new features and functionality we think you’ll enjoy. Thanks again to all members for your participation, dedication and feedback. If you think there is anywhere we can improve, don’t hesitate to let us know.
