MS will always be here! Definitely a good thing.

You'd have to ask Darth. As far as I know, May 2013, but he may know otherwise.

It was founded around April/May of 2013! It's been about 5 1/2 years now.

And it's a real shame Icyboards is gone. I will miss the community and everyone that I've met there. I do hope sincerely that Spork still pops by every now and then. Sad

It sure will! I'm very excited about how far the community has come and how long it has lasted. We need some good ideas to modernize this place a bit too. For the most part, the design, layout, functionality, etc. has stayed the same for many years, but we've stayed strong regardless. Finna Tongue

I think deep down, I had learned from having done (or been a part of) too many redesigns at SM. People got worn out of them, I think. There's always a good balance that needs to be found with it.

I'm still a fan of it, after all this time.

Otherwise, it would have ended like all the forums I had joined over the years, and I would have tired and left.

for all the lulls I think makestation is something like a fondly remembered classic, it doesn't really die or age, it just is.

Especially since a lot of forums are going by the wayside in leu of other more immediate communication methods, a shame really.

It is indeed. Like a very slow moving river. It may not have the bursts like some places, but it's solid, consistent, and always here.

Glad to help keep it alive.

We're kinda timeless. I wasn't ever really planned that way, which is the surprising part. I had these huge visions for this community when it was started, (and I can't really take the credit, it was a team effort by everybody by all accounts), and for the most part, we've pretty much lived up to the goals that we set for ourselves. It's kinda become this place that's more or less a safety net and a refuge for all sorts of other communities that either still exist or have gone by the wayside. And it's a place where just about anything is welcome.

Beyond just being an administrator, it's a community I'm proud to be a member of. I don't know where else I'd dump all of these random ramblings and projects I come across. (And I KNOW y'all can agree... Finna )

Thanks for being a part of this community everyone. It's a team effort that has made it the place it has become. And we will continue to work hard to make sure that it is here for years to come. Big Grin

Also, I have some free time finally, so you may see me around here a bit more. The semester from hell has finally ended, and the next one will be much less burdensome on me. I feel exhausted beyond belief, but a few days off and I'm already feeling much more well-rested.
