Happy 20th birthday to the forums!

Post by orudge »

Somehow it was a full two decades ago that tt-forums.net was registered, to create a new site from the merger of the TransportTycoon.co.uk forums and the owenrudge.co.uk Transport Tycoon forum. It was 2 more days before the merged forums actually launched, but I think historically we've always celebrated this date, so here we go. :)

Thanks to everyone who has continued to be a part of the TT-Forums community, and especially to those of you who have volunteered countless hours helping to keep on top of spam (or keep folk in line!). While things are perhaps a little quieter here than they used to be, there's still a lot of traffic going through the site, and lots of activity still going on in the graphics and development scenes, which is great to see. Despite commercial and centralised alternatives, it's nice that there are still people who value traditional forums and continue to visit.

Here's to another 20 years, I hope!

Cheers,

Happy birthday! It's a delight to see that classic forums still can stay on foot. Keep it up, everyone!

Happy birthday! 20 means you are old enough to buy alcohol in Swedish state owned liquor store Systembolaget. What an achievement!

20 years is an impressive milestone for a forum, I must admit.
