10 years of LaTeX-Community.org

Postby Stefan Kottwitz » Sun Jan 15, 2017 2:07 pm

Hello all,

it's been 10 years since the LaTeX Community forum came online! It was founded by Sven Wiegand, he posted the announcement on January 14, 2007.

The board statistics on the bottom of the forum index page says, we got: Total posts 87310 • Total topics 22249 • Total members 14947

The forum developed over time, we can follow the changes in the announcement forum. The last big change was moving to a smartphone friendly responsive theme and adding navigation features. It's still the good old phpBB discussion forum software. We could migrate to a question and answer software, such we use on TeXwelt.de and TeXnique.fr - if there's enough user and moderator support for that. I just did not dare yet to compete with the $70 million q&a site, that now dominates TeX talk since it added TeX as topic. Well, we will still be here in another 10 years, when their investors got their money back or not. :-)

In the name of our many users, I especially thank our active moderators
  • Johannes, the man who tirelessly helps in all forums,
  • Joseph, the famous LaTeX 3 developer,
  • Clemens, the chemistry LaTeX expert,
  • Christian, the teacher among us,
  • Scott, the LyX expert,
  • Vel, the template specialist
and the many helpers and also the questioners, who keep the forum alive.

A big happy birthday to the forum and a big thanks to the users who ask and answer questions.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
