I know it works better in person. I was torn on whether I should create this thread but it does reflect on the forum itself within the last year.

When I first joined it was initially to find out if I had been ripped off on a hardware sale. Like the genius I was I created an account solely to request the admins verify an email I had against a username.... oh to be dumb and naive again.

Truth be told I had already spent 3 months researching crypto and had already been mining for 3 months or so. The reason I didn't start here was because it appeared to be a steaming pile of shit.

Trying to find basic information was near impossible and a large number of posters seemed to be talking out of their asses.

Over the last year I think the forum has improved greatly due to some vigilant MODS and an active community base that decided it was time for change. The merit system has also helped move the forum in a positive direction.

This was my first experience within an online forum and I definitely had a lot to learn. Thanks to those that helped along the way.

Is this story included in the spam category, sorry guys just joking. Grin

almost the same, my first here is for learning how to mine altcoins. I have been here for a year and this forum, especially the mining(Altcoins), is fantastic, giving me valuable information from zero mining of altcoins until I have several rigs that can be used as additional income outside the real-life profession. that's why almost 95% of my posts are there.

I found introducing kiddies to  Mr Search Engine and a lesson in history  puts things in a different perspective.  Grin

We are surrounded by legends on this forum. Phenomenal successes and catastrophic failures. Then there are the scams. This forum is a digital museum.

@edwardceng
I still find the alt coin mining section pretty rough to navigate. Luckily Phillipma1957 runs a great thread consistently with lots of info.

@xtraelv

Advanced search is pretty good these days. Mind was blown when I realised it was more then an icon.

The history thread while entertaining, would have been useless to me. I was trying to learn the ins and outs of home mining. I feel the bitcoin mining section is almost unrecognizable from that time.  Which is a huge plus to someone trying to get help or information.

You are right, I think it depends on what parts of the forum you are here to utilise. Mostly I was looking back on what I came here for day one(bitcoin mining) and where it is now.

So for me it's a noticeable improvement. There is nothing to be done about the droves of shitposters and scammers that come here daily; I just can't speak to that because it took me a long time to change lanes and explore the forum.

Start day party is over locking thread. Pm me if you want to add something.
