Firstly, here are some stats just to show you how much we love talking about Deps:
Since the beginning there are 1830 members, who have posted 85329 total posts in 1180 topics!!
Within the last year we have had a lot of things going on in the background, mainly which involved moving the forum to our new host (which caused us a lot of sleepless nights and grey hair). We were told that prophpbb would be migrating to tapatalk and the layout was horrendous. We've always tried to give you the best layouts we could and we knew we would have to find a brand new host. After a lot of discussion and trials behind the scenes we finally found one, and despite some necessary maintenance we weren't down for too long and everything worked out perfectly.
We also managed to raise a fair amount of money for charity in the last year. Both Young Minds and Make A Wish Foundation benefited from the generosity of all our lovely users, as well as raising money for the forum, we cannot thank you all enough for helping with all these causes.
We just want to say a massive thank you to everyone for making IDB what it is, you guys are the people who make it so fun to run so please never change.
Also, just as a bit of fun, last year Oqua showed you what the site first looked like in the first couple of days being live
Lots of love from the team at IDB
ps. we will have something new and fun for you coming up but it's not quite ready yet
