Happy 2 Years To IDB

Post by missemma » Mon Mar 26, 2018 2:02 pm

Wow, it's already been 2 years since we started up this site! The time has gone by so fast and we cannot believe how much the site has grown.

Image

:ribena:

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

but this was one of the headers we talked about using when we were putting the site together! So glad we didn't go with that cherry lube theme haha!

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

:sparkle: WOOOO!! Happy 2nd Anniversary, IDB! :sparkle:

I'm uncomfortable with how much time has passed since I joined this place, because it feels like yesterday. An excellent reminder that we're all aging!! :skeleton:

ANYWHO. These 2 years have been a roller coaster of handwriting analysis, deep and seemingly-unending tour boredom, mild apartment stalking, and inside jokes galore and I couldn't be more thankful. Cheers to IDB and the people that make it wonderful! :ribena:

(Also, thanks Dan and Phil, I guess.)

i'm pretty new compared to a lot of people on this site but the time i've spent lurking/posting has been some of the best time i've had in the dan and phil fandom.

thank you to the team and to all the users who make this such a great place!
(and thank you for not using the cherry theme)

:newyear: :cheer: <3 Happy Two Years Anniversary IDB <3 :cheer: :newyear:

It's amazing how much this lovely community has grown in two years. For something that started as a rebel movement against a place filled with hate, we've all done very well in making IDB into the amazing place it has become. Let's aim for many more! As long as D&P don't retire after tour I guess :')

The anniversary header looks awesome!

Happy two years! I only found idb last year, but I'm really glad and grateful I did because it really has been a blast (even when I was just a lurker).

Thanks to everyone involved and for putting in the time and dedication making idb a lovely corner to hang out in! Here's to another year :ribena:

also idk maybe the cherry theme would be fun to use on a certain day in November

Happy two years idb! I know I wouldn't have got near as deep into this fandom if I hadn't found idb, nor would my fandom experience be anywhere near as great as it is

rebels with a cause! sorry that was cheesy.

re: oquas screencap: lol at the second ever post on the forum being about dan's dental pain kink. you're welcome guys.

FYI: if you can't see the anniversary header, google how to do a hard refresh on your system/browser. for Mac + Chrome: hold down up arrow, shift, and click the refresh button!
