LinuxQuestions.org Turns Ten


I'm extremely excited to announce that just over 10 years ago today I made my very first post at LQ, which served to introduce it to the web. In the 3,654 days between then and now, LQ has exceeded my expectations in every way. 441,620 members have posted 4,006,965 times in 807,707 threads. The LQ Wiki has 7,895 articles and LQ ISO has facilitated 12,185,643 downloads. LQ even has a new sister site of sorts in Linux Exchange. There's one thing that has stayed consistent despite our continued growth, however, and that's the fact that we have one of the best member communities on the web. I'd like to once again thank each and every LQ member for their participation, dedication and feedback.

That feedback has been critical to our continued success and we really do listen. With that in mind, I'd like to use this thread to collect as much feedback as possible about LQ. What are we doing well and where can we improve? What new features or sections would you like to see? What should we be doing differently? Let us know your thoughts and as a thank you, I'll be randomly selecting 10 suggestions from this thread and will upgrade the posting member to a contributing member for one year.

In addition to our fantastic members, I'd be remiss for not mentioning the LQ mods team. The amount of time and dedication they put into the site probably goes unnoticed by many. They keep LQ on topic and on point. The work you see them put into the forums is only the beginning and for that I can not thank them enough. LQ truly would not be what it is without them.

Jeremy, congrats to you and all the mods, for all your perseverence, patience and humour, without which LQ would never have provided the haven that it has become. Hopefully, you will all get more time, and the wherewithall to travel to all the countries that are represented by a worldwide membership. May you all live long and prosper.

Cheers

Happy Birthday, LQ! Thanks, Jeremy & The Moderators*, for everything, and especially for putting up with me for 4 years.
*Is that a '60's rock group?

More like a 60's folk group, complete with Arran sweaters and real ale.

Thank You

Linux questions has saved me from so many headaches over the years. In fact, I am not certain that I could have stayed with GNU/Linux without the help of LQ.

Of all the NIX forums out there, in my opinion this one is the best. It clearly excels in regards to on topic content, member knowledge, professionalism, and timely responses. The forums is also very good at dealing complex issues effecting the veteran user as well as the sometimes, but not always, simple issues faced by a newbie.
