LinuxQuestions.org Turns Fifteen


WOW. Fifteen years ago today I made the first post ever at LQ, introducing it to the world. 15 Years. I know I've said it before, but 5,354,618 posts later the site and community have exceeded my wildest expectations in every way. The community that has formed around LQ is simply amazing. The dedication that the members and mod team has shown is both inspiring and truly humbling. Id like to once again thank each and every LQ member for their participation and feedback. While there is always room for improvement, that LQ has remained a friendly and welcoming place for new Linux members despite its size is a testament to the community. Reaching this milestone has served to energize and refocus my efforts on making sure the next fifteen years are even better than the first fifteen.

To say that feedback has been absolutely critical to our success is an understatement. 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? Where are we failing? What can we do to ensure long time members remain engaged and willing to help? What can we do to ensure new members feel welcome? What new features or sections would you like to see? What should we be doing differently? When giving your feedback, please remember that LQ will be updated to the next generation code platform, hopefully some time this year (at this point, we've put it off too long). To get a peek at what that platform will be like, please visit http://www.ChromeOSQuestions.org/forum.php. Feedback on that site is very much welcome as well.

As part of our 15 year anniversary, we'll be giving away some LQ Merchandise. We'll also be randomly selecting 15 posts from this thread and upgrading that member to "Contributing Member" status for one year. Stay tuned, and thanks again for being a member. Together, I think we can make LQ even better.

Congrats, Jeremy! I can't even begin to tell you how invaluable LQ and its members are. I have learned so much as a member these last 4 years, and hopefully helped a few along the way. I think this is a great community, a great resource, and I am looking forward to many more years with LQ!
