These SitePoint forums have been around since the late 90s – a constant companion to web enthusiasts and professionals as the Web has evolved though all its many phases.
The role of forums like this has changed over time, but those who help to keep these forums running hope that they still provide a fun and stimulating environment where people can get help, learn, discuss, and enjoy the company of like-minded people.
New Mentors for 2016!
We’re really lucky to have a lot of enthusiastic members willing to help out around the place. To kick off 2016, we’re excited to announce the addition of four new members to our team of friendly forum volunteers.
Congratulations, and thanks, to @Gandalf, @WebMachine, @SamA74 and @megazoid for agreeing to join our team of merry Mentors — those friendly folks with orangy usernames who are here to “go with thee and be thy guide” should you need anything.
We have new Advisors, too!
With Discourse (the forum software used by these forums) we have a lot of spam-busting tools at our fingertips, which helps to keep this place free of the stuff we don’t want. But of course, we still need people to push the buttons and make decisions, so we’re grateful to have new helpers to that end.
Enjoy the community
So, welcome to 2016, everyone, and have fun around here. Please feel free to start topics about the things you’re interested in, working on, learning about, wondering about, thinking about, and so on. This place is what we make of it, and we’re all still learning what role a forum can play in 2016 — when there are so many avenues for engagement on the Web.
