I'm pleased to announce that Barrens.chat came online for the first time one year ago today. Woohoo!
A big thank you and shout out to all the guide writers, contributors, supporters, posting members (and lurkers! ) who have helped build this place up from the beginning. Honestly didn't expect this much interest in a bulletin board in 2019 - perhaps it's the nostalgia, or the desire for a slower pace of discussion? Either way I'm so happy you're all here and enjoying the forum.
Not much else to say really - here's to another year of terrible posting. One free https://classic.wowhead.com/item=2594 for everyone on the house! (..But not you @Uncle Ganus McAnus, you've had too much already
PS I've had people asking if I accept donations etc. - I don't. Try finding opportunities to link topics, guides and resources posted here elsewhere on the net wherever you think it's relevant to do so - this in itself is far more valuable to our growing community than any amount of money will ever be. Every little link helps!
Definitely part nostalgia here. I really miss the communities that developed around forums. I was hugely involved with the Destructoid.com forums before they closed and have been looking for something similar since. I'm excited to see how this place develops after Classic is released.
It's really been a year?
Good on you @teebling for making this place happen! Wanted something like this for years <3
Best community ever. Cheers everyone!
By the https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=14872/drunken-rage of https://classic.wowhead.com/npc=2696/foggy-mackreel, I say ! There's no such thing as too much mead, ale or wine !!!
I remember us being like 8-12 people trying to get this party started along with teeb guiding us and here we are – a year has passed and the forum is sprawling with debates, opinions and jokes.
Fantastic. Lets cherish this and keep it going. Classic is just around the corner now.
