Happy New Year, forum friends!
Please forgive me for my tardiness. I both wanted to quietly celebrate and was a little paranoid about what the end of 2020 would dish out.
Last year was an incredibly challenging time for many of us. We all had to break patterns and habits to keep each other safe. We watched love, heartbreak, fear, and triumph. For a year where many of us stayed inside for the majority of it (and thank you to the essential workers that kept everything going for the rest of us ), a LOT happened.
It’s going to be one heck of a weird chapter in future history books. And the line “hindsight is 20/20” is going to take on some wry humor. But when we look back, I hope that we all remember the good things that happened as well so we can carry them forward along with our lessons about what we can do better as a society.
Stress comes out in funky ways (especially online). Yes, there were times when we Mods had to step in because tempers were flaring or guidelines were being broken.
But as a whole?
I am endlessly proud of our community. This is a group of people that are interested in a brand’s technology offerings. For our part, we backed that with a record-breaking number of app, firmware, and product launches this year. Our dream of making great technology accessible for everyone is well on its way!
But this community is more than that for many people including me. Many of us have made friends in this group. We see familiar faces and smile. We share ideas, tips, and critical information. There are people here that I’ve seen posting here for years now and we have over 30,000 profiles active enough to have reached Trust Level 1!
Together, we all braved 2020 and we made it through. Thank you for being part of this community. I look forward to seeing what 2021 brings and desperately hope it will be better for all of us than 2020!
