It's all been started 20 years ago... unbelievable.

Let's overlook? Yes:

phpBB 2000
vBulletin 2000
myBB 2002
miniBB 2002
punBB 2003
Simple Machines 2003
Facebook 2004
Reddit 2005 2006
Twitter 2006
Vanilla 2009
Instagram 2010
Discourse 2014
TikTok 2016

Building communities... and their independance... it's been never so sensful. The age of 2000s looks astonishing.

Thank you for looking in, and staying by — all miniBB customers, supporters, sponsors, buyers, owners, forum maintainers. Thank you for your time sharing, ideas, suggestions. Thank you for choosing miniBB as a forum software. It's all worth the experience gained while coding this program — I wouldn't learned life without it.

Great path to follow. 20 years. Amazing.

I suppose right now it all depends... not on me :-)
Now grandpas decide what's next:

Putin vs. Biden

Hello Paul,

Congratulations on the 20th ;-) I was there almost from the beginning ...

Unfortunately I had to shut down my system in 2018. DSGVO was too "dangerous" for me as a hobbyist.
I miss my miniBB! Is and remains for me the best system!

Keep it up!

Best regards -Jaime

Thank you, Jaime! By DSGVO, do you mean "GDPR" — i.e. General Data Protection Regulation? Why it was "dangerous" for you?

Sorry to see you disconnected, but it's the truth of life... I've developed the stable software which by the moment is rarely being used. During these years, I've seen the websites mostly going to nowhere. Almost all forums went to Facebook — the most spying and the most censored project on WWW I've ever seen. People changed their freedom of speech to the right of being included in a bigger virtual society... that's it.

Thank you, Tom.

It's a part of the history, but it's not a history yet :-)
