Happy Birthday Motherboards !
It is weirdly gratifying to have peripheral sensation of being a constituent part of some technical organism like this.
Whatever decisions you've made up to now have kept the boards vital and still a lot of fun as well as a great place to catch a short list of parties, otherworld news, etc. So I feel fine deferring to what you may decide about the future of the boards.
For myself, I'm not on Facebook or Twitter so upgrading to include cross-site amenities does not matter to me. Would there be a way to
re-launch and engineer it so all current Mboard members would get their registration migrated?
