It is with great honor and my privilege to announce to you that the Tom’s Hardware Community has, as of this week, surpassed its one millionth registered user!
For the last few years, our community has been growing by leaps and bounds, and we’re pushing forward in every way to make the Tom’s Community the best gathering of tech experts and enthusiasts anywhere in the world. From CPU’s to motherboards, overclocking to case mods, the best and worst of the graphics cards scene and more operating systems than you can shake a stick at – Tom’s is where it’s at if it’s tech being talked about.
I’d like to take a moment to thank an incredibly awesome community team of Moderators and Community Reporters who helped make this happen. A special thanks particularly to the mods for keeping the forums safe, clean and secure for our users. It’s a thankless job playing whack-a-mole with spammers and battling wave after wave of flamebaiting forum trolls, but our community is better for it and the results of that endeavor are clear.
A deep debt of gratitude and shout out to reynod, Mousemonkey, mrface, Maziar, aford10, arthurh, jaydeejohn, OvrClkr, randomizer, saint19, The_Prophecy, CompTIA_rep, Leaps-from-Shadows, jsc, hunter315, Proximon, Nikorr, Pyree, rubix_1011, amdfangirl, MU_engineer, jimmysmitty, tecmo34, BaronMatrix, Emerald, JasonW, riser, sublifer, tu_illegalamigo, r_manic, Major7up, buwish and SR-71 Blackbird for helping out.
With a community one million users strong now, we’re renewing our commitment to bring you the very best forum community we can, and with that in mind, I want to remind everyone to check out the open beta test currently underway for our new forum platform update coming at the beginning of the year. Here’s the link to the Open Beta forum where you’ll find easy directions on how to get a sneak peak of the new system:
This is your opportunity to provide input on how we’re going to move forward with the development of our forum, and your input is very much welcome and encouraged. We want to know what you like, what you dislike, what you want to stay the same and what you want to change – and now’s the time to tell us. Fair warning and advance notice, after the launch, I’ll be directing the loudest of the anti-new-platform-update whiners to this post in lieu of my traditional “told-you-so/you-totally-had-your-chance” hula dance. We want your feedback now when it matters most, and hoping all goes well, next year we may have the immense delight once more of announcing another million users for Tom’s Hardware!
Thanks so much for being with us, and I’ll see you on the forum!
Community Manager, Tom’s Hardware
