As we all await Community 2.0, let us take a moment and give respect to community 1.x (and the mods that kept it together.)
Community 1.x had its faults, to be sure. But for as frustrating as it could be sometimes, it did its job. It was integral in creating our real DCU community and the friendships we’ve grown along the way.
Do I anxiously await 2.0? Ab-so-freakin-loutley. But, 1.0 will always be special, even for all its…uhmmm…idiosyncrasies. It helped bring us together, sparked lively debate on virtually all things DC, it gave birth to watch-alongs, book clubs, Answer the Question trivia contests.
While I’m not sure how much it will be missed, for those of us that “thrived and survived” this first year, it will also hold great memories.
Hats off to the mods who kept it running as smooth as possible. (Sometimes I think with spit, bubblegum, bailing wire, duct tape, the power of positive thinking and most of all a lot of hard work.)
Community 1.x had its foibles, but it will remain a legend in the DCU.
In the brief time we have left, what is your fondest memory of 1.0?
