    My favorite site on the web. Congrats.

      I enjoy the conversations a lot more here than on Reddit or Hacker News; also, the tone of the people here is much nicer and more relaxed than elsewhere, and this is super important in having meaningful conversations, even when two parties disagree strongly.

        Happy birthday! This is a great community, very welcoming. Congrats to @jcs for making it work – creating a community from scratch is very difficult!

          Thanks, @jcs, it’s a nice place to loiter.

            It’s all downhill from here D:

              Content on Lobsters is always different from HN and Reddit, much more interesting. Great community!

                Let’s thank the awesome moderators making sure this community stays cool!

                  NICE!

                  I’m still hoping I get that blue lobster on refresh.

                    May the odds be forever in your favor!

                      Happy to be here for it! This is a great community with great people.

                        Today might not be the day to say “Make Lobsters Great Again”, but perhaps we will need to in the future.

                        1. 3

                          “Make Lobste.rs Greater Again” perhaps? We should improve its greatness again and again, every day.

                          1. 4

                            Make Lobsters Great, Again!

                          2. 1

                            The day might come when lobsters becomes like Hacker News, but today is not that day!

                          I’ve only been here a few months but can only echo what others have said. This is a great, welcoming community and I not only enjoy participating here but get so much value from the discussions I read, even on topics outside of my core interests.

                          Kudos to @jcs!
