i've been active on this site for about a year now. as of this writing, three hundred and twenty something entries and still going strong!
when i first saw botb.. it was so exciting, i wanted to participate so bad. remember uploading my first hastily constructed stupid-as-heck .it to an allgear.. and that was it, already the site was part of me, and it's been part of me since. was actually kind of overwhelming, had to take a few months off after joining, waiting until i was ready to really dive in. i picked a good time: 2020 was an epic year for the site.
it's a good website. it's human. it's flawed. it's orderly, it's chaotic. it's reasonably wholesome! it's got a history featuring all kinds of characters. there's so much amazing art and music, hell there's so much awful art and music, i know because i'm a contributor of some of it. i appreciate it all. the whole thing is amazing. i cherish the personal connections i've made, many of which are based simply in mutual nerding out over weird noises, which itself is a special, precious thing. 2021 is shaping up to be another epic year for battleofthebits.org; hopefully we can keep this going. i will be trying to help.
