making life a little botber every single day! :D
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; hopefully we can keep this going. i will be trying to help.

I used to wonder about there being a kind of service that found a group of the like 25 to 50ish people in the entire world who were the most like you and connected you to them, but I think it happens naturally on the web, and I think botb is a superset of mine

I keep seeing awesome heartfelt threads like this one pop up, and I think that's a testament to just how wonderful this quirky site is. You can take breaks because of life, but every time you come back even in small ways there's always someone friendly that is glad to see you. The site feels like a lovely weird home and you all feel like lovely weird family.

There are so many reasons that I love this place. It respects each and every form of chiptune/pixle art and puts it in its' own category so that each one can shine on its' own merit.

The collective talent on display here is mind blowing, yet I never really see anyone here with a big head about it, and if someone like that does show up they don't last long :).

My favorite thing though is how open and friendly everyone is to help someone new. As the only time something really gets down voted or disapproved of is when it does not fit the specifications of a compo category properly. Yet, for those humble enough to ask for the help to make their entry properly they will get it, in fact people will go out of their way to help.

I don't know if I have ever seen another website more passionate, friendly, talented, yet humble all at the same time about its' craft and THAT my friends is why I love BOTB!

No thanks are required kleeder, this place is so cool that I am pretty confident that I can speak for everyone when I say we are super happy to be here and you're welcome. Thank YOU for making this thread and spreading good vibes.

We all need it :).

As evidenced by these post-comments above, I'll have to say: BotB's quite a unique gem amongst the vast internet desertscape. Its community struck me as something that'll lay down their weapons just to help those who are struggling, and are still struggling to this day, with either making art, trackertunes, software, or just about anything under the sun, at no extra cost.

BotBers, lurkers and activeers, here's my own Verdigrian salute. As a worthy gesture of thanks.
