Gah! I missed it again, after a year! WP's forums went live about exactly 2 years ago, on April 4th, 2003, if I am not wrong, with the first post I can find being made on April 6th.
So here's to the longevity of the forums.
Many things have changed over the two years, but I hope the spirit and the attitude of WP will always remain open, and that the community stays together, forever!
Happy Birthday, WordPress Support!
