Thirteen years ago (on September 20th, 2009) Off Topix originally launched as the Wober Discussion Community. We've gone through several transformations over the years. Back in 2009 we started out on a free forum software called phpBB. Once the community started to gain some traction I opted to convert the forum to a paid software. vBulletin was the hot software at the time so I bought a license for that and switched over to that platform for a while. After that we spent some time on IPB, MyBB and finally landed on Xenforo. In 2016 the forum closed it's doors and after a 6 year hiatus, we returned in June 2022. We returned to the internet with a fresh new identity! The forum was rebranded and relaunched as Off Topix. Members (old and new) swarmed back to the forum when they heard we were open again and activity has been booming! OT truly is an amazing community and I am thrilled to announce our 13th anniversary!

Happy birthday OT!

Cheers to many many more anniversaries!

Your friendly OT Staff Team
As of today it's been 6 months since OffTopix.com relaunched! Half a year!

Since reopening in June, we've seen:
  • Around 100 original Wober have logged back into their accounts to reconnect with old friends!
  • Nearly 130 new members have joined our community!
  • The community's overall post count has increased by 60,000 posts!
  • 4,000 new discussion threads have been created!
  • We're averaging 10,000 posts a month which means we've been extremely chatty!
  • We've cultivated a laid back and down to earth atmosphere where all members feel comfortable expressing themselves.
I just wanted to say thank you to all the members over at OffTopix.com!

I am pleased to announce that Off Topix has reached 40,000 threads!

OffTopix.com's post count is nearly 515,000 which means when a member creates a thread there, conversations happen!

If you do the math, on average any thread posted there gets around 13 replies. Of course there are some threads that get less replies and some that get way more (Chit Chat Zone for example).

I am happy we have all these exciting milestones to celebrate!

Happy chatting folks!

Your friendly OT Staff Team
