A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from TPU!

Another year is drawing to a close, all around the world and here on TechPowerUp as well. A special year, to say the least; it's not the worst in recorded human history, but it's been one of the hardest ever, with more limitations imposed in our lives than in any other we can remember. Most of us have adapted to a new, hopefully temporary reality, one where social distancing and face masks have become commonplace. A reality where countless human lives were lost to an invisible, undiscerning enemy; where economic recession has thrown families and friends out of business or even from their homes. Globalization is indisputable, and while it has many positives, nothing could ever be without fault; the increased interconnectedness of our world means that the system becomes all the more fragile even as it becomes stronger. And while the argument for technology being a potentiator for human loneliness and creating isles of silence between us individuals of the human species presents valid points, one can certainly say that it was technology that helped bridge sentimental and physical gaps for all of us.

We here at TPU couldn't be prouder of the community that has chosen to be with us. All of you, whether you keep yourself signed in all day, hop once daily, or just surf around our community from time to time. TPU long ago stopped being a mere hardware news website, and became a community aggregator—not so much through our own efforts, but because you—and us—are all meant to fold with one another, converse, discuss, and share when given the right environment. Through this environment, we've seen visitor counts that could fill a small city, every day, and there's only been ever more of you throughout this year. Thanks to you, dear reader, we were able to bring you reviews—all 435 of them, and counting—and news posts—3856 and counting, in 2020 alone.

But if TPU is the infrastructure, life and purpose are given to this website by you. And 26,436 of you were online at the same time this year, reading the RTX 3080 launch coverage, marking TPU's highest ever—like Commander Shepard, you endorsed us as your "favorite store in the Citadel". You discussed, shared, and bridged gaps through 226,497 user posts on TPU. And in those posts, readers reacted 221,855 times to content—validating the act of sharing. You as a community are responsible for TPU being ranked #4,990 for global internet traffic—an achievement by any metric, considering the gazillion websites available on Earth (and beyond).

We can only thank you for your time, and thank you for your effort, and thank you for being a part of this community. Onwards to 2021—we'd be honored to see you starside. Oh, and check out this awesome custom TPU wallpaper from our very own Rezasam1!

It's already 12.24 (Christmas Eve) here in Tokyo, albeit still in the morning (06:47), so it's not too early for Christmas.

Merry Christmas to everybody, staff and members alike!
Please enjoy Christmas with your loved ones.

TPU is by far the best when it comes to layout and technical achievements. I especially like how you can't double post, it just auto edits them together. Also, no spam accounts is nice. Lot of forums struggle with that.
