Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Have you considered updating your website a little it looks like it was was made in 1980. Also when did the 100 hour board start and why do not that many people know about it?

-Board at Tech support

A:

Dear person,

Your mom looks like she was made in 1980.

Dear reader,

Wait, we don't look like Facebook? Maybe not, but at least we're not a massive, all-encompassing and deeply encroaching organization whose very founders advocate its dismantling.

But enough about that. I believe we were criticizing a small, grassroots volunteer Q&A website? You do you... I guess.

How did the Board begin? The answer to your questions can be found in glorious detail in the "About Us" section conveniently placed in the left sidebar, like so:

1995 is our theoretical origin, if you were wondering, and our current level of public awareness probably has something to do with other forums available to discuss the internet, the rise of social media, word-of-mouth awareness, our niche focus on BYU and BYU things, and... owls, possibly? I don't know what they know, but it's probably less important than whooooooo they know, if you know what I'm sayin'.

If you are a BYU student and think you can improve upon our totally-volunteer workforce, I invite you to join it by submitting a Board question to us with your email attached, requesting an application. We'll then send you an application, and then you can help make this the kind of weird, collaborative place you'd like it to be.
