All Timelines on Reddit

Hey all! Just a brief update.

I had a forum before, but that ended up working badly. Not because people weren’t participating (there was promise there), but because it opened up some back doors for hackers. Unfortunately, I don’t have the technical skill or the money to afford quality security for something like that. So instead, I’ve created a subreddit.

Hopefully, this subreddit will allow all of us to discuss the timelines, any problems they may have, or any new timelines you might like me to create. So please subscribe to the subreddit, and let’s get talking!
