My Notepad was my first true collaboration project. It was a general discussion forum, originally hosted by ProBoards for two years before being moved to its own domain and starting afresh with the MyBB forum software.
As a forum with a generalized structure, over its five-year run, it accumulated a total of 138 members, 1,044 threads, and 36,887 posts.
My Notepad was taken offline during the winter of 2013.
Through this project, I made many friends, but there's one in particular that I'd like to mention; Mark. He was the owner of this project, and the very first person that I became friends with online. We're still friends to this day, and it's because of him that DylRicho exists at all.
- I moderated content posted by other users to ensure it complied with the rules of the forum;
- I issued warnings and/or bans to users that were found to have broken these rules;
- I designed default avatars for user profiles;
- I designed theme elements (e.g., BBCode icons and emoticons);
- I helped identify and resolve any theme-related complications;
- I archived threads that were no longer required;
- I helped approve/deny affiliation requests;
- I ensured the forum software was kept up to date (MyBB).

Compatibility was specifically tested in the three most popular Web browsers at the time, and a MyBB plugin was used to serve a dedicated mobile version of the forum for a more enjoyable experience on devices with smaller viewports.
