We have had a number of community milestones since we launched the community site during the last week of August.
Today I am extremely pleased to announce that we have reached 600 users. Of which 585 have been verified as either Smartthings usernames or independent names.
The rest are pending verification.
With respect to user verifications, I’d like to make everyone aware of how much time and effort @RobinWinbourne has put into this process. He does get some help from the rest of the minions, but he really has taken it heavily upon himself to be engaged in the process. He deserves a lot of credit for his hard work.
I’d also like to acknowledge @bangali @c1arkbar and @einars for being so heavily engaged this past month with the community. These guys combined have written nearly 900 reply’s to posts in this past month alone. They are giving their time day after day to help educate and spread understanding of the platform. Bravo gentlemen.
I’d also like to acknowledge our members. You all have created one of the most impressively active discussion forums I’ve ever been part of.
Some community stats from when the site went live 6 weeks so, to put it in perspective.
We have had:
- 5.6k user visits
- 680 topics created
- 6.5k total user posts
- Avg 17min to first reply post
- 3.9k likes
- 300 bookmarked topics
- 100 accepted solutions
- 200k page views! Ya, 200k
- 35-50 average unique user visits daily
- 1/3 of all traffic is on mobile
I hope these stats give everyone an idea of just how engaged this community is. I can’t state this more emphatically, you all make this community something special!
As webCoRE goes, @ady624 is pounding away at his keyboard faster than the minions can keep up with his work. There is a reason he is Gru! If the minions didn’t know better we might suspect he is a 21st century version of Data (Star Trek TNG). I always ask people to like and tag him in these milestone posts to say thanks for all his hard work, and I ask the same this time. Please reply below and tell us how webcore has become an indispensable part of your home. I will be awarding a special badge to the user with the most unique and powerful story on the benefit of webcore.
I’d also like to let everyone know, while @ady624 has been hard at work on the webCoRE platform and the new mobile app, @ipaterson has been hard at work on the site. I can’t share much detail yet, but we are going to be putting a new landing page on the community, with quick links to a lot of the most used portions of the community and wiki pages. As well as a series of tutorials that the @webcore_minions are developing. It may be another few weeks or a couple of months, but we are hard at work to improve the webCoRE community and wiki user experience.
All things webcore are evolving. And there’s a lot of exciting stuff coming! Stay tuned!
Thank you for your incredible participation in the community.
Here’s to 600!
