Whoohoo!! The forum is two years old today!
Time flies when you’re having fun, right!? And what fun we’ve had!
Not only has the forum grown at an exceptional rate, but experienced forum admins are now saying things like this:
How awesome is that!?
Rest assured we won’t be resting on our laurels! To help ensure we stay ahead of the curve and on top of our game we’ll be rolling out two new initiatives this year; a new Moderation Queue and an official Helpers group. Both of these will help put us in good stead to tackle the kinds of challenges that we’re going to face over the coming years. Stay tuned for more details about these in the coming weeks.
Two Semaphore packages up for grabs!
To help us celebrate, Semaphore are giving away TWO of their 12 month Box 2 plans, worth $996 each!
For a chance to win…
- The first person who posts in this thread asking for one of the packages, wins!
- The person who gets the most likes/retweets of a tweet about Semaphore, wins! (Be sure to include the hashtag #SemaphoreCI and let us know your twitter username in this thread if it differs to your forum username. We’ll count the totals in 7 days.)
For those of you who haven’t heard about them, Semaphore lets you test and deploy code at the push of a button with hosted continuous integration and delivery. It’s actually partly built with Elixir - no wonder it’s twice as fast as other similar services, right?
Thank you Semaphore! <3
BTW, if you don’t win, check out our monthly giveaway, or, if you can’t wait, you can get 10% off with your forum discount! Use coupon code ‘elixirforum’.
The forum is what it is because of YOU!
It’s all well and good saying how great the forum is doing, but we can’t not mention one of the most important pieces of the forum puzzle - you. From our moderators and devoted regulars who log in day in day out, to those of you who just pop on now and again or even those who post once and are never to be seen again. All of you, each and every single one of you, put your own mark on the forum in some way or another, and the more you hang out here, the bigger that mark is.
Whether you realise it or not, you make a difference. Your friendly, helpful nature is what makes the forum such a great place and attracts more and more people to the forum and community overall. This is why we go to great lengths with our community building initiatives - you matter greatly and you are a part of the forum family - please don’t ever forget that
What next for the forum?
While we might be two years old today, this is just the beginning! We’ve got the tentative years out of the way pretty smoothly, now, the world is our oyster! There will be fresh challenges to face and overcome, but with your help and support, we’ll take them in our stride. Thank you for being part of the forum and helping shape it into what it is today
