Good day everyone! Welcome to an unofficial award ceremony called ‘The Byte Community Awards’!
Thanks to the surge of activity following the news of the beta, I, along with @ryanmccarley, have decided to post shoutouts to those who have contributed the most to the forum as of this month. Not only will this include our inspiring forum stars, but will contain general forum activity, which is a team effort from all of us. Provided these are well-liked, they will be posted monthly by either Ryan or I.
Disclaimer: This award series isn’t an attempt to divide the forums and make users compete against each other, but is a celebration of how far we have come since the announcement of V2. We understand most of you are disappointed as you did not receive the beta yet. We’d like you to consider this ‘ceremony’ as an appreciation for all your hard work and dedication.
Firstly, we have our ‘likes received’ awards. These users never fail to make others laugh, always provide guidance and are generally charming overall. Here are our top 3:
Well done to you guys! Although charming is a bit of a stretch…
Next up, we have our ‘likes given’. These guys prefer to show their support to other users by simply pressing the heart button. Aww, we you guys.
Huge congrats to you lovely lot!
The next awards are for those who can generate a discussion easily (cries in socially awkward):
: In 3rd place, we have @FatJesusMan with 28 topics this past month!
: In 2nd place, we have @Lxnria with 31 topics this past month!
: In 1st place, we have @billauckland with an insane amount of 44 topics this past month!
Now we have the most replies… You guys love to get involved in discussions, and frequently guide people when they need support:
: In 3rd place, we have @billauckland with 406 replies!
: In 2nd place, we have @Daniel with 515 replies!
: In 1st place, we have @midn8ght with 637 replies! That’s over 21 replies everyday! And you wonder why everyone tells you to be quiet…
Moving on to those who have viewed the most topics! These members love to see what’s going on in the community, and always make sure that the topics are appropriate and generate a positive response:
And now for our final awards… This goes out to the people who have devoted their time to reading posts and ensuring they are appropriate:
Now please! Don’t be disheartened if you don’t see your tag among those lists… We have some honourable mentions:
I’d like to thank @alleyredd for her continuous positive responses. Your non-stop positivity brightens up my day, and seeing such lovely replies remind me of how amazing this community really is.
Secondly, I’d like to honour @christyonce! If you don’t follow her byte, you’ll be missing out! She is so funny and has great flair. Keep doing you, girl!
Finally, I’d like to show @ShawdGawd some respect. Although I can’t recall having a discussion with you personally, I have seen your responses enough to know how much of an awesome guy you are.
Now on to forum activity. You may be thinking: ‘It’s not over yet?!’ … Well of course it isn’t! We are so powerful as a community. Thanos has nothing on us!
I’m going to keep this very brief as my hands hurt from typing too much… I’m pretty sure I heard something crack.
Overall forum activity:
- The amount of topics we have created this month has gone up to 662
- The amount of posts created this month is 11.5K, which is also an increase
- We also have a boost in daily engaged users, with 113 overall
- Most popular topic of the month: Testing season is upon us
Again, apologies if you were not mentioned. The honourable mentions were chosen based on whether we feel that you have impacted the forum positively, whilst the individual awards were based on data shown on the ‘user’ page.
Keep this up! We’d love to see newer tags on next month’s awards.
Thanks guys! We’ll see you next month (hopefully)!
