Glad to hear you all seem to like it. We are trying to make it easier to do the things that you were already doing.
I have been enjoying checking it every morning. It updates daily, so no need to check it hourly or anything. Once a day will keep you up to speed.
Tim, to your point, we are only showing "anniversaries" for folks who have posted at least once, but there are people who post for a community-only contests and then we don't hear from them again. That is why we are also showing "First Posts" by new members. Generally, when you all see new members pop-up, you welcome them graciously and immediately give them reasons to stay.
It is my hope that by next year, the anniversaries will not be unfamiliar screen names. We have gotten a number of strong members (and even a few ambassadors) through contests.
We will also be showing "level ups" as they happen.
what about maybe only showing anniversaries for people with a certain number of posts, like 10, 50, or 100? that should eliminate the one and doners and if you've been here a year, you most likely have at least 50 or 100 posts.
