Hello, SUMO Nation!

How have you been? We missed you! Some of you have gone on holidays and already came back (to the inaudible – but huge – relief of the hundreds of users who ask questions in the forums and the millions of visitors who read the Knowledge Base). Let’s move on to the updates, shall we?

Welcome, new contributors!

  • … who seem to be enjoying summer away from computers… The way they should! So, no major greeting party for anyone this week, since you’ve been fairly quiet… But, if you just joined us, don’t hesitate – come over and say “hi” in the forums!

  • Expect to see some new moderators later this week in the forums – say “hello!” – more on this coming your way next week.

Thus, between a Firefox for iOS and a Firefox for Desktop and Android released into the wild wide web – that’s a lot of heat! Now I know why it’s so easy to sweat nowadays. Well, maybe there will be some relief in the weeks between releases ;-) Winter is coming! Slowly, but surely…

Keep rocking the helpful web, SUMO Nation!
