What’s up with SUMO – 17th July

Hello, SUMO Nation (and Planet Mozilla, woohoo!) It is time again to give you a fresh slew of updates and reminders (I know you love reminders) from the world of SUMO!

New SUMO warriors, assemble & support!

If you joined us recently, don’t hesitate – come over and say “hi” in the forums!

Contributors of the week

  • Philipp – for rounding up bugs/common issues on the forums
  • Michael – for being an all-star host in the forums and helping with the Templates
  • Vanja – for localizing all Serbian Templates and his on-going awesomeness in the l10n corner of SUMO

Gentlemen, we salute you!

Monday SUMO Community meeting

Reminder: the next SUMO Community meeting…

  • …is going to take place on Monday, 20th of July. Join us!
  • If you want to add a discussion topic to upcoming the live meeting agenda:
    • Start a thread in the Community Forums, so that everyone in the community can see what will be discussed and voice their opinion here before Monday (this will make it easier to have an efficient meeting).
    • Please do so as soon as you can before the meeting, so that people have time to read, think, and reply (and also add it to the agenda).

Help needed – thank you!



Support Forum

  • New advanced search will be hopefully coming this quarter!
  • The One and Done SUMO Contributor Support Training is live. Start here!

Knowledge Base

  • A few light experiments are going on for new article request forms and an easier-to-use article submission form via Google Docs.
  • There could be more Windows 10 articles coming up – Joni is working this out with the UX team.

  • Win64 in Firefox 40

Firefox OS

  • Recent launches for 2.0 devices happened in South Africa, Mauritius, Niger, Mali, Senegal, Tunisia and Botswana. Hooray for Africa!
