What’s up with SUMO – End of Year Special!

Hello, SUMO Nation!

This is it, the final bell, the curtain going down… for 2015! Let’s take a look at what took place and peek beyond the curtain hiding 2016 ;-). Grab a glass of your favourite drink and read along.

It has been quite a ride, and we have seen a fair share of great and not-so-great things happen on and around the Web. Thank you for sticking with us through thick & thin! Your continuous presence and activity is what keeps everyone in the community going and people around the world happy with their Mozilla-flavoured open source experience. The Web needs you!

Contributors of the week year

  • Every single one of you. Just like last year :-) We salute you!

SUMO Community Meetings

  • Reminder: if you want to add a discussion topic to the upcoming 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).
    • If you can, please attend the meeting in person (or via IRC), so we can follow up on your discussion topic during the meeting with your feedback.

Developers / Kitsune

Community / Events

  • We had the great honour and privilege to meet some of you in person during several events, big and small, across the globe. We hope to see more of you in 2016!
  • We saw several communities around the world organizing great events that highlighted the great work done by you under SUMO’s banner. Whether in India, Taiwan, Ivory Coast, Bangladesh or Bulgaria, you made sure that the inspirational tale of SUMO was heard and received. We are looking forward to more events organized by you!
  • Ongoing reminder: if you think you can benefit from getting a second-hand device to help you with contributing to SUMO, you know where to find us.

Support Forum / Social Networks

  • Thousands of users received your patient, understanding, and kind help. You did not falter despite many launches, last-minute changes and unexpected news. You are the helpful voices at the heart of SUMO – thank you!
  • We could write only about Army of Awesome on Twitter… But that wouldn’t be the full picture :-) Many of you have gone above and beyond, helping confused or angry users on Facebook, IRC, and in all the other places that the denizens of the Web gather and mingle. You bring help where nobody expects it – thank you!

Knowledge Base / Localization

What’s your story from 2015?

The world of Mozilla and SUMO spreads far and wide, way beyond the pages of this blog – chances are you have SUMO stories that you’d like to share with us – please do so, in the comments below this post – we’re looking forward to hearing from you!

Here’s to a great 2016! May it bring you many happy moments – and we hope some of them will be connected with Mozilla and SUMO :-) Take care, friends!

    Hello guys,
    How was your 2015 year ? At the side of mine, the year was supperb for me. As a Computer Science student, I have join every site which is related with computer or like those.
    The Mozilla was best of them. As far i guess, I was joined Mozilla in April 2015 as a SUMOian. It’s just supperb. I have got a lots of experience about Mozilla Support foram. & I have also got many Mozillian friends here. I have just translated some articles in my local language bangla. But just for this little work, i have got a lots of Prizes, Respect & Enjoy.
    At last I will say, “Love You Mozilla & the team”

    …..Happy New Year, 2016…..
