2018 has been a huge year for the e-Conveyancing Community and with today being the last day of the year for many of us, I thought it would be a good time to look back.
There's a lot of new display pics in Community this year - 2,880 new members joined us so we're nearly double the size now!
There were over one and a half million page views and between monitoring PEXA workspaces for the Total Funds Required, or for a Mortgagee to finally sign off , you've spent 737,031 hours here in Community... I wonder who's getting that bill. .
You've made 5,461 posts - most of those were by @DMc of course and somehow we've had 83,146 unique visitors, just in the last 6 months.... can't tell if that's because we have such an interesting Community or if there's a bot-net setup to like all of @EmilyBilling's posts 853 Emily! I'll never catch her at this rate!
It's been great as a Community Manager to sit back and see so many of you answering questions for your peers, helping each other through this digital transformation. I'm really proud that Community has become a space where we can collaborate, come together and work through problems; it's was very cool to see banks working with one-another and competing firms offering each other advice.
We started our first Super User program, recognising the extra effort some of our Community members do to help others and the time they spend here.
For those of you who made it, we loved having you here in the Melbourne office - clearly I can't paint, my poor frog looked like it was dribbling green goo, but it was a great night and fantastic to put names to everyone's faces.
We'll be running our Super User program again in 2019 and inviting new people. One thing we'd like to do differently is have a Community nominated Super User. More details will follow in the New Year so keep an eye out when you get back from the Summer Holidays.
Our Super Users Program won't be the only new thing in 2019 - there's a lot of new features on the roadmap for the start of next year - new banner images, a new group launching for Queensland, a new Webinar page and a new page for our Super Users are just a couple of thing on the board.
That's it from me, I'll be off Rock Climbing and Kayaking over the holidays, @AnnaHardie is about to set off on her adventure around the world (we're hoping she'll make it back next March) and @EmilyBilling's having a staycation (which I think technically makes her the one on call ).
@Josh_McCutcheon and @IsaacK from our support team will be your Community Managers over the Christmas period and they're really excited to be looking after your Community - so be nice!
Have a wonderful Christmas everyone, looking at the PEXA transaction volumes over the last few weeks I think everyone deserves a good break!
