We’re now in the last few hours of 2019 (in Australia - those of you across the Pacific Ocean have a little more time left!) and I wanted to give a shoutout to some of the many people who’ve contributed to this community over the last year.
It’s a big place, with people from many different countries, cultures, languages and perspectives. Scroll down to the Country badges on the Community Badges page for a look at where some other members come from - it’s an impressive list!
Most of our forum discussions remain pretty heavily focused on Envato authors (both established and emerging), but there are also a growing number of customers on here, and other groups like the Affiliates who help attract new customers to the marketplaces. All those groups have very blurred boundaries, of course, and many of you design, sell and buy items throughout the year.
During 2019 we’ve had almost 80,000 posts on this site, across 12,000 topics. Some of our members have been posting since the first days of the original Envato Market forums, and we’ve also seen around 10,000 people make their first post on this site since January 1.
Envato has grown a lot over the year, too - if you haven’t already seen it, check out Collis’ Public Impact Statement for a rundown on our activities across Envato Market, Studio, Elements, Placeit, Twenty20, Milkshake, Mixkit and our various extensions and plugins. 2020 should be another huge year, with a lot of different projects on the horizon.
To cap off the year, I’d like to mention some of the people who’ve been making a difference in this place. I’ll keep adding to it over the next week, and I encourage you to do the same.
