Happy Valentine's Day

 

The Day of Love is here!

More than a ritual, this is a day to feel love, care and to respond, express and connect. Isn't that the essence of a thriving community as well? We care about helping each other, and there are many people who have been here with us doing that for a long time now; selflessly spending a part of their time to make BMC Communities a better place.

 

Our Top Champions

Do you recognize these champions?

 

 

How do we celebrate?

 

This Valentine’s Day, share the love with the Community members, not just the super champions above, who answer your queries and offer helpful advice. Let them know they’ve made your day a bit better.

@mention your champions in a comment below to share a fond memory, and as a token of appreciation you'll receive 143 points in return. Psst... the best story/memory will receive much more points too!

Well, what's CMAD?

 

CMAD stands for Community Manager Appreciation Day, which hails on every fourth Monday of January - that's Today! This is an occasion to recognize, and give back to those superheroes who help you succeed, leveraging the power of people.

Today we will celebrate CMAD with a huge shout out to our beloved community managers, who made BMC Communities what we see today. Some of them would be familiar to you, some work behind the scenes; devising strategies to nurture and grow various programs that you experience here. Let them know how he/she is making an impact and what more they can do to help you.

With 2018 reaching an end, it is time to look back, celebrate the success and growth of BMC Communities which wouldn't be possible without your continuous feedback and support. We also have a fun game for you to unlock some digital gifts.

 

 

Let's celebrate key achievements in 2018

 

More and more people utilize our knowledge articles to find answers to product related queries, many product communities have enabled commenting on their knowledge articles, helping them improve. To ease your access we have made some changes at our authentication system, where you don't have to login again to Communities if you are coming from docs or support. In June, we conducted a communities meetup for India chapter and it was a great experience to connect with our customers, partners and fellow BMCers offline. Many of the attendees could try out the mobile experience live, where we fixed the major concerns around replying to discussions through a mobile device!

 

Yes we had our fair share of setbacks too! We fought together against the spam attacks and because of your help, Communities is now a much safer place. We thank you for your patience and support throughout all the hardships we faced, as a community.

 

Wishing you a season of joy and continued personal and professional success in 2019.
