Greeting Magentites!

Summer of 2010 for Magento is hotter then ever. Magento is growing at unprecedented speed. And thanks to you there are now over 270,000 registered community members. You read that correctly! Over quarter of a Million.

In order to facilitate the growing community, I’m happy to announce that Rhonda and I have joined Magento in community leadership roles. I’m an avid user of Magento for my own ecommerce site and some of you may have crossed paths with me in the forums. I go by monocat. (long story smile) Joining me to this new quest is Rhonda Rondeau, our new community manager whose primary responsibilities will be interacting with you in the forums and responding developers’ needs within the Magento Community. Rhonda joins us from MySpace where she managed the MySpace Developer Community. She is an enthusiastic individual and eager to assist you all.

We are enthused to be part of enhancing the community and adding our voices. We will be actively monitoring the forums and participate in discussions. Of course a community can’t be ran by itself. We welcome more ambassadors (moderators) to take initiatives by assisting fellow Magentites. Looking forward building great relationships with you all.

We are reviewing current community policies as well as considering new processes to better facilitate the community interaction and contribution. Look forward to new updates as they become available.

Rhonda and I are here to assist you fully. I can be reached at mosses@magento.com. Rhonda at rhonda@magento.com. Please feel free to contact us at any time. We’re looking forward to your thoughts, comments and suggestions.

Go Go Magento!!
