Re: 3rd Anniversary of SuSanA discussion forum!

Belated Happy Anniversary and Congratulation to all team members who made their effort for raising the profile of SuSanA Discussion Forum.

Very impressive graph and look forward to seeing similar growth in next anniversary. We need to bring more friends who really do the work in the field to disseminate the right information.

Re: 3rd Anniversary of SuSanA discussion forum!

Dear SuSanA Forum,

Also a happy birthday from me for your third birthday!

File Attachment:


You have come a long way since your second birthday (forum.susana.org/forum/categories/10-by-...ay-susana-forum#4987), continously growing and changing.

As every proud parent, I am monitoring your growth carefully, and it is impressive (even just in the last year you have grown by 1200 members!):



Of course you have your ups and downs ("terrible twos"?) but we know that you are always able to bounce back:



You have many supporters and an excellent godfather who has invested money in providing an environment to foster your growth (German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) who is providing funds to Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH 's sanitation program to operate the SuSanA secretariat since early 2007).

Also since end of 2012 another friendly godfather has come to the party and given financial support as well as additional friends who have supported your growth (forum.susana.org/forum/categories/139-in...ates-foundation#2599), and who will - with a bit of luck - continue to do so (your birthday present is in the making but not yet quite ready for announcement!).

Edit on 14 July 2014: this is the birthday present that I was referring to: further co-funding from the Gates Foundation:
sanitationupdates.wordpress.com/2014/07/...na-discussion-forum/


It's been an honour and great pleasure for me - as one of the "parents", as well as now one of the moderators and community managers - to be with you and I look forward to exciting and stimulating times ahead with you, the SuSanA Discussion Forum and all its members, supporters and friends! Thank you.

Regards,
Elisabeth

Re: Happy 2 year birthday SuSanA Forum!!!!!

I would like to wish the SuSanA forum a very Happy Birthday!! I still can’t believe that it has been 2 years! All the discussions in the forum have been very helpful particularly for us working in developing countries and the forum has truly become a powerful platform in the sanitation sector.
I am very proud of the forum and thank everyone who has dedicated their time to make it a success.

Best regards and greetings from Kenya,

Re: Happy 2 year birthday SuSanA Forum!!!!!

Dear SuSanA Forum, Happy Happy belated Birthday!

I'm very thankful for the support by the SuSanA team and the community! The MoSan toilets only became known by the forum, by your contribution, ideas and inputs! For me the forum is a great source for inspiration, collecting feedback and new insights! It helped me a lot to reflect on my work and find answers to new questions.

I just checked the statistics and I'm overwhelmed. The first thread about the MoSan toilets got 16.041 views, in total 64 replies and I'm the 20th most active user! Amazing! I'm very happy to be part of it!

Many thanks to the SuSanA Team, the readers and active users!
I'm looking forward to new discussions!

Best,
Mona

Re: Happy 2 year birthday SuSanA Forum!!!!!

Dear all,
it is also great for me to see what has happened with the forum until now and how this brought the idea of crowd intelligence in the middle of the sustainable sanitation community.
Succeeding Phillip as website manager and team member of the SuSanA secretariat I was involved in the creation of the digest service which I think helped all of us to make the amount of information better accessible.
I am really looking forward to seeing more and more people being part of the crowd!

And thanks to the forum managers - you are really doing a great job!

Have a nice evening and a great summertime!

Best,
Enno

Re: Happy 2 year birthday SuSanA Forum!!!!!

Dear all,

even though I am currently not so activly contributing to the forum, it is and has been of great value to my work. It keeps me update on trends, events, research and all sorts of opinion, since I usually screen through the weekly digest. It also provides a perfect base for getting valueable feedback from colleagues to some of my technical questions. I hope this forum continues to grow and to be relevant for the sanitation sector in future. Congrats to the community managers that are doing a fantastic job in the background!!!
