Re: 6000 members and growing!

Hi Evelyn,

Woha, that's quite a cool map of SuSanA members you have put together there! At first I thought the location of the profile photo corresponded with the physical location but then I realised that is not so.

Nevertheless, it is very pretty! Which nifty little software or website did you use to create this? And while you created this, what did you find regarding the percentage of members who have uploaded a photo of themselves (or a logo of their organisation or something similar) versus those who haven't? My gut feeling is that perhaps about one third of members has edited their forum profile (and added something) but two thirds have not (i.e. those who are either new or haven't posted anything yet).

Regards,
Elisabeth

P.S. I have moved your post into the existing thread where we had announced ealier member number milestones. It is quite nice to have this "history" of how our member numbers have increased. :-)

P.P.S. If anyone now feels inspired to upload their profile photo, but doesn't know how to do this, please see here on how to do it (with video tutorial):

Re: 6000 members and growing!

Hi Elisabeth,

I used www.easymoza.com/index.php?t=11 to create the mosaic. The idea was really nice but the only problem we had was to adapt the size of the photos and wait around 20min while they were uploading. In the end it was really worth it!

Only 1000 members have profile picture, which means around 17% of the forum members. Hopefully the next time we will have all the photos to create nicer things.

Regards,
Evelyn (on behalf of the SuSanA secretariat)
