If you've listened to the podcast this week, or seen the blogs, or haven't been hiding under a rock, then you've heard that we here at DevCentral have entered our community into Forrester's Groundswell awards.  We're very excited to be able to add our hat to the ring, as it were, and it's really thanks to all of you out there in DCLand.

We've entered in the "Supporting"  category, and that's really all about how much the awesome community we get to be a part of is out there helping each other every day.  The direct quote is "SUPPORTING. Help customers support each other to solve each other's problems."  If that isn't DC to a T, then I don't know what is.

I'm blown away every single day as we get more and more new users, more posts to the forums, more wiki updates, and more questions being asked just about everywhere...and yet the community keeps stepping up to the plate, and helping out where needed.  There's no way we could do what we do without as much involvement, commitment and as many contributions as you all provide, and that's just hawesome. So from me, and all of us, a great big "Thanks, Dudes!".

To submit for the contest we had to come up with a submission page that showed a lot of what's going on in the community. I have to say I was honestly shocked when we got most of it on one page. Holy cow is there a bunch of stuff happening, all the time!  You can check it out here. As you'll see on that page, we could really use your votes to make sure everyone knows what's going on here with DC, and how amazing it is.  So...vote now! We really appreciate it.

I don't really know what else to say, to be honest.  You guys rock. You let us do what we're doing, and you're excited about it the entire time.  Thank you for being such rockstars and making DC what it is. It's pretty amazing when I stop and think about the last few years, and what's happened. Let's keep the train rolling, and turn the people that never thought this "community" thing made sense, especially for F5, on their ears.
