Merry-merry to our Lovely Community! It’s Been Quite Another Amazing Year Around the sun, and we Always Thank you for Your Contributions Here.
The massive volume of giving and dedication that you share every day is not lost on us, not by a long shot. A special shout-out goes to our 36 Splunk Answers moderators who keep the midnight oil burning to ensure that Answers continues to be a friendly, safe, and productive place to get help, advice, and problems solved by your fellow community members. We actually did a training with the group in the fall of 2022 and added five new moderators, so let’s give them a big, warm welcome. Mods constantly work hard to run a tight ship.
When Looking at the Numbers for 2022, Here’s a Snapshot of What's Been Goin' on 👀:
