Subject Re: What do we call our Influitive hub?
Date Thu, 10 Apr 2014 08:27:52 GMT
Here's some more on the proposal for our AdvocateHub:

http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/couchdb-dev/201310.mbox/%3CCAPaJBx4xz5=hT9_Yu7OoEYh2Lq2MjwpPR_O9Qb0jWYcXdeHGhA@mail.gmail.com%3E

Read that, then take a read of the SlideShare thing I sent yesterday.
If you get up to speed on this, I'm really looking forward to your
input and help with this initiative!

Okay, so if The Lounge works, then what do we call people who hang out
in the lounge?

Remember that this should feel a bit like a fun thing to be a part of.
Our advocates will be valuable members of the community who are
volunteering to help us with marketing. For many users, being a part
of our AdvocateHub is going to be the primary way they contribute back
to the project.  So while it should be tongue in cheek, you should
feel proud to be a part of it.
