Subject Re: How Do You Track Someone's First Contribution?

Hi Keith

Thanks for the feedback and details of the process you're  using. BTW I also started at thread
on ComDev and the process of asking permission beforehand came out too (so that is something
that definitely needs to be incorporated).

I like the idea of doing or giving something to celebrate a first contribution, so will start
a thread on Comdev  and see what happens :-)

I've noticed that you track first and highlight people's first contributions on your twitter
