With our 10th anniversary coming up we should consider some all-time best awards?

This idea came to me when I stumbled on this bit of Alexa.com data: Our TOP report? > One of our members has 166k visits to his only report. A champion writer like Marianne achieves an average of about 25k readers. Why is this? Daniel spells Bangkok "Bankok" and has the only report with that spelling on the entire internet!!!

The report is weak but I am sure visitors explored our other pages.

This does not mean that we all neglect spelling now but perhaps keywords ("tags") with alternative spelling and words in other languages at the bottom of reports would promote our material?
I have always tried to include local terms in my reports and photo descriptions, makes a difference!

Hi Rudi and all Globies!

That is an interesting idea! I think we should definitely do something about the 10th Anniversary (including the gathering!), although I have only been a member for a mere fifth of the time...

It would be hard to choose a report of the decade! Perhaps we could offer this responsibility to the members, who would be able to nominate, say 3 reports. How about that?

Uh, how would one check the number of readers of a report, Rudi?

Kind regards
Krys

A global gathering would be great just for the anniversary but we cannot expect it to be a big thing as we live so wide apart. Most our members are in the USA, should we meet in Las Vegas? I suggest each country or city have a small gathering occasionally even if only two or three members like I have done with Pesu and Jill. We can then share our experiences by photos, reports and videos.

We can only guess the number of readers :-) We should have counters, well Andy does?

Hi Rudi,
some members have already shown their interest in a 'European' gathering in Munich this summer. What do you (and Andy of course!) think about this?
Best regards - Petra
