We celebrate today Dotclear's seventh anniversary, and Dotclear Organization's first accounting year .
Dotclear only makes blogs, and it does it well
This sentence by Dotclear's father, Olivier Meunier, pronounced during delivery of the first version, has been since slightly modified and became Dotclear almost only makes blogs, and it does it well. It is true, Dotclear powers a large number of blogs, really large, and also more and more commercial or non-profit web sites, where its easy and fast tweaking is appreciated. Slowly but surely Dotclear becomes more known everyday, and we can bet it will be surprising us again.
For our favorite blog software, the age of reason has now come, and we wish to thank you all for your participation:
- users, you are everyday more numerous to join us, and show everywhere your proudly Dotclear-powered blogs to share your ideas and knowledge
- members of the support forum, you help patiently newcomers and share your tips
- documentation builders, you work everyday to explain Dotclear's code, track misunderstandings and spelling mistakes
- translators, you allow Dotclear to reach the whole world, and even soon the galaxy with a future klingon version
- themes and plugins developers, you add everyday new functions and beautiful layouts to our libraries
- donators, you helped us to keep our independance, and offer new services and better work
You all, please take a seat at our table, to share with us this birthday cake
Dotclear's birthday is also the Organization's
Today we close this first year's accounts, and here a is a short version of the balance that will be presented to the next general assembly:
- members have contributed to more than 3.000 €
- generous donators have on their side contributed to more than 2.000 €
These funds were only used to pay for our servers, no money was spend on cigars and champagne, therefore we still have a bit of cash left for the future
And now ?
Dotclear goes now to big school, and you must be impatient to know what this year will bring as new features. But it is too serious a subject for today, so please relax, have a drink, and sing with us :
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you, Dotclear
Happy birthday toooooo yoooooo !
