2012 was the first full year of AstroBin's life, as the site was launched in November 2011. So let's wrap the year up. Almost 200,000 people visited the site, totaling almost 4 million page views!
That's way beyond my expectations, so it was a great year!
I would like to give a huge thanks to:
- The 20+ people who have helped translate the site to 13 languages. We are all indebted to them. AstroBin contains around 10,000 words, so it was no picnic.
- The dozens and dozens people who have helped by reporting bugs, and making requests. A lot of the best features of AstroBin have been suggestions coming from you users.
- All those who have been active with AstroBin Questions, the Q&A website for astrophotography, who have helped create a small community there.
- Carine Souplet of Astronomie Magazine, a French publication, and Luigi Fontana of Nuovo Orione, an Italian publication, for writing and publishing articles about AstroBin.
- Every one who has blogged about AstroBin, or put a link on their website, or talked about AstroBin with their club members or other friends.
- Every single one of you for doing a great job with not abusing the site. There hasn't been a single incident.
Thank you all and a happy and clear 2013!
