Announcing the Phantom Community Contributor of the Month for April 2017

This month we would like to congratulate Richard Schmidt in-2c-14px as the Phantom Community Contributor of the Month for April 2017. Richard is an individual contributor who has spent a significant amount of time providing in-depth product feedback and feature requests. His feedback spans the areas of Mission Control, Visual Playbook Editor, as well as the core Automation Engine. Product improvements resulting from community feedback is one reason why the Phantom Platform is so powerful. We encourage all of our community members to provide feedback or feature requests when possible! Who knows, it might just earn you a future Contributor of Month title!

To commemorate Richard’s Phantom Contributor of the Month award, he’ll be getting one of our limited edition, Phantom fleece pullovers.

The Phantom Community has been very active this year! We consistently grow in community members each day, with activity in our Phantom Community Slack channel growing in sync. We’ve also had lots of great App and Playbook contributions from our community members. To continue with our history of recognizing leading community contributors, like the HOF announcement for 2016, we are running this parallel recognition program known as the Phantom Contributor of the Month. You can view last the recognized contributor from last month here. The recognition is a way to spotlight someone in the community who went above and beyond by dedicating his/her time to make significant contributions for the benefit of others. Contributions include technical content such as Phantom Apps and Playbooks for the community to share, but also contribution in the form of sharing domain expertise by responding to questions and participating in group discussions. Though sometimes overlooked in other community settings, helping others to find success is a key concept of the Phantom Community. Public Q&A and access to domain experts through the use of the #phantom-community Slack domain is critical to information exchange and making the community useful for everyone.

Congratulations again to Richard for winning the Phantom Contributor of the Month award for April 2017! The Phantom Community appreciates all that you have contributed.

We encourage all members to contribute to the community to make a better experience for everyone involved. Contributions in the form of Phantom Apps and Playbooks, product feature requests and feedback, as well as responses and discussion in the Slack community channel all make the community a better place.
