300 thousand reasons to celebrate!

[Update: Celebration has ended. Raffles no longer take place. Promotion offers are gradually removed].
Joomlapolis has been around since the birth of Joomla and Community Builder, the open source script it supports has been around even more. Our community has just surpassed the 300K mark and we, the Joomlapolitans, are proud about this and feel like celebrating by giving back to Joomla and our membership even more.

It seems like yesterday when our mambojoe.com website passed the torch over to joomlapolis.com as the official home of the Community Builder suite, but in fact it's been over 4+ years since the 'Welcome to Joomlapolis' article was published. During this period a number of incredible milestones figures have been surpassed. Besides reaching the 300K membership milestone we have surpassed the 122 thousand forum post mark, the 2 million download mark and the 50 million website visitor mark!

These are all remarkable achievements which prove that our community is a strong and prosperous one. It is truly a time for celebration and thanks giving, and guess what? That's what we are about to do!

The CB Team and Joomlapolis have always been very active in the Joomla universe. We have participated in the past in various workgroups and have always assisted in making Joomla even better. As a small token of our gratitude, Joomlapolis will sponsor $1000 worth of top developer time to further Joomla 1.6 development. We are proud to be a part of this open source effort and will continue to assist in any way possible. Thank you Joomla!

The 300K festivities don't stop with our Joomla 1.6 sponsoring. Commencing from the registration of our 300K member up to the registration of our 301K user, we have a number of promotional offers in store for our membership.

  • In addition to giving Joomla $1 development sponsoring for every user that subscribes during our celebration period ($1000 as mentioned above), we offering our 2 commercial templates - the MyCommunity template package and the Coolness template package - at the price of 1.
