Author Recognition

OneStop Beer One of the most important things when running a web community is having an ongoing, active conversation with them ...    and part of this is recognizing people in the group and making them feel proud to be part of the group.

With OneStop we've done that in a couple of ways.

First we prominently feature an author of the week on the homepage. There's nothing like coming into the office one week and all your colleagues can see your picture + links to the pages you author on the front page of the most popular technical site in the company ... gets authors lots of Kudos.

The second is occasionally we send out goodies for authors to proudly display in their offices... Beer is really popular and we've brewed a couple of batches that were well received by the authors - people would display the empty bottles when they'd had chance to drink the beer ..  go figure :)

I think it's about time we did another round of beer -- the key is shipping it as 'hair tonic'  ... it's good for your hair  ... really ...
