 Today marks the Khoros Community’s 11 year anniversary! Khoros started out as Lithium, a smaller company for peer-to-peer support. We’ve now grown into a robust company with products that span across the digital landscape.

It has been an exciting year here at Khoros! The past year was full of many changes, with the biggest highlight being that Lithium and Spredfast merged to create Khoros.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our community over the years. You’ve helped make it an amazing place to connect, learn, ideate and share knowledge. The Khoros Community wouldn’t be what it is without you.

How time flies - happy anniversary! I have too many favorite moments to pinpoint just one and just like @BrianOblinger I can say this community will always hold a special place in my heart, no matter its name 😉 I'm so thankful for the chance I had to work closely with this community and for the impact it has had on my personal and professional life, as well as the many friends I've made along the journey. Looking forward to the many exciting things ahead!

Happy birthday Khoros Community. I actually really want to say "Lithosphere" as that's the community I remember the most as being the one that I started to participate in. The one where I made lots of fellow Community friends, many of you dear to my heart! The place I learned lots and lots about the Lithium/Khoros product. Where I got amazing inputs and best practices and in the latter years was able to give back a little (I hope 😀)

 

Happy birthday little teenager community.

Happy 11th anniversary, Khoros Community! 🎉

I have to admit.. I still refer to it as Lithosphere from time to time. Ah well, old habits die hard, I guess.

4,5 years ago I became a member as a rookie on Lithium platforms. But thanks to all the amazing content and the helpful members, I learned so much about Lithium. Always providing me with the necessary insights.

One thing I know for sure? Every time I'm stuck or have a question about our Khoros community, you guys help me on my way and give me inspiration and direction.

Keep up the awesome job! What would a community platform/service be without an amazing community of its own.

Cheers!

Wow.

I remember posting this 10 years ago on our first birthday: https://community.khoros.com/t5/Khoros-View-Blog/Happy-Birthday-Lithosphere/ba-p/3839

Kinda amazing to compare the metrics then and now.

So cool to see how long this community has been going, how many iterations, and how many folks have joined and contributed over the years!

It certainly has been a labor of love from everyone here, and I'm looking forward to seeing what the next decade has in store! Keep it up!

Happy 11th Birthday!

Apart from finding tons of help in the dev docs, I love browsing through the product ideas to see what others are coming up with.

We've turned it up to 11! (A hearty 77 years old in dog years ;P) I have used the former "Lithosphere" pretty much daily and have found a lot of insights and ideas. One thing I thought was pretty super was the scavenger hunt we had a while back.

I love the Lithium Community / Lithosphere / Khoros Community / Atlas! I check it daily, if not more often :-).

I have learned a ton from the discussions & documentation here - here is one example: The community recently taught me that I had been managing permissions in a super-way-too-hard way. Yay for this thread that pointed me to some best-practices docs I hadn't previously paid attention to! I have since cleaned up our permissions immensely, and our new documentation on how to set up private sub-communities is much simpler.
