Today marks the first anniversary of the forum! We launched the forum exactly a year ago to a select set of people and from thereon to everyone in Bengaluru and later to a larger group. The growth of this forum has just been mindblowing!
Quality over quantity
We started the forum with the intent of having a genuine interaction platform for our owners, enthusiasts and us. And we are super happy with how it has shaped. The quality of interaction on the forum has been just phenomenal. Our community is one of the biggest things that we are proud of today and it goes without saying that it couldn’t have been possible without each one of you.
If there’s one place where we are learning from on a daily basis, it’s from you. All the positive comments reaffirms some of our fundamental beliefs on product & brand building - attention to detail and delightful ownership experience. And the not-so-positive comments constantly reminds us and points us to micro-gaps that we need to fill in to reach the pinnacle of great ownership experience. If it wasn’t for this forum and your constant feedback, there is zero doubt that we would have taken months instead of weeks to learn and iterate rapidly.
The forum isn’t truly yours unless it has an active and equal ownership with you Starting today we are bringing on-board two more moderators. Not from our side but two Ather 450 owners. Introducing them, Mr. Rajesh Kav and Mr. Hemanth Anand.
It was a no-brainer. Both of them are one of the oldest owners, know about the product as much as we do or in some cases more than us (like hitting a 110 km range). More importantly, both of them are objective and have no qualms of bashing us in private and public
@rajeshkav has been pushing us to get the FAQs page more than our managers do. So you should see that coming up soon. @hemanth.anand is an active BHPian and will be able to help with some best practices from there.
In the months ahead, we hope to bring on-board more moderators from the community.
Once again thank you from everyone at Team Ather for this kickass community!
