Matterport Forum 1st Anniversary 26 Aug 2015564

Thank you for helping create the Matterport User Group Forum.

When We Get Around launched the MUG Forum on 26 August 2014 – powered by NinjaPost.com – our vision was to create a community of Matterport users getting help and helping others with Matterport capture, creation and sharing.

In the last 30 days, we've had 53,000 page views from 14,000 visits of 6,000 posts among 600 thread topics. While the Forum has 438 members, we typically have 3-4 times as many daily visits by non-members. We have as many as 800+ daily visitors to the Forum. Today, we're growing at the rate of 70 new members a month.

I getting emails and private messages about how the Forum has helped you.

Now through Wednesday, 26 August 2015, I am asking you to post your thank you notes / love letters to this thread instead ... to help us attracted even more Forum members to help contribute to the MUG community:

1. an example of how the Forum has helped you
2. if you bought a Matterport Pro 3D Camera as a result of the Forum
3. if you got a new client as a result of our Forum Sponsor, our Referral Network of Matterport Pro 3D Camera Photographers and Real Estate Agents

If you are reading this - and have not joined the Forum - please join today. It's free.

On a personal note about all the recently announced new Matterport features in Showcase 2.0, it was gratifying to receive this email from Matterport Founder Matt Bell Wednesday (12 August 2015): "Your forum members' feedback was very helpful in helping us choose and prioritize features for Showcase 2.0. It's great to have a passionate group of users who are eager to help shape the product."

You (All) Rock! You did that!

While we are a cranky bunch at times, we all Matterport (that's why we are early adaptors) AND we want the Matterport platform to be even better IMMEDIATELY.

So, while we are quick to point out the slightest pimple, I'm sure Matterport knows that are hearts are all in the right place. We (all) just would like the future to arrive sooner (please).

I raise my MUG to thank you for helping create a robust community of passion Matterpeeps: Peeps that help each other out with super-fast response times.

Thanks again for sharing your love of the Forum below.

Your Matterpeep,

Dan Smigrod

Thank you Dan for your help and labor of love!
After much reading (nearly every post), I purchased a Matterport via a forum member (thank you sir!), executed several scans, received great advice on pricing, execution and strategy to determine my business model.
I found this forum to be very refreshing as each member is upbeat, positive and has a innovation mindset.
Very grateful to be part of this community.

I signed up with MUG last March. I wanted to find out if purchasing would be right for me. I wanted to find out what the caveats to the system were and know that I could use it effectively. I received my camera the last day of July. I have to say this technology is truly amazing! I really appreciate all the information contained in the MUG posts. If I need and answer I research it there. If I ask a question there is always several quick answers. Many Thanks to all who participate and share their knowledge. I know MUG is a vital part of everyone's experience with their Matterport system!
Thank You All Again
Dave F.

Dear Dan,

Thank you so much for providing all of the Matterport 3D information. It was the reason I purchased the camera.
I have used the forum to help tweak my computer to work well with the Matterport software. Thanks again.

This community for me (and I don't even have my camera yet) has been a great experience helping me move into what will be my first business.

I often remark on how great the community is, being such great people with exceptional knowledge and a willingness to encourage and help others succeed.

So ... be proud of what you have created!

Stephen.

We signed up with MUG only this summer. We create 2D and 3D floor plans (both furnished and unfurmished) out of Matterport scans, among other sources. Recently we started to add dimensions and room labels. [Save 10% with Promo Code: DSGA11]

MUG and Dan personally has helped us launch this service to the Matterport community. We've received real business through this forum, for which we are truly greatful. We look foraward to working with everyone here.

Many happy returns MUG <3

Cheers,

Petra Soderling

This has been a solid foundation for support and fact or data checking with other users. We get faster support here from the users and a great resource for problems from the user, but also a fact checker to confirm we are getting similar responses from Matterport about the same or similar issues.
Thank you again Dan

I must say when I found We Get Around early last year I was desperate for some answers to areas which sadly MP did not cover. If it wasn't for the early group of members who started to discuss these issues that these questions finally became clear.

I read occasionally these same question come up again and again and if it wasn't for you and your form we would all be left in the dark. Thanks again Dan for all the incredible effort you've put into making this site what it is today.

All the best
Gary

I received this kind email today from someone that is buying the Matterport camera today:

"Thanks for all your responses and blog. I went through the forum last night till I was bleary-eyed. I might have read all 6,000 posts. I also talked with ... at Matterport so I am good to go. I am ordering the camera this morning and looking forward to the process. Will join the forum this evening. Thanks for all your help."

Always nice to hear how the Forum is helping both members (and soon-to-be members).

How about you? Care to post a note here to help celebrate the Forum's 1st anniversary?

Thanks,

Dan

So while I might do some occasional work on the side I am also teaching Kim how to use the Matterport in her profession as well. It will add great value to her listings.

I found this group via Google and it seems much more active than the Matterport Forum. We've also done a bit of business in the past with Dan (hey Dan).
I'm looking forward to learning more and sharing some of the projects we do. We can all learn from other peoples experiences. ...

Cheers
