The Team … Guy

Hi all,

In a new series of blog posts, we’re going to introduce you to some members of the StatCounter Team. Some you will know from the support system, others do vital work “in the background” but aren’t usually in contact with members.

Whatever our roles, we think it would be nice for you, our members, to know a little bit about us, the people behind StatCounter. We try to be a friendly, approachable bunch and, in the anonymous world of the internet, we hope these posts will add a “human touch” to the service we provide!

  1. I could see Ben’s point, but I don’t really mind. I think what he has in mind would sort of be like meebo.com’s company blog. Team members get to post blog entries that range from the very technical to the easygoing & very personal [e.g., food choices at Palo Alto, to an employee’s daily routine and Star Trek fanaticism] and these entries are really great reads.

  3. Totally agree with Vectorpedia…….Guy “Rocks”…….

    Guy, that’s very kind of you to take a stray dog in and give it a home. Which country is StatCounter from? I’m curious because you said English is not your first language.

    StatCounter Team Response:
    Hi there!

    StatCounter HQ is in Ireland, but we have team members from all around the world – India, Israel, Hungary, US…so for some of us English is a second (or third!) language!

  4. We can’t see your face! Lol, thanks for all your dedication to Statcounter. We have been using statcounter for more than 3 years now. Loyal users. Keep up the good work, and the posts about the other statcounter members!

  5. hi,

    i may be posting on a wrong entry
    but, i have a feature suggestion… i.e. statistics to rss… so that one can monitor publicly viewed statistics via rss.

    StatCounter Team Response:
    Hi Rupesh,
    Best place for feature requests is our Feature Request Forum – an RSS feed for stats has already been requested here – feel free to join the forum and add your own comments to the thread. No idea of a timeline for release at the moment I’m afraid, but the feature is on our Wish List!
