SIGGRAPH 2015 was from 9th to 13th August. These 5 days plus travel time to and from clashed with our private beta starting from 4th August. This drained the site of some of its experts for a week. At least one expert was affected by this, as can be seen from this comment:
Sorry, I'm at SIGGRAPH and have absolutely no free time (except to write this comment). Someone else should feel free to write an answer using the links in my comments. – Rahul
There is no particular action required from this meta post. It serves two purposes:
- A way of smiling nicely at Stack Exchange staff to say "What we're achieving here is despite having this clash with the graphics conference.
- A way of saying thank you to everyone contributing and to say "Keep up the good work".
It would be interesting to have an idea of how many people from this private beta were at SIGGRAPH and therefore unable to spare time for the private beta for that week.
If it's just the one person then my thank you to everyone still stands...
