Thanks for the kind note, Joe. At the end of the day, you're one of the best human beings I know. That manifested itself in 3 key ways over the years: 1. Mentor - You may be hanging up your skates, but your sage advice and key insights on how to be a good manager, businessperson, and human being live on every single day in my approach. Although those that I interact with don't know it, they're actually interacting with echos of your wisdom (and a little bit of Brian personality thrown in for effect). 2. Manager - You were always great about steering me in the correct direction, especially the times when a little extra emphasis was required. In hindsight, those are the most important lessons I ever learned and I carry them with me today. Everyone needs someone like you in their professional life. 3. Friend - Over the years our relationship evolved into one of my most prized friendships. Our shared love of sport and common sense bound us together far longer than any standard professional relationship ever could. Thanks for always being there for me. Congratulations on an amazing career! It shouldn't be lost that the recommendations you made to customers were literally experienced by millions of community users across the world. Wild stuff when you really sit back and reflect on it. Thanks for everything and enjoy the next season of your life - incredibly well deserved. Brian

Your best bet is to use API calls to grab that data. Depending on how sophisticated your efforts are, you can do some really cool things. Here's what our flow roughly looks like:
Lithium APIs > Alteryx for ETL > Store Data in Amazon Redshift Database > Alteryx for Joining with Other Data Sources + Advanced Analytics + Modeling + Output > Tableau Server for Visualization
I'd love to hear what other folks are doing on this front.

Over the years, the job description of a "Moderator" has changed significantly in various organizations.
The true origin of the role is content moderation, in which their objectives were to read as many posts as possible, apply the community guidelines evenly, and keep order in the community. As these individuals proved their value, we expanded their roles to include many tasks (coordinating programs and events, interfacing with advocates, contributing content). Eventually the roles of Moderator, Administrator, and Community Manager looked more like a spectrum of tasks that an individual may participate in rather than two distinctly separate roles, thus the confusion around what a Moderator actually does.
My view on these roles using a property management metaphor:
Community Manager = Property Manager
Community Administrator = Building Maintenance Staff
Community Moderator = Custodial Staff
To your point, you may develop a role that is a blend of the above three roles depending on your needs. The measurement will follow those decisions.
