The mariushosting Synology Facebook group has recently surpassed a new milestone: we’re now at over 41K members! As always, I like to share with you how our social media presence is going, more specifically, growing – it’s both a joy shared and a way to let you know where fellow Sysadmins are converging! With over 41 thousand members on Facebook, and a few more thousands on Discord, the mariushosting Synology-focused social media communities are where you want to be if you are a Synology owner and user, whether new or seasoned. Our Facebook group, and Discord community too, are the two best resources for the Synology user, packed with information and relevant insights that cater to the most diverse of use-case scenarios and different levels of technical expertise. To also show my support for the Synology community, I have updated over 35 Docker containers in the past three weeks and kept up my writing schedule to provide fellow Sysadmins with a post every single day.
Together, the mariushosting Synology Facebook group and Synology Discord channel represent two of the biggest online Synology communities. And as they continue to grow by welcoming new members every day, their potential to provide support and expertise to Sysadmins becomes greater as well.
Thank you everyone, Moderators & Admins (Anna Anna, Joel Gonzalez, Paul Barrett, Jason Yeo, Sebastian Kochendörfer, Paul Steunebrink, Scott Stevens, Hein Traag, Peter Kay, Stefan Lindeberg, Henry Madsen Jensen) and all group users who have made this possible! And the rest of you who are not yet with us, come join the biggest Synology NAS Facebook group using the link above. We are now 41K+ on Facebook and growing fast! Inspiring others to take a chance on new adventures and grow and learn new and exciting things! And it’s not only Facebook – we also have the biggest dedicated Synology Community on Discord too with over 4600 members. Your Internet friend Marius is working hard every single day to build top Synology communities accessible for free for all who are enthusiastic and passionate about technology.
In all the Docker guides present on mariushosting you will find STEP 1 which says Please Support My work by Making a Donation. Almost 99,9% of the people that install something using my guides forget to support my work, or just ignore STEP 1. I’ve been very honest about this aspect of my work since the beginning: I don’t run any ADS, I don’t require subscriptions, paid or otherwise, I don’t collect IPs, emails, and I don’t have any referral links from Amazon or other merchants. I also don’t have any POP-UPs or COOKIES. The main reason for this is because I want to offer a clean, safe and pleasant user experience to anyone coming to mariushosting. And I truly think it’s important we have this kind of experience in today’s online climate where you never truly know if what you’re reading is genuine content anymore. But for this I require your support. I do self-host so I have devices running 24/7/365. I do all the technical support work, admin work, I test and create content, from informing you of what’s new to providing complex technical tutorials with images and exact instructions and code that I specifically make work for this type of devices, take care of security and all other kinds of updates, and work to improve user experience all the time. But I need to be supported to be able to continue doing this kind of work. I have repeatedly been told over the years how much I have contributed to the community. It’s something I love doing and have been honest about my passion since the beginning. But I also Need The Community to Support me Back to be able to continue doing this work.
