On November 26, 2023, we’ve reached the 55K mark on Facebook and still counting. Today, December 9, 2023, after Saint Nicholas, we are at over 56K members. Thanks to all our Loyal Followers for your Support! I am so lucky to have such heavenly supporters on Facebook. The continued appreciation and response from all of you have helped us reach this position. Much love! So I would like to take this opportunity to say welcome to everyone and to tell you how grateful I am for you. Thank you, everyone, for choosing our Synology Facebook group, and thank you to everybody lending a helping hand by sharing their experience and expertise to help our fellow members! I plan to keep you updated with Facebook news from time to time so you can be up to date on what is happening in the Synology community.
In the same spirit of contributing to the community, this past two week, I’ve updated 50 Docker containers for you, and made efforts to provide at least one new post a day on the blog. Make sure you visit mariushosting every day to see what’s new and find interesting Docker apps to install on your Synology NAS and use for your home setup or business.
This being said, with over 56K members, the mariushosting Synology Facebook group is the biggest Synology community on Facebook, and THE place to be to interact with your fellow sysadmins! If you also have a Discord account, come join the mariushosting Synology Discord channel too!
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 56K+ 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 6240 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 recent years I have been dealing with an increasing number of haters. I receive heavy insults on a daily basis via communication channels such as email. People talk bad about the work I do, people shamelessly copy and regurgitate my work, they insult me because of my nationality and many more. The nastiest things you can think of, I have heard them. In spite of this, I have kept going without making you a part of what goes on behind the scenes. Your support shown over the years has been vital and that is why mariushosting has gone on.
In all the 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.
Two months ago a new feature came to mariushosting. If you have a Docker Compose or a Docker CLI (code to insert in Task Scheduler) that is not already present on mariushosting, or a code that is different from the one proposed by me in one of my tutorials,🍀 You Can Now Share It on mariushosting to make it available to the community and your fellow Sysadmins. Your compose will be available for free to all visitors that have a Synology NAS that supports Docker.
