Dear Khadas Community,
The past year was a trying time for many of us. We were stuck at home during the repeated covid-19 lockdowns, had to endure swab testing and mask wearing, and economies around the world took a big hit. So we’re really glad that you’re still here with us in 2021!
On the bright side, the reduction in human activity has allowed nature to recover. The skies have turned blue, more dolphins and fish are being spotted at sea, and quarantined people report hearing bird song and seeing wild animals roam the streets for the first time.
This time of social isolation and separation also drove many people to seek new friends and companionship online. During 2020, Khadas Forum grew by 993 new members, we had 740 new contributors, and 21,600 new posts - the highest recorded so far!
It is therefore with hopeful feelings that we announce the top 10 contributors for Khadas Forum during the year of 2020. In addition to our senior members, there are also several new winners! Khadas Team always welcomes new contributors to join our ranks.

- Choose the option “year” to show the contribution statistics for this past year.
Due to the increased variety in our member activity for 2020, I was extra careful to sort the table by multiple categories before calculating the final results in my own spreadsheet. This ensures that the results do in fact represent a fair and complete view of each member’s contributions.
The KFCI Bonus rewards our forum members who contribute to building our spirit of community and mutual help. As we venture forward into the unknown of 2021, our sense of community will continue to be essential to ensure continued prosperity for all in our Khadas Community.
