If you have been on Drupal.org today, you may have noticed something interesting near the bottom of the page. At some point during the past 24 hours, the millionth user joined Drupal.org!

It's worth taking a moment to think about. A million registered users. 228 countries. 181 languages. And counting.

As Dries pointed out in his keynote at Prague, more than 1,600 people have contributed to Drupal 8. That’s nearly double the number of contributors for Drupal 7.

The Drupal community is truly global and it’s always growing, always moving forward, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Here’s to the next 1 million!
