As I’m sure you know, today is a very special day on the calendar. Yes, that’s right, it’s the day IT pros around the world take a moment out of their busy lives, open their hearts, feel a burning passion in their souls...and celebrate the drop of Ubisoft’s much anticipated new game “For Honor”! YEAAHHHHHH!!!!!

Or maybe (just maybe) you had something else circled on your calendar for February 14? Let me guess: Valentine’s Day! Yup, that’s happening today, too, and it means you can spend a small fortune on flowers (good ol’ dynamic pricing!), buy some lovely chocolates in a heart-shaped box, and of course, send an annual Ralph Wiggum-inspired “I choo-choo-choose you” card to your beloved.

Talking About Love…

Since it’s the international day of love, chocolate and flowers, the team here at Devolutions wants to collectively send our love to the people who matter most in our professional lives: YOU.

We’re incredibly grateful to have such awesome IT pros in our community. We love it when you tell us what you like, and we love it when you tell us what you want us to change, fix or improve. It’s just a non-stop love fest!

Actually, and I’m being serious here, we do sometimes get critical feedback, and it’s often very useful and helpful to our development and customer support teams. We especially appreciate it when IT pros can give us a clear understanding of the problem or scenario they’re facing, so we can repeat it here and try to find a workaround or solution.

Thank you all for being a part of our community. We never take your support or loyalty for granted, and we always keep in mind that we exist to serve YOU.

The RDMer Awakens

Now, I know what you’re probably thinking: “Where’s my box of chocolates?”

Well, you see, given that we have hundreds of thousands of users around the world, we figured that sending everyone a box of chocolates might be a bit on the insane side (just a bit). And so instead, we put our heads together and realized that we have something even better than a box of chocolates, because you won’t get a stomach ache: an invitation to be part of Devolutions Force!

Devolutions Force is a special portal we recently launched that is designed to show our appreciation, support our community, and help hardworking IT pros have some fun by participating in enjoyable challenges!  

Each time you complete a challenge, you’ll earn points that unlock badges and you’ll start to ascend the ranks from Apprentice to Knight to top-of-the-heap Master. Plus, you can redeem points for all kinds of cool stuff, like gift cards, RDM licenses, Devolutions gear, and more. Of course, joining Devolutions Force is completely FREE and we never try to sell you anything.

If you’re interested in learning more or joining up, please send me an email at jdupont@devolutions.net, and I’ll personally send you an invitation.

“So…Do You Like Stuff?”

OK look, we’re trying to play it cool here, but we’re getting kind of anxious: we’ve spent the last few minutes telling you how much we love you, but we don’t really know if you feel the same way. I guess what we’re saying, in true geek fashion, is that we really hope that the feeling is mutual.

If it is, then maybe you could take a moment and head to one (if not all) of the following platforms, and write a few words?

A sonnet would be nice, but we think a review of your RDM experience might be more practical. And if there’s any other platform where we should have a presence, please let me know. 

Thanks again, and with a whole lotta love,

Joey & the whole Devolutions’ Team
