Nominate someone for the Community Spotlight

Inspired by others in the Drupal community? Nominate and interview the people improving Drupal for the Community Spotlight.

A Community Spotlight can be focused on an individual, a team (e.g. a Drupalcon team or the D7UX team), or any project that extends Drupal (e.g. a module, theme, installation profile etc).

To nominate:

1. Create a complete Community Spotlight in a new forum topic
2. Include
* Full Names for each contributor
* d.o./IRC nicks for each contributor
* At least one image: photo, screenshot, illustration (exact instructions coming soon)

3. Feel free to get creative, while remaining relevant to the Drupal community, but here are some suggestions:
Example questions for individuals:
* How did you get involved with Drupal?
* Do you have any advice to anyone just starting with Drupal?
* Can you explain some of the benefits of getting involved with the community and what you get out of it?

Example questions for teams:
* What are/were your primary challenges?
* What advice would you give if you could do it over again?
* Show us the best examples of your work

4. Be sure to link to some examples of their work, include testimonials, project's usage stats etc.

Community Spotlight: Paul Johnson (pdjohnson)

It’s time for another community spotlight, and this month, we’re highlighting a community member who has made huge contributions to the success of the Drupal project and of DrupalCon — and not only through code.

Paul Johnson (pdjohnson) of Manchester is currently the Drupal Director of CTI Digital, and is the social media lead for most DrupalCons. He also maintains the @Drupal Twitter account. Paul has grown the DrupalCon social media program from a small following on twitter to a set of huge, engaged channels.

The Drupal Association sat down with Paul in late January to talk about some of his accomplishments and passions.
