DuckDuckGo friends, happy new year!

In 2013, over one billion searches were made on DuckDuckGo. Needless to say, it was a great year for us.

New Instant Answers

From the very beginning, we saw DuckDuckHack as a place where anyone can start sharing and creating instant answers for DuckDuckGo. You’ve probably seen some of these instant answers before—we’ve had them for movies, books, the weather, programming languages, and even funny webcomics.

We’ve gotten a lot of amazing ones over the past few weeks, and, although some of these are a bit technical, I’d like to share them with you before we close out 2013.

dukgo.com is now duck.co!

Before we created our own forum here on the community platform, we were using 2 different domains for the community platform and the old forum:
- dukgo.com (community platform)
- duck.co (discussions forum)

Now that the entire DuckDuckGo community, forums, and ideas are consolidated here, everything can be operated on 1 domain: Duck.co
This makes sharing (and remembering) the DuckDuckGo Community much easier! Any old URLs will still work and forward directly to duck.co (e.g. https://dukgo.com/blog will automatically go to https://duck.co/blog

Currently, this only involves the web platform, not the XMPP service. On XMPP, nothing has changed for you! The domain is still dukgo.com for the XMPP server, and we are working hard on making duck.co an available XMPP domain for your account too.

Dear DuckDuckGo friends,

We're very happy to report that our search traffic remained above 110 million searches last month like the month before, which means a lot of the people who've tried us out over the past few months have decided to stay. We're sure a lot of those new DuckDuckGo users were introduced by people on this list so thank you!

Dear DuckDuckGo friends,

The last few weeks have seen a lot of privacy news around the United States' PRISM program and related programs in the US and in other countries. We started seeing increased interest in DuckDuckGo right after the story broke, and last month we totaled over 75 million queries, up from just over 50 million in May: https://duckduckgo.com/traffic/

Help us manage translations!

Thanks to those of you that have spread privacy and DuckDuckGo, our traffic has nearly doubled in the last couple weeks. Many of our new users are coming from areas outside the United States and, as part of our ongoing effort to provide multiple languages, we need your help.

More translations, more management

The New Notification System

In the last few weeks, I've worked hard to add a notification system to the community platform. It turned out that it was a visually complex topic, as we need to show those notifications for you on the web and also through email. Plus, we have several content types (and comments on those types), comments on comments, comments on comments on content types and so ;). It was getting complex and it required a massive cleanup to reach the point we have now! So, let me introduce to you to...
