We have been witnessing extraordinary growth in the recent months. For example, in March we had over 70,000 uploads (9,200 of those were HD) and over two million unique visitors to the website.

We'd like to extend a welcome to all of our new users. Vimeo thrives on community feedback, so remember to let your voice be heard, either in our Forums or in a direct email to your Community Directors, dalas and Blake.

Vimeo is a special community among video sharing websites. To help us keep unoriginal material off the site, use the Flag link on the page where you watch a video. To help us keep the atmosphere pleasant, be respectful and polite with your comments, even when you might disagree with another member.

If we work together, we can keep Vimeo awesome!

tonight I've waited in line 90 minutes, you shouldn't give the extra 500MB to everybody at once, you should give some users Friday some Saturday and some Sunday.

we implemented staggered quota a few months ago, but a large majority still reset on Sunday. We are considering giving people the option to change days themselves.

This is the bestest video site ever, period. You are doing a great job guys, I finally managed to join in. I'm pretty sure that vimeo is gonna be one of the big names in this video/content sharing scene, if not bigger!

There are tons of websites that market to the casual videohobbiest, but Vimeo is where the artists go.

I noticed that the video player does not show up in google reader. For instance, youtube, and flickr video can be watched from within the reader, whereas vimeo you have to click on the link to go and watch the video. Is there a way to watch vimeo videos from within google reader?

That would be great. I think vimeo is by far the best video platform, and the best video community out there. Lot of geeks like myself read stuff in readers, gives an opportunity for new geeks to see how superior the vimeos player and content is to the other clowns.....lol.

I am a Vimeo-Religious.
I go around knocking on peoples houses with my laptop under my arm, to see if I can convert them as well.

If they say no, well they will burn in hell!

Thanks for the survey opportunity to chime in. Just as man cannot live on bread alone, I'm all for Vimeo offering some sort of "premium" service for those who want to $upport Vimeo and benefit from a few extra frills or features. With the number of extremely talented amateur and professional 'movie makers' on this site growing exponentially, a pay for performance approach...e.g. faster uploading by dedicated servers for premium members would get some serious participants.
