Shortly after WWDC in 2009, we noticed a traffic spike on Tender resulting from a blog post titled Growing Pains. The post was written by Kevin Hoctor, a Mac developer who had signed up for Tender just one week earlier.
"It's only been a week of working with Tender and a few days of having it live for our customers to use, but I'm thrilled with it. The discussion forum is much more structured than our old Google Groups forum—we can mark issues as open or resolved, assign priority queues to issues, and, best of all, support emails go to the forum so they can't get lost in a cluttered inbox. It's not as large and in charge as FogBugz, but that's part of its appeal. We're even more committed to offering timely and effective support as our customer base continues to grow, and Tender will help us stay on top of our game." - Kevin Hoctor
