The Big Monzo Community "2022 in Review" Poll!

So here’s something a bit different:

the first Monzo Community Year in Review!

We’ll do the usual Big Poll after Christmas where we think about what we’d like from Monzo in the future, but right now is a time to look back, give thanks and do a bit of a 2022 recap in the process!

So, with awards* up for grabs, vote away! Polls close before Christmas - awards after!

Best Community Engagement

  • The Paid team (who have brought us Trends and an ever increasing number of connected accounts - and don’t seem to be done yet).
  • The Community team (that’s @AlanDoe and friends who keep this place spick and span and like a well oiled machine!)
  • The US team for building a US product in partnership with customers :mechanical_arm: :monzo_usa:

Best Mond/zo Logo!

Phew! That’s it!

I’ve almost certainly forgotten something, so tell me what that is below :point_down:

I’m hoping to close the polls just before Christmas, but it might go to just after…

Merry Christmas and Pleasant Polling! :christmas_tree: :santa:

*unless Monzo wants to donate plushies, we’re playing for pride :joy:


Some of the polls show results immediately (preferred) and some only show results when closed. Standards are slipping :wink:


I purposefully changed this so that there would be suspense and we could do a big reveal when the polls close!

(I messed it up on the logos, so consider that a freebie :joy: )

Standard form (results after vote) will be back for the post Christmas Big Poll!


This has actually been a really nice exercise to do. It’s a good reminder of all the stuff that’s happened this year - it’s far too easy to forget about it all. And, it’s nice to give thanks for a change, rather than clamour for the Next Big Thing.

So let me take this moment to say thank you to everyone at Monzo. It’s been a cracking year. :hot_coral_heart:


Again, Monzo need to pay you :laughing:


Voted! Excellent nostalgic view at what went on. Thanks to everyone involved - Monzo-peeps, Community-peeps, it’s been a fantastic year to be honest. Just when I got the feeling it was going off the boil, boom, both engaging posts on the forum and amazing new features in the app.



Can I vote for option 5 - other :wink:



(Such an obvious option missed).


haha - all good - i promise not to have any bias in my answers :joy:


Okay, we’re gonna have to revote. A very credible contender has emerged.

@katvoira @Revels @ndrw @Sachaz @MalaiseForever @dannymidd @JIMMWX @dinosm @scottcullendesign, would you mind voting again?

Such a polling failure. :joy:


And @davidwalton @Mickyc82 @anotherbrummie @BristolMatt @simonb , would you also mind voting again?

(Max number of people I can tag in a message!)

And now I haven’t closed a bracket. That shall haunt me.


What was it I said about standards slipping? :smirk:



I did take the oppo to change a vote :wink:



Thanks for flagging to me that I’d missed the new Home Screen and mortgage view updates :grin:

Big shout out to @Peter_G for pulling this together :heart:

Currently fighting the lurgy and this has been a nice thing to come back to.

Look forward to seeing the results when they come in :eyes:


Get better soon, Alan!


I think we need a “what has been your favourite poll” poll.



When is this closing?
