@richard_millington thank you so much for these.
thank you a lot! I will definitely use your recommendations. if you would have some updates, please don’t forget to come back. it is always interesting reading it all!
Ok, made a few updates to this. Thanks everyone!
I don’t want it to become a sprawling resource, but just something that would help someone just starting out in community management. Very open to more suggestions here. What resources would help?
Fantastic resource. I’ve got nothing to add but I did want to say how much I appreciate this.
