I just joined, recently read the book “Buzzing Communities” and have read a few topics here, and have a ton more to read. Recently stepped into the role of running an online community around game development, basically filling a void from a community that went offline and well - never returned.
I am sure to have a ton of questions, as our current members are feeling a little betrayed over the loss of the previous community, happy to have the new community, but not yet feeling trusting as of yet. Everyday is a few friendly posts and patience in showing that we are a great place to participate.
I look forward to seeing what more I can learn in how to build trust and encourage engagement and participation.
