Submit your community for a weekly breakdown

breakdown

(Richard Millington) #1

Something I’d love to try and start is a weekly breakdown of a member’s online community.

The goal is pretty simple. Someone posts their community in this discussion thread. Then our members, our team, and I will share ideas of what we like, what we don’t like, and how we would go about improving it.

This will probably mean joining it and going through the onboarding process to the point of participation.

Hopefully you get a lot of useful tips and our members get to see the process of improving and optimising a community site - along with some copy tips.

If you want to be in the first group, submit a link to your community below.

I’ve kicked off the Nethserver review with my thoughts here.

Love this idea: https://forum.simscale.com/

I think this is a fabulous idea. Thanks for taking the time. I think our community is a bit new just yet for this to be really useful. Still very much in the strategy stage. But the comments of the community already reviewed are very helpful
If this opportunity is still available I will take part when we have more done.

Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

I’m slightly hesitant to offer up the Puttytribe for a community breakdown. That’s because there’s a lot that we know we can do better and we’ve actively working on some of those items (e.g., behind-the-scenes process improvement, a move from Ning to probably Discourse, and consolidating community-facing activities).

If anything, a breakdown would help position us better in the “land of no niche” and give us some great ideas that we could actually implement with a better backbone for our “puttypeeps” (a.k.a. our members).

Hawk and Rich, I appreciate the heck out of you doing these breakdowns. And I’d be grateful for a not-so-gentle breakdown of what we have going on at the Puttytribe.

This is an awesome idea. I’ve been away from Feverbee for a while (just too much going on at work), so I didn’t see the weekly breakdown. That’s really cool, and I’m going to have to keep an eye on them to learn more!

I’d love a breakdown of my community. I feel limited by the platform and am trying to think of ways to encourage more participation when users don’t have a great way to connect with each other (no @mention, no DM). That said, the focal point on the community is for support/self-service, so we don’t need to grow for the sake of growing.

Please consider breaking down RareConnect an online community for people living with rare, genetic diseases. We are planning a redesign later this year and having Feverbee’s input would help improve the lives of people affected by these conditions.

This is awesome everyone – thanks for putting your hands up. Looks like we’re going to be busy!


(Suzi Nelson) #14

Bummer! Ours is a private Facebook group that would require a bit of hoop-jumping to get people in :frowning: Wish I could do this!!


(Kath Reuben) #15

This has been an interesting read certainly something to think about. Unfortunately, I remain a voyeur as our Community is a private support community. Thanks everyone for sharing!


(Nick Donoghue) #16

ditto!


(Lena Ellis) #17

Opportunity for one more? Would love your insight on our Community- community.upwork.com

Thanks!


(James Campbell) #18

Hey guys, if there’s any spot for one more, I’d like to throw my Community into the ring!

We’re quite different to a lot of other communities, as we operate our game forums in various different languages, with Community Managers for each one. It’s also a locked community, so players have to register for the game in order to access our forums, meaning the environment is a bit different.

Just as a little insight; we’re a community for a free to play browser game, and the official communication platform for the players. It’s a community based around the product, rather than a topic.

Would be great to get some insight from you guys!

All the best,

James.
