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.
Here we are: http://community.dreamfactory.com
(I am in the process of editing some of the look and feel atm, so please excuse the construction zone!)
I’ve kicked off the Nethserver review with my thoughts here.
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!
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.
We would love for you to have a look at our community and let us know your thoughts! http://www.outsystems.com/community/
Feel free to reach out with any questions you might have
This is awesome everyone – thanks for putting your hands up. Looks like we’re going to be busy!
Bummer! Ours is a private Facebook group that would require a bit of hoop-jumping to get people in Wish I could do this!!
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!
Opportunity for one more? Would love your insight on our Community- community.upwork.com
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,
Hi @rebeccabraglio, I just took a peek and wanted to say that I really like the wording you use about your other social networks. “Socially accessible. We’re active on your social network.” So refreshing from the usual, connect with us or whatever.
I look forward to exploring your community more, but I have to get back to mine for the moment.
