The cyclic nature of community


(Sarah Hawk) #1

I often hear talk of quiet times during the US summer, which I suppose makes sense if people are outside more than usual, but I’ve never really had any concrete proof.

I’m finding this month to be very quiet. We’re down about 25% in our registration and engagement numbers, which is fairly standout.

Does anyone else notice cycles or slumps in their community? What do you do about it?

Silly season
Everyone fighting
Doldrums, boring
Buinsness as usual
Great content everywhere phase

These are my forum’s cycles
