I’m interested in your opinion on the structure of welcome or introduction topics.
IMO they tend to fill a community up with a lot of low-quality noise, unless there is a really carefully communicated framework – and even then…
We need some kind of CTA in the onboarding emails, and I think there is value to be had in offering people a relatively low barrier to entry on their first post. I tried to find some middle ground with our So, what are you working on? topic, but I’ve just had some really interesting feedback from @rcpavlicek who found its monolithic nature (45 mins reading time) off-putting.
It hadn’t occurred to me that people would think they needed to read it before taking part, so I’ve learned something.
How do you approach this in your communities?
