As a community grows, the rate of growth naturally slows (no. new members / no. total members (or DUAs)).
You might get lucky in a fast-growing industry (data science etc…), but otherwise, you will at some point hit saturation*.
If you’ve set expectations (and constantly reported) on rapidly rising engagement metrics all this time, what will you do when you naturally go past the peak?
