  5. https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/story/2020-04-18/anthony-fauci-sexiest-man-alive There's this specific paragraph that I think is especially relevant to modern communities: In your community, how do you differentiate between discussion of regular people versus authoritative advice? How do you tone down 'armchair experts' and elevate real experts?

  7. One and only Indian Christian Forum dedicated for the people of India.
  8. How do you all feel about registering communities as a legal business? In my country, an LLC or similar would be the most likely registration form. Limited Liability Company - which can help protect your personal assets in the event that someone wants to sue your forum for whatever reason. Do you think it is necessary? Why or why not?
  9. I recently got the flu. I haven't had the flu in a long time and although I'm physically fit and active and pretty healthy, it has taken a toll on me. I pretty much went dark on all my ventures including my main Brand which usually gets my attention throughout most of the day. But the flu like I said, really has done me in. I'm recovering now, thankfully and it isn't as serious as COVID-19 or anything like that but it still disabled me for a good 72 hours. A 72 hour absence can hurt a community. So how do you deal with a crisis that could create absence...
  10. An engagement practice for members to visibly share their work online in your community. It offers opportunities for both members and superusers to openly share their knowledge, purposeful discovery, and growth for others. It's usually the entire point of communities of practice, for members who all share the same profession or craft. Discussion Questions What kinds of spaces do you offer for your members to 'work out loud'? (eg. blogs, showcases, or something customized?) How do you promote, feature, or affirm the best ones into teachable moments for others?

  12. Intrinsic motivation is motivation that comes from internal motivation, rather than external rewards. Understanding - and enforcing - intrinsic motivation is key for forum administrators and community managers because it helps uncover the underlying reasons for why people return, participate, and become involved. Although members can be motivated by external rewards (like badges, money, or promotion), it's usually the intrinsic motivation that drives the behavior. Members feel greater satisfaction in their achievements. The more you can align your member journey to intrinsic motivation, the more you can unlock the human potential of your members. Here are some factors in intrinsic motivation: Curiosity: to explore and learn for pleasure and enjoyment...

  14. Whether you plan to make money or not, do you feel like you should treat your forum like a business? Do you plan for it like a business? Develop a business plan? Treating your forum like a business may allow you to make the best decisions to keep it active.
  15. Yes a great job by Joel, good to see the efforts put in the forum.
  16. I started with MyBB and i am using MyBB for my current project. I bought few software licenses and i sold it and i am back to MyBB. The development and involvement of MyBB has gone down and many skip free forum software over paid software and it will surely bring death to few of the free forum software.
  17. Touchpoints are any ways that a visitor or member interacts with your community, whether it be through the forums, mobile app, physical (like a conference), or any other form of communication. Some touchpoints are obvious and through the forum or online community itself: forum discussions, articles, resources, and comments. You may also intentionally position some touchpoints front-and-center, like products or subscriptions. But many touchpoints can be overlooked, and they're often the one and only interaction some members or visitors will ever have with you: Contact Form Newsletter Personal Messages Direct emails Discussion Questions: What are all of the different touchpoints on your forum or online community? Divide between digital and...

  19. I started with SMF so I will always have a deep affinity and respect for that community. They were great, but the reason why I eventually "went premium" is precisely what you you said -- it took them forever to update. I know they're a volunteer community but the interest and passion is no longer there. This tracks with the broader forum market: it's going up the value chain to premium and enterprise platforms. Why start a new SMF forum with all the hassles and problems of hosting when you can open a new Discord channel or Facebook group? They've been cannibalized by social media platforms.

  21. What I mean by this is http and not https. SSL encryption. When I register a new domain, I automatically add SSL to it using Let's Encrypt as it has proved to be a quite handy took these days. How do you all feel about it? Do you think forums can only be trusted by the masses if security certificates are enabled?
  22. I've been watching some of the popular free forum software platforms that I used to frequently use. PhpBB... MyBB... Simple Machines... It seems like most of them are dormant with update activity, not even bug fixes. That always troubles me because most software regularly requires updates. There are always vulnerabilities and bugs to be found. The free software out there can't be that secure and error-less...can they? What are your thoughts on this?
  23. As mentioned elsewhere, the age of social media has put message forum management in jeopardy. Because of how harder it is to run a successful message forum in the social world, integrating psychology into forum management might be the way to the winning ticket. Look at sales, ads and business marketing - the marketer will speak a certain way to the target customer in hopes to sway that customer into purchasing the product or service being marketed. Do you feel the same approach should be taken with forums? We admins (the marketer) should be speaking in sense a certain way to the members (the consumers/customers) to sway them to stick...
  24. There's a lot of angst over the future of forums, but there will always be an enduring power of discussions, sharing, and learning among a group with similar interests. A lot of forums in the social, general, and lifestyle niches have slowly declined. What's your community strategy to grow? Are you building a content hub with best-in-class resources, tutorials, and knowledge base? Are you a brand or organization with an existing audience that you seek to serve?
  25. I think it looks better now very easy to use.😉
  26. Love the look and feel of the site Joel nice job 😉
