I'd like to announce my intention to create a Connect room for Forem admins/creators/community managers to join and discuss anything & everything Forem community management.
It'll serve as a chat channel to discuss things like:
- how to recruit and keep mods engaged
- how to handle edge-case issues with admin tooling (for instance, how to merge 2 accounts that both have Twitter OAuths)
...and collect helpful feedback like:
- we decided to change our Code of Conduct to make it more clear to folks that they can't use inappropriate language in their usernames
- we keep running into problems with banned users rejoining
These are just a handful of examples of the discussions that may happen. It seems like it would be helpful to have a place where community managers can discuss issues they're running into and techniques they've found to be helpful. And of course, feedback and ideas for improvement would be encouraged.
