I’d like to know your opinion about a simple fact, over the last month around 180 members have logged in but only 77 are truly active, posting at least once. So just 1/3 of logged in members are used to post something.
My main goals are:
- I want new members to feel immediately welcome, comfortable, and prepared to post about what they are looking for or what they need help with.
- I want everyone to feel like they have something valuable (and brilliant) to offer, regardless of how long they have been around the project.
Is there anything in this community which makes some people nervous about posting? Some of you told me they feel the need to craft a brilliantly worded post and you just don’t have the time or motivation. Others don’t feel that they’ve been worked on NethServer for long enough to add anything new to the conversation. Others aren’t comfortable because of the language problem.
I love that the level of discussion here is high and I don’t want to change that, but I don’t want it to be something that feels exclusive to the wider community. If we don’t hear all of the voices, how do we know what we don’t know?
What do we have to change from your point of view? How can we enable new members to jump directly into the discussion? Many of you already did it, like @delphir @amjsoft @kisaacs @lvicentini @mark_nl @craaaft @Furuvio @Sebastian @StreetGuru @hany @firsttiger
What have help you to change your behaviour here? What can we change to help you to become more involved into the community/project? More docs? More training? Some demo virtual machine to play with?
Plus, I know that there many expert lurkers here like @apradoc @warren_midgley @transocean @Nexus @kg66 @T_C @ironsky they know pretty well our community (reading a lot of things!!) and I want to hear their voice!
Please I’d like to see as many people as possible involved in this discussion let me know about your experience here!
You would help me to make this community better for everyone!
