@cammicam

Thanks so much for this list. I am going to retweet, and send to some of my coworkers. It's great to have a resource like this to clearly outline what I had in mind. Thank you!

Excellent list! I would also add a "fail to give the community a meaning"...

Many communities exist which are very broad and open, making it very difficult to attract members because they have no "hook".

Wonderful. Not making a big announcement is difficult when you have funders who want to be able to say to the public what they're spending their money on. But as my own project - Help Me Investigate - was announced before it was open, I'm hoping that will help. Also, the announcement was in the media press, whereas that's not who will be using it...

Thousands of communities thrive on simple, basic forums. Find the simplest tools available, then force yourself to justify any additions.

I like the last one, leave no one in charge. That's the basic motto for my and my community. Thanks for the reinforcement.

good blog

Don’t use the latest web tools because you want to. Thousands of communities thrive on simple, basic forums. Find the simplest tools available, then force yourself to justify any additions.

Very thought out list you have here, it just so happen I was about to open a forum for my Airsoft sniper rifle site and your post provide me with some good advice on starting off on the right foot!

Thanks,
