« The Secret To Competing With Established Online Communities | Main | Efficacy - A Missing Element To Keep Community Members Hooked »



So true

I have a social network with a heavily used chat component, and nothing works to unite the members like when a hacker/trouble maker gets in the chat and starts peeing in the punchbowl.

At first it was just a nuisance, but as we developed our community response to these incidents, it was amazing to see people working together against a common enemy. We now have a "high security" mode where only trusted, verified members can get in, and we have a name for it and everything. Its sort of a right of passage to "cam up and get verified as real."

People talk about it like we're a hardened band of Viking warriors or something. Pass the mead!

Being able to create shared experiences is the most important aspect of building a solid community IMO.
