Thanks Rich. This is valuable info.

I think a few of us have figured this out, but haven't had to use it too much.

Have you seen the case where too much activity causes inactivity?

"Nobody goes there anymore, it's too popular."


V interesting piece, especially when Fresh Networks tweeted this this week:

So what's going on? Are the CIM so wrong with what defines a successful community?
