A simple point, but important! This concept is one reason I always tell people to start their forum-based communities, for example, with a small number of forums and then let the members and activity demand more when the time is right.

The Sixth Circuit has held that work being done “periodically,” as an “ordinary part of plant maintenance,” is regular or recurrent. Granus v. North American Philips Lighting Corp., 821 F.2d 1253, 1257 (6th Cir. 1987). In Daniels, a panel of this Court held that emissions testing was a regular or recurrent part of a contractor’s business on the basis of its manager’s affidavit stating that testing had occurred on fourteen occasions in 28 years. Daniels, 933 S.W.2d at 824.


As always, great post Rich, thanks. Monitoring social density is not spoken about much but it's vital it comes to managing growth. A Community Manager needs to decide when a particular area has reached critical mass and could sustain separation.

Figuring out that the activity is flowing too fast, members are missing out on opportunities to participate, and members can no longer follow a lot of the activity is an indication of this point.

As you & Rosemary point out however - always start with only a few areas of activity.
