Growth and Sustainability

Creating an ongoing and thriving community is a difficult task. The greatest obstacles are attracting people to your community and then getting them to participate. When first starting out, you will probably have to nurture and lead some discussions to get things going.

Ideally, you want your community to exhibit a positive network effect, where newcomers will join your community because there are already a lot of community members, all without much effort on your part. Most communities have a critical mass—that is, a minimum number of participating community members for the community to become self-sustaining, as already described.
