Thoughts and writings on community management

Community Management and Moderation

This repository contains my thoughts, lessons, guidelines and learnings around community management and moderation.

Rules of Thumb

  • Not everything deserves a response
  • Of the things that do merit a response, virtually none of them need a response right now


General Communication


These docs are super helpful whether you're maintaining your own project on GitHub and looking for tips on how to best guide your community... or if you're just planning on joining an online community and want a better sense of how they're run.

Hope you enjoy Lee's writing as much as I have!
