Seeking Ideas for Community Outreach Survey
Still in the early stages of building our community and building engagement. We have a small community already signed up for our Forums and I'm looking to gain more information on what brings them to our Forum.

Managing Job Boards in your community
How are others managing job boards in their community? I have a category for open roles with our clients. However, I'd like to clean it up on a quarterly basis so folks don't miss the post date and try to apply to something outdated. Curious how others handle this, delete them?

How do you "Marie Kondo" your community?
Spring is a little ways off (especially here in Montana!), but I'm planning ahead for some spring cleaning and the one-year anniversary of the community I'm currently managing. What "clean-up" tips do you have? Are there processes around them? Examples: Delete users that have been inactive for X amount of time every…
