There's more than 1 way to help a site succeed, but simply put we have to be very careful of how we manage it. 1. Be Patient I'm sure you're thinking of many questions, but don't post all of them on day 1, that leaves no other questions for other people to ask, then the rate of questions asked will drop and the site will become inactive. Try and space out ...

I don't think this will help. The attention we get from the HNQ list is a symptom of a larger issue and I think that shutting it off would only make the underlying issues less apparent. Are the HNQ posts problems? These questions drive traffic to the site which makes more users aware that we exist and makes us more likely to find new active users. They also ...

I think it would have been preferable for you to address the community about this before creating these accounts. Deciding how to name them, who should be in control of them, how they should be managed... all of that is something we all need to be involved in. I appreciate your enthusiasm but I don't think this is the right way to go about it. As Rand al'...

I think that one of the biggest challenges will be people asking questions that are too vague. Unfortunately, social situations/problems are often very vague, but if we want to maintain a higher quality than other sites we will have to find a way of making sure that people ask more specific questions so that they are actually answerable.

I took a try at this as well, but keep in mind my work was inspired by A J's initial designs. I tried to go for some complimentary colors, just enough text and I personally think the ad could really use a call to action button as it triggers people more to click. I prefer the second picture, but maybe without the background. I quite like the white ...

We can go for something like this. The background includes people communicating directly and online. It has a nice quote. Though, this quote can be changed.

We set up a Twitter account for Literature.SE, also. Here's a little advice from what I learned there. Let everyone weigh in on the account If you want it to be for the site, you should have the site with you on this. Over at Lit, first we discussed the matter in chat and then the account was created. It's not usually good to make a unilateral decision. ...

We had a lot of great answers this year and it was hard to choose. But after debating it with myself, I am choosing to highlight this answer by "IMightBeAmelia". It's an answer to the question: "How can I tell my date that one of her close friends outed her to me as trans?"

I posted a question on the behalf of a relative and was struck by the quality of AsheraH's answer to the question "How to gain group respect in a workplace setting?". The answer was quite throughout from giving new perspective to detailing strategies to answer the problem.

Who has control of these accounts? This could potentially be an important issue. If you're the only person running the site's unofficial social media pages, what happens if at some point you have less time for the site? I realise this site doesn't have mods yet, but when pro-tem mods are appointed, I suggest that they at least be added as administrators of ...

Lets Use The Interpersonal Skills We Want to Cultivate This site is about interpersonal skills. Let's use them! This means asking follow-up questions in comment threads, provoking thoughtful discussion or reconsideration, and answering with advice that can be realistically applied. Some of the questions here will come from people who may not have fantastic ...
