I've seen a lot of people asking the same questions over and over again. Here are some of them:
- how to attract new users
- how to make users post
- how to promote a forum
- how to get rid of spam
- how to monetize a forum
- how to find and motivate moderators
This raises the question whether or not it would be good to create some type of guide that covers just the basics of ecommunity management. I realize that many people would still go to a forum and post the same question for the thousandth time but some of them would probably refer to the guide. Then this forum could deal with more specific questions and the guide would cover all the basic information.
I've seen something like this over at Webmasterworld but I think there is still room for a new guide.
