The HEADPHONE Community has been in Beta for a week now and it already looks like this is going to be a great journey together. (Can you believe it’s only been a week?)
MY THOUGHTS ON THE FIRST WEEK
So far, I’m impressed with the quality of discussion. We have an incredible group who are generously sharing their experience and we’ve seen a great mix of experts and beginners.
A positive sign is that newcomers are comfortable asking questions, and the questions are being met with thoughtful replies.
Something I’ve noticed in other communities is genuine questions being answered with “use the search function.” Or “it’s a 2-minute google search.” That’s not the best introduction to our passion or our community. It can also be hard for newcomers to find relevant information in a forum-type community where so much content is created. (We’re thinking a lot about curation and ways to make the most useful information more accessible).
@jaethan Is our first moderator and has been doing a great job helping everyone get comfortable in our new home.
The community is still invite-only until June 1st, but we’re so happy with this founding group that we’re opening invitations to current members.
If you’d like to invite someone, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the email addresses of the people you would like to invite. … Yes, we’ll have a much better way to invite friends in the future
If you have a chance, we’d love your thoughts on the following so we can keep getting better:
