We are working to create a strong community on StackExchange. After having read the Area 51 FAQs we are searching for some practical direction from other community founders.

What are some of the things that we should be doing now, in the Definition Phase, to lay a good foundation for our community to succeed through the next phases?

What are some of the things you have found that helped your communities grow in strength?

What are some of the things we should avoid?

Our Proposal: OrchardCore: Open-source, modular, multi-tenant application framework and CMS for ASP.NET Core


Something we have discovered is that it is important for each person to use their votes for up-votes and not for down-votes.

Since each person only has 5 votes and the community needs 40 questions with a score of 10 or higher to move to the next phase, voting for questions a person feels defines the community helps more than voting against questions that they feel don't define the community.

  • If you want to change your vote on a question, the "orange arrows" indicate questions you have voted for. Click on the orange up or down arrow and it will change back to grey. This cancels that vote and gives it back to you. Then you can use it to vote on another question. – Hank 2 days ago
