Was spelt wrong too.Seems that this should be given to a thread that wasn't stickied at some point during the month - since any thread that was stickied already got extra attention, and giving the Thread of the Month to a thread that was stickied kind of comes off selectist.
No offense meant.
Oh, also this!
We would probably evaluate that on a case by case basis. Feel free to contact me directly should the need arise.Thanks for keeping us up to date. I think the newsletter idea should be a nice change of pace and allow much more communication than the black box inner workings of the old site. Good job!
Also a question about the 20,000/Refresh policy. While it won't affect me since I likely won't be making any communities THAT popular. There are some communities where they naturally reset quarterly like the generic Seasonal Anime/TV communities. Would exemptions be allowed to stretch to those types of communities as well?
The reason I ask is because these kinds of communities have their OTs setup to be primarily informational using information that wont change unless there is an extreme circumstance (things get cancelled mid-season or airing times change, ect) and it wouldn't make sense to have them say be forced to create a new thread if they've only got say half a month to a month left before the new one is scheduled to go up
We have a limited e-mail quota. Sending emails to 33000+ members would impact our quota for things like password resets or new registrations.Lovely initiative! It's pretty good how you highlighted some interesting threads. I'd like to ask two things though.
Maybe it was just me being old fashioned, but when you talked about a Newsletter I genuinely thought of an e-mail sent to registered members. Have you considered that option? It could give even more exposure to some news.
Second, have you thought of adding some banners? Images with "News of the month" or "Spotlight" could make the thread more inviting as users probably stop reading after a certain amount of text. I'm no expert but I could help with that if you think it's a good idea.
Anyways, fantastic work! You're really engaging with the community to the point that I wonder if it's maybe too much work for just one Community Manager, but you make it look so easy!
I see, thanks for answering. Keep the good work!
