Community guidelines don't change the behavior of your members for one simple reason: your members don't read them. This presents a challenge. If you want to shape the behavior of members in the community, how do you do it? How do you influence members to do positive things in your community? How can you prevent them from doing bad things? Too often, we begin writing rules with a pre-determined idea of what the behavior in the community should be. Instead, we should look to see what behavior members want in a community and where that behavior is conducive to a successful community. Join us August 15th to learn how to steer your community to the behavior you want.

Thursday, August 15 at 9am PDT

  • Ways to use creative and engaging solutions to shape behavior
