Manage episode 236993479 series 2291014
This week kicks off with a discussion about San Francisco's iconoclastic - but also incorrect - name for a specific coffee drink. Amos is, as they say, coming in hot and launches full bore into a discussion about the elixir forum’s moderation policies. Chris is primarily concerned about the angry letters they’re going to receive.
The hosts discuss the benefits of moderating a community. They all agree that moderation is a good thing and helps a community stay healthy, but they also agree that silently editing people's posts is like, kinda creepy.
Anna brings up the topic of “forever projects” and how draining they can be. She asks the guys if they have any solutions for scaling projects that don't have a defined "end". The hosts discuss burnout, the pain of invisible work, and how people can help create a more vibrant and rich community.
