This is more of a meta-discussion, I suppose. But I’ve been dipping in and out of this forum for the past few weeks to read threads. One thing I keep wondering is whether it’s okay to start discussions here about things I may have written in other venues.
I’m a community manager on the Apache CouchDB project, and I also help out with some other Apache top-level projects, and mentor for the Incubator too. (Nice to see Shane here!)
I regularly share my thoughts with the mailing list and sometimes I write blog posts too. Here’s one I just posted (prompting me to start this thread):
I’m wondering if it’s appropriate to link to things like this. I know some places have strict rules on self-promotion so as to keep out the spammers. But really, I don’t know many other community managers, and so I don’t often get to have conversations about this stuff. It’s frustrating that Reddit doesn’t have an active community manager subreddit. In fact, that’s how I found this place!
