What should happen with inactive communities?
The level of activity of the communities vary. Some are more active than others, which isn't exactly a problem. However, I'm a bit worried when a community becomes significantly less active than others and there is little original content being created by the group proposing it1.
This can mean different things, for example:
- the suggestors don't have any questions right now
- the suggestors don't have much time right now
- the suggestors aren't active (anymore)
What should be done in these cases? Should we just wait and let the site open? Should we train some monkeys to write questions? Should we "freeze" the site and provide the contents for download? Should we close it down?
What do you think?
