Here’s a sneak peek at what our new Conscious Growth Club forums currently look like on the inside. This is the categories page. I modeled the categories after the ones we used for the old public forums since those worked very well. This should get us off to a good start. We can always tweak the categories as we go along.
I’m still working on setting things up inside, and it’s coming along very well. The more I use Discourse, the more I like it. It has a bit of a learning curve, especially on the admin side, but I love that it’s so rich, robust, and modern. Every day I’m discovering interesting new features and thinking about how our community could use them.
Today my goal is to learn how to use the groups feature, so members can create their own subgroups. A group is a private discussion area that a subset of members can use for even more focused sharing, like a mini-club within the larger club. I can envision members using groups to connect with accountability partners for similar goals and habits, to explore co-creative projects with interested members, or to discuss in-person meetups in certain regions. I’m sure there are plenty of other possibilities too.
So far 63 people have asked to be added to the Early Access notification list, so it looks like we’ll have a thriving community well before the official launch later this Spring.
