Thanks for the info, though to be fair, this is not what I’m asking for, I just generally meant that there was at least an impression that the founders cared. Seyi and Bankole only led the conversations in the beginning, and it snowballed from there, but since things have generally been reset in terms of activity (and you basically admitting most people left or went to do other things, even if temporarily), I don’t think it’s too much to ask for that reassurance or that rebuilding of goodwill.
Just my two cents: People can and could return when good topics and conversation returns, but for now, it’s up to the powers-that-be to light that match. One way this could be done is by carrying old fans along: Hey, here’s what we’ve been working on, and it will do this and this, what do you think, or if things are currently invite-only, invite those existing members, whose trust has been earned in the past first looks/tries at these things and let them, if said things are good, spread the word. Like I said in the Community Update, for now, the invitations feel worthless because it doesn’t feel like anything’s going on here anyway.
Speaking of exclusivity, one thing TC used to do that I was never a fan of, was advertise these exclusive events where you’d invite some people from the community you felt were worthy and all we got afterwards were a few pictures, no idea what was discussed or done beyond back-slapping. Instead of that, invite such people to engage with the community here. That interesting thread on Twitter about some local tech scene issue, bring it over here. The old Radar threads are fine for having an idea of how things looked when Radar worked, but they’re mostly just old.
I like what you have in your sheet, it’s the most concrete evidence of a plan for Radar BCM has offered so far, and honestly, it’s what I mostly wanted to know. I actually wrote the stuff above before I read it. Thanks all for your time.
