Was this the first Sudo -Seattle event? Sorta! This past weekend, a meetup for admins of place-based neighborhood groups on Facebook took place in the space. We had about 10 participants in the potluck meet-up representing five neighborhoods around the Southeast Seattle. Our major accomplishment was simply meeting as a group, but in addition we identified some of the common motivations and issues we share in moderating online spaces for place-based community building. Most of the issues are captured in the image above.
Are you an admin of an online forum, group, or page for a neighborhood in Seattle? Are you looking for connecting and meeting with other admins/moderators? Send me a message and I’d be happy to let you know about our next meeting.
