Before going live, Dana toyed with the idea of whether or not they would set moderator approval, where any discussion that gets posted has to be approved by an admin. With everything going on, Dana decided she didn’t have the time and she trusted her members but she admits that she has not had to do much or manage anything. “We haven’t had any problems in terms of people posting inappropriately. This may be because we are a small association and know each other. I am not surprised, my members are friendly and polite, I didn’t think there would be any problems. I just didn’t have the time and I thought let’s just see how it goes and it has been going great.”
Despite the little issues at the beginning, DSCPA members have taken to the community very quickly. Approximately 90 percent have interacted with the community in some way, whether it is just reading the emails or posting discussions.
