@swanbrooner That seems like a reasonable solution. I agree with you that the one-off posts will probably increase if we don’t have a systematic approach. I want to encourage people to post and ask questions (and offer support/advise), but if we have too many drive-by posts, the community regulars will get fatigued. Thanks for bringing this up!
Any thoughts/opinions on a weekly questions/help thread?It might be my Bump past, but I’d like to see it so there aren’t so many one-off “help me” threads being posted by people who probably aren’t invested in our group. I feel like as more are posted/being seen on the first thread page, it just invites more “strangers” to do the same thing, as it’s perceived as normal. If I’m the only one who is bothered by this, I’ll go with the flow, of course.
One thing to remember about pinning posts, it’s very difficult to get the admins to unpin something later. In my last bmb we tried for weeks because between the old ultrasounds, intros, and guidelines and all the Bump promotional posts (most of which were closed our years old) you had to scroll in order to even see the first thread on mobile. We ended up starting a secret bump group just so we could actually control the pinned posts (which isn’t a bad way to go, BTW). Just something to consider.
