  2. Community sharing is community caring. Take it from me: prominently curating your members’ content will profoundly accelerate growth. It’s also pretty darn fun. I’ve run my company, BreatheHeavy, since 2004. While many online businesses shuttered because of social media’s looming presence, mine thrived because of the community. Full disclosure? I had no idea creating a community back in 2004 would become the not-so-secret ingredient to staying alive. Ahh, if only I knew then what I know now. Hindsight is 20/20 (that number gives me anxiety, am I right?), but I never fully understood or appreciated how immensely game-changing community building is. Related: The Importance of Moderation, err... Community Guidance (New Video!) In the past, I focused my efforts on writing news articles (in Wordpress) while my Invision Community community ran rampant. I felt my presence needed to take center stage. That cast a shadow on my community and thus my members. I unintentionally muted their voices by exclusively promoting mine. That was a colossal mistake, but the greatest learning lesson. One year ago, I decided to pivot and shift all my energy towards fostering my community; the results were astounding! I saw more than a 100% increase in unique visits compared to the previous year. The most powerful change I made was shining a light on the content my members created. My website went from being a news site to a community. I constructed a new homepage that featured topics created by myself AND my members. This not only manifested a dynamic, constantly varied homepage, but also incentivized members to post thought-provoking and engaging topics in the hopes their content gets featured. In my community, topics that are featured on the homepage are considerably more viewed and commented on than topics that aren’t. I suspect you’d find similar results. Here’s how I set up my new homepage: I utilized Invision Community’s custom blocks feature. It’s available with the Pages application. I created a new block plugin, selected “topic feed” from the list, then set the permissions in the Feed Configuration tab to only show “featured” topics from members. I also used @opentype's SuperTopics plugin to give a more-polished look. Might sound a bit complex, but it’s rather intuitive. Community leaders can “feature” members’ content by selecting their topic and in the moderation panel, tap “Feature.” Our Picks “Featuring” content isn’t the only powerful tool Invision Community has baked into its software to highlight your members’ content. We’ve also carefully crafted a promotion option to manually select content that’s included on the “Our Picks” page and corresponding block. This is another powerful method to curate community content. We created a guide on how to set up promotion/our picks. With great power comes great responsibility The ability to “feature” content is a privilege only moderators in your community should have access to – at least in the beginning. Avoid giving any member the ability to freely feature their own content onto the homepage - instead, focus on manually curating the content. Be selective and choose what topics you want to represent your community. By creating a standard, your homepage won’t feature any and all content. Instead, it’ll display items you believe will pack the greatest punch. Featuring your members' content visibly shows your desire to embrace your community. It’s one thing to comment on members’ topics, it’s another to feature and promote them for all to see. That’s the secret sauce of curation. Do you agree? Disagree? Have any suggestions? Curate content in your own community? How many questions can I ask in a row? Drop us a line in the comments below!
  3. Remember that 75-year-old Asian grandma from San Francisco who fought back against her attacker with a stick after he punched her in the face? Well, her family had set up a GoFundMe to deal with her medical expenses and she has now pledged to donate the full amount raised to help the Asian-American community fight racism. © GoFundMe In an update on the GoFundMe page, her grandson, John Chen, said: “She said we must not submit to racism and we must fight to the death if necessary. She also stated multiple times to donate all the funds generated in this GoFundMe back to the Asian American community to combat racism. She insists on making this decision saying this issue is bigger than Her. This is my grandma, grandpa, and our family’s decision. We hope everyone can understand our decision.” Once the news hit Twitter, it was apparent her inspiring actions had greatly moved people. Remember this woman’s name: Xiao Zhen Xie She was violently attacked on the streets of her SF community for being Asian and fought off her attacker, then decided to donate the $800,000+ raised for her medical bills back to the AAPI community. #womenshistorymonth #StopAAPIHate — Jodi Hicks (@jodihicks) March 23, 2021 Xiao Zhan Xie is donating all of her GoFundMe funds to support the AAPI community. Like many other Asian elders, she continues to be selfless & care for others despite her trauma. We can't let her be invisible! We must celebrate her goodness & strength. https://t.co/ElldoQQe5y — still wearing a mask (@candicevu) March 24, 2021Can we do more to ensure that she shouldn’t have to go through all that for us to find out how great she is? https://t.co/hiMaCfgyh0 — Paul Nadeau (@PaulJNadeau) March 24, 2021Currently, the donations stand at $933,595 (approx. Rs 6.7 crores), an amount that is still increasing every few minutes. And according to the family’s wishes, all of it will go towards the betterment of Asian communities. Chen also updated Xiao Zhen Xie’s physical and mental condition to the well-wishers, saying, “Her overall mental and physical health has improved. Her eye is no longer swelled to the point of not being able to open it. She is now starting to feel optimistic again and is in better spirits.” View the full article

  6. Moderation feels a bit like an outdated term created pre-social media, but it stuck. We’d like to re-frame your thinking in terms of guiding your community versus moderating it. Guidance is an essential component to any thriving community because it creates structure and boundaries for the community. Oftentimes, people think community guidance is about restriction, but in reality it allows your community to express itself in a healthy way. All communities run into issues unless there are clear guidelines laid out for all members. It only takes a couple of toxic trolls to bring down an entire community of thousands of members. As a community leader, it's important to find the balance between allowing freedom of speech and restricting what people can and can't say. An Internet troll tends to want to see what they can get away with and push the boundaries to the brink. They’ll claim that they are not allowed to speak their mind, but I want to stress the importance this: Freedom of speech has some limitations. For instance, you can't just shout ‘FIRE!’ in a crowded room because you believe you have the right to freedom of speech (though some would argue you can, which is why guidance is imperative). There are certain rules that everyone needs to follow in order for an online community to function. The first thing you'll want to do when guiding your community is... to create community guidelines. These guidelines must be visible and easy to access. There, you can lay out all the nitty-gritty rules you want, but essentially it should boil down to this: Be kind. Treat people with respect when posting and remember that there’s a person behind the user name. It's important not to hide behind anonymity just because you can. Being a part of the community means that all members must abide by these guidelines. Now what happens if someone "breaks the rules” or ignores these guidelines? As your community’s leader how do you proceed? You do so by creating actionable rules that can adversely affect a member’s standing in your community if they break them. I know that sounds kind of threatening, but it's important to establish to your community that you're there for them and that your priority is to hear them out, but at the same time you must take action to keep the peace. Invision Community has automatic moderation tools and a warning system section baked into the software. Below is a snapshot of Invision Community's administration panel where community leaders may set up custom automatic moderation rules: Tap here for more specific information on how to implement community guidance/moderation to your community. One important component to these rules is that you enforce them across-the-board to all members and do so consistently. If you leave the door open for one member and not another, it's going to create an unwanted hierarchy and instigate chaos. One of the best ways to be consistent is by walking the walk. Show your community how you want them to post by posting and contributing that way yourself. What that does is it sets a visible precedent. From there, you'll begin to notice other community members contributing in a way that is similar to you (lead by example). This is a great opportunity to consider them to join a new moderators team. Whether they are paid moderators or are volunteering their time, you still want them to be mini leaders inside your community. It's important that you are a positive role model for them. Watch the video up top, then drop us a line in the comments! And hey, while I've got you... check out what our own community has to say about moderation (aka community guidance 😉). Remember, guiding your community starts from the top (a.k.a. you!). Now get out there and moder-... guide! Stay tuned for more Invision Community video content coming soon!
  7. Harness the force as a community leader. A long time ago in the Interwebs far, far away... I proudly signed off all my posts and emails with the title: Owner, Administrator. Anyone in a 10-mile digital radius from me was made well aware: I AM AN OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR. I AM IMPORTANT I PROMISE. I OWN AND ADMINISTRATE!!! Granted I held off on the all-caps, but still. My assertion permeated throughout all areas of my online presence. Though well-intentioned, my identity as an administrator pushed me away from the community I fostered. I focused more on growing the group rather than being part of the group, thus creating an unspoken hierarchy that placed my members below me. Recognizing your members are living, breathing, sentient people is one of the most important aspects of community building, but I couldn’t see the forest from the trees. Part of me enjoyed the authority and power attached to my role as the website’s administrator. But with that power came isolating separation – the dark side if you will. A community I unknowingly built was unrelatable to me because I was unrelatable to them. Is it possible to remove “me” and “them” from the equation entirely and replace it with an “us?” Our community members aren’t naive to the fact that someone does technically own the community, and that part of your role as a community leader is administrating. It’s less about the title and more of the mindset. How can you connect with your community? By being relatable and approachable. Better yet? Leading by example. Become a community leader Shifting your interpersonal narrative from administrator to community leader can profoundly change your community’s culture for the better. As a community leader, you’ll inevitably perform administrative tasks, including the nitty gritty like group promotions, moderating and reputation (all critical functions for a high-functioning community). However, it’s possible to execute said functions while cloaked under anonymity that the administrator title can provide (that’s not necessarily good or bad, it just is). An important component to community leading is visibility. For many years, I made sure my Invision Community software was up-to-date, licenses paid, the registration system worked, spam defense was light-saber slicing the plastic-surgery-gambling bots to Tatooine. I was a fantastic administrator, but my presence from my community, the very place I worked tirelessly to keep running, was sorely missed. The moment I went “all-in,” meaning I decided to become an integral part of my community outside of the administrator role (by commenting on members’ topics, responding back in private message group chats, reacting to content, listening to feedback and opening up about real-life success and failures) is the moment I evolved into a community leader. I wanted to be seen. My deliberate change of self perception produced exponential growth in terms of traffic and new registrations. More importantly, I became a better community leader. I feel compelled to not only share pop music news with my community, but also what’s going on in my life. It wasn’t a comfortable transition, but a necessary one. Upon stripping away my title from administrator to community leader, I became a role model. I became someone my members came to for more than just technical forum advice. They wanted to see how I was doing. They wanted to share their wins and losses with me after seeing me succeed and fail in public. They saw me as a person; a leader. At the end of the day, community leading means forging connections, sharing your highs and lows and showing up for your members. That starts from within, which may feel incredibly awkward at first, but get comfortable with discomfort and watch you and your community blossom. Thoughts on transforming from administrator to Jedi community leader? Sound off in the comments! And may the +1 be with you.
  8. You’ve probably already noticed that something looks a little different in our community today. As part of our ongoing community improvements, we’ve performed some housekeeping to streamline the forum structure, make more distinction between areas and open up a few areas to guests and friends. The big visual change is that we now have four separate areas: support, community, marketplace and developers. It should hopefully be clear what each section does, but let's go through a few examples. Support This area is where you can leave feedback on existing features, help shape Invision Community’s future by suggesting new functionality and also where you can get quick support from fellow Invision Community owners and our team. Starting today, you can post in the Help & Support forum to get help from our team. If you’re unsure what a feature does, or think you’ve spotted an issue that needs our help, then you’re welcome to start a topic. Of course, if you want private support, then you are welcome to create a ticket in the client area as normal. Community Even the most seasoned community manager needs a little help from time to time. This section is the place to ask about strategy, to blow off steam in the lounge or to ask for fellow owners to help with support requirements outside of official support, such as configuring servers, databases and so on. Marketplace Our Marketplace brings hundreds of new features, themes, language translations and plug-ins to your Invision Community. If you need support or have a request for something you’ve purchased from the Marketplace, drop into the forums here. Developers Invision Community is blessed with a strong developer community extending the rich functionality of Invision Community. If you’re looking to develop an idea for Invision Community, these forums will let you connect with our development team to answer questions as well as get help from other marketplace authors. Other Changes There are a few other changes of note that I’d like to go through. Firstly, ‘Visitors’ (that is a registered member without an active license) are now ‘Friends’. Who doesn’t need new friends? Guests and Friends can now view the official support forums, but cannot post a new support request or reply to existing ones. We’ve merged ‘General Chat’ in with the Client Lounge to form ‘The Community Managers’ Lounge’. This is still a perk for active customers and the topics are not viewable unless you have an active license. Finally, we’ve gone through and spruced up some of the forum rules, descriptions and custom error messages. I hope these changes make it easier to find what you need and get a little help when you need it.

  13. Cyberpunk 2077 is right around the corner and it would be an understatement to say that the game is the most anticipated RPG of this decade. While the game is all set to launch on PC, PlayStation and Xbox consoles, it has been met with much hype around the world including India. We haven’t seen so much interest from the Indian gaming community ever since GTA V and it seems like many gamers have gone the extra mile in preparation for the launch of the game. We reached out to some interesting individuals who have been excited about the game’s launch and how they have been preparing themselves for the launch of the game. We came across individuals who have taken 20 days off from work to play the game while some have built themselves powerful PCs to experience the game. Here’s how the Indian gaming community has been prepping themselves for one of the most anticipated games of all time: Koushik Godbole - Mumbai/Bangalore © FacebookKoushik Godbole “My introduction to Cyberpunk 2077 was not when it was announced but during E3 2015. I finished watching Sony's conference and came across the teaser for the game among the recommended section. I watched the video and grew curious to learn more about the developers and the game. The hype surrounding the game was surely there at the time but was not loud enough. It all changed after the 2018's E3. What began as CDPR hacking the Microsoft conference, ended with a new beginning for something that had merely been in people's mind. To think that people like myself and many others across the world are upgrading their PCs and consoles in anticipation of this game, should be proof enough that CDPR has found the formula to create innovative and beautiful games. © Koushik Godbole There sure have been ups and downs along the journey for Cyberpunk 2077, but as Shigeru Miyamoto said "A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad”. I surely have not been this excited for a game in a long time and went as far as building a new PC and taking a few days off work.” Cosplayers © Sazzorx Creations I came across a pair of Cosplayer artists who recreated costumes of V and Johnny Silverhand based on trailers and whatever we’ve seen so far. Here’s how the duo made costumes from using materials they found in their local markets and why they chose the two specific characters in their own words: V cosplay by Suvasish Das“The Character I'm cosplaying is V, from the upcoming game Cyberpunk 2077. V's Jacket is made out of PU leather, Stickers and logos that were hand-drawn by me using acrylic paint. I bought an olive greenish-brown PU leather sheet from the market and stitched it with my sewing machine. The hardest part was making the collar as there are colour changing LEDs inside the collar. What we made can also be controlled by remote control. There's a sensor and power supply unit back of the jacket which powers the LED collar. You can change to any colour you want by the press of a button on the remote. The Militech handgun is made of EVA foam and chrome and black painted with acrylic. © Instagram_sazzorx The science fiction genre has been always a part of me. So when Cyberpunk 2077 was announced I couldn't help myself. I wanted to cosplay V as I was in love with the jacket design. All the prosthetics, implants, the mantis blade looked so dope. Cyberpunk 2077 will finally let us experience the futuristic dream we always wanted to be part of, I also wanted to write a cyberpunk story which will be based on futuristic India, hopefully, I will complete my story next year.” - Suvasish Das Jhonny Silverhand by Shaurya Shaw“The Character I'm playing is Johnny Silverhand from the upcoming game Cyberpunk 2077. The costume making Process was pretty simple because it only consists of a Vest which in itself is bit complex. I made the base out of foam, added Armour pieces and then covered the whole thing with Black faux leather. The Samurai logo was also hand-painted by me using acrylic colours. As for Johnny Silverhand (literally), I made layers of thin foam and then spray painted on top of it. After that, I added many details like wiring and cables to make it look closest to the in-game model. © instagram_lanius_xc I've always been a fan of the Cyberpunk Genre and watch every show related to the genre like Altered Carbon, Blade Runner or Animes like Alita and Ghost in the shell. And there's something in that genre that exaggerates everything from today's technology such as body modifications and shareable consciousness. These features always excite me. As for Johnny Silverhand, he has become my favourite character simply because I'm a huge fan of Keanu Reeves. Johnny is a legend in the 'Night City' who has a shady love story and also has a mixed sense of morality where one doesn't know if he is a good or a bad guy. He's also a bit crazy, who is a full-on Rockstar mixed with his military past and he will also the main guide of V throughout the game” - Shaurya Shaw Anand Chhibba - New Delhi © Reddit-u_Yeettdydu "I have been looking forward to the Cyberpunk 2077 release this December ever since it was first announced in 2013 as I am a huge fan of RPG games more so of those RPGs that have an insane level of details in their open-world environments. We've had our fair share of open-world games that feel like lived-in environments such as medieval-themed games like Skyrim, Witcher, Dragon Age etc but nothing really major in the modern era. However, there are no games where we have worlds such as the ones depicted in cult classics like the Matrix, Blade Runner, and Robocop. As I grew up watching these movies and seeing technology grow around me, I was sold on the idea of a game where everything in the world will be neon-filled like the world of 'Blade Runner' with full-body augmentations and a world where everyone is a tech-junkie. Cyberpunk 2077 being a CDPR title, we all know how good they are at creating lived-in open worlds (Witcher 3 being the greatest example of this generation); I'm excited to explore the Night City for that very reason. Since this last generation we didn't have our fair share of such lived-in open worlds; ending this generation/starting this generation with such a game would be a great treat for all gamers. I am ready for cyberpunk 2077 and will be diving into the game uninterrupted for 15 days as I have taken off from office work and I am ready to take on the role of V as a street kid in the night city.” Kulein Ethiraj - Bangalore“The first time I’ve heard about the game was from the first gameplay trailer showing the female 'V'. I saw the gameplay and wasn’t impressed with the gameplay as it felt like a generic shooter. I wasn’t much interested in Cyberpunk 2077 until they released a newer trailer. This one got me interested! I started researching more on Cyberpunk 2077 came to know that it’s from the developers behind the Witcher series!. It got me more excited for the game however there was one thing worried me a lot. This was about my current laptop which is on its outdated state. It runs current-gen games at 25 FPS on low settings (Specs :- GTX 860m , intel core i7 4th gen, 8GB RAM) and it made me worried about how the game would run. © Kulein Ethiraj Then CD Projekt showed the trailer having Johnny Silverback played by Keanu Reeves. I was excited and decided to upgrade my laptop to a new one. That’s when Covid 19 ruined my chances. Laptop sales hiked up like crazy and were being sold at insane prices for minimal specifications. I waited till August until I lost my mind and then just decided to get my new laptop (Leigon 5i). It wasn’t the top-tier specifications laptop but it did it got the job done. The jump from 25 to 60 FPS feels so satisfying. Then CD Projekt Red released these night wire episodes which showed incredible reflections. I was so damn excited to get it now also at that time the game was set to release in September. I quickly went to 'Games The Shop' to place my preorder. The best part was a physical copy gives you free physical goodies and an official T-shirt! I always wanted to own official merchandise from games! I immediately hit the preorder button and I am currently waiting for December 10th to finally play as a nomad netrunner in night city!” Cyberpunk 2077 is all set to launch on December 10 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. You can head on over to our dedicated Cyberpunk 2077 site which features every information about the game including features, news, guides and other useful information. The game is currently available for pre-order on Games The Shop and also comes with a free official Cyberpunk 2077 t-shirt. View the full article

  17. Though Akshay Kumar’s Laxmii received mixed responses, people found a hidden gem in the form of the very talented Sharad Kelkar. It won’t be wrong to say that he was the soul of the movie as he managed to capture many hearts with just a 15-minute cameo role. He proved that the length of the role never matters when you have a powerful character to play and are completely dedicated to it. View this post on InstagramPeople who noticed Sharad's performance, bombarded him with messages. In an interview with Indian Express, he shared, “To be very honest, it does feel great, but I don’t agree with it. I think it’s all about people’s perspectives. I can’t judge myself, and also I know that everyone has put in a lot of effort. A lot of people called out of the blue. It was unexpected and they showered me with compliments. I am really thankful to all of them.” Interestingly, thanks to Laxmii, he got to experience their lives first-hand and also agrees that a transgender person might have played the part better. “I absolutely agree that they could have done it, and maybe done better than me. It was the director’s call, and given the part was a little critical, he might have chosen to go with an actor with experience. They did get a transgender person to play Geeta’s part, and there were others too around,” added Sharad. View this post on Instagram Here are the lessons that Sharad Kalkar learnt while filming for the part: 1. He spoke about how families have been conditioned to think a certain way about transgenders as people who are loud, and ask for money, and hence everyone is scared of them. He said, “As you grow up and evolve, you understand the reality. Hence, I have always been welcoming towards them and even spoke to them at signals. I have never shooed them away. However, after this film, of course, I have realized the level of pain they go through, physically and mentally.” 2. He has also realized while researching for the movie, how, even historically, they have been portrayed as far more powerful than men and women. “I was doing my research, and even in mythologies, it has been said that they have the power of both man and woman, and that is why they are far more superior,” added Sharad. View this post on Instagram 3. He also felt that people have pushed them away because they are insecure about their strength. “From my understanding, I have come to a conclusion that given their strength, people because of their insecurities must have pushed them to the corner. They must have felt that they would conquer them. And given they had no place, they had to be loud to be heard. I am thankful that times are changing, and now the society and even the government is making efforts to get them accepted in society,” said Sharad. We truly agree with Sharad on all the points he has stated as it’s high time the discrimination against the transgender community stopped. They too deserve the same love and respect. With people like Sharad bringing such issues to the fore, we hope things change for good. View the full article
