Thank you for all your hard work! This seems like a reasonable place to ask: what are the current holdups for not being able to manage new circles? (i.e. lack of mods, lack of funds, something else?)

I see a lot of complaints about that on here, so I am wondering if there is anything individual users can do to help. I apologize if you've already mentioned this recently and I didn't see it!

Currently I'm covering the costs of the site myself it is really expensive. We're not expanding until we have fundraising, and we probably won't be expanding until we have the documentation on how to apply to start a circle, what we expect of moderators, documented procedures about removing moderators and transferring control of circles to others when they go inactive or for other reasons, etc – we may make a couple exceptions for new circles (after we start fundraising but before we have documentation) but we really can't expand much until we're prepared to deal with the consequences, and expanding necessarily means consequences and more work for the admin team.

We have this post for anyone who is interested in helping with software development.

If anyone has other skills to offer (experience running an org or business and have tips on managing taxes, money, legal stuff; want to help with software testing; want to donate art; anything else they might think of) they can send me a message.

Thank you for this reply! I will message you when I have a chance.
