The WordPress Community, Now I’m Turning It Up To 11

Bob Dunn shares his perspective on the WordPress community and the reasons why people leave it. Exits, he points out, have always been happening: "The problem is that things change, or don’t change, and they get frustrated or downright angry... The smart ones know when to leave. Give up that piece of WordPress and move on."

I agree with Bob that no community is perfect, and from my experience organizing and maintaining a community with meetups and WordCamp Miami, I have learned that community can also mean different things to different people. For some, it is a very emotional connection, and for others, it is not. Some of the best things I’ve seen happen to people have only occurred when they joined other communities or explored new frontiers. Others find satisfaction by staying put.
