I think the hands-on touch is really important for community building at all stages. Offloading processes to systems is fine if you're at a place where it makes sense for your community's stage (e.g. if you have a well-established community with tons of members and other people helping with moderation and engagement, or if it's something simple like routine threads, newsletters, or social media), but once communities lose that high-touch feeling a bit of the magic is gone and (at least in my opinion) it's hard to get back.

Definitely looking forward to seeing how your community-building journey evolves, you're going to develop some great insights that I'd love to hear!
