Hi I'm Paul and I am a 10-year Community veteran running a bunch of different VBulletin forums in various verticals. I really enjoy the day-to-day reactions of our communities to each others' posts and to events relevant to the community's niche (and sometimes less so, the reactions to world/political events that seep in, but that's a whole thing lol).

I'd like to see more here about demonstrating the value of Community to our bosses/companies, as it is a really difficult thing to quantify, and our careers and comp depend mightily on not being seen as soft-skill "babysitters" who simply provide basic customer service and maintenance. If you can recommend posts to follow, I'm all ears!
