Question for community managers who work at platform companies. We have community members who will build plugins to augment our platform. By virtue of the ever-changing nature of our platform we will sometimes release updates that render their plugins unnecessary.
For the large part this is completely unintentional. we don't keep a repository of member plugins and add-ons. However, I'm wondering for folks with similar communities, if you did know about a specific plugin that your company would be replicating the functionality of natively offered tools, do you give any advanced communication to that member?
We're wondering if doing so would set a dangerous precedent if we missed something going forward. Would love to know what you all think!
