  • Build a community, not just a mailing list.
  • Be very conscious of tone.
  • Followup with constructivly with criticisms on blogs (ie "Thanks for you criticism, how can we do this better?").
  • Be careful of trolls, and just ignore them. Possibly ban them.
  • Spam can't be an afterthought. Don't think oh, we won't get spammed. Google groups does a good job.
  • Listen to the community. Everyone has good and bad ideas.
  • Don't pay too much attention to vocal minority. But be willing to take big risks when the community asks for them.
  • Have to be willing to ask for help and delegating things.
