Your thoughts about posting to the LINCS CoP

Hello LINCS Community of Practice (CoP) colleagues,

Earlier this year I received an e-mail from a LINCS community member who had the following observations about the LINCS groups. I wonder what your thoughts are about them: do any of these describe how you yourself feel, or how colleagues of yours feel? What could we do to address these concerns, to improve the LINCS Community?

  • “[I’m] wondering if others that don't post much, or have not posted at all, may struggle with feeling like, ‘I don't want to interrupt the flow others have going, but I do want to share this thought but I just can't figure out where it should go.’ “ 
  • “I wonder how many of our lurkers on LINCS really feel they have thoughts to share but they just don't know where or how to share them.”
  • “Of course, some just like to read the conversations and enjoy their lurking. I suspect we have a decent number of people that just feel intimidated jumping into some of these massive discussions with very verbose posts from some people.”
