A Community Administrators Bible,
This review is from: Managing Online Forums: Everything You Need to Know to Create and Run Successful Community Discussion Boards (Paperback)Speaking as a community moderator on two of Patrick's websites I can personally say the tactics Patrick describes in this book work and work efficiently. Whether it's merely getting things started or handling the most outrageous violations every aspect of a community is covered in the book.
It's great for beginners and the advanced as Patrick's experience spans over several communities and years, the book is after all based on battle tested tips.
Whether or not you run your website exactly like prescribed in the book isn't a problem, as that what it doesn't try to do. The book opens your eyes on the many different ways you can run each aspect of your community, good or bad. "Managing Online Forums" is a must read for any new community administrator, or even a veteran looking for a refreshing view on community management!
