Well, we're not too numerous to fight link-spamming comments, to discuss the organisation's future and... organisation -- and of course to put a smile on everyone's face for the sake of a friendly atmosphere (wink to Madhu here, who isn't working in the web sphere anymore but who stuck to evolt nonetheless). I feel like we spend more and more time telling people to behave. That of course doesn't improve the friendly community atmosphere. I hate sounding like a cop, really ;) There are some people who come to evolt now that it's successful and use it as a self-promotional tool, not to say anything about abusing others publicly. I'm sure it's not specific to evolt, though. (see the comments on ALA for instance) As for me, I really feel better in this community now than, say, two years ago... maybe it's just because I'm more involved in it, I don't know. But that's an interesting point. Would you be able to pinpoint how it changed, what were the factors behind the change, etc? stef - community! community!
