Hello World: The Make Community Basics

Hey, so thrilled to see you here :wave:

We’re stoked to finally have a home for all the Makers to connect, learn, and get inspired!
Sharing knowledge is so much better than hoarding it, right?

:people_holding_hands: Who’s who in the community

My name is Michaela and I am the Community Manager. I am a Make employee and I am here to make your community experience as smooth as it can be.

We have an amazing group of Moderators who are doing an excellent job helping to maintain the forum. There’s also a whole bunch of Community Leaders who live and breathe Make and are our absolute power users. Please note that none of these great folks work for Make.

And then there’s you, dear Maker, and we’re so happy to have you!

  • read the Community Guidelines
  • head over to your profile and fill out as much info about you as you wish
  • drop a few lines about yourself into our Introductions thread
