One of the top frustrating things about having a growing audience is that you can not rely on any shared or historic knowledge. Everything has to be said with the assumption that the reader has not seen a single other word from you and knows nothing about you. Every thought or announcement has to inline all the fundamentals.

@Gargron Yeah that's a huge thing, I've long thought about ways to build in 'detail-on-demand' for newcomers to interactions in online communities.


@leahdriel @Gargron Have you written up your thoughts on this anywhere? I'd be interested to read them. 💡
