Sam - I am new to discourse. I work for a non-profit representing over 10,000 surgeons, and we just set our discourse instance to assist with doctors working in our field of interest (OB/GYN’s) I am trying to fast track myself to get up to speed will do whatever I can to help. Wondering if you want to refer institutions to work with those of us already up and running. Feel free to reach out to me.

Thanks Sam and Discourse team for this. I’d like to offer help in a somewhat more specific way I haven’t seen mentioned here yet: integrating Discourse with your WordPress site.

I work with two sites that use both platforms (linked via the awesome WP Discourse plugin) and would be happy to advise on setup for this sort of thing. This could be useful if you already have a blog or course site on WordPress and are interested in integrating Discourse for discussion / commenting. I’m in NYC, English only but happy to help folks anywhere if I can.

I run the Unschooling Community, Unschooling.com, which uses Discourse and has lots of information, unschoolers to connect with, and is a haven for those seeking a paradigm shift in their education. With a massive global population of people homeschooling & unschooling now, we can embrace valuable communities that have been using Discourse already.

Note… to help close the loop here I added guidance for communities seeking help into the OP:

How do you connect to people in this topic?

If you would like the communities help running your project please read through this topic and pick a few candidates based on time zone and the expertise you they have. Feel free to start a private message with a few of the candidates to discuss next step. If you are not sure what to do, include @sam on the message and I will try to help out.

To start a PM click on the avatar of the user and start a message.

You will need to be trust level 1 on meta for that option to show up, so browse around for 10 minutes and you should become trust level 1.
