[THANKS ALL, we’re set for now. Great to know how fabulous this community is.]
I’m looking for someone who can build a tool for us. The goal is to increase engagement among some members of the community on our private paid Discourse board.
Like most communities, it follows a power law curve, with a few totally immersed, some dipping in and out, and many lurking.
Here’s the simple spec of what we have in mind:
In the Discourse API you can find when a user was last seen
last_seen_at and when they last posted
We can set a variable for length and a variable for text content on an ad-hoc basis via a simple dashboard or entry point. For example, if a person hasn’t posted in X days, the tool sends them a pm that says, “TEXT VARIABLE.”
We could do this for either the
last_posted_at variable, at our discretion.
We’d want to trigger this manually across our community, not have it be a consistent trigger. But it would be cool if we could also have it always working, and have multiple variables (5 days for the first notice, 20 days for the second, etc.)
And a final bonus feature would be a way to, instead of sending PMs, export the registered email address of each person. We’d then use that list in Ontraport or similar.
Thanks for considering…
