my experience is its quite hard to build ‘communities’, esp with dedicated websites/forums - we are all ‘time limited’ (that said discord is pretty good software in this regard)
what I would say though is, building a community is something only the user base can do.
on most i know, often it’s ‘ignited’ by a few users who regularly contribute… and so create a reason for others to come back.
contribute… is very vague here, it could be sharing tips, presets etc,
but it can also be asking questions, creating conversations, sharing ideas.
if this is all done in a positive manner, then long term users will come and help and discuss (*)
so Id say… if you’d like to see more community, start posting and sharing…
could be music you’ve made, ideas you’ve had, presets to share , or questions on how to achieve something.
the more activity we create the more ssp users will come to see whats going on
anyway, thats my experience with more ‘complex’ stuff (e.g Axoloti, Organelle, rPI) where I find communities are really useful - more than just a support forum.
(*) this is how I usually differentiate ‘support forums’ from community forums…
support forums tend to focus on bugs and wishes which can come across quite ‘negative’ at times… people understandably always want more. but I rarely see much ‘sharing’ going on, on these forums - often users only go to them when they have a problem they want to solve.
