I may be quite wrong of course Mary, but this seems really bad form.
If a community forum exists, and there is thought of shutting it down, then we can post a message to the effect "Is anyone using this, do you mind if we shut you down?"
If there is no response, that is an answer. If there is one response, that is an answer. etc. The reason why this interests me comes back to my first ever hotline I set up with students. The demand seemed very high. The use was very low. The feedback at the end of the year was superb. One student told me "I never used it, but I sometimes heard from my friends what they had found out, and I liked knowing it was there" It's the rubber duck syndrome in a way: you have no hotline so you worry what to do with a problem. You have a hotline so you think "What shall I say,?" and in the process of thinking, sometimes get an answer.
Of course, if it was a burden to Daniel, that is another issue. You do need a moderator for this kind of thing.
I kind of have this romantic view that Moodle.og should be everywhere. Even Bulgaria. If it's low use, just ready for the day when it is needed in a hurry in a big way.
In principle, do you tell people ahead of time what is going to happen with Moodle.org or do we just find out?
