    Do you consider yourself someone as an expert on building an online community? Or how do you rate yourself? I know I guess you can consider me a community expert - especially when I'm working on a niche community that I know a whole lot about. However, I don't consider myself as an expert on building a community.

    I don't know if I would call myself an expert :p But maybe a Guru? I have been managing forums for over 10 years. I used PhpBB2 in its early stages and was on ProBoards server one :D I know my way around the forum world... However, I lack some skills such as full blown coding. I am starting to get better at that though as of when I started developing my own forum software (AnotherBB :p) which is more a hobby and a "Can you do it, Shawn?" sort of project.

    I don't want to say I am an expert BUT I would like to be seen as someone to go for forum admin advice because I know a lot about forums and I LOVE to give advice :)
