I thought this would make an interesting topic because we have so many forum owners, and upcoming forum owners here, so it would be a great discussion to have. So, what does community really mean to you? Personally, it means a gathering to me - where you can share your thoughts with others, trust some users, and having a ball. Without good substance, a community won't do too well. I feel that when you open up your community and give users the peace of mind that they're respected, they will have a blast and enjoy talking to other users. How about you though? What's your take on the word community, and what does it truly mean to you?
