In the process of leaving most Facebook groups I bumped across the NMW group. The New Member Welcome team was a great way to welcome new members on couchsurfing, it was shut down by the corporation at some point. Before that, I think it helped a lot in setting a good vibe and people where invited to events, creating additional trust and allowing people to slowly get acquainted with the “couchsurfing spirit”.
- will help to scale trust
- can be done by tribe
- great for creating the “spirit of trustroots”
- Requires effort to set up (code, people) and moderate (code, people)
- NMW team itself may not be scalable
What do you think?
Would you be willing to lead this effort yourself? Or do you know someone who would?
