Community is a word that is used very often for everything from online forums and social networks to towns, churches or social groups. Community can be any and all of these things but community to me means something even closer. Living with a group of people, a range of all ages, working together, eating together, enjoying life together, going through difficulties together. Community to me is giving up personal rights, rights being "I need, I want" for what is good for everyone, what makes other people comfortable and happy and those people doing that for you. That is community to me.
What can community be online? Can there be an active supportive community. Is the Wiki the place to do it or should we find another avenue to try?Tracy Pemberton 06:24, September 22, 2010 (UTC)
