Hi. I joined this community because I just started a new community for Google Play Books. I've never done this before and thought to join a place where people talk about the mechanics of building G+ communities. I look forward to "digitally" meeting you all.

Hi All,
I joined the community to be a more informed moderator. I just started a two year nursing program and volunteered to be a class representative. My first action was to create a space where I could communicate information from the faculty and administrators to our class. As Google+ and Hangouts both have apps for both iPhone and Android, (and I already had an account) I signed my class up for a new community.

Looking forward to getting some good tips!

Hi guys,

I am Oscar Hutchins and I am the Chief Moderator for the largest Music community with 26,000 members.

I thought that I could offer some advice for all of those Moderators that Moderate minor communities.

Hi +Michael Alperstein ,

The way people find our community and other communities is, they go onto the section 'Communities' then look for the search bar and search for Music, My community should be the first one with the globe with the headphones on.

The way that I suggest you grow a community is that you share it to other 'Big' communities like 'Joke Of the Day' or  'Sports' and see if people join your community after then.

Our community does not have a website it is only for Music lovers on Google+, but having a Google+ Community or Page would help your website a lot.

I hope that this helps,
Oscar :D

+Robert Prol Considering the topic matter, not everyone may want to draw that much attention to it though.

Hello fellow community moderators!  Looking forward to see what is offered here in this community as I work with my Team to build an exclusive private community.  As of now, we are wondering how to best use categories.  Hoping to search and find out!

I moderate (with others) a couple of private communities that are related to muddling through web stuff, and another that's technically public but very niche, providing support for writers on a group blog. My primary intention here is to lurk and learn.

Hey Beautiful,

I just joined this community to better moderate my Etsy seller community. Being a moderator has really forced me to be super active on Google+, which I'm falling in love with. I'm definitely ready to learn some neat tips and tricks.

<3 Brittany

Hello, Dag & ¡Hola!

I'm Viviana moderating several communities interested in multicultural- and bilingualism -- mostly in the English, Dutch and Spanish languages.

I am interested in joining this community to exchange knowledge about the best practices and any tips.

As read here previously, kudos to the moderators for starting this community.

Hi Karen! And thank you so much for message. Sounds terrific about your interest to learn Swedish. I good friend of mine says it's similar to Dutch. Now, I speak Dutch and can see abit of the similarities but can't say I understand it fully. Wish you a fun learning!

What is there to tell...

From the start of comunities I have owned/moderated several. 
For me the most important is the community of +Food, Foodies & Future . 

I hope that after the last update (stcky post) we will see some more updates. An option to use a decent name (like accounts & pages) would make a huge difference I think.

I have that problem with FFF a little bit. 
As you see I use 2 pages. If I look at the overall performance I must say that having a page what reshares the most important posts works very well. Pages are so much easier to follow. 
From time to time (and with posts with a discussion) I just reshare them and link them to the community for the discussion. If someone is interested to join, they can. 

I started resharing posts originally as an alternative for invites. I don't think they work very well. At least they don't work for me. They give about zero info about what it is all about.

Hello! I'm relatively new to Google + and still learning a lot about how everything works together. As the moderator or owner of a few communities (mostly private, but one public), I was very happy to see this community. Like others, at this point I will primarily be "lurking and learning."

I am a volunteer helping with the new "organizational support team" which just sprouted in a private group that is growing by leaps and bounds.  My day job is in software, and in a former life I was a community manager for a community of software developers, so I have some experience with moderation skills.  

I'm relatively new to g+ and I have some questions which I will attempt to post in the correct category.  I tried to search first but did not find my questions answered here yet.
