This is a companion topic to the following one started by @Ja sa bong :
https://admin-junkies.com/threads/i...-you-think-your-community-will-hold-up.15208/

The above topic is an interesting hypothetical, but a better, sharper, and more realistic question is the following: how much resiliency hace you constructed in to your community?

For community management, have you articulated what your staff can do versus what they shouldn't do?

For your hosting, if you're not available who is your fallback to investigate, diagnose and resolve issues?

And most importantly, for the finances, how far out are you prepared to spend on your hosting, domain, updates, and mods?

I think there is zero level of resiliency in my communities.
My communities are very small, they are basically one man show. I do not have a lot of organic activities, and my user vase is very small.
The thing is you need to invest heavily to grow a strong community. Which is not possible for small forum owners.

It's the nature of project you want to work with that will have a say on what you are expected to spend on running of your community.

I've meet someone who makes use of only free forum software like Proboards to run his forum. This kind of webmaster wouldn't be interested in breaking his pocket to run the forum or pay any staff to work for him.
