I know the "community builders" are going to hate me for this.
This inspired me to create this post.
I'm writing this because I care about Indie Hackers.
When I joined, IH was a place to share insights and learn from the experiences of others. It was a place where you could still have fun while being incredibly productive.
And now it feels like that's being taken away. I don't want this community to turn into a place for selling, and there's just too much of it.
People aren't explicitly selling, I'm aware of that fact.
But most of the content I see is created with the intention to sell. It's a desperate approach, and it's making this site unbearable.
My suggestion is to significantly decrease external links, starting with a complete ban on Twitter threads with no internal context.
I know it might sound harsh, but I think it's good for the longevity of the community.
Let me know what you think.
