Uses in communities of practice

Technical infrastructure issues may be invisible to a community until they create barriers that prevent or constrain participation. This category includes several different issues related to a community platform’s technical capacity. See “Cross-platform issues” for a discussion of technical issues around software, platform or data incompatibilities that also affect a community’s activities. Because they are a shared resource, the technical robustness of community platforms affects everyone. However, different members of a community will place different demands on those common resources, so attention is required for the community as a whole to live within its means.
