*- The online community manager role is a growing and developing
profession. People in this position work to build, grow and manage
communities around a brand or cause.*

That's the kind of person I want to hire. They would do what they can to
increase the number of editors on my wiki and create a community on the
site - something I've not managed to do myself. They would look into making
things easy for new editors, from converting readers into editors and
creating a positive social atmosphere on the wiki. It would be helpful for
them to also be subject matter experts although its not required.

Has anyone here done something like? If so, can you share your experiences?
And do you have any tips on finding a person who would be really good at
this role?

thanks
Dan
