"This is something I want to have a discussion in the community about, and I welcome your (constructive) feedback and ideas. How can we create more experiences that feel personal, social, and like someone cares about your success in our community," said Bacon in conclusion on his post.

Launchpad News

New Launchpad Rollout: Please Put Translations on Hold for a Bit
