How do I create a community?

You can create a new community on the Create New Community page.

Community usernames fall under the same restrictions as journal usernames: numbers, lower-case letters, and underscores. Underscores cannot be at the beginning or end of usernames, and you cannot have a username with more than one underscore in a row.

When you create your community, you will be asked to select various community settings. These include membership, posting, and content settings.

More details on the setting options for communities are available in the Community Management FAQ.

There is a limit on how many communities each personal account can create, to prevent spam and name-hoarding. Currently, each personal account can create three communities per week.
