I’m formulating a plan for inclusion efforts on vis.social, with the goal of making this a more diverse (and therefore more valuable and sustainable) social space.
But… I don't know what I'm doing! Please review and comment to me here, or in the doc:

Hi, folks! Apparently we are up to ~4,000 users here on vis.social. Exciting!
