Community Management Wiki

A Planet is an aggregated feed of Blogs, usually blogs by members of a given community. Planets are particularly popular in Open source software communities.

Examples include:


  • Planet (the original software)
  • Venus (updated/better version(?))

Best practices[]

  • Make it clear what the scope of your planet is -- who can be a part of it?
  • Give clear instructions for how to be added to the planet (eg. do people have to email the maintainer?)
  • If you have policies about expected behaviour, suitable content, etc, express them clearly on the planet webpage
