    I have to admit that this list reads almost more like a pure marketing list than a community list.
    Let's take this list and have the comm mgr reporting into support: Then the items become: engaged members, questions answered, tips and trick proposed, KB articles read and added and so on.
    If it is in engineering? Ideas contributed, adoption of new features, feature discussions, submitted enhancements?
