Synchronous vs Asynchronous Conversation Priorities
There is no set number on how quickly you should respond, and you cannot base your response times on what other brands are doing. If you are doing things the same as your competitor, you may just be setting yourself up for failure.

The best way to think about this is how quickly your customer expects you to respond to specific questions/posts.

Thanks to @CoolSunilG for bringing up a great topic: how to pull a list of users who were removed from the community. @jamiemccardle, and @CyJervis chimed in with some helpful ideas - way to go, y'all!

Some topics may be good for building community, but can conflict with metrics like Time To First Response (TTFR), @keithkelly points out. What's the best solve? Many of our Titans chimed in with advice and ideas, proving once again what a fantastic crew they are - high five to all of you!
