Last year, I formed a community for open source developers where people can ask for help for their opensource projects and community members can support help seekers.
There are some communities who are already doing the same work. But as they're hosted on some personal servers, they need to face some financial challenges. Even some communities have been closed in 3-4 years. Hence, I opted to utilize the free resources available and use the Github ecosystem to sustain long.
After a month of opening this opensource team I received feedback that I'm doing it for my own benefit. Though I asked for clarification and explained that the idea arose from my need but it is open for the world, I really didn't understand how it can benefit me only.
Keeping the feedback aside, I spend some regular time to guide new members. And it looks like they're not much motivated.
I can't spend more time as I have to manage other opensource projects as well. So should I stop managing this community?
