        Because of designers and their personality traits and things they do/don't value. We are selfish, don't want to share resources and we easily jump to judge everything. People tried to build communities but never really succeeded, we would have tons of them by now.

          Seems like the only way feedback + growth + questions + friendship type design communities work is if you create your own with a few like-minded people. Sort of like a Mastermind Group but less formal. A slack channel could be all that's needed.

            Yes and I think the level of the experience needs to be on the same level between members to work

          This is actually very interesting point. I've joined several design groups and development groups on Facebook, and it's strange that design groups are always very quite regardless of the number of members, whereas dev groups are usually very active. hmm..

      By this thread you can see they work, just look at the number of members. However agree it may work quite differently, designers are more effective in small groups and safe environment. What may work here is interconnected local groups of people, but didn't found any platform for that.

        It works when designers need a medium to complain about something, that's another thing. Sketch threads where people bash the software for its bugs are usually the most active, yes.
