Why did we build Spaces?
Quora’s mission is to grow knowledge, but often the knowledge can get lost. In an effort to ameliorate this issue, we determined that groups with self-defined norms and boundaries may facilitate knowledge growth and preservation.
Users in Spaces have designated roles that help enforce norms and build knowledge.
