After you write an ask or an offer, we'll check in a few days after you post to see how things are going.
Checking in gives you the opportunity to share your story, say thank you, close your post, and share feedback with us so we can improve your Switchboard experience.
Success Stories are your way of letting the community know that things worked out with your post, and they are usually no more than about 2 sentences long. Share your success story during the check-in process—and don't forget to thank the people who helped you!
Success stories live at the bottom of your post. They also appear in the main sidebar and in the story feed.
You can also write a success story more directly by by clicking the "Add Success Story" button under the bottom right corner of any post. Whether you wrote the post or were affiliated in some way, you can use the "Add Success Story" button to share the results of your interactions in particular posts.
