The perfect Island
At this point you are ready to create your own Island. The perfect Island will surely be an Island with an identity enclosed in its Creator, who will transmit to the members of his Island the importance of being part of it and the values contained within it. If you are a fan of engines, you will surely be the right person to create an Island focused entirely on engines and everything related to them. Our advice is therefore to create an Island inherent to a topic that you care about and that you are sure you can pioneer at the time of creation and in the future.
Create interaction and become the number one member of your Island, the one who encourages users to join and publish within it. Make sure that the content posted is always relevant to the topic of your Island, and be prepared to remove what is not centered. The ability to start Island challenges will increase your Island's engagement and popularity, use them with care. Don't leave your Island abandoned and make sure, in case you don't succeed, that someone takes care of it for you, such as an administrator, a trusted user who shares your passion for engines(example) and who can take your place in case you are missing for a period.
We are sure that we have given you the right motivation to administer your first Island.
