Scale your community and reduce support burden

Slack/Discord communities are great for chatting and engaging but over time they become overwelming. As a community grows so does the number of repeat questions. As previously a former open source maintainer I wanted to minimize the number of repeat questions and encourage the community to search.

A better experience for your community

Linen is a great way to make your community content more discoverable. No longer do you need to login to your Slack/Discord workspace to view your community's content. You can link specific conversations in github issues without requiring a sign in to get the context of the issue.
