I often get the sense that EA community builders (university/city/regional/national group organizers) don't spend enough time thinking about EA ideas*. It might be because of a selection bias on capabilities, the nature of community building, or just time-constraints; though that's not so important for my question.
I ask this question here so that EA community builders (including myself) can avoid making mistakes from not having thought about EA enough. The main mistakes I'm concerned about are: causing reputational damage, spreading a wrong version of EA, over-focusing or under-focusing on certain cause areas, giving bad career advice, etc., though there are probably many more kinds of mistakes.
*By "EA ideas" here I refer to a much broader class of ideas than usually presented in an Intro Program or Fellowship. Feel free to insert your own notion of what "EA ideas" mean here.
