Please eliminate corporate jargon from category descriptions

Copied from Meta:

I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but I found certain category names and descriptions on the forum really off-putting. Two examples:

  • “Coordinate Across Stakeholders – Deepen engagement with spaces for communication and collaboration.”
  • “Increase the Sustainability of Our Movement – Create people-centered approaches to generating and sharing resources.”

Please remember that you are talking to a community of volunteers. Try to make simple things sound simple in your communications, rather than using flashy corporate buzzwords that distract more than they communicate. –Andreas JN466 13:45, 16 June 2022 (UTC)

Hi, the titles of the recommendations (that we use as titles for the categories) are set, and we’d rather keep them in the forum for consistency. The second part in the description are texts that we wrote when setting up the forum, and they can be easily changed. We agree that simpler language is better.
