I have created the
#discourse #discourse-software tag to identify topics related to the software that runs this forum.
I have created the
#discourse_(software) might be useful renaming just to avoid potential for confusion
#revenue created thanks to Movement Strategy initiative #7: Revenue generation for the Movement
Would love something like “Public Policy” or “global advocacy”!
I’m not a specialist in this topic but… #public-policy sounds more standard, whereas #global-advocacy is more a term that is better understood within Wikimedia / the Foundation?
I feel like its long been time to create a gender issues related tag on the forum, as per @TCappelletto_WMF suggestion, how about we create #gender-gap for the time being? I suggest #LGBTIQA+ tag as well for more visibility and to collect all the information related to the topic.
New tag created: #glam
When someone posts or asks a question on a topic on the forum, chances are that they won’t receive a timely response or no response at all. This is bad. To help solve this problem, one suggestion is for us to create the #action-needed tag, which will be added to all topics that need a response.
I think it will be great because in that way everyone will get replied and the forum will be more interactive too.
Not sure that is precise enough. Also it is modaliti and not type of content, so it should not be presented in interface in the same way IMHO
I think an #action-needed tag would be a clear improvement compared to the current situation, where it is so easy to forget about open discussions. A tag not only allows to have a reminder on these topics, it also offers a page where everyone can see what are the oldest, most visited, most commented topics, which also helps prioritizing the work to respond.
@Zblace I see your point about different types of tags, but the fact is that Discourse offers only one kid of tag. I think this is a justified compromise given the benefits.
some suggestions for new tags:
Tags will definitely go a long way in drawing attention and following up on topics. We’ve seen the benefits of barely using them on social media to collate all things related to a particular topic. I’m all in support of it and I see great suggestions as well.
Maybe we can have a bit of a structure and logic about tags so they are semi-structured and not just all flat and likely overlaping. For me it feels like something we can agree as shared proposal on quickly in focused online meeting.
If I was in position to organize FORUM Office Hour I would do that
The idea of a meeting to discuss tags i very interesting! For the tags, and for the social part.
#action-needed got enough endorsements, and the tag has been created.
We don’t have a tag for posts containing #videos, and that seems useful. Is there a need to specify whether they are YouTube videos or else?
Thank you and sorry I bring all the interesting ideas that add to your work load
well, as the forum eveolves, i think that people may upload videos and media from a variety of sources, or upload their own works.
also, using the tag “youtube” helps to highlight that the main official channel for wikimedia videos is at youtube; other wikipedia groups and chapters may evetually set up a channel there as well.
i would like to suggest a few different types of tags; a) some tag where we can indicate threads for general brainstorming, collaboration, as a general forum for including many divergent topics; b) threads which are focused on specific concepts and ideas relating to Movement Strategy; c) theads relating to specific regional efforts. d) threads relating to specific thematic ideas.
