Proposal: how to use this blog for discussions – Update

Hi Team!

In June 2018 I wrote a proposal to create some guidelines for posting on this blog and how to use it also for project management.
At the time I made the mistake of mixing up two topics on the same post, so today I am writing an updated proposal only for the first part.

Guidelines to post on the Community Team blog

I reviewed the document that I wrote a year ago. It’s open for comments, awaiting for your feedback!

Categories and Tags

A bit messy to say the least.

I did try to make sense of the categories. There were 24 initially: I deleted the ones that are not used and added one (Documentation) to post about changes in documentation, text of WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. websites, MeetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. pages, HelpScout replies.

The tags situations is worse: we started with 401, I deleted all the empty ones, but I think there is ample space for making this better.

For this part of the project, I am looking for volunteers to help out: information architects, SEO experts, where are you?

Where we could put the guidelines

  • Welcome Box
  • Sticky box in the blog, very short so it doesn’t push the rest of the content too much below the fold
  • New pages related to the Welcome Pack, a project that I will pick up in the next few weeks.

Want to help make the blog better?

Please comment on the document and on this post before July 31st

And if you are an Information Architect or a SEO expert, help us make the categories and tags system more efficient so people can actually find what they are looking for!

Thank you!
