Ways to increase community engagement and delegation of tasks
Some discussion on Discord went on regarding this, about how it's felt Tildes doesn't do a very good job of this yet, and right now too much responsibility may be resting on too few shoulders. Some suggestions for ways to improve this were:
- Start doing Daily/Weekly Discussions on ~tildes.official again (I wouldn't mind taking over this task BTW)
p.s. I think a good first topic would be "How to make users feel less intimidated contributing to the site" in light of several people saying that simply tagging a topic was making them hesitate to submit things for fear of making a mistake.
- Launch an Official Wiki. The unofficial one is already being used to decide community standards (e.g. the hierarchical tagging guide being worked on by alyaza, Tildes "how to" guide by Algernon_asimov, etc), which is probably better done on an official one
- Consider adopting the new Unofficial Tildes Discord (admin'd by @Bauke, WandaSeldon, Deing and Clerical_Terrors) as the official Discord and start promoting it (as well as getting @Deimorz to start using it ;)
- Create some more ~tildes groups that mirror things on gitlab (e.g. commits to ~tildes.commits, issues to ~tildes.issues) so people can be more aware and can participate more easily.
To upload designs, you'll need to enable LFS and have admin enable hashed storage. More information
