I think more specific top-level or subcategories can be created for software, for example "Plasma Desktop, “Plasma Mobile”, “Applications”, and etc.
I’d like a KDE neon category for sure
Do you need to reach a specific level of trustfulness to create new categories? Or do we ask the admin? How does this work?
I am wondering if instead we should try using tags inside the software category? We can mandate a tag be selected for posts out of a tag pool. This would allow searching everything to do with plasma-mobile regardless of the category the topic is in.
Agreed I can see many topics crossing boundaries very easily. I would also assume we could have a lot more tags than categories so for example each app could have it’s own for filtering on it.
A good inspiration would be https://forum.manjaro.org
To ease the moderation burden each category can have dedicated moderator too. So the person from say neon team can moderate the respected category along with the main moderators.
Should Tips be a category or just a tag? Both have advantages. I think we’d mainly write the tips ( I imagine ask ‘fake’ questions) instead of tagging well formulated Q/A as tips, so, category? If I understand it right any moderator can move topics if needed(?).
It can be a category called Tips and Tutorials. To broaden the scope a bit people can post tips about not just plasma but all KDE software.
