It might be worth mentioning clearly somewhere that admin can view everything on the website even private messages.
There should be a gdpr cookie notice , it is available as a plugin.
Some forums disable browsing user directory. I don’t have any link right now but I read somewhere it adds load on the server to list that page when there are thousands of users - https://discuss.kde.org/u/
Do we need trust level 4 for new joined users even if they have invent account? I think trust level 1 or 2 might be enough. trust level 4 gives way more control. Anyone will create an invent account and instantly get higher trust level. This is just a thought.
The favicon is white on white when browser theme is light
The landing page can also have categories listed so that we can see all the categories.
Have a tutorial post educating users how discourse works. And also a commonly asked question post. These can be made as a wiki which users above certain trust level can edit.
I’ll update the post when I find more points. Also happy to help in any ways possible.
Isn’t that required only if we use non essential cookies? Currently when visiting the website while not logged I get 0 cookies and then logged in I get the session cookies (but those are required for being logged) and a logged_out_marketing_header_id cookie. The last one looks more suspicious but I didn’t find any explanation about it online
I do not know the exact law about it, but I think even the plugin that is offered in the discourse forum is not suitable as it just informs the user. As far as I know rather than informing the website should take consent before using or loading the cookies. The essential cookies may be exempted from this I do not know for sure.
I agree that I don’t trust myself enough to be given Level 4 privileges…
Another minor point that I’ll mention is that in the “Discuss” logo in the top left corner the last ‘s’ is cut off a bit. Otherwise I’m quite satisfied with the setup so far.
Hello, a feedback regarding the format of the emails.
I guess it would be good to rename the email format of the FROM field to KDE Discuss <firstname.lastname@example.org> and the subject prefix to [KDE Discuss] in order to be able to quickly identify in the email inbox which emails are from this KDE forum and which are from others.
I participate in a few other forums that use discourse, and they all use the same setup, which makes it a little tricky to tell them apart quickly without actually opening the email.
I guess this change would not be so complicated to make.
1 - It currently shows like this in Gmail:
My suggestion is to configure discourse in order to show like this:
2 - Same for the From field in the email body. This is what we currently have:
This is what it should look like after configuration in the discourse:
