Weird things are happening on Discourse lately. For instance, right now I’m looking at your 6-day-old post, and Discourse is showing a notice above it that reads, “It’s been a while since we’ve seen fweimer — their last post was 8mon ago.”
(Unless that means your last post before this one? If so, (a) why would it be telling me that, and (b) way to not be clear.)
Worse, it’s still there, and I know you’ve at least posted comments elsewhere since then — but I guess those don’t count. Seems if you don’t start your own threads often enough, it tries to guilt-trip the rest of us into throwing you Seeeeekrit welcome-back celebrations. #FreshHell
@mattdm@bcotton - saw your replies in the ticket but thought it more appropriate to respond here rather than in a council ticket.
I’m willing to volunteer to assist with discourse, just let me know.
Regarding duplicating mailing lists here, if it’s not possible at a minimum I think it would be helpful to post important announcements here in discourse somewhere as well as in the mailing lists. I can’t imagine that be controversial. Also, opening up a few additional categories I would think should be ok. The devel list as it stands now has turned into a catch all group, and in recent threads people admitted as such - so many discussions there aren’t related to a specific team. Discourse should also be able to have such a category.
But again, that depends on what the Fedora strategy is for Discourse. If it’s just test and nobody is serious about using it, then why bother - but if it is viewed as a future direction we should try to utilize it to the fullest extent.
For those not following the council ticket, we are talking to CommOps about helping manage this. That won’t restrict moderators to CommOps folks though, but could get us a quick hit of people to help. Are there others, like @gbcox interested in helping?
