Discourse has a “Solved” plugin, which allows topics to be marked as, well, Solved. This is useful for Q&A, of course, and it’s enabled in general on Ask Fedora. But, it’s also kind of extra clutter where topics aren’t something with a solution, so I was hesitant to turn it on generally.
@hhlp showed me that this can be enabled on a per-tag basis. So, I turned it on for a number of tags in the tag-group here in Site Help & Feedback — #help, #problem, #request, and #idea. (But not #guide, because for that, the intention is for the first post in the topic to provide the solution.)
I originally set up the Project Teams category to require at least one tag from the Fedora Teams and Interest Groups tag group, and to not allow other tags at all — I didn’t want to make it too much more complicated.
I’ve changed this to also allow the Help & Feedback tags to be used (but they are not required). That way, you could tag something as #docs and #problem, and then mark it solved when the problem is resolved.
Since it seems like a non-dangerous experiment, I went ahead and did this already — that way, you can try it out. Note that when posting, you need a team tag first — the other tags will only show up after you’ve selected at least one of those.
What do you think?
- Yes, that would be helpful
- No, that’s too complicated
- No, but we should enable Solved in a different way
- Maybe later, but not right now — too much at once!
- Not sure, but we can try it
- I just like to vote
