As mentioned in the Frankfurt workshop, we haven’t managed to carve out our own part of the area 51 StackExchange. It would be good to thus create a Q&A category here in the forum, taking advantage of Discourse plugins for voting/best answer and tags.
Some thoughts before we dive straight in:
- What would we call this category? “Q&A”, “questions”, “questioning”, “problems”, “support”, “howto”?
- What are the most important sub-categories? “Energy Modelling”, “Copyright”, “General coding” come to mind, but that is by no means exhaustive.
- What additional functionality do we need, beyond author picking best answer in a thread, tags for posts (e.g. used to tag certain energy models, copyright types, etc.), and voting of threads (so most useful discussions are more obvious)?
There is an editable list of sub-categories and tags later on in this discussion. Please add to/question what’s in there!
For general discussion of tags used on the forum (not exclusively for Q&A), we’ll continue the discussion on the tag thread
