This example site is a proposal on how to advance the community forum of a volunteer project I’m part of. The goal is to move ahead from having a conversation-only community forum towards having the community at the center of the project.
The categories are: Talk, Share and Act. Team areas are only tagged. The idea is to keep teams accessible across the board and not segment the community with categories.
For this proposal I also adapted the Assign feature as Lead and the Solved plugin as Completed. Selecting Solved on a topic unassigns it by default and this actually works well here to: Lead will only show uncompleted activity leads.
It also goes well with using the Event feature to schedule activities. The only adaption here was renaming Going/Not going to Join and Leave for attendance. Out of the box it will list activities on the Upcoming events calendar, which seems handy.
How did you setup Discourse for community collaboration? I’m curious to hear of more approaches beyond a plain forum setup!
