Our forum is used internally within our organization. The org is heterogenous, with several groups that have different primary interests. While one of the main advantages of discourse is that there is a great opportunity for cross-pollination of information and knowledge across these groups, one of the challenges is that there is a sort of “tyranny of the majority” risk where one group has such a higher volume of discussion (at this point in time, anyway), that it tends to drown out other categories.
I think the risk can be somewhat mitigated by changing the front page from /latest to /categories - though we haven’t done that just yet.
The issue is also one of the things motivating the request for this feature.
But another area where I see a possible issue is in the digests. The latest digest I received (with a test account that never visits the site) had all the topics and “New for you” posts from a single category.
Has anyone else dealt with this issue or have any tips?
Is there any way to favor having some diversity of categories represented in the digest?
