Discourse groups are great, but their home is still quite puritan - and their presentation inconsistent. This is the way the group metadata are shown on /groups:
The group ID is the most prominent element, even though there’s a nice “phenotype” available.
On the group page itself it’s the other way round:
I wonder why the ID is shown at all - instead of just showing the full name and the title that the members get?
What I would also love to see here is an editable banner / descriptive text that briefly explains what groups are and why the users should join them.
Same goes for /tags: Nice minimal layout, but wouldn’t this be good place to briefly explain what you can do with tags, eg. that you can watch, track or mute them individually? And maybe you could add the to change the watch settings for each tag on the spot?
