List of project ideas for Google Summer of Code 2016

Recently, I’ve been thinking about ways to make the topic list page more relevant to particular users on forums with a wide array of activity.

One topic on the subject is here:

Another approach would be to allow users to customize what tabs appear for topic lists, and what is shown within them (via a search query or a selected list of categories).

For instance, I don’t really need to see the Bugs or Features tabs here on Meta, so I might hide them. Or I might want to create a tab for Ideas which would include #features #ux and another one for Issues which would include #bug and #support. I might also want to add a Following tab that includes topics that are in:watching or in:tracking.

(I swear there is a topic exploring this idea, but couldn’t find it…)
