I’d like to propose a public data export feature similar to Stack Exchange’s. This is not the same as the backup feature, because it requires sanitizing all private user data first. Both JSON and HTML export formats would be great.
This is useful for:
CC-licensed content to be made available more easily
users to feel more comfortable knowing that the site can’t suddenly disappear with all their content
Now that ChatGPT has moved the world of bots and AI closer to center stage, starting to see mention of using the data from a Discourse forum as training data. As such this topic seemed like one of two possiblities for such, the other being the Discourse Rest API.
I know admins have the ability to grab a backup and then santize the data, having a known standard would be prefered.
Can we get a current status on this even it is only, no change since last time.
