What is "Site Feedback"?

Why do we need a Site Feedback category?

This is where communities come together to decide who they are and what they are about.

This is a place is for the people who enjoy the forum so much that they want to go beyond merely reading and posting, to work toward improving our community together. #site-feedback is where all leadership and governance forms, a place for debate and evaluating direction.

It is also community memory, documenting the history of your community and its culture. There’s a story behind every evolution in rules or tone, and these shared stories bind communities together. #site-feedback is the home for all the tiny details that make your community unique: its terminology, its acronyms, its slang.

What kinds of Site Feedback topics can I post?

  • Which topics should we allow and encourage? Which topics should we explicitly discourage?

  • What sort of replies are we looking for? What makes a good reply versus one that is out of bounds or off-topic?

  • What are our standards for community behavior, beyond what is defined in the FAQ?

  • How can we welcome new members of our community and encourage them?

  • Are we setting a good example for the kinds of discussions we want in our community?

  • What problems and challenges does our community face, and what can we do about it?

  • How should we moderate our community, and who should the moderators be? When should we flag posts?

  • How do we publicize and grow our community?

  • What does does TLA mean? Who was Kilroy and why does everyone drop his name when they make a typo?

  • How should (or why did) the rules change?
