Q&A

Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.

Posts tagged feature-request

Requests for new features or changes to this site.
Tag Wiki

To track requests, you can filter on the status tags:

Here is a filter definition that shows all tagged feature requests:

Filter settings; set to include tags "feature-request", and exclude tags "status-completed, status-norepro, status-planned, status-bydesign, status-declined, status-deferred".

Any feature request that our team thinks we should do or are planning to do gets logged as an issue on our GitHub repository (with some delay to allow for discussion on Meta first) — this is what our devs look through for things needing to be done.
