This website should add more features.

  1. Watch Tags. [I think this site doesn't contain Watch Tags. We(user) don't like watch lot of question(topic of everything). Using the Watch Tags we could only follow those question which we mark as our favourite.]
  2. Jobs. [Adding jobs category will be very helpful for everyone.]
  3. An Android Application for Codidact.
  4. How to ask a good question? [New users like me don't know how to ask a good question. So, they should read some documentation while it hadn't added in codidact.]
  5. mentioning user in comment. [In this post I was trying to comment mentioning Mithical but, I didn't get any response like we get when I type @. I think the feature should be added. Suggestion of user(I forgot to write this).]
  6. Notification read. [I notice that if I have a unread notification and I open that notification(link) by clicking that, than that notification isn't marking as read. I always have to click on Mark as Read]
  7. Comment link. [We(user) sometimes have to share link of comment. So, if we click on any comment's "time" than, the link of comment should be copied or shown.]

Sorry! Sometimes I do English translation mistake. So, If I did this time than, I am extremely sorry.

Your English is fine, don't worry! If something's unclear, people can ask about it. Monica Cellio‭ 19 days ago

Thanks for your feature requests. I'm going to respond to all your points one by one:

  1. Watching tags. We already support having questions highlighted based on a set of favorite tags. You can set those tags in your preferences. If this is not what you're looking for, please describe your idea more and we can look into it.

  2. Jobs. I'm sorry, but that's currently not on our agenda. We want to provide a space for communities to share knowledge; providing a job market space is not a part of our goal, especially as it comes with a lot of responsibilities and care that we don't have the resources for. If a community were to want having a list of job offers, they'd be free to. They could also create a Jobs category if they want, but I don't think adding extra tooling is a good use of our limited resources.

  3. Android Application. Developing and supporting a mobile application is a lot of effort. We'd need to develop an API and a mobile interface. Given that there are only two people really active as development team and that both of us are still volunteers and have a lot of other stuff besides Codidact to do, we don't have the capacity to do this right now. Furthermore, I don't really see an advantage for a mobile app. The website is quite mobile friendly and can be used well on smaller screens to. If you find an issue, please tell us, because we'd rather optimize the existing views.

  4. Question Help. This already exists. You can find information in our help center, which is also linked in the header of every page. If you have a suggestion for improving an help article or for a new article that might be helpful to you or others, feel free to suggest that here on Meta. The moderators on any of our communities can add and edit help articles too, so if something is community-specific, you should make the suggestion in the Meta category of that community.

  5. Mentioning in Comments. We already support mentioning other people in comments. From what I can see, you already did that correctly. There is just no support yet for showing, whether you're currently pinging a user or not. This is on our TODO list; comments are being improved and re-implemented right now, but you'll need to be patient for some more time.

  6. Notifications. Notifications should already be marked as read when you click on them (as far as I know), but they are kinda tricky and marking them as read isn't working really well. We'll probably improve that in the future.

We'll probably improve that in the future actually, I was doing open in new tab. That's why it wasn't marking as read. Istiak‭ 20 days ago
