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.
Introducing proposals.codidact.com, a new way to add communities to our network
A few weeks ago we asked for feedback on a new way of developing community proposals for our network. Thanks to your feedback we made some adjustments (and also a couple small code changes we realized we needed), and then asked the Webmasters proposal to try it out. We're now ready to make the switch and invite everyone to join in.
We launched the new Community Proposals site to replace the Site Proposals category on Meta. Instead of making a proposal post and waiting for enough people to express interest, you now make a proposal post and start asking and answering questions for that community, right there on the Proposals site. We see several benefits to this:
Real live questions help to flesh out a community's scope, particularly edge cases.
If you're proposing a community you probably have questions now, and this way you can start getting answers.
Active Q&A gets people involved and helps everybody see that people are involved. It's better signal than a months-old comment expressing interest.
When the community launches, it already has a starting body of work.
The linked post has more details about how to use it, and includes a link to help with even more details. The Codidact team is actively monitoring, so if you have questions or run into problems, please raise them on the meta category there.
We have several proposals in the Site Proposals category here on Meta, some recent and many older. If you are involved in one of those proposals, please create a proposal on the new site (you can copy/paste your post to start) and we'll continue developing it there together. We're not moving proposals wholesale for a couple reasons: first, we don't know if some of the older ones still have interest, and second, it's better if the comment pings go to the organizer, not the staff member who happened to copy posts over.
We've changed the original Site Proposals category to not be visible to anonymous users. It's still visible if you're logged in and we've left a note there pointing to the new site. We also left comments on recent proposals about the change.
