A new Judaism community
Update: site is now launched. Please continue the discussions that began here on the meta there.
There has been some discussion on StackExchange's Judaism community (called MiYodeya, MY) to host a Judaism-oriented community on Codidact. As I write this, the proposal collected 18 positive votes.
As I wrote there, hosting such a community here would have a number of benefits (incl. the community-first approach, the fact that one of MY's former moderator is a leader in Codidact, new site-specific features that were impossible on SE). The objective of this post is to see if there is a critical mass of users interested in a Codidact Jewish community and to discuss design elements.
Here is a first list of interesting design elements to discuss:
- Name? Judaism? Jewish Life? Jewish Learning? Something else?
- What would be interesting features to customise/develop for a Jewish community? Examples could be a disclaimer (see e.g., here, specific area for divrei Torah, specific features for Purim Torah)?
- Seeding the new site with MY questions would be incredibly helpful to visitors and is legal. What would we want to import? High-value posts? Certain tags? Most open questions with positive scores? Anything in between?
Any other ideas, wishes, suggestions? Have you ever wished MY would do something it doesn't do? Behave in a different way? Here is the place to share and discuss !
