What, another meta? What's this site for?

9

Codidact Meta is for questions about the instance that we will host. It is not about the platform itself; for that, please continue to use the forum and GitHub.

But what does that leave, you ask? Use this meta site for questions about:

  • instance-level policies and governance
  • new communities that would (or might) like to join us and how to help them
  • setup/configuration of our instance (URLs, services, integrations, etc)
  • emergent patterns on our communities that might need to be fed back to the platform developers (community X has this need and is currently kludging it by doing Y; what would help them? etc)

It's also fine to ask questions about using the software itself (currently QPixel, later Codidact). If it turns out to be a bug someone can file a report on GitHub so it doesn't get lost, but I assume there will be "how do I do X?" and "why did this do that?" questions. Those are fine.

Finally, I see that Codidact Meta has a meta site. That's built into QPixel. We should probably, um, ignore that.

What about using the codidact meta meta site for questions about qpixel, while codidact meta would be more about the future site that will be Codidact? Is that too much/too confusing/putting boundaries where there doesn't need to be any? Mithrandir24601 4 months ago

@mithrandir24601 I worry that that would add confusion. Meta is already "another place"; meta meta even more so. We can use a QPixel tag for questions that are specifically about this platform, and then when we migrate to the Codidact platform we can archive those. How does that sound?

I'm pretty sure we can remove the meta/meta link safely for this site... PinnyM 4 months ago

@MonicaCellio [how do I reply/ping here?] Seems reasonable to me - it's not like I was panicking or anything about meta meta not being used, it was just a random thought that might/might not have been any good really :) Mithrandir24601 4 months ago

@Mithrandir24601 your comment pinged me. Looks like we don't have auto-complete but if you spell out a name it pings. Monica Cellio 4 months ago
