Thanks Aaron this is helpful!
So would the the final version of this would that the wiki is essentially a bunch of tags? So. e.g. the tag for certificates of impact has an article-length description (written by Pablo) ?
I’m a bit confused :)
The Wiki would take the form of a bunch of tags, but a tag can be of any length and use all Forum formatting, so the articles should be flexible.
Many initial tags/articles will have long descriptions, but many others won’t. When Pablo finishes uploading the first batch of long descriptions, we’ll do a lot of advocacy on the Forum for people to start treating the tags as a Wiki and making lots of updated. This might involve prizes or something like that, but I don’t expect the launch to happen for a couple of months, so I don’t have details to share yet.
Echoing what Vaidehi said, I think it’s somewhat unusual for a wiki to be built into a tag system, so I’d like to advocate for seeing if there’s a way to make it more intuitive and less confusing, ideally in a way that doesn’t require explaining/tutorials but is immediately obvious to users. Perhaps the solution could be to simply to use the term “wiki” instead of “tags” in most places.
I think the changes will be less confusing once we have:
A full post outlining what’s happening
All of Pablo’s wiki content imported and available to read
We’re still figuring out some timelines, but I expect (1) to happen within two weeks, and to contain information on the timing of (2).
I do expect us to move to a term like “wiki” or “concepts” instead of “tags” in many places once we’re further along in the project.
