Question for the Forum Team on the content from Pablo’s work that has been uploaded—is any of this public yet? If yes, could you link to it/some examples of it?
Currently, Pablo is working on a series of “stub” uploads. Basically, he has a lot of fleshed-out articles done, but those link to articles he hasn’t finished, so we’re uploading articles/tags to stand in for those. This will ensure that the fleshed-out articles aren’t full of broken links.
Here are some examples of stubs:
Certificates of Impact
These are searchable on the Forum, but they aren’t visible on the “All Tags” page because I’ve made them “Wiki only” for now (so as not to clutter the page/tag selection tool).
Once the fleshed-out articles are uploaded, I’ll create a new page that makes everything easier to find, and many articles will become tags. At this point, I’d guess we have at least 100 stubs uploaded to the Forum.
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.
