I would like to keep categories to a minimum


#1

I want to keep discussion focused. If we see lots of discussion around something regularly and it looks like it would make a good category then we can look into that. But atm I think less is more.

I specifically also want to nudge people to thread all the discussion about posted Hangouts games.


#2

I will also note: there is sub-category functionality as well.


#3

How do you make subcategories? And which ones are you thinking of making?


#4

You make subcategories the same way you make categories, you can just organize them under other ones. Right now the only thing I might suggest for subcategories would be splitting up stuff in the Content category (ie Codex, Podcast, etc.)

I figure after a few months we can review tags and see if heavy usage of any in particular nudges us to new (sub) categories.


#5

I was wondering if we might end up with subcategories under RPG chat for DW, AW, Monsterhearts, etc.


#6

Totally possible, but I want that to happen organically and be data-driven. I am a big believer in YAGNI.
