You probably already read my announcement of Discussions to the community. Since I haven't heard from any of the admin team yet, I'm contacting a few of you directly, to see if you've had a chance to check out Discussions. If you have, what did you think? Do you have any thoughts on what we could do to improve this new feature further?
Did you maybe even spot some app users that might make good discussion moderators, if you're not planning on moderating yourself with your fellow mods and admins?
Discussions is still in its early stages, so we really rely on feedback from the community to make this a truly awesome feature. Happy to hear any thoughts you might have!
I'm personally undecided about it.
I was a major fan of the message boards but this site stopped using it when the Chat and messages under articles were added.
Though a lot of people in Chat have been begging for a Chat app that lets them connect to the standard Chat group via an app and was so excited to see the Adventure Time Wikia app but was greatly disappointed when that app had no Chat connectivity.
Does this Discussions thing connect to the normal Chat?
Discussions works more like a forum, and isn't linked with your chat, meaning if you post something here in chat, Discussions users won't see it, and vice versa. We've seen users from other communities use Discussions quite a bit like a chat, though, having almost real-time conversations, and others use it more like a forum.
Discussions may not quite be like chat or a direct messaging app, but we still hope it'll fill the void for those users who want to talk about Adventure Time, but don't want to have to turn on their laptop or desktop for that all the time. Discussions lets them talk and connect via mobile, which wasn't possible before. (And we're also working on making Message Walls more usable on mobile, for when you want to contact someone directly)
For now, do you think we could leave the content and just remove the link? 'Cause we can't have a link to a dating site on every major page. We could decide later if we need to remove the content that was being cited.
Hey, Felinoel! I reached out to Flambo about getting the Adventure Time interview from SDCC 2015 promoted and he said that you handle all the newsletter stuff. Do you think we could get the interview featured on the current/next newsletter edition?
Hey, you seem like the top bureaucrat around here (any other admins can feel free to respond if they see this). I'm with the Community Development team. Would you guys be interested in letting us run a promotional event on here? We wanted to do an Adventure Time personality quiz sponsored by Trolli to hype up the community. You guys wouldn't have to do anything and we won't post stuff without your permission, I'm just checking to see if this is something you guys would be interested in.
Sponsored by Trolli?
If it is sponsored by them then would prefer to limit it to just the Candy People?
Also what exactly would the process be for creating this personality quiz? While I am not complaining that you guys have things made for us it is just that some of the last things made for us that did not involve the wiki community tended to miss out on a lot of information that just made it seem like it could have been better...
Also also, ATG he said, "seem like the top bureaucrat," not that I am.
Nah, sponsored content usually isn't that specific.
I am writing the content for this quiz and I would absolutely be open to suggestions. Maybe you guys want to talk in Special:Chat or something? It has to be in by the end of the day, but I'm open to any input you guys might have. If it helps to hear, I am a huge Adventure Time fan and I keep up-to-date with the series.
I would have loved to include more weird characters. I had some funny ideas for a line of questions that would lead to the Ancient Psychic Tandem War Elephant. They decided on something that only has four characters though. also: We're planning on hosting it here at the URL Adventure Time Personality Quiz if that's alright with you guys.
