We want our Forum to be simple and accessible to everyone. This is why we are thinking about some changes that will generally make your life (as a Forum member) easier.
Let’s take a moment to think about the ways to do it! The idea is for us to share our vision and for you to (constructively) criticize it
In general there will be several small changes that will be part of the bigger picture.
First of all, categories and tags. There are too many of them, which makes things confusing. Our idea is to significantly reduce the amount of categories, and to increase the usage of tags.
The new categories, which will swallow the smaller ones, will look like that
(each line is one root category, except for Releases which will still contain its sub categories):
News Releases (and all its subcategories) RPA Dev Rookies RPA Dev Advanced Academy User Voice UiPath Go! and UiConnect! Ask in Your Language 日本 中文 Korea RPA 개발자를 위한 공간 Random
The reason we want to reduce the amount of categories is to allow you to quickly decide where to post. This might also help us to adapt the layout to be more visually appealing.
It should not take you 5 minutes to decide which category is the proper one for your type of post and this is what we are trying to fix
Less categories should also come with the increased usage of tags. Those will become really important to allow us to quickly address certain types of issues (with Studio, Orchestrator, Cloud Platform, etc). This is why we will create a simple tagging guide to be followed when creating new topics. It is also quite possible some of you might be allowed to become guardians of the tags
That is all for now. Please let us know how you see these changes, we are counting on your feedback!
I will let myself tag some people from here and here. You have already showed us that you care, so please have a go and provide us with your input
