Meta category description


#1

The place to discuss how Discourse is used by the P2PU community.


#2

What about an “Org” category, where we discuss handling invoices, staff policies, all the boring legal stuff…


#3

Wow - I didn’t even create this discussion. Discourse automatically made it after I made that first category… this is nice.

I wonder about the visibility of discussions - not sure how many options we have here / if all posts are public.


#4

I think public and open are the default (and good). Rather than trying to create private spaces here, I would prefer to keep private discussions in email or elsewhere. Making discourse support private seems counter-productive (and confusing).


#5

I edited the topic, because I noticed that discourse takes the first topic that is created as its default description for the category. When you create a new topic and select the category from the drop-down, it shows you the content from this post, which is confusing. I’ll go ahead and do the same for the other categories.
