We're thinking about making some changes to the categories here in G2G.
Tags are the primary organizational method. They do the narrow categorization. The categories are a higher level of organization. As I see them, their main purpose is to enable some members to browse the posts that are likely to interest them.
For example, if you're interested in helping others with their genealogy, browse "Requests for Genealogy Help." If you've got technical skills and are experienced with how WikiTree works, share your expertise in "WikiTree Tech." If you're just looking to waste a few minutes, chat, or catch up with what's going on around WikiTree, go to "The Tree House."
What that in mind, here are three possible changes:
1.) Add a new category called "WikiTree Love." The Wonderful WikiTreer and shared photo posts would automatically be placed in this new category, instead of in the Tree House.
2.) Change the name of "Policy and Style" to ...
- Advanced WikiTreeing
- Not for Newts
- Pre-1700 and PPP
- ... or something else?
This category is mainly for advanced project stuff. I'm not sure of the best way to communicate that.
3.) Eliminate the "Requests for Project Volunteers" category. Consolidate it into The Tree House.
Do you have thoughts? G2G Moderators and regulars, I'd especially like to hear your opinions before we make any changes.
