I would like to figure out a simple means of community projects tapping the collective insight here on the forum. The kind of use case I am thinking of here is that a project wants to accomplish a goal, or simply doesn’t know where to start in building a community, and wants to have a simple way to solicit some guidance.
This is what I am thinking might be a good start.
Firstly, I will create a Ask An Expert category here on the forum. I will then create a post template (this is text that appears inside a new post within that category) which helps the poster ask a decent question.
A rough draft of what this template might look like:
Thanks for asking a question! Please replace the [square sections] below to ask your question. Be sure to stay tuned to the topic for answers!
Your Community: [add it here]
Purpose of the Community: [add it here]
Community Website: [add it here]
[replace this with your question]
I will then enable the Accepted Answer Plugin so the user can then accept a particular answer in the thread.
We can then reach out to different communities to invite questions.
Thoughts, feedback, recommendations?
