A couple of days ago posted a topic that didn't have a suitable existing category.
So I've had a think about a few categories and thought of two that I think might be useful, but rather than just suggesting them, I thought it would be good to also use this thread to have a little discussion about categories to see what peoples thoughts are about them.
- Are the current set of categories alright?
- Do any existing categories need clarifying?
- Are there any categories we don't already have that might be useful?
My two new category proposals are:
A "Help Wanted"/"Classified ads" section.
The main purpose of this would be for people looking to team up to develop a game or 'advertise' for help with developing a particular part of their game.
For example, if you're is good at art but not very good at programming, you could post a request for an artist to join up with.
Or if (like me) you're a good programmer but are horribly tone deaf, you could ask if any musicians around would be willing to develop the sound track for the game.
A "Troubleshooting" category.
At the moment a lot of people are using the "Bugs & feature requests" category to ask questions about issues when setting up their Pokitto.
That's not what the category is supposed to be for, but people have been choosing it because there's no obvious place to troubleshoot issues with setting up their Pokittos. (I speak from experience.)
That's what the "Troubleshooting" category will solve - it will be a distinct place for people who are having hardware issues when setting up their Pokittos.
