Discussions and Feedback about the Tagtool.org community forum.

This is a place is for those who want to go beyond merely reading and posting, to work toward improving our community together. Meta is a place for debate and evaluating direction.

It is also community memory, documenting the history of your community and its culture. There’s a story behind every evolution in rules or tone, and these shared stories bind communities together. Meta is the home for all the tiny details that make your community unique: its terminology, its acronyms, its slang.

  • What kinds of Site Feedback topics can I post?
  • Which topics should we allow and encourage? Which topics should we explicitly discourage?

  • What are our standards for community behavior, beyond what is defined in the FAQs?
  • How can we welcome new members of our community and encourage them?
  • Are we setting a good example for the kinds of discussions we want in our community?
  • What problems and challenges does our community face, and what can we do about it?
  • How should we moderate our community, and who should the moderators be? When should we flag posts?
  • How do we publicize and grow our community?
  • How should (or why did) the rules change?
