Would anyone be interested in doing a Housekeeping (Answering/Editing/Closing unanswered/low vote questions) or Activity pushing events in the next few weeks?
I figured with the start of the new year and the site being close to hitting all marks for the Beta.
There is information on what other sites have done previously.
Some ideas in my head:
- Career Focused questions
IE, Career paths, technologies and methodology based questions (Risks of being opinionated but I think it will be useful if properly moderated).
- Technology Based Questions
In particular, emerging technologies and how (if any) they can or will potentially impact our field. I created one regarding Machine Learning and it seems to be going over well.
- Documentation Focus
A focus on SQA based Documentation with links to canonical questions. This would include both our SQA FAQ and the SO Documentation. While I think this would potentially be useful for attracting new people to our sites from the documentation pages, it wouldn't be directly improving the site beyond our FAQ.
Currently we are at 85% answered. Hitting 90% will be difficult but if we all hop in a chat and start running through the unanswered list I think we could achieve this in a matter of a couple hours.
- Chat Awareness
Instead of just closing opinion based questions, push for them to be asked in the chat with a link to the chat. If we increase our chat activity and increase the amount of users in chat (which is usually none), I think it will greatly improve our overall metrics more than anything.
Any feedback is greatly appreciated. As time permits I will attempt to refine this and start posting details as Answers to be voted on.
Guidelines for answers:
Post an idea, with a generic date/timeframe. Upvoting an answer is essentially saying 'I would like to do this and would be available within the time frame'. Once we have a Winner we can get everything set in stone.
