Harvesting UX Data

Postby RGB » Tue Jun 26, 2012 12:35 pm

Kevin Grignon started a page on the project wiki to gather user experience (UX) feedback from different sources and that of course include a section for the forums.

IMO, this is just a first step to help close the gap between users and developers. Someone interested on helping? Discussing changes and adding links to those discussions is a good step forward.

+1.
Good idea. What is expected? To tell users who ask for such improvements in the forum to create a wiki account and file it themselves (poor success I fear) or that they PM a Volunteer (agreeing in this topic such role) who will do the wiki part?

I think it is up to us to agree on a method.

One possible way is to open a dedicated subforum (here at "Site Feedback", maybe?), to discuss suggestions, maybe bug reports and other ideas, and if a thread goes well then report it.

We did a small experiment on the ES forums that I think was quite successful (a couple of bug reports, tons of translation fixes and a small feature request)... but we are a small group, here maybe we have the "critical mass" to start this with more strength and continuity.

I think we should even open a forum in Community in parallel with General Discussion and Site Feedback to avoid making it a sub-forum (too much hidden).
That could be an entry point for people wanting to participate more directly to the improvement of the project.

I agree - open a dedicated Forum and as feasible proposals arise (not "blue sky" proposals") and crystalise, we can raise a bug or post them to the mailing lists.

It seems we have a plan... :mrgreen:

Is there any facility in phpBB, natively or via an extension, for tagging a post?

Having something like that, especially if we can search for it, would be idea. Then we could tag posts as "feature idea", "FAQ candidate", "possible volunteer", etc.

AFAIK, not native but there are several MODs that provide the functionality. I do not have the technical background to know which one is the best one, though.

A phpBB based forum with a working tag system is the KDE Community Forum.

(BTW, they have a button to tag threads as solved... that would be nice...)

As a starter, we could add some tags at the beginning of the topic title like: [RFE], [FAQ], ...

Have created the new forum, moved this topic inside and made it a sticky as an explanation of this forum. If someone spots an existing topic worth moving here, just report it.
