How are we liking the current Categories in this forum? I’m the creator/owner of them, but even I’m lacking confidence of their design and understanding of the category system.
I kinda think of a category as a “place”. What do other people think they are?
If it’s a place, it implies there’s a group of like-minded people there, like a group of experts of fans of a topic. If like that, we’d have a categories like “Type Theory”, “FRP”, “Web-DOM”, “App Design”, etc. The problem with this is that there would be a lot of topics to create. We could lazily create them, of course, so people would use the “Uncategorized” category if it doesn’t fit in an existing category, then we can create a new category when we see lots of similar topics of that same type.
Despite what a category should be, I feel like the following categories should be merged into a single one or just removed: “Help”, “Chat”, “Feedback”, “Chatroom Cross-posts”
