Topics in the “ideas” category are intended to be a focused place for gathering ideas on a narrow topic. Generally speaking, they will be calling for opinions and ideas about the best way that Lucee should go about achieving some goal.
With that in mind, here are a few guidelines that you should consider before posting in such a topic:
Please try to:
- Provide distinct ideas. We want to hear from you and all ideas are welcome
- Further develop existing ideas where you have something to add
- Request more information from participants where you feel that they may have more to give, or where you do not understand what is being said
- Click on the heart button where you agree/like a particular input (rather than replying with “+1” or “I agree”, etc.). However, if you do not have sufficient discourse reputation in order to “heart” something, or you need to add support to a particular section of a post, please feel free to comment instead.
Please refrain from:
Providing a negative critique of ideas. e.g. “I don’t like idea X”, or “idea y sucks”; this includes critiquing your own ideas! It is important that problems with ideas be discussed, but this can happen later. Ideas with community support will lead to topics being created in the proposals category where a detailed critique can be had.
Repeat ideas that have already been made.
