What features should we add to this site?

asked 2010-08-19 02:18:20 +0200

As a companion to the "what's broken" question, what features should we add here?

As a start, it would be nice if there was some mechanism for auto-linking trac ticket numbers. Other auto-link ideas:

Auto-linking of links would be convenient. (That is, if I type "http://www.sagemath.org" then it should show up automatically as a link.) Also, is there a way of linking searches on this site to sage-support so results would show from both? That would reduce the number of duplicate questions.

FAQ: Disambiguation;-) We are not a CRM support group: http://ask.sage.co.uk

This is really minor, but it would be convenient if the subscriptions email headers had a "from" entry to make email filtering a bit easier.

I totally agree!

Sorry for ignoring this. What email address can be used? Is there some official "from" email in the sagemath project?

I don't know of any official address; something like "Ask Sage <noreply@sagemath.org>" would probably suit our needs best; at least until someone else has a better idea

A protocol for including a question and answer by the same person.

This site is a much better reference than the sage-support group. The questions are edited and refined and misguided answers move down the list (but remain there, just in case), and the search works (take that, google). So how about this becomes the place to share some tips with other users? But should we expose all the tip in the question or split it in two parts? And what should be done with the karma?

I think this would be nice too. As a similar example, the maple support site http://www.mapleprimes.com/ has both questions and "posts" for this purpose. Since it may be a while before posts are implemented here, I would suggest asking a question for which your tip is the answer, then adding the answer yourself.

Thanks, I will investigate how the mapleprimes site works.
