yesterday we had the last meeting with our mentor @jonatoni for the Mozilla Open Leaders program. Here are her six feedbacks.
Here on the home page of the website:
There should be another button ‘Join us’ on the right of ‘Be a builder’ (maybe switched, join us on the left and be a builder on the right), so that we have to types of participation invites:
a soft one: join our community (pointing to the home forum page, or to the end of the introductions topic). Some people want to go directly to know members and topics of the community without reading further.
a strong one: help actively, building projects (pointing to https://humanetech.community/join/, as it is now). In this case, the title of the pointed page should be ‘Be a builder’ and not ‘Join our community’.
Social media channels repetition:
Remove the ‘Help reinforce…’ one. Also, remove the Join us here, because it would be in the button above (see first feedback).
From github to Documentation in the website:
now there’s a lot of documentation in the github repositories of HTC. We need to pour it to the Documentation section of the website. Noone that is not technical would go on github to search things, only to go to a particular resource that is already pointed by a link in the website (or in the forum).
Website icon in the forum header:
replace the left logo on the forum with something like
[ Forum ]
replace the globe with a new icon representing the website, like
[ HTC ]
remove all other icons (twitter - it’s now part of the social media channels in the website and github - too technical for most of the users, it would be linked from the be a builder page for active participation).
COC contact group (CG):
There must be a group of people responsible for addressing the issues raised by members about other members violating the CoC. This group (CG) has to be heterogeneous and diverse enough not to have the possibility that CG goes against the member raising the issue. A member can send complain to one of the CG, not to the whole CG, so that if the issue is about one of the CG him/herself violating the CoC, the other people in the CG team can fix the issue.
New short public introductions thread to replicate (maybe automatically - via widget) on the page ‘Our stories’ on the website.
Our stories aim: having a place where new members can feel themselves more in connection to the existing members of the community, in a way that they can find even naive similarities with some of them and experience some sort of shared feeling.
There should be a new topic, where we expressly say that any introduction made there will go to the website. So we can suggest to make them short and not to reply to any of them in that same topic. Then an automatic updater can be designed in the shape of a widget for the website page, where anyone can see the last members that have joined and decided to tell others their stories.
