Hey hi hello!
You might have noticed that we’ve been making quite a few posts recently (updates to our forum policies (link) as well as some fun community engagement initiatives (link)). We hope to keep improving the experience on the forums, and while our forums continue to grow in the number of topics and posts, we need to place a stronger emphasis in organization and categorization to help newer and returning members participate in the conversation.
One of the major changes that we’ll be implementing shortly will be retiring some categories.
문의 - originally meant to be a watercooler area for Korean creators, it hasn’t seen a whole lot of use, so we’ve decided to retire it.
Webtoon Live - we acquired a company called Webtoon Live years ago and this category was meant to give those readers and creators a place to chat and slowly integrate into the Tapas community.
Hot Topic and Cool Topic - I can’t really tell what the difference is between the two other than the fact that I used to shop at Hot Topic. So, we’ll retire both of these, bye!
Super Science Club - under utilized category, I honestly wish I had more time to dedicate to talking about all the cool data driven stuff at Tapas. Apologies.
While we’ll be retiring these categories, I also wanted to open up the floor to introducing some new categories. Both Misc and Uncategorized get a lot of usage every month, so we’re not covering a lot of the categories that people want to talk about.
What categories would you like to see in the forums and why?
