So when a user asks a question, they get a
helpful sidebar that looks like this:
The things that are linked are:
It can be edited by devs only :(
you should put that information in the sidebar next to the question - would probably be better than putting it in the help center. I don't visit the help center before I ask a question.
Now while we could get on our high horses and tell users to RTFM, we know they don't, which is why we have all sorts of systems in place to nudge people in the right direction.
It may be a good idea for us to revisit this sidebar, and perhaps request the devs to take a second look at letting us lowly individual communities edit the sidebar to make the user experience better. This may save us a lot of headaches in the long run.
- Do we want to be able to edit the sidebar?
- If so, what the heck should be in there?
