[Forum Revamp 5] Progress Update June 3, 2022

Hi Community Member! :wave:

Here are some of the things we’re currently working on to improve your experiences on our forum!

1. Archiving old, inactive topics

Only 2 days left for you to mark suitable replies as a solution :white_check_mark: (Deadline: Sunday, June 5th, 2022). And afterward, our team will be starting the archiving progress of old, inactive topics.

What happens next?

We have created a new “Archive” category of which we will gradually relocate all old, inactive topics into. Moving forward, we will also perform periodic clean-ups of said topics and move them here to ensure that you will always have access to the most up-to-date and relevant topics.

If in case we happen to archive your topics by mistake, or that you wish to keep them as they are, please contact one of our Moderators or Admins

2. More on tags

In an effort to promote the use of tags, we have updated the forum setting so that at least one tag has to be assigned for every new topic created (regardless of categories).

Additionally, for topics created under Community Discussion and its sub-categories, we have created a simple tagging scheme below which we encourage you to adopt for better topic organization.

Product name + Version (for Katalon Studio only) + AUT (application under testing) + Feature/Misc

E.g. katalon-studio + version-6.x + web-testing + chrome

And lastly, to help with topics’ searchability for both new and existing users, we are calling for all OP (original posters) to check whether your topics has already been assigned a tag and assign suitable tag(s) to them (if possible).

3. UI Changes

We have recently migrated to the Discourse team’s cloud host and are working with them on new UI elements, forum layouts, widgets, and more. We will share more information with you in the coming weeks.
