@malin : at a recent workshop @emdupre, @effigies, and i had a chat about neurostars, and what we could do to enhance its presentation and outreach to different neuroscience communities, not just specific software developers in neuroimaging. some of this was motivated by the Jupyter discourse.
here are some thoughts that came out of the meeting.
- Make the categories page the default landing page. Also include a banner that describes this site:
# Welcome to the Neurostars Forum This is a place for the neuroscience community to interact with one another, share stories of their research, ask for help, and give help to others. **For more information** about this site, see [the “Welcome to Neurostars” post](CREATE_AND_ADD LINK). Otherwise, check out the channels below, we’re excited for you to join the conversation!
here is the jupyter welcome post: https://discourse.jupyter.org/t/welcome-to-the-jupyterhub-discourse-how-to-use-this-site/30
- Keep/Create a set of high level broad categories. what this should be is up for discussion, but here are a few that popped out
Neuro Questions(already exists): Change description to -->
This is a place to ask any and all questions about Neuroscience.
Announcements(already exists): keep description
Site feedback: keep description
Communities: This can contain introductory posts by various communities linking to their tags.
- Not discussed at the workshop, but I think having an INCF GSoC category is fine, but perhaps the INCF Tools could be done via tags?
Let’s discuss more
