Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2“Group description” Sometimes, I see people posting in the wrong groups and they don't know what the group is about. We, as a community, need userfacilitated group descriptions. What happens: If a person has a SmartScore of 60 or more, they may suggest a description for a group which is to be confirmed by an admin before it is seen on the home screen of that group in lighter letters with, say, 70% opacity. An alternative is that only the admins add group descriptions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@TranceNova Just like you lead people to the Code of Conduct, you could also show people the group description. I just saw a wrong question in Metamath.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2There must be a way to explain people that Metamath is about the questions from Pure Mathematics—not high school mathematics.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Indeed  well for now when I close a question I think I may start adding a description of the more abstract groups when I tell them.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think the previously asked questions describe the group itself.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Then why do you think that there are wrong questions asked in Discrete Math and Metamath?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@mathslover: Have you ever seen a site which has no code of conduct say that, “users who properly behave describe how the conduct should be”?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2For once, I actually agree with something Parth has said. This is a good idea.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i suppose this is beside the point...but when did you see a wrong question in DisMath? I just checked it and i don't see a wrong post there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The point of my suggestion is, when a user posts a wrong question in a group, we can always point him the group description. Right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that was a spam....usually happens to all groups because a random student is desperate for help...

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yeah, so like we point students to the code of conduct, we can always tell them that the question is not appropriate according to the group description which'd be legitimate instead of fighting with other users if the question is right or not...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Of course, I already suggested this a while back.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yup, and it was apparently ignored. I suggested that since the link to the code of conduct was hardly visible to the new users, that a description be placed above the window where students would go to post their question describing exactly what to do and what not to do in a particular group. Didn't receive any feedback unfortunately.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Alternatively, they could permanently allow the same description to be mounted as the first open question.

ParthKohli

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, while mine idea is similar, we both are concerned for the same. My idea is to provide an insight about what the group is. For example, Mathematics: the study of scientific patterns.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1And people could click on it and it would detail everything about what to do and not to do in a particular group

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, and a group description could provide a full detailing of precisely what the group is about along with what to do and what not to do.
