“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.

Hmm that is true in some cases, though I'm not too sure if people will actually read the descriptions  maybe they should pop up if you join a group for the first time? I like your idea, it could work :)

@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.

There must be a way to explain people that Metamath is about the questions from Pure Mathematics—not high school mathematics.

Indeed  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.

I think the previously asked questions describe the group itself.

Then why do you think that there are wrong questions asked in Discrete Math and Metamath?

@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”?

For once, I actually agree with something Parth has said. This is a good idea.

i 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?

Okay, so how about this? http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/5082f863e4b041b051b93160

The point of my suggestion is, when a user posts a wrong question in a group, we can always point him the group description. Right?

that was a spam....usually happens to all groups because a random student is desperate for help...

ParthKohliBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Yeah, 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...

fighting is never boring though

Of course, I already suggested this a while back.

Yup, 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.

Alternatively, they could permanently allow the same description to be mounted as the first open question.

ParthKohliBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Yes, 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.

And people could click on it and it would detail everything about what to do and not to do in a particular group

I make a ton of suggestions. About half of them get recognized.

Also, we do need this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/howtoanswer

Yes, 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.

That is a pretty good idea! Cheers!
