The IAPCT Board and the administrators of discourse.iapct.org have been reorganizing the architecture of our Discourse community forum. Please examine this proposed taxonomy of categories and subcategories and discuss it here before we implement it.
- Column A lists categories.
- Column B lists subcategories under each category.
- Column C indicates the current location of topics that will be relocated.
The new information architecture is designed to be easier to understand and use, and therefore more welcoming; to enable more productive and interconnected discussions with fewer heedless repetitions; and to support more orderly development of the field.
In addition to categories and subcategories, you should learn how to cross-associate your topics with related topics, using tags. By using tags we can keep the number of subcategories manageable. Tags are more ad hoc, and topic titles are the most ad hoc elements in the overall information architecture.
