We have the discussion and questions part in some parts of the site, usually at the bottom of community portals. So far, there is no notification when people post a message there or there is no entry in the forum (I'm not sure it is linked), when people post there on a city unrelated site, it seems. I've realised this, after seeing Aris' post by chance on the data hub, see screenshot.
I don't know if this part needs to be fixed somehow or properly linked or removed from those pages altogether. (Also what is entered there on the section of the Data Hub also shows up on the CityLoops site, which isn't ideal.)

Not sure what needs to be done, but happy to help think it through. (I've added chat in the task name, because we also referred to it like that in the text above the section.

Discussion and updates

New task was created

Thanks Carolin. Yeah this has been on my radar for a bit. I think we must simply have a notification system that will notify those interested in any new movement on the site, but that filters out some of the autobot and other stuff, so that you really only get notified of relevant updates. I'll try to sit down for this in the coming weeks.

Task was assigned to Paul Hoekman

Thanks Paul! Let me know if you need help with this.

I am stepping down from my MoC roles so unassigning myself from this. I think it could be a very useful tool to have this, if there is the capacity in the team to generate content/updates and to manage volunteers. In any case, up to the team to decide what direction to take there.

Paul Hoekman is no longer responsible for this task
