Ideas on how categories can be added
Long thought process dead ahead
We brainstorm Category ideas until he have at least 10 really good ideas.We would submit the 10 really good ideas to you each month.
We would revise those ideas on your opinion
When ready, we'd take a vote whether or not these ideas would be good. The voting polls would be:
• All ideas are great
• Most ideas are great
• Half the ideas are great
• 3 - 4 ideas are great
• 2 ideas are great
• 1 idea is great
• None are really too great
If we get at least 25-50 people to hit at least 50% of the votes on "all" or "most" ideas are great, then we could enter the voting stage (if it is lower, then we'd move back to revisions and brainstorming)
We'd enter the voting stage and make a poll with all of the 10 category ideas. We would have a week of the voting period, then the polls will close
Then the winning category idea would be turned into a new category, and the process would restart again
We would also have to check with Hopscotch Team, we might not get to do all ideas
The time it should take for a new category to be added should be around 1 - 2 months or so.
If we reach to a certain number of categories, we should have a vote on if a certain category is being unused.
This vote would determine if a category will be depreciated into the help with code, or better yet have a depreciated category, with depreciated sub-categories
(Is it possible to have categories within categories?)
Answer: Yeah, just remembered. There are the "Bugs in Player" and "Bugs in Editor" sub-categories.
The depreciated category should have sub-categories, so we can still have a basis of organization
