This is a short discussion regarding the "Topics" in slashcode.
As is stands now OldSlashdot has the following categories on the front page.
- Ask Slashdot
- Book Reviews
- perhaps we should add a Windows and OSX category as well or just call this Operating Systems. I'm a Linux user at home, but it seems one sided to have only a category for Linux. We should try to be unbiased when possible.
Is this the same format people would want on a new site? Expand the list, or focus more on fewer categories? Combine where possible (i.e. Storage and Cloud may fit in some larger category ??) Additions:
- Alternative Energy
- General Current events ?
- Digital Currency/Bitcoin? - is anybody really interested in Bitcoin as much as the /. editors seem to be?
- Seems to be a bit of a buzz around this. Just like someone above said, maybe these "subject of the day" things can be combined in to a single category. Things like Cryptocurrency, Cloud, etc.
- Making ?
