Where should announcements go?


in the forums, not everything was a question. Sometimes people announce a new version of their plugin, sometimes people want to tell the community about a blog post they have written. Answers does not seem the appropriate place for this or does it? Maybe we should use specific tags for this?



PS: I came to this question because I wanted to show off my baby steps with speakeasy

Agree, grabbing the 'announcement' tag for this purposes seems a sensible step. Need to get some input for my JEMH UI also https://jemhui.brightidea.com/ideas

I'd go with that, although we'd need moderators to keep an eye on the tags and remove any "announcement" tags that shouldn't be there.

I don't know if answers has an 'accept rate', but it would be really bad for your accept rate, because there would not be an answer to accept.

For this example (announcing plugin updates, chages), I think this functionality should be built into PAC. That's where I go for plugin related information. If Atlassian could allow users to "Watch" a plugin for changes made by the developer (could be updates, documentation, compatibility revisions, etc), that would be most helpful.

I spoke with someone from Atlassian at Summit about this, and it was suggested to use the Atlassian Developer's Blog for announcements.

I'm honestly not sure what I think of either of those ideas: Dev Blog vs. and announcements tag here. Announcements tag seems closer to the old Forum approach, but doesn't really seem right for the style of this system. :/
