I'm working on the group app at the moment and I'm looking for some input and feedback. The topics I have in mind are:
- at the moment, the hierarchy between groups is that of groups and subgroups. Or rather, groups and their parents. This is purely a relational thing - the groups don't share anything. This is basically a good idea, but I would like to remove the hierarchy from groups: it should be based on categories instead so there's no hierarchy between groups. My basic idea is something like www.dmoz.org - that is, having categories for themselves, and then being able to place groups in these categories as one sees fit.
2. featured groups:
- right now, there's no such thing. However, an option could be to have 'featured groups' that are displayed on the groups overview page. These would be interesting groups (in whatever sense of interesting we choose) and are thus teasers. As for choosing which groups are featured ... it could be anything from member-chosen to admin-chosen and in between.So, any and all feedback on these topics would be great :)
