A few humble ideas

Hi,

As others I’ve gone through a couple of courses. To me most of the lectures are 9/10 or above. So thanks.

Some observations I came up by looking at forum dynamics:

  • Many users participate answering (apart from instructors)
  • Many questions appear again, and again.
  • A few pinned topics seem irrelevant and no one reads it.

And suggest:

  • Is it possible to create a newcomers’ troubleshooting guide for the most common problems?

It would improve the experience both of course-users and the ones answering. I’d pin it in the forum too.

I wouldn’t mind to help creating it for solving: uri string problems, IP whitelist, where is the IDE, etc. Probably others are willing to participate.

The same UX improvements would occur if

  • Welcome to Discourse topic is removed
    I bet 90% know how the thing goes
  • Remove 3 attempts for homework questions
    As there are next to none users from the time this was implemented
  • Remove potential answers (…)
    again this is common on most forums, and ppl that dont respect it won’t neither read the topic.

Hope this won’t harm anyone :slight_smile:
