About the MDN category


(Janet Swisher) #1

The MDN category is for discussing topics related to the MDN site. If you want to be involved in making MDN more awesome, please share your ideas, opinions, questions, etc.

Topics that belong in this category include:

  • Planning and coordinating changes to the site
  • Creating, translating, and maintaining the content of the site
  • Developing the underlying Kuma platform
  • Developing other software and data that support MDN Web Docs, such as Kumascript macros, and browser compatibility data (BCD).
  • Note that questions related to the Learning Area tutorials (or learning web development generally), should go in the MDN/Learn subcategory

If a topic is about the content or functionality of the MDN site, it belongs here.

Some topic areas that probably don’t belong here:

  • Trouble-shooting about web development that isn’t tied to specific content on MDN. You may be able to get better help by posting on StackOverflow, which is designed for answering such questions.
  • Bug reports or questions about Firefox, Firefox Development Tools, or Firefox Add-ons or Web Extensions (unless they’re related to specific articles on MDN)
  • General comments about Mozilla, not related to MDN

We’ll try to redirect such topics to other forums where they can be more appropriately addressed, but we might not do so in a timely manner, as members here are focused on making MDN as awesome as possible.

Note that by default, this view includes posts in the MDN/Learn subcategory; if you’d rather not see those posts here, change the subcategory selection (second-menu-from-the-left in the top nav menu) to “none” instead of “all”.

Hi there,
I have recently started to do documentation review on this site. I believe the site could make it much simpler to help new user that would like to do editorial reviews. The reason for this is because as when I started, it was difficult for me to find pages that would need editorial reviews and I believe there should be a system where pages that would actually need the documentation to be done can be separate from the ones that do not need any reviews.
