Howdy there fellow developers and/or people who are passing by!
I noticed while browsing through the games earlier that some tags/games are named weirdly, such as random capitals, for example, I saw
GUild Wars 2 earlier. I did notice that the
/admin scope does have access to modify tags and categories but not subcategories. After speaking with some of the GCT members earlier I thought it would be nice for them to have access to modify tags and subcategories.
Tags page on the GCT dashboard that loosely mimics the one currently available on the admin scope. This would be paginated with potentially a search box(if I can finally grasp how to get one to work). GCT members would be able to modify tags, which would include their name and slug or delete a tag outright (if someone makes a tag that is deemed inappropriate).
Subcategories page on the GCT dashboard that would follow a similar design to the above-mentioned tags page. In addition to being able to edit the name and such, they would also be able to specify a link to an image to be displayed on the subcategories’ page. This would allow for our team to also add new games to the gaming category entirely without needing to do it from their channel page(albeit this isn’t a big hassle since it takes the same number of steps, if not less).
Why I believe these would be good:
Our GCT is not only a moderation team but the forefront of our community. We should be empowering them with tools that will allow them to not only moderate easier but also make the community a better space. While odd-looking tags don’t directly hurt anyone, I feel having the ability to modify tags will allow, for lack of a better term, a more professional feel to our system.
I’d love any feedback and thoughts on this. I don’t think they need access to the main categories since those will rarely need changing and could be done by Glimesh Staff themselves.
