How to encourage participation in Architecture discussions

I meant to discuss this in person multiple times, but could not for one reason or another. So I’m starting this thread for it. :stuck_out_tongue:

How can we evangelize OEP-56, promote this group as a useful tool for people, and encourage the use of the Arch discussions in these forums? Please feel free to throw out suggestions–they don’t need to be fully baked proposals.

Thank you. :slight_smile:

One suggestion is a doc of tips for watching out for useful information/discussions. I admit that I don’t really know how to use Discuss well, and haven’t tried much with notifications. I just tried doing a full Watch on the “Arch discussions” link you provided, but I have no idea how that will pan out, and if people already have good recommendations for what and how to watch for relevant discussions.

The premise here being that the first step of participating in a conversation, is knowing that it is happening. The second step, actually participating, may require other solutions.
