Hey, folks! Now that FlaskCon has come and gone (and congratulations to everybody involved for pulling off such a huge achievement in such a short span of time!), I’d like to take some time to focus on the state of this community. While I can’t commit to 24/7 moderation, I’d like to improve things here with some simple, common sense updates.
With that said, how can we improve r/Flask? Let’s discuss in this thread! I’ll get the ball rolling with some ideas I’ve had:
Probably the most obvious and necessary change we need to make. This subreddit tends to be inundated with technical questions (which are more than welcome), but that’s unfair to people who just want to see cool Flask projects, view recent news, and etc. Here are my ideas for flairs:
* Show And Tell (projects you’ve completed or are working on)
* News (new releases of Flask and related packages, vulnerabilities, stuff like that)
# **Community Rules**
All posts must be related to Python Flask.
Flairs are mandatory. Please choose the flair most suitable for your post.
## Help! My code isn’t working!
If you’re encountering an error or if your code won’t behave as expected, **include as much detail as possible**. This includes:
* Error messages (if applicable)
* Relevant code from your program ([**please** be nice and format your code!](https://www.reddit.com/wiki/markdown#wiki_code_blocks_and_inline_code))
* Context - where is the code running? What steps have you taken so far?
Do not force the kind citizens of r/Flask to make guesses. Help them help you.
## Showcase posts
Remember that others will be learning from your experience. Consider discussing what you learned, challenges you encountered, and best of all, the project source code.
Posting your personal project/tutorial multiple times, spamming post comments, or any other kind of repetitive self-promotion will result in a temporary ban. Repeat offenders will be banned permanently.
Everything above is merely a suggestion. I really want feedback from you guys before I implement any of this stuff, so if you have any suggestions for new flairs, if you think the rules need to be edited, if you have any other good ideas (_weekly threads? userbase surveys? community wiki?_), or if you're disgruntled and just want to insult me a little, sound off below!
