The revitalization of Ask.replit.com within Replit.com is a strategic step to tackle the issue of discoverability. Countless users remain unaware of its existence due to its previous separation from the main platform. By seamlessly integrating it back into the Replit.com interface, we can ensure easy accessibility and prominent visibility, leading to a surge in user engagement and utilization. This heightened discoverability will naturally encourage more users to actively participate in the community, readily share their expertise, and seek assistance when needed, thus enhancing the overall experience for everyone involved. Additionally, the relocation of Ask.replit.com to a more visible position, away from the bottom of the screen as depicted in the image, will streamline the user experience, providing greater convenience in navigating and utilizing the diverse array of available resources. Ultimately, this move is set to foster a stronger, more vibrant, and engaged community within Replit.com. - Oh yeah I made chatgpt do all the content writting
would be nice if:
It is actually in the replit.com interface, it’s just very hidden and unnoticeable on the bottom-left.
But it would be great if it was put exactly like you have shown it.
thanks, I will change the orignal qustion
I don’t think it needs to be part of replit.com, but it could be turned into a bigger link with a flashy tag that says “NEW”. That will increase discoverability, but then yet also maybe bring trolls from Replit over here making moderation more difficult.
Edit: here’s a sketch of how it could look
Hey, thanks for this feedback! Can you tell me more about how you discovered Ask? Was it from the sidebar, our support flow, or somewhere else?
@LenaAtReplit I discovered Ask because I was clicking the things at the bottom of Ask’s bar at the bottom and I just stumbled upon it and stuck with it.
Thanks for sharing!
Can you clarify where you mean by this?
P.S. Glad you found us
@LenaAtReplit this bar, sorry I wasn’t specific enough:
discovered ask.replit.com through the message I received after migrating to Nix.
I didn’t even know this page existed prior to this. Furthermore, I had never noticed that there was indeed a tiny URL pointing to ask.replit.com on the main page until @SnakeByte pointed it out. Neither did I notice any other URLs, such as docs.replit.com. It would be great if they could be made more visible, as shown by @boston2029, just like when https://replit.com/talk/ask/ used to be the main page for questions and answers.
thank you for the illustration. I will include it in my original post. Regarding trolls, back in the day when it used to be a part of the main page, https://replit.com/talk/ask/, I don’t recall there being many trolls. In fact, the community was very supportive. I don’t believe it’s any different today.
I would have added your illustration, but I am unable to find the option to edit the post. My apologies.
Thanks for sharing, everyone! I’ll bring it up with the team and see what others think. While I don’t think a sidebar change is in the cards, I think we can get creative about how we surface this forum for users when they need help!
