Announcing Ticket Closures

Posted by Black Six , in BZPower Nov 22 2012 · 2,250 views

Recently with the new Tracker, I made some blog entries about some of the tickets that were resolved, to help get the word out. Now I know not everyone reads my blog and it seems clear that not everyone has quite gotten the hang of the Tracker or is aware of it yet, so I'm trying to figure out the best way to make people aware of tickets that have been closed.

I don't want to keep posting blog entries, because I feel like I have better things to post here, plus not everyone reads it. (But they should!)

I'm considering a topic in GD that would keep a running tally of things that are fixed and added. Maybe pinned, maybe not, but as tickets get closed, I'd make a post so people are aware and can comment or discuss it.

What do you guys think? Any better ideas?

Another option is to register a Twitter account and embed it in a topic or a rolling blog content block.

It'd be more efficient.

A weekly news post with that week's closures might be helpful.

Or a topic in GD would be cool.

The GD topic sounds like a good idea to me. And I think it would be best if it were pinned, assuming it is posted to begin with.

I think a pinned, open GD topic would be a good decision that would make it easier for larger numbers of people to hear about the recent changes and give feedback.

I feel like front page is the way to go.

I like this idea.

I believe some sort of widget on the front page would be best; be it a simple box filled with links to the recent closures, a twitter box, or whathaveyou. It'd let people see the progress being made whenever they see the latest news, which seems fitting.

More efficient ways to pin blogs (such as yours) like in the old days, so anybody who wants to keep abreast of these updates can do it on their own terms.

For every closed ticket, we all get to vote on which staff member has to do a silly stunt.

Paleo does the first stunt. =D

To be serious, though, GD topic or weekly news post sound good to me.

You should open a ticket for this. :P
