Paul Johnson: There's something missing from Drupal.org

Planet Drupal - 13 October 2017 - 7:25am

Recently I've been thinking a lot about what is missing that could help the Drupal project achieve greater success. This was partly in preparation for the Drupal Strategy Summit but also a continuation of research I was already working on.

Many Drupal friendships a created in issue queues, over IRC, Twitter or in Google Hangouts and often across continents. I can think of many personal examples. Maybe you can too?. So it seems incongruous to me that Drupal.org has no community search feature. We are one of the world's biggest communities but no way to find one another.

There is a helpful Where is the Drupal Community?page but it lacks the ability to search of people like me, people having shared interests, shared motivations to contribute, people I can collaborate with.I feel like this is a massive missed opportunity to connect like minds, if such a tool existed new comers are far more likely to have a positive experience and find an outlet for their passion.

I have written a proposal in the Issue Queue for Drupal.org content. If you have thoughts around this feature request, I'd appreciate you joining the conversation.
