There is a question on meta.drupal.SE about "Community Promotion Ads - 2017".

Here is one of the answers over there (disclosure: it's mine), to recommend devops.SE for Questions related to "DevOps topic about Drupal". For those who want (and are able) to consider doing so, please help me "push" it over there.

To get an idea of the DevOps questions over there, have a look at these search results:

Hint: change '...:no' to '...:yes' is also interesting ...

Please reach out to whatever favorite SE site you have where there are similar promo ads, and post a similar answer of there (no credits due!).

Of course, if you're a Drupal.SE user also and like the idea, don't forget to help me reach the minimum voting balance of +6 (Kenorb, GoogleTorp, Adrian, where are you???).

  • In order to avoid such ads from being adversely regarded (as competing with / stealing audience from the respective sister sites) we could somehow present our site as a home for Q&As that would be DevOps-related but off-topic on those sites. Commented Mar 9, 2017 at 22:51
  • @DanCornilescu you mean a variation of this I assume.

  • Yes, that's exactly what I mean. I failed to see it :) Commented Mar 9, 2017 at 23:25
  • Hm, maybe my suggestion is not so good, judging by the comments on the swrecs ad... Commented Mar 9, 2017 at 23:36

Nice initiative! But IMHO we should wait with such ads until the private beta ends.

We're still missing the core of moderators while the rep levels for various privileges are artificially lowered, potentially making it difficult to moderate a higher level of traffic normally expected in a public beta stage. See Don't raise rep requirements to public beta until pro-tem moderators have been empowered

Side note: a while ago I also placed a few such ads for the Area51 proposal (which still indicate the private beta status). Maybe of interest would be how these ads were received by the different communities :)

  • Yes you may have "some" point, however there is also something like "keep the momentum" ...

  • @Pierre.Vriens OK, you're 1-2 votes away from moderator tools access. I'll help when I get there ;) Commented Mar 9, 2017 at 22:44
