I know there are tons of model-specific communities and such already out there, but what do people think about some model- or class-specific communities within this forum? Maybe something like “Microcomputers”, “Minicomputers”, and “Mainframes”, or even “8080”, “6800”, “PDP-11”, or things like that?
I feel like the categories weren’t used much on G+, but I think that’s more a function of the platform than the value of categories. Perhaps the more visible categories of Discourse would change that.
Of course, it might be best to let those categories grow organically, and not just populate a random set up front. But I feel like on G+ there were a lot of 8080 and Z80 posts, homebrew and replica posts, minicomputers (particularly PDPs), etc. that are likely to show up here, as well.
Edited to say: I don’t want to make a bunch of work for @EdS, though, either!
