Proposal: Tridion

What StackExchange sites might help those committed to the Tridion proposal reach the 200 reputation threshold to count towards the beta phase? I'm thinking especially for the possibly technical, but non-programmers in the group. I understand we need at least 100 with 200 reputation as well as 200 committed (see excellent explanation).

The Tridion Web content management software itself is set up by developers and consultants, but it is used and maintained by content authors, business groups, and IT operations; many of whom might not be inclined to answer, or even ask, a typical StackOverflow question.

Any recommendations on what to choose from the other StackExchange sites for these types of business and IT stakeholders? Personal experience with the other groups and feedback appreciated.

  • I admit being somewhat technical, but no where near having the same "code monkey status" as other Tridion programmers or consultants. For example, I'm slowly making my way to 100 on StackOverflow, but a few of my peers broke 1k in a few days. I might do better on the gaming site! Is the 100 users with 200 reputation from another StackExchange site clear? Feb 26, 2012 at 6:55

    Note though that relevance isn't really factored in at the moment - so yes, having 200+ rep on Gaming would be perfectly fine - the key thing is that you're "actively participating" in other Stack Exchange sites, so you know your way around the system and are more likely to participate in this one too.

  • I was able to break the 200+ rep on SO, and it does take "active participation." I felt I could have done the same on one of the other sites Rob answers with. I didn't realize you can gain considerable points by contributing which includes editing and asking useful questions. We're also encouraged to revisit and post answers to our own questions (so good Q&A pairs are valued as well). Mar 22, 2012 at 3:28

Think these are probably the most relevant.

  • I think this covers it; the breakdown to different parts of IT operations as well as development vs the web side definitely helps. Mar 3, 2012 at 19:46

    Just hit 200 rep on SE, which granted another 100 here and there for being connected. Things that helped are being allowed (encouraged even) to ask and answer your own questions as well as the 2 points for updating answers. It's not all technical. Mar 7, 2012 at 18:21

    There's also a site for Project Managers, which might be relevant to some too. Mar 21, 2012 at 11:06

I'm happy to add my weight to a Tridion site after a short time at Building Blocks (and a night in Mcr with Rob). There must be enough Tridion people to justify a site of its own - though I'm now considering whether an Umbraco StackExchange site might be a goer!

  • I agree on the justification of the Tridion proposal, and with regards to the Umbraco proposal, that has been proposed 8 months ago and needs ppl so it seems area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/40943/…

  • @JohnBax Yes, I'm already one of those Umbraco people - its never going to get any further by the look of it
