I ran into some unexpected and slightly frustrating behavior while creating a topic just a moment ago on this forum.
I’m not sure if this is because I am a new user with limited abilities. If so, this can be deleted, or at least marked as solved.
I was seeking help in understanding the documentation for the Keyman Keyboard Language which is in the Keyman Developer section of the Keyman website. I clicked on the support button at the bottom of the page and was directed here.
But I was unable to create the topic with the appropriate metadata.
I attempted to change the category to Keyman Developer, but no such category exists and I was not allowed to create it. I also tried to add a tag (or two) but I ran into the same roadblock.
This first is a bit more understandable than the second. I can imagine that it might be unhelpful to have an unmanaged proliferation of categories; but tags should not be so limited and I can’t imagine any harm in allowing custom tags. What’s the point of even having tags if a user isn’t allowed to add/create tags appropriate to their circumstances. And if those tags already existed wouldn’t that be at least some indication that the issue might have already been discussed and resolved?
