New forum categories about mobile platforms?

category “desktop” - but no “android” nor "ios"
there is the category “desktop” in the forum - but not “android” nor “ios”. are the some reasons for that? or is it just an error :slight_smile:

Do people here want an android or an iOS category? Any ideas how to use it?

I would be for tagging instead of full topics as platform specific feature proposals turned out to be not so specific in the past.

my point was just that i am wondering why there is a category for one platform but not for the others.

i agree that sometimes it is hard to categorize things in advance - and if someone says, “that would be nice for ios as well” and the discussion shifts to that, in theory, someone shoud adapt the tags etc. - so maybe the simplest thing is even to have no platform category at all.

i mean, android and ios topics were discussed here as well in the past, without having a category or a tag for it :slight_smile:

but i have no strong opinion in that, having dedicated categories/tags is also fine. maybe it works and is useful.

tags would be nicer than categories, yes.

So what about removing the Desktop category? We could apply the “desktop” tag to all posts and move them to “mutual aid” (or any other category, unfortunately they are half mutual aid, half feature requests).
