Should Photography & Video go through the Community Proposals system?

+7
−0

Unfortunately, activity on Photography & Video Codidact is very low. Outside of Meta, the community has attracted a total of 41 top-level posts across 4 different categories since being started in May 2020, and it doesn't look like this is set to increase at the moment.

We've recently spun up Community Proposals, a place to incubate new community proposals. With Proposals.CD, Q&A and articles can be posted the same way they would be on a live community. When a proposal reaches critical mass, it can be spun off onto its own community with the content all ready to go.

Photography & Video predates that system significantly. However, due to the low level of activity, does it make sense to step back a bit and send Photo "back" to the Proposals ground, in order to gain some traction before having its own full-fledged community? This would allow for the community to organically develop without having a "dead" community on our network, potentially scaring contributors off by its inactivity.

Is this is a good idea?

Yes, this is a good idea.

If you do that, seed the proposal with the new top level posts generated here from the Q&A category. Skip the other categories for now. Contests is cute, but there is nothing much worth saving that couldn't get re-created if people actually want it. It's debatable whether FAQ or Gear Recommendations should even be there at all. That's part of what the proposal phase should settle. There are also very few posts in those categories anyway.
