I’d like for everyone to have access to the content of categories like #projects:online-forum because of our value of #build-in-public. The online forum team can still have private conversations via our group direct messages, so that’s preserved!
At the same time, the online forum content will be interesting only to a small subset of people, and I don’t want them overwhelmed.
Set Default Mute (which means users won’t see these posts on “Latest” or in their digest emails.
Adjust for specific categories that shouldn’t be muted:
Have new members in the onboarding process adjust their notifications for the circles they join
Write an explanation that posts are muted for people to discover on their own how to change notifications for categories.
