Lost In Topics ... One Topic for Big Projects splitted in several parts



@twbadmin @anete @ambra @AnaC @Paulina

For Big Projects - splitted in several parts - it may be better to create only One Topic.

A single topic - for a big project splitted in several parts - has several advantages:

  • Project Overview
  • Collaboration among volunteers
  • Terminology Help and/or suggestion
  • and more

Just a suggestion … after seeing a big Spanish project - splitted in at least 25 parts (ok) and 25 topics (sic):

Hi @Cristina. thank you for your suggestion and please forgive us for our late reply.
Kató Community project threads are generated automatically by our system, so when we have a big document split as different projects we will have several Kató Community threads. Unfortunately we are not able to edit system generated threads and, therefore, we can not delete all the threads you are mentioning to create only one common thread.


Hi @AnaC, many thanks for your reply.

Just a suggestion:
Even if you are not able to edit System Generated Threads – and without delating any Thread -
for Big Projects (splitted in several parts) - it may be possible to create One Topic, like the one above, linked to all related System Generated Threads.

With several advantages:

  • Project Overview
  • Collaboration among volunteers
  • Terminology Help
  • Suggestions, Comments
  • and more


@Cristina, I absolutely understand your point and can see all the advantages in having only one Kató Community thread for the same document. But creating that thread, at the moment, would imply to manually post the link to the new common thread on all system generated threads (15 times in this case). We have dozens of projects being created everyday, unfortunately we don’t have the capacity to manualy create common threads to all of them and would prefer to not open exceptions. We are definitely trying to find a permanent solution to this issue, as we know it would facilitate our translators work. I’ll let you know as soon as we have an update on this. Hope you understand. :slightly_smiling_face:


Hi @AnaC, many thanks again for your kind reply.
Please don’t worry… Mine was only a suggestion and only for really Big Projects :wink:


Thank you for your suggestion, @Cristina! We really appreciate having your input :slight_smile:


Thanks again @AnaC and @ambra for your kind attention to this topic :slightly_smiling_face:.
