Coming soon: proposing new topics from the topic selector, available to all

I'm excited to say that the team has been making great progress on the final culmination of the Proposed Topic System: updating the Topic Selector to allow proposing a new topic, directly from that interface. This would be available to all users, so that everyone who is asking questions and creating content on Experts Exchange has a way to help identify potential new topic areas for us.

proposing a new topic
It's finishing up in QA right now, so there's a good chance this could make it as early as next Monday (Nov 14th), although there's certainly a chance it could slip to the release on the 21st.

Anyway, I wanted to give you all the head's up!

Not sure what you mean about MS SQL Server 2005 & 2008 not existing as topic areas...

Ok.  They didn't show when I looked for them

Ok, cool. Able to find them now?

I'm also wondering if we might not be making it very easy to find the different topics available, so any insight you can provide on how the site might have led you astray would be appreciated. Feel free to message me if you'd like to discuss it outside of this thread!

Haven't looked but I searched for MS so they were probably further down the list.

MS SQL was the first topic shown and the other 2 weren't there so I assumed they had been "deleted"

You always need to be as specific as possible in the TA search, as it only auto-suggests a few, not all. That is often misleading.

That's a great point there... Thanks for mentioning it!
