Ability to report problem with WordPress.org

Description (last modified by siobhan)

We need some kind of ability for users to report a problem in the WordPress.org. It's unclear what this should look like (form on every page that emails? form that's backed up by mods?).

[this ticket was formerly just about reporting problems on the code reference].

  • Resolution set to maybelater
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

There are a few considerations here:

  • Where should a link to this reporting form live? Footer? Our footer is pretty busy now and might require a redesign to add more to it.
  • Where should said link go? It could go to meta trac, but we might get a lot of support requests. Alternatively, it could go to a (new) forum where mods could correctly triage support requests and up-level actual website issues. Probably shouldn't go to an email address though.

Since we're not sure what to do here at the moment, closing this as maybelater.

Replying to samuelsidler:

Where should said link go? It could go to meta trac, but we might get a lot of support requests. Alternatively, it could go to a (new) forum where mods could correctly triage support requests and up-level actual website issues.

I think it should go to a separate page that describes the appropriate venues (including meta trac and support forums) for different types of requests.

We've done something similar on https://ru.wordpress.org/contact/ instead of a regular contact form (which was misused regularly for support requests).
