I like the gist of what you're saying here. Something we're always struggling with is how to make the Tableau Community more browse-able. In other words, how are we providing easy ways for people to see the awesome nuggets of really good responses, blog posts, documents, etc. In your case I know you've done some really awesome work on the Geo-spatial front and I'm guessing it's frustrating not having a spot where you could keep that information preserved.
I think the Calculation Reference Library will probably stay as-is since we want a singular place where living documents can exist specifically centered on calculation syntax etc.
Maybe the solution is expanding the types of content that the Forums lets you create. If you were able to create documents similar to what is created in the Forums and then tag/categorize them the same way you would as Forum question, do you think that would address the issue?
Edit: Moved this discussion along with Shawn's Idea to Community Canvas since it's a site change recommendation.
I don't think this is a battle to be won or lost, just an evolving idea. What do you think about my thought to include other types of content in the forum itself?
Alex - I like that idea a lot. Especially now that TCRL is gaining a traction. Let me check on some with Tracy Rodgers about that. I've listed it in the Ideas section of Community Canvas.
Alex - So it looks like Tracy is one step ahead of us yet again.
She added it to the bottom of the Communities list on the following pages:
The place it's not showing up is the search (content) page of the forums you took a screenshot from. We'll look into adding it there.
