and had an idea for a discourse plugin: when a user inserts a link to e.g. google docs, the plugin would automatically present some information like:
You are referencing the webpage ABC. This can be considered problematic because of 123. These services are considered as an alternative: X, Y, Z . >click here< to change the link.
Of course this needs more serious considerations (there shouldnt be censorship; and who should “judge” the external references by which criteria? And who is to choose the alternatives? I guess there would be multiple valid solutions, but it sure would need some thought-love, which I don’t want to put in right now.
If the topic for the next prototypefund would match well and/or you (or somebody else) are able to find other funding, I offer my help in laying out some more groundwork, pitch an application and help with the implementation.
