Refining the OER Tag : Remove OER tag option from Creation Process
I have been noticing a lot of people adding the OER tag to new, empty sites and then leaving the sites blank or private and not building them out. This is flooding the directory with "oer tagged site that are empty, and some are even private.
I think the OER tag would function best if it can only be toggled in the site settings, and if possible - only available on public sites. This way, users have to create the site (and presumably add content) before visiting the settings to toggle the tag.
I think adding the tag option in the creation process before sites have content is not the best application of the feature, admittedly an oversight of mine and not thinking through when the best moment might be for adding this tag.
I also think we want to think through refining this tag a bit more in conjunction with refining the creative commons licensing tools in use across the commons, which I will write up in another ticket.
