Hi @Elena_Kosourova , glad to see you taking on the Community Manager role, your sustained passion is inspiring.
I would like to check what’s the status of Dataquest Direct?
When I tried to submit on 31 Dec, I realized the “New Topic” button was greyed out and thus can’t be clicked.
Then I saw a post mentioning that Dataquest Direct has a new home on Medium, I wrote an article on medium and submitted a form to dataquest so it will appear in the dropdown when i try to “Add to Publication”, but there was no reply.
Now I see that “New Topic” can be clicked again.
Can I conclude that the medium idea is scrapped and we should be writing back here using “New Topic” for Dataquest Direct?

Hi @hanqi, thank you! :star_struck:

About Dataquest Direct, indeed, I was going to make an announcement today that there was a technical bug with the “New Topic” button, but now it has been resolved. So go ahead and submit your article. As for relocating to Medium, for now, it has been postponed, so the only way to submit an article to Dataquest Direct is through the “New Topic” button.

Here are the Community Champions for this week: :tada:

Woah! I did not expect my first project to get that kind of attention. Thank you @Elena_Kosourova for the wonderful feedback! I did not think I was going to be the kind of user that actually submitted projects to the community. But now I’m really glad I did! Keep up the great work, everybody!
