I guess my confusion comes from not understanding why it's preferable to have ANY extra barrier for new users (or any user) to participate in finding/creating solutions.
The community link you provided (thanks by the way, i didn't even know that existed.) is a great resource but in order to participate and add to that resource you are telling me to:
1) Leave the platform (the official xojo forum) to github
2)post my code there, i guess in a text file?
3)then contact Xojo to tell them about it,
4)Wait for them to add it (or not) to their community resource page?
That seems oddly difficult when compared to clicking into a Xojo forum channel and posting it there, wouldn't you agree?
As to your Google comment, of course Google indexes EVERYTHING and searching from their is, I agree, quite easy. I guess it was more my point that having a section devoted to this in the Forums, would
helo help keep the "Asking a question" VS "Providing a solution that I found" areas separate.
