The purpose of this forum and mantis

Post by GunnarD »

It seems that the purpose of this forum and mantis must be clear for everybody.

Why should i post here instead of mantis (or on mantis instead of here)?

I see many answer here that just said "go to mantis and ..." or "that is not a TL problem, google or look in more specific forum about php/apache/iis ...."

Is it not better to try to answer question here so that people go here more often and have a more active role here, a forum is a perfect place to build up a FAQ around TL and testing.

Just my $.02 of opinion. :)

It is depend on your reply or question on what your searching or what your seeking.. posting issues in forums doesn't make sense or this is not the place as well, well the below link tells us exactly what it is for :)

We have spend to much time explaining how to use forum and mantis.
If people do not want to follow our guidelines is OK, for me => This just means that I will delete any post that seems to be an issue.

Ok, Bugs and Requests goes to Mantis.
Problem with Apache/IIS/PHP/MySQL/MSSQL/... goes to google.

So what is left for this forum?

The forums has to be used to:

ASK for things user, think other users can provide help like:
1. how to configure this or that => this is not an issue, but people not willing to read documentation.
2. check with other users before opening an issue.
3. share good and/or bad experiences.

Forum is not for asking for things that can be found using google like:
how i configure PHP to use LDAP => absolutely this forum is not the place

hope things are now clear.
Anyway we are not going to change our position regarding Mantis and forum
