I think helping the users in the issues section has been good for a while but at this point I think is seriously affecting the development. For a long while I’ve found myself spending way too much time answering (sometimes repeating) questions instead of spending that time improving the lib itself. There is still a lot for me to do here so I better focus on that.
I’ve seen other projects relying on StackOverflow and after a quick check I see that there is already some kind people answering questions over there:
I think that it’s best if we use both websites like this:
- feature requests (ex. “Could CanvasRenderer support Vertex Colors?”)
- bug reports (ex. “SkeletalAnimation is broken”)
- suggestions (ex. “Renaming .__dirty* to .*NeedsUpdate?”)
- help (ex. “How can I rotate an object using quaternions?”, “My object is not showing the textures”, …)
I understand that sometimes it’ll be hard to know what type of issue you’re having, but I think that would be the exception.
Of course, the IRC channel is also a good place for getting help.
