The move simplifies the number of channels the team has to maintain. More details in the announcement retrospective.
hey @waylonwalker !
does this mean that all questions should be addressed on Github discussions or Discord now? Should we expect discourse to be shut down at some point? I understand the decision to move, but I feel like there is already a lot of knowledge on discord and this would mean that in the future, we would need to look up answers on discourse, discord, discussions and to a smaller extent stackoverflow.
Hi @ljam! We see you made it to Discord and we’re glad for that. Yes, we expect Discourse to be shut down over time and the two (and only) channels that will remain are GitHub Discussions and Discord.
We have moved away from StackOverflow because we discovered that some of our users were wary of asking questions there.
