littleweseth Posted July 27, 2012 Share Posted July 27, 2012 [Posting this here because there doesn't seem to be a more appropriate subforum for it. Please move to more appropriate subforum if one exists.] As a long time user of Stack Overflow I'm a great fan of Stack Exchange type websites, especially over forum type websites. I've been trying to use the Technic Questions site but I've run into a few things: 1) I can't find the ask question button. When I went to the questions.technicpack.net website, I can see I'm signed on using my existing forum account, but I can't seem to perform any actions (commenting, or asking questions.) I have no comment or answer entry fields on existing questions, nor do I have an "ask" button in the top bar. I googled for a Question2Answer sandbox website and I can see that the url for "ask a question" should be questions.technicpack.net/ask. However trying to use this URL manually results in a "You don't have permission to perform this operation." Should I be able to ask questions when signed in using my forum-linked account? Is there a minimum rep limit to ask questions that I'm not aware of? 2) 95% of questions are about Technic Launcher troubleshooting and bug reports. Is this by design? Is Technic Questions intended as a place for these types of troubleshooting questions and bug reports (replacing or supplementing the bug subforums on forums.technicpack.net)? If so, is there a way of filtering them out from my view? Personally I have very little interest in reading or answering questions about the Technic Launcher or bugs - the N variations on "Java Error Please Help!" don't catch my fancy. I'd rather be asking, reading, and answering questions about gameplay, such as "How can I design a 2000 EU/t nuclear reactor using bucket CASUC?" If the Technic Questions website *is* intended for these kind of support questions, is there a way to segregate them away from questions about gameplay? 3) Is there a meta.questions.technicpack.net? Stack Overflow has a "meta" site for discussions about StackOverflow itself - is there an equivalent for questions.technicpack.net? The questions site is only a few days old, so hopefully we can all make it better. :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
