The EOSIO StackExchange is Live in Private Beta — Time to get the Q&A going!
Congratulations everyone, we did it! The EOS community has progressed the EOSIO StackExchange site to the Private Beta Phase. Not only are we one step closer to a permanent live community, we can all now start to use the site to build up Q&A content that will act as a helpful developer resource.
This is possibly the most important phase of the entire project and the community needs YOU now more than ever. It is during this “probationary” period that we will discover how active and useful the site will really be.
It is extremely important that everyone who can stay engaged asking and answering questions on a daily basis so that the site doesn’t get taken down and deleted. Just think of it as a continuation of Telegram Developers chat group, but more organized and easier to consume!
Block.one will also be assigning developer resources to watch the questions and jump in with answers wherever we can, so this will start to be an official community resource supported by the Block.one Developer Relations team.
It’s also crucial that you now start telling everyone you know in the EOS developer community to start migrating their conversations here so we can ensure continued growth. It’s good to have at least a 75% answer rate for questions posted so that the community stays open to developers of all skill levels. If you see a question and think you can answer it, please leave your thoughts. Others will jump in and clarify or supplement your answer if it’s not 100% complete, and the best answers will be voted up.
The EOSIO StackExchange site has two parts, each with its own URL:
https://eosio.stackexchange.com: This is where you ask questions, answer questions, tag questions, edit questions, and vote. The beta site starts off with a temporary design; its final design will be chosen when the beta period ends.
https://eosio.meta.stackexchange.com: We don’t want to talk about the site on the site itself, so each site has a meta discussion area to talk about things like what questions are appropriate, what tags to use, etc. The meta site is also accessible through the ‘meta’ link at the top of each page on the main site. This is where you can help make decisions about the site itself.
Help us keep the momentum going and start asking and answering questions. Every day, we have a lot of activity in the Developers Telegram chat, so if you see a question there, remind people that the EOSIO StackExchange site is now live and send them the link to sign up!
