Proposal: Craft CMS

Is that a bridge too far?

You can ask and answer the same questions. Here that you had there. Is ok for the same person to ask and answer a question.

    I'm good at asking redundant questions anyway, so for a brief period that might actually be a plus. – Matt Stein Jun 6 '14 at 14:10

Questions tend to get repeated on a pretty regular basis over on the G+ group. I've got no doubt that the vast majority of them will organically pop up over here soon enough. We also have plans to add a single place to search for questions across G+, SE, buildwithcraft.com, etc. as well.

I'm sure someone from the community will grab common questions from G+ and move them over to help migrate the data. I have a couple I plan on asking and answering right away.

I think the Google+ group has been fine for firefighting but I personally find it difficult to search through. Once you find a post asking the right question, you’ve then got to search through every comment to find the appropriate answer. It would be time consuming to sift through everything to find good questions with good answers.

What it has done is given the Craft community a chance to settle and to mature, so I reckon it’s time to start fresh. We’ve now got a chance to ask meaningful questions and to collate correct and concise answers. Like Brad said, the questions will organically build up over time.

That’s not to say we shouldn’t do an ask-and-answer double whammy. If someone's got a particularly useful question and answer, then that’ll be rad.

  • I was just gonna mention that. It will be a lot easier to find things here and avoid duplication to some extent. It will also be easier to read responses here. The G+ community has a different vibe as well. – Carlo Laitano Jun 9 '14 at 16:44

If you can find a better answer in the Google+ community, there is no reason why you can't link to it from your answer as a reference/source. "Migrating" the Google+ content doesn't seem like a worthwhile effort.
