Suggestion about Discussion List

Sometimes I see questions related to developers's topic posted in users's topic, and vice-versa.

A mix of contents can be found in the 3 discussions topics.

Wouldn't be better if these topics would be merged in just one?

The Discussions tab has been changed so that the topics aren't as prominent.

Cool. And I also liked those inital 'hints'.

Interesting that you noticed this issue of the "topics" since we were just discussing that topic earlier this week. I've removed the topics altogether since they don't seem to add a lot at this stage. Maybe we could add some more general topics that posters could use to tag their post such as "user controls" "data management" etc. But for now, I think we'll continue topic-less... - Dan

I fully agree with you Dan.

One of the things I like best in 'MapWindow's philosophy' is that a developer is a user, and a user is encouraged to be a developer (eg plug-ins).

All topics could be relevant to both.
