I thought that this was a community based forum. Perhaps not.
With the recent problems in WP Stats, I see post after post closed without any link to a live discussion.
When I finally got to a post that had some considerable dialog, I found that it too was closed, ending with "Open your own topics if you want, but at 180+ posts, no one can feasibly support anyone in this thread anymore". I actually chuckled aloud at that, as some forums I belong to for other technologies have thousands of posts on a single topic.
Clearly, this "open your own topic"is a catch-22. When we do, they are immediately closed out, with no clue as to which thread should be read.
So what forum is open for users in the WordPress community to help each other? If this is not it, then where?
