Bug reports: meta.codidact.com or codidact.org?

+3

I have just observed a bug, and I'm not sure what the protocol is. Is bug reporting and tracking done on codidact.org, meta.codidact.com, or both? If both, and I can't find the bug mentioned on either, should I prefer to post it here or there?

(My personal preference would be to favour here, because although I have now created accounts on both there will be other users who haven't).

Why should this post be closed?

I think Meta.Codidact (or any Meta category) and GitHub are both fine. We have feeds on our development Discord server for both, so we won't miss anything important. The forum (forum.codidact.org) is probably not good for that kind of post. luap42 about 2 months ago

Please report bugs on Meta or GitHub, whichever you prefer. We monitor both. (The GitHub link points to the QPixel repository, the software we're currently running. When we switch to the C# implementation we'll need to come back and update this link. I'm saying this here in case we forgot and you're reading this three years from now thinking "what's QPixel?".)

The forum's focus is on the open-source project that produces the software and sites you see here on codidact.com. Forum discussions tend to be about broader or long-term issues, architecture, logistical/administrative issues like funding, and so on. If you're here to use Codidact sites, you can safely ignore the forum and bring your bug reports, requests, and suggestions here.

I'm assuming you mean forum.codidact.org, rather than just codidact.org? The former is a discussion forum; the latter is just a static site with nowhere that you could report anything.

If that's the case, bug reports come here, not to the forum. The forum is there for discussions about feature design and project trajectory; most of those have been concluded, so it's serving at the moment mostly as an archive. Bug reports come here to Meta (or to GitHub, but here is much easier for most people).
