What do you think of Ableton Answers (this page)?

I think it's ok, but only 'ok', for a number of reasons, here are a few...

  • All topics are lumped together making Answers a big haystack to search.
  • The comments/answers division is somewhat obscure, it's hard to notice comments that might be more helpful than some answers.
  • Years old questions can be catapulted to the top with a recent comment/answer, should questions have a shelf life?
  • Is there a visible tag cloud?

 

Does it work for you?

Should I move this question to the Ableton Forum or centercode (both also a bit of a mess)?

    Here's another reason...

    Comments keep ancient posts afloat like this one (https://www.ableton.com/answers/linux) but where the hectrum is the comment?

    It's buried in the 73 "answers" currently not answering the question, and it keeps popping up to the top.

    And that's exactly why I put this in the "Answer" bit and not the "Comment" bit.

    Come on, really..?

    I like the layout of the page. But not sure how is it different from the Forums?

    How about tags? So search is easier and more useful. At the moment when you search you're at the mercy of how the posterrrrz wurdz r spelt...

    Say some preset common tags from the Ableton preferences/common features, with some exceptions. Not lots of tags, just should be enough to define your post.

    I like the idea of comments and answers being split/different, but unless this page is moderated there's no point.
