I just posted about this on the APM dev list, but it would be great to get some participation in a drones.stackexchange site. For those not familar stackexchange/stackoverflow is a great web format for asking questions and getting answers. The person who asks the question marks the best answer (karma?) and (hopefully) a whole ecosystem of drone users helping other drone users develops. I think it has the potential to be possibly an even better way of doing many of the Q&A type posts here on diydrones.
I've just created a proposal to have a drones.stackexchange.com, and now is the point where stackexchange does an evaluation to see if there is enough interest to make the site. Can you please help?
The steps are easy:
- Go here and choose to follow this proposed group.
- Post a sample question of the sort you'd think a drones Q&A site could answer.
- Upvote the questions that you think are the best examples of the sort of Q&A a site like this could provide.
- (optional) Please pass the word on various other drone sites.
After we pass the hurdle of 50 followers/upvoted questions then the site will go live and we'll see how useful it is (or is not). I promise to promptly answer any andropilot questions ;-)
