  • I guess the question I ask is, what problem does it solve?

    We have rt for bugs, cpanratings for ratings, annocpan for notes, and the larger modules have their own community.

    So what is cpanforum solve exactly.

    • Perhaps it's like a standing or open invitation directed at anyone and everyone. For you, as a user of this particular module, we offer here the opportunity to develop a community, whether you want to or not.

      So, yes it is a 'solution looking for a problem'. But perhaps that solution, ie 'the solution looking for a problem,' is not the right solution.

      What is the solution? What is the solution? What is the problem?

      Perhaps YAGNI is a problem? Or is YAGNI NOT a problem?

      The offer of space for a community does not mean a community will develop.

      It would be interesting to find out if communities have developed there, or if it is helping in other ways. I guess that would mean searching through the archive of messages.

      One problem is authors who are absent, or who don't see themselves as a help desk for helpless coders.

      That is I guess the problem is helpless coders.
