Why Community Matters
Initially discussion about Influx-y things was confined to github issues and google groups threads. We spread out and colonized a Gopher Slack channel (#influxdb) last year, but our community has long lacked a place to ask and answer usage questions or talk about cool ideas for the whole stack.
From today we will begin routing any technical questions on usage, code samples, how to, and general questions to the forum. Our technical team at InfluxData will do their best to try to answer questions, but this is a real community site, and we want anyone to ask and respond to questions. If you want to ask a question just click the sign-in button at the top of the page (we support both Google and Github OAuth) and start a topic!
My username on the forum is pauldix. I'll see you there!
Note: Developers who want to contribute code will still happen on GitHub, same as today, but it will be focused solely on contributors.
