official TDF web-based support forums. I bet you'd find LibreOffice
users who would volunteer to moderate one or two topic categories. (I
raise my hand.)

The only thing I have to say is that a new forum is not needed. There are two long time forums already supporting LibO and a new LibO forum. The only thing that is needed/wanted is that the TDF/LibO support pages have links to them.



Ah, OK, i just searched for "libreoffice forum" and found http://en.libreofficeforum.org/. Uncategorized, and I believe forums with categories are better learning tools. Plus, even though I started from the "en." subdomain and selected English as my language on the home page, when I registered a new account the email instructions were:
Witam kazaragain,

Z pozdrowieniami,
Zespół LibreOfficeForum.org
http://en.libreofficeforum.org

And I found another couple of similarly completely uncategorized forums.

The forums at http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/ look much more promising, but are not these two products expected to diverge more and more? In my understanding LibreOffice is a new project that _started_ with OOo code but will be building separately. Or will changes made to LibreOffice be merged back into OOo? Obviously I am not a developer so I do not understand how these "branches" or "forks" work. I'm not asking to be educated here, that would be OT. Just saying that if LibreOffice is indeed a new product that will become less and less like OOo it ought to have its own "official" nice forum.

Meanwhile sure, the link to http://user.services.openoffice.org/en/forum/ should be added prominently on the help page of the libreoffice site. Since I am not any kind of expert or web developer and have little understanding of how OS projects work, it would be silly for me to ask to be on the web team just to make one edit. I hope someone more appropriate for web team membership does that soon.

thanks,

kazar
