For the past two years, we’ve run a special community forum at https://platform.github.community. This forum was designed to elicit feedback on newer API releases, specifically the GraphQL API and GitHub Apps, and it gave our ecosystem engineers direct access to your technical questions and feedback. As expected, your questions and needs have expanded as GraphQL and GitHub Apps have matured.
So today we're excited to announce that we are merging the GitHub Platform Forum into the GitHub Community Forum and expanding the focus to include all Platform features beyond the GraphQL API and GitHub Apps.
Why? We want everyone to benefit from each other's questions, workflows, and experiences with our Platform. We're confident this new forum's expanded focus and centralized location will help us and our growing community address issues quickly and efficiently. This forum is a place where you can ask technical questions about any aspect of the GitHub Platform, share your projects and ideas, and suggest new features and directions for the future.
As a contributor to the old GitHub Platform Forum, what does this mean for you? Mostly, it means learning a new URL. Your account will carry over. However, for now we will not port over existing content. We will lock the Platform Forum to read-only mode, so you can still read existing content for now but will not be able to post there.
We hope you’ll join us and all the other developers hanging out at the new GitHub API Development and Support Forum. If you have any questions, please let us know on the forum!
