The Forum will be read-only after September 1, 2011.
This is something that we cannot change.
I do admit that SO (stackoverflow) is great as a Q&A site for programming in the sense that you can get response quickly. However, for discussion or how-to-do-something stuff, SO is bad (in most cases, your topics will just get closed or voted down).
As a result, I have setup a forum. It is forum.fb-developers.info.
I do not intend to make this as a sole replacement for the existing forum (and I don’t think I can). Also, I do understand that may be just a few % (may be a few) of the existing members in the FB Dev Forum will go to a “3rd party forum”. But at least this would give people a chat to continue the existing discussion in the Facebook Dev Forum.
Anyway, let’s see how it works.
Thank you for your support and hope to see you there!
