I was responding to mstrange but it was a question I had generally from anybody in the group. There have been a number of posts about this being a ScriptDebugger group. You’ve said your goal is to keep the Discourse group from becoming a general AppleScript site. You’ve also said you want the group to offer full support of Script Debugger. The goal in my previous post was to get a better sense of what is appropriate to post for this group.
With this goal in mind I just asked someone who had just posted about what the group should be about because I was very interested in anybody’s answer to the question what is ok to post.
It seems like to me one of the general posting rules is if I can’t find a connection to what I’m posting about and ScriptDebugger then it’s something I shouldn’t post. But I am less clear about AppleScript questions. I assume basic AppleScript questions are not something to ask in this group. But there was a discussion about using “it” in a tell block very recently and that is definitely an AppleScript question. I haven’t had an AS question I couldn’t figure out on my own in a very long time but what kind of a response should I make to a basic AS question? If a lot of basic questions are answered then it encourages even more basic questions. Should I not answer basic AS questions? Then there’s the question of how basic of a question is too basic.
But the thing I am most unsure about is something that is related to ScriptDebugger but is mostly about things that are outside the idea of supporting LNS products. Does the fact it’s related to LNS products make it ok or does the fact that the discussion would get into areas outside of LNS products means it shouldn’t be brought up. I’m not sure which one is more important.
This is the kind of things I was trying to get a sense of with my previous post.
