kerrnel22: Could we not judge this from the Contributors to this page list at the bottom? It logs all usernames who participated. We could certainly consolidate that list into the page, but I think it serves the same purpose?

Forum/comments noise

Is anyone else concerned that that the forums (and comments feature) on doc.tw.o are being used by end-users to post questions and request help? I am afraid that the primary purpose of these doc pages are becoming clouded with things like this and this. If the purpose of doc.tw.o is to provide factual/complete/correct information, then IMHO these questions just add noise. If the forums are meant to be a way to discuss the doc pages themselves, not the actual feature then a note needs to be added to the edit page informing user that they should post their questions on the regular tw.o forums — not here.
