Hello everyone. Before I begin, yes, I know this has been requested before, however the request is old and contains outdated content.
I believe we need to add a new category to #help-and-feedback. All too often, users have questions about roblox studio features and tools. These users end up posting topics in #help-and-feedback:scripting-support, #help-and-feedback:building-support, and #help-and-feedback:game-design-support. This creates an unnecessary spamming of posts, and wastes the time of people who are trying to help others. Recently, I had a question about roblox studio features, but could not get the question solved as no such category existed. This would help everybody on the forum, as most of the time these studio questions which are in the wrong categories go unanswered. Also, this map help clear a small amount of the clutter in #development-discussion.
Adding this would also help newer developers. I remember opening studio for the first time, it was very confusing, and it took hours of learning to understand all the tools, and to this day I don’t know how to use some features. This would greatly improve the development experience as I could finally ask questions about certain tools. The DevHub docs are helpful, but sometimes you cannot find the answer, but also do not want to make a post in the incorrect
Side note: Due to the fact that I, along with other members do not have access to #lounge, we do not have a correct place to post these questions. I do NOT support opening up the lounge for members, just look at #development-discussion.
Example post for new category.
I had a quick question about studio that I would like answered. The other day I noticed that a new plugin appear at the top of my plugins bar. After some research, I found it was the align tool. Here is a picture of my plugin bar:
As you can see, my plugin bar is filled to the brim. Is there any way to disable these plugins? Thanks!
Yes, I actually have that question, please don’t answer it here, if you want to answer it via DMs.
TL;DR: There currently is not a place to get questions about studio answered, which creates spam posts in other categories.
