This could be a good idea actually. There are examples already, but the PHP API has the user comments too and it's really something great when searching for specific problems (even with Google). This could attrack more people into using the library (*grin*). Of course, since there can be _many_ bad user comments, there should be a validation system. I would suggest that users should request a membership instead of just anyone posting, and post should be submitted for approval. (I would register in such system) As for the tutorial, readmap and such to help new comers to get involved and learn about the best practices and all, there's always the prototype irc channel on freenode, and the the other user group (spinoff), and the LinkedIn / Facebook groups... If one user wants to write his own learning tutorial, no one is keeping him to do so, but I don't think that this falls into the hands of the core development. > - Bring all of the various Prototype resources under a single roof: > forums, extensions, "plugins", scripty, UI, etc There is Prototype UI that needs support, they have their own website and IRC channel, and all.
