Where to report bugs

Hi Pav - out of respect for your dislike of stickies, I moved this into the FAQ, so you can delete this thread!

What about a sticky thread in each forum dedicated to bug reports? Would that work better?

Then you'd have each bug in the same thread, which can make reports harder to track down.

People tend to report bugs in the thread announcing/describing the version they're playing (May 22nd nightly, or whatever), but I think it would be more helpful if each bug had its own thread. Then it would be easier to see if it had been reported already.

Since development is so active and bugs are so common, why not just a Forum Sub-Heading for Vanilla Bugs, then each bug can indeed have it's own thread (and you wouldn't have to rely on the 'forum search' to find it cause it probably wouldn't get buried very deep), Pav permitting.

Well if we can do sub-fora, let's just have one for each version! Then you'd report it in the Vanilla/3.3.0 subforum, or whatever, and it would all be very neat indeed. The top-level Vanilla forum for feature discussion, and the sub-fora for bugs. (And the AAR forum for AARs, of course.)

How about a sticky topic in Development and Vanilla detailing the requested procedure for posting bug reports in each forum. Such as:
  • Development is for bugs in nightlies, Vanilla is for bugs in releases.
  • Come up with a list of tags similar to the one used in the issue tracker that are requested to be put on a bug report to make tracking and searching easier.
  • Teach newbies how to search the topics and use the aforementioned tags to see if a bug has been reported before before posting a new report.
  • Give guidance for when to use the issue tracker and when to post to the forums to report issues.
  • Anything else anyone can think of?

Max, one observation: don't bother coming up with complex rules like these. Regular people will just not bother following them.

I guess we could hope we have lots of irregular people here?
