    No.
    AskUbuntu is one official help channel. Ubuntuforums is another.

    Re: http://askubuntu.com

    Ubuntu Forums is just that and that is why people can ask the same question again and again and we try to give help even if it means giving the same advice that we gave to someone else a day earlier.

    Askubuntu has different rules. You are not supposed to ask a question that has been already answered. And answers should be up to encyclopedia standard complete with illustrations. Pointing someone in the right direction (possibly) by posting a link to documentation is considered a sub-standard way of helping someone.

    I can see a point to a site such as Askubuntu. If it is used right but I just do not have the time, energy or knowledge to give a text book answer. So, Here I stay.

    Regards.

    It's probably because Ask Ubuntu is mentioned in the installation slideshow, whereas the Forum isn't.

    Blame the package maintainer. I don't feel like digging thru launchpad to find the reasons for not wanting to include the forums in the slideshow, but you can probably find it if you search for it.

    Yeah, that was a pretty big disappointment to me. We've been here putting in our time since the very first release, but it seems like we're treated like the redheaded stepchild. I don't mind if they showcase Ask Ubuntu, but they should put in a plug for us, too.
