This forum provides useful and publicly searchable information about the standalone (Omeka,org) version of Omeka, but not for the hosted Omeka.net version. This forum states: “If your question or issue relates to Omeka.net (if your site is located at yoursitename.omeka.net), please use the Omeka.net contact form instead.” This Omeka.net contact form does not provide access to a public discussion forum, but instead opens a private email message conversation.
My question is why users of Omeka.net are prevented from contributing to an online searchable forum of questions and answers, similar to this one. What is the purpose of preventing questions and answers about Omeka.net from being open and available to all?
While both the server-hosted .org and the .net versions of Omeka change over time and answers can become outdated, I am sure that a publicly searchable set of questions and discussions about Omeka.net would be useful and valued by Omeka.net users.
