Hi Stuart,

The old Atlassian forums and email lists (forum subscriptions) were great IMO, but those have been canned for a while now.

Instead, you'll find users congregating somewhat at answers.atlassian.com, a system built with OSQA <http://www.osqa.net/>

As, as you probably know already, a lot of the Atlassian user interaction also happens within the comments attached to issues in JIRA (ie within the Atlaasian support/issues systems)

Customware seem to prefer GetSatisfaction.

Sean

Subject: Discussion forum for Confluence users?

Where do advanced Confluence users hang out to ask each other questions?

A colleague has developed a utility to convert Confluence XML storage format to wiki markup. This is to get around some limitations of Confluence's new rich-text editor.

He thinks it would be extremely useful to more technical types, such as in-house Confluence support people. Not so much actual end users, but people who configure Confluence at their site fix problems from end users. He wants to post an announcement to encourage Confluence gurus to try it out and give him feedback.

It's called Wikifier:

Sarah Maddox blogged about it:
