After migrating from stackoverflow.com/tags/magento and the old community forum at magento.com, it seems that we are now left with two separate and capable forums for Magento support:

and http://community.magento.com/t5/Programming-Questions/bd-p/devqa

My questions are:
Which forum should be in primary use?
Is there any advantage of one forum over the other?
Are certain types of questions better suited on either forum?
Is there a different visitor persona on either forum or are they similar?
How about engagement levels?

Also if anyone could compile a list of awesome Magento support resources delineated by user experience and role that could be super helpful.

Magento community forums are also very focused on technical issues. See list of forum categories:

Magento Community Forum Cats

  • It's more for these kinds of 'soft' questions, ones that are related to forum policy etc. On the main forum we focus on technical questions Sep 8, 2015 at 17:31

For a list of resources check out https://github.com/aleron75/mageres by Alessandro Ronchi.

This forums primary focus is technical questions. All others are better off on the community.magento.com forum

  • It seems that the community.magento.com forums share a very similar focus on technical issues. See added screenshot.
