You can create questions and discussion in Answers, how to choose?
Questions are typically for right/wrong format so people can get a quick guide on what could work. We work under the assumption that members are struggling with a malfunctioning environment, so we try to help peers find their questions and answer them as soon as possible. Furthermore, to help people answer more questions, we mark those answered fast to bring the unanswered forward.
Discussions in the other hand can remain open and are not intended to be right or wrong but rather, to your point, an exchange of opinions.
When in doubt, we suggest choosing a question since these are more widely shared across the community to help members find an answer faster. The community Manager or other MapR Staff may decide to convert your content at any time given the above criteria.
