    Hi all,

    Just over a month ago I released an extension for Google Chrome that adds shared notes to Unity documentation pages, as a way of seeing and sharing gotchas and notes on the various documentation pages. It's powered by Disqus, so it's the same commenting interface you may be used to from a lot of other sites and helps keep out spam and keep the notes high quality.

    We already have over 500 users and 100 notes! All notes are checked by moderators (myself and one other right now) for accuracy and to make sure they're relevant. We're trying to maintain a high quality bar when it comes to notes, so questions and comments that don't add value to the page will be removed, which seems to be working very well with the notes so far (we've only deleted 2 so far).

    This extension works across Unity versions, as notes aren't version specific.

    You can download the extension for Chrome here. You can also install it in Firefox using the same link if you have Foxified installed

    Genius. Thank you! I'll definitely be using this and hopefully contributing some useful notes...
