    First, I willingly admit that I am a complete newb. The last time I wrote a program from start to finish without having to look up how to do it every step of the way was nearly ten years ago - and that was in Visual Basic 6.0! Yeah, I'm a little rusty...

    I just started fulfilling my dream of making my own game by learning Unity 5 Personal edition. The video tutorials on line are really good, although outdated by a version or two. Okay, brand new version, some stuff is bound to change and it takes a while for tutorial makers to catch up and revise or update their videos.

    I love the awesome feature in MonoDevelop that lets me highlight a piece of code, hit CTRL + ' and it takes me to the documentation on how to use that code. This is especially helpful to me since I am also learning C#. However, sometimes the documentation's code example is in JavaScript and only JavaScript. I know just enough about JS to tell it apart from C++.

    I know it would be a huge undertaking, but would it be possible for some dedicated and knowledgeable individuals to update the documentation to display all examples in both C# and JavaScript? I'm sure this would help a lot of people besides just me.

    Hi there,
    We are aware of the fact that not all our example code has been converted to C#. If you have specific cases of that, please report them as bugs (via http://issuetracker.unity3d.com/), and we can take care of those pages in due time.

    Not sure if they qualify as a bugs, but I suppose it makes them easier for you to find and update.

    UPDATE: I'm either going blind or stupid... I just discovered a little box where I can select C# or JavaScript at the top right of the page I was looking at yesterday. Well, if I ever find any that are only in JS I'll let you know.

    I've found a few examples of UnityEditor classes which are just in UnityScript and I was wondering what the best way to report to them to Unity. If it's through the issue tracker then I shall do that!

    The best way to report this IS thru the issue tracker.
