    [Feature Request] API practical example and AnswerHub reward

    1) It is great to see the source code of every method but it would be far more usefull to have a practical example (like MSDN)

    2) There are too many unanswered questions in the AnswerHub, of course the best solution would be to have professional worker answering those questions but even some reward stuff like Stack Overflow could help.

    We're working on creating the infrastructure for supporting this and adding code examples for things. It's a long-term project to get every method covered, but we hope to hit the most commonly used ones soon.

      Responding to 1, they are aware of the need for such things and as such are trying to improve the documentation to include such things, they are currently working on the C++ programming documentation, so we'll see what that brings, I haven't heard any specific details, although the first release will likely be focused on the documentation side of things not the API (yes the API is part of the documentation, but I hope you know what I'm trying to express, also note I'm not in communication with epic so this is purely speculation).

      Responding to 2, the staff does answer questions however they cannot spend all of their time answering questions, first because they have other work to do, and second because one person can't necessarily satisfactorily answer every single question posed. I agree that a reward system would be a nice benefit to those that actively try to help the community though.

        We are planning improvements for the AnswerHub to help improve incentive for community involvement and enhance discoverability of questions. As mentioned, Epic staff enjoy helping out as able, but ultimately it is up to our community of developers to share knowledge and help grow the community as a whole.
