Let XDA Help Organize Your Development Project Q&A Threads
A battalion of Recognized Contributors on XDA is eager to lend developers a helping hand by maintaining their Q&A threads. This is ideal for developers who don’t want their project threads to be inundated with questions and troubleshooting requests. Instead, we prefer that development threads are split into two threads: one for Q&A + Troubleshooting (Q&A/T), and one for development. In the case where a developer has chosen to use XDA Development Database for their project, they can associate a separate Q&A/T thread to their main project, thus spawning a new tab that makes it super easy for users to find their way. Additionally, linked Q&A/T threads get a special badge alongside the thread listing to help them stand out.
If this sounds interesting and you’d like to learn more about the process of getting an RC to maintain your Q&A/T thread, if you want to maintain the thread on your own and you want to see a template, or if you simply want to see a sock-puppet explain the initiative in an entertaining video, check out this thread for more info (thanks kuzibri).

The device has a Quad...

Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
