Hey hey community team (and hopefully OAI staff)!
We all seem to be playing around with and enjoying GPT builder quite frequently.
My intentions for truly joining this community of devs, not just the forum, has been to help people to better interact with these systems. I hope I’ve been living up to my expectations so far, and you all have been seeing value in my contributions!
That being said, I’m noticing a huge influx of GPT builder queries on here. This is a good thing! It means people are using this tool well, and people are already trying to learn how to use it proficiently.
The problem is that these queries are scattered pretty much across all the current categories, likely because people don’t know where to put them. It also makes us “helpers” difficult to sort and identify these particular queries, because they’re kind of everywhere.
Because this is a brand new tool, there’s also no real in-depth guided documentation for GPT builder yet. I would expect this, considering it’s been what, a week? I have no doubt OAI staff is writing stuff up as we speak.
However, this means that we, the community, are going to be the ones people turn to for questions for a little while. Right now, the first thing I see if I wanted to ask a question (which I technically did already) was go “okayyyy, soo, is this a ChatGPT question? If I’m developing using OpenAPI schema, do I use the API category? Is GPT builder considered “prompting”? Do we think of it like a plugin and ask questions there?” If it’s confusing to me, it’s confusing to newbies, and from the looks of it, expect a lot of newcomers to be coming here to ask GPT builder-related questions.
Either change/adjust the “Plugin” category to merge the two concepts together (like what the current docs are leaning towards), or create a separate category entirely to accommodate this influx.
This needs to happen, like, now lol. If you change this now, it will buy OAI time to make more docs, and the category can be the hub for current users to seek help while we all basically learn from each other on the fly.
