When consider to buy or use a new tool, I look for size of the community. 
How I can get help and how likely it is that the tool will be around for a while.
Choosing between ”never heard of” and ”millions of users and active”, the choice is easier to make.

I am a forum guy and I am using several forum daily. 
There are forums like Omnis Forum that have practically no activity. Painfully slow and useless. 
More or less a joke. I cannot even reach it today. Is it down?
And there is SO. Not the friendliest forum, but the gets the highest quality answers. Especially vanilla SQL questions.

By using SO for clear tech questions there is a chance to increase the visibility of Omnis.
I hope that this list will never be replaced, because it is more of a discussion forum.
Discuss or ask for an opinion on SO, you will be banned in seconds.

If there will be some Omnis activity on SO, I can try to add more tags in the future.
My intention was only to add these tags. FWIW.
