Hey folks! I hope you’re having a great day. I am new here. Out of curiosity, I am just wondering why there are multiple communities for different topics, whereas we have tags for that purpose to filter articles on dev.to. Is it like centralization/ownership of information and something along this line?
Another question I can think of is whenever publishing an article on dev.to related to vscode, do I need to cross-post it on here? If so, please share a good guide for that.
Other than that, this place looks incredibly promising. Less gooo!

Mahmoud, great questions!

dev.to is an amazing place to post content! I even cross-post content from here on DEV.

The reason for multiple communities is to be more focused on certain things. In my case, I'm a big fan of VS Code, and I thought it deserved it's own community and others seem to agree, i.e. our community members. 😎

In regards to cross-posting, do what you want to do. I cross-post to get more reach, and remember there is a canonical URL you can set. I use this all the time because a lot of content I post originates from my blog, iamdeveloper.com.
