User contributed featurescript documentation

One downside of the constant flow of additional features to OnShape is the featurescript documentation gets somewhat left behind.

Sometime I discover something by chance (or by close study of the std features source code) and would love to be able to share that knowledge in a structured way.

For example I found today that you can adjust the angle of the end of a hole feature in feature script by setting tipAngle (or have a flat bottom by setting to 180) but where do I put this info so others looking for it can find it?

On the standard documentation could you add an option to hide/show user comments, then if you allowed other users to up and down vote on how useful a comment was you could even make it self policing (if a comment gets more than -x votes it is removed and top voted comments get moved up).

    @keith_marsh I moved this from the improvement site to here.  Our documentation is not a wiki and I can understand the benefit for a stackoverflow like feel but it becomes a management issue to weed out comments that may or may not be useful.

    I am in the middle of making a FeatureScript tutorials repository on Github.
    A link to it is here: https://github.com/morganb21/featurescript-tutorials/
    It currently has the slot feature tutorials from Onshape.
