Hey, support for php-webdriver is slim right now. I learned how to use it mostly by contributing to it.

We should consider creating a Google Group or/and and IRC room for open support. Not only will this reduce the load of questions comeing through your Issue queue on github, but it will increase knowledge of this code throughout the community using it.

Why Google Groups and IRC? It's just the standard for open sourced projects, and thus where people look first. Beyond that, no reason.

How about the facebook gourp? https://www.facebook.com/groups/phpwebdriver/

That works for replacing the google group.

You might still want to consider an IRC channel (or a public Facebook messaging equivalent). The advantage there is that users with questions won't need to request to join the group and await approval via Facebook before they can ask their question. It's a more plug-and-play solution to support.

What does IFC stand for? Do you mean IRC?
