Revision history [back]

The developers of EnergyPlus and OpenStudio do pay attention to this site. Moreoever, they presumably subscribe to the 'energyplus' and 'openstudio' tags respectively and see questions with those tags in their inboxes (this is what it's important to tag your question with which software you are using).

As far as citing UnmetHours discussions. People cite Wikipedia all the time. It may be frowned upon in some venues, but people do it. I've also seen citations to Stack Exchange and in fact there is a discussion of this practice on Stack Exchange Meta here. One thing that makes this practice more robust in Stack Exchange is that you can explicitly reference revisions, which effectively lets you take a snapshot of a discussion. I don't know if you can do this in UnmetHours, maybe @Admin can chime in on this.
