Forum is not user friendly

I signed up here to possibly find a solution to a problem but it seems like I’m in a maze - is this forum being actively used? I dont seem to find anything - am I missing something.
One thing I do want to say that Portainer is not as simple as running the following commands

docker volume create portainer_data
$ docker run -d -p 9000:9000 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v portainer_data:/data portainer/portainer

note the no use of the --name argument
a person sort of needs to start at the bottom of the instructions and work your way through this cryptic environment

this is not resonating with me at all.

The forum was created in December 2018.
There simply is no community (yet) as it seems.
The company behind portainer obviously has no interest in providing advice/help here, as their business model is paid support.

No idea what you mean with the missing --name argument?
Is this a command generated by Portainer?
