Also what I've noticed about the resource pack discussion section is that threads like these don't get seen by the target audience.
Also understand, unless a YouTuber tells you to, or someone famous says so, people won't usually look around the MinecraftForums. Sure they'll google some stuff & a thread on the MinecraftForum site will pop up, but is it the right page? Is it a page that was helpful to them? Is it the page they were looking for?
Unless it's a mod or a Texture/Resource Pack, the answer is probably not. I know this, because I would Google everything. Need a Minecraft Mod-> Googled it. If it popped up, great; if it didn't, then to me the mod was dead & deleted. Whether or not this is the mentality of other MinecraftForum users, I don't know, but there are some guest (people who haven't made a MinecraftForum account) that do just google stuff & download the texture/resource pack &/or mod from the MinecraftForum Page they were on.
I didn't even understand how the MinecraftForum site worked, muchless navigate around the site. (Now I understand how the site & everything here works, but I was talking about when I just Googled everything).
