Hi Dan and thanks for prompt reply:
Seems a shame to have an entire cat (the most robust one prob) being (most likely) the least used, as “official
announcements” are usually few and far… AOT daily posts and comments.
I wanted to create a BlogTopic only because I thought I could. My preference would be to have a user consensus
of what the community might feel are worthy subjects; in my opinion, things directly related to xibo client/server but
not the applications themselves, per se… Just all the stuff that circulates/revolves around them.
In my case its all things linux, others may see something else as a good topic, dunno.
You know your members the best so its not for me to assert, but I’ve seen a broad range of people here; from non-technical
endusers to rather savy geeks w/tweaks; hard to keep all those cats in the herd, i suspect it eats into xibo coding and your day job.
But even if you came to agree, Discourse (and i’ve checked out their site, nice for what it does) is really not ideally suited to be a forum
(like vbulliten and ilk). I suspect you and I are more in concordance on our POV than not; but I would like to
stress that (IMO) its the community, and their ability to share, that makes the product, as it becomes the goto place for
answers. In that regard the platform’s functionality has to support it.
Also, it would be nice (and ultimately necessary) if you and Alex and the other leaders can off-load some of the demands
of fielding questions onto the membership. But there is little to facilitate doing that apart from isolated answers to questions;
for instance, it would be nice if members could PM each other.
"We left Launchpad because…"
Any chance of integrating all your ‘answers’ into community.xibo? or some other ‘archive’?
Keep up the good work!
Using the “Support”/general area is, I agree, a good starting point from which to expand.
