Hi!

Sometimes you need to put formatted ObjectScript in a post.

To do that put the code into the editor, select it and click on ObjectScript button.

Once you save/preview the post the code will be highlighted as ObjectScript.

See the gif:

If you use Markdown editor, you can highlight ObjectScript if you place the code inside two tags: <pre><code> .... your code... </code></pre>

Hi community,

This is an idea to improve the community. Add a button to remove a comment/answer in a post. There is not a way to remove a comment, only I can edit. For example, duplicated comment, an answer that it was for a post but I've written in other one. etc...

Best regards,

Francisco López

Hi, Community!

I’m sure you are using Developer Community analytics built with InterSystems Analytics technology DeepSee:

You can find DC analytics n InterSystems->Analytics menu.

DC Analytics shows interactive dashboards on key figures of DC entities: Posts, Comments, and Members. 

Since the last week, this analytics project is available for everyone with source code and data on DC Github!

Here in Community I use the WYSIWYG Text format control to answer questions and other quick text entries.

But for longer posts when I want formatting or if I am building incrementally over several days I use the Plain text (supports markdown) control because it's quicker and easier to post an article I have written offline. In this post I share my workflow and a set of tools to publish long read posts.

On the homepage that we get when we go to https://community.intersystems.com/ there are three views, controlled by a set of buttons in the upper right:

Above is with the default view (the "house", i.e. the "home").

I think the text "Top posting" would be better expressed as "Top posts" (plural), or maybe even just "Posts" (because what does "Top" mean when I'm viewing, say, "most active" or "most viewed"?).

Also, when I pick the tag summary view ("tags" icon to the right of the "home" icon), the page doesn't offer me a way of switching to one of the other views ("home" or "compact"):

Hi, Community!

Today there are two main settings for your email notification subscriptions.

1. Subscribe to all new posts, all comments, all answers

You can do it in your subscription settings in the Content Types. Click on My Account, go to Subscriptions and click on Content types tab:

 

In this case, you'll get only one notification for every new article or question posted on DC and every answer and comment if you checked this option.

Here are some recipes with this option.

1. Receive all the new posts notifications (without answers and comments in it):

Turn on Post checkbox.

2. Receive all the new posts, answers and comments notifications (literally to get everything)

Hi, Community!

We have a lot of good articles posted on Community to the date. Even more questions with great answers (see the stats). Thank you for your contribution!

So sometimes it worth to use search to find an answer or the best practices or the post you remember was posted but cannot find.

When I go to search Austrian members I call

https://community.intersystems.com/members
and enter .at as filter for email. Result = OK.

 

but the resultset is lager than the space in display and I get this box at bottom

clicking to any of the boxes takes a while (e.g "2") and brings me (here) page 2 of ALL members.
Which wasn't  the intention.

Some analysis of the page shows me that after refresh all boxes are  anchors but just with the page number.
The original filter is lost:

 

 The marked href doesn't change whatever filter you apply

When I'm searching across the community I find lots of interesting questions sometimes with
excellent answers and suggestions. Quite often It's more than one solution.
Then I'm mostly missing an indication which solution worked or that nothing worked at all or the case was dropped.

I understand a community as partners working together, sharing experience and knowledge.
Many participants seem to have the same understanding and share their results.

But a surprising high number of participants are just CONSUMERS not giving any feedback or sharing a result.
This is quite disappointing to me. Sometimes these consumers react on a reminder.

The key event to raise that subject in public was: Getting no reaction at all. Even with reminder.
Following the questions of this specific consumer I found that no question ever got useful feedback

DC has developed to a rich and useful and active platform for developers in the InterSystems world.
And has a big advantage: It is  really embedded into InterSystems' customer interface.

The sad thing about is that it has a solid base of early adopters but related to the installed base
the growth rate of participants seems to me quite moderate and could be higher.

So I suggest to use the upcoming Global Summit and even more the local events that follow on
(e.g. German Symposium and similar events) to promote DC and bring the message to the local
developers (especially in Europe) that could not attend Global Summit.

Speaking for my area Developers Community and its capacity was rather unknown
or poorly used and it was definitely not pushed.

So massive promotion of DC is required

Here is an idea that would make the Developer Community immensely more valuable (to me anyway)

Have the capability of getting Listing output from searches or tags or groups.

In addition, have people put titles on their answers and comments,

And having a detailed list with all the answers and comments if needed

Then being able to sort the list by date or other criteria.

Something like:

Sub1 . . . .

-answer . . .

-comment . .

-answer . . .

Subject2 . . .

-answer . . .

Subject 3 . . .

-comments . . .

The top of my Answers tab looks like this:

To get to the question, first I have to click on the "Answer:" text (which only gets the appearance of a hyperlink when I mouse over it).

That click takes me here:

 

I now need to click on "Back to question page" in order to get where I want to be.

I suggest you put the "Back to question page" and its preceding checkmark (which denotes whether or not my answer was accepted) onto the "Answers" summary page in place of the "Answer:" hyperlink that doesn't look like a hyperlink.

Hi, Community!

We are having some troubles with post duplicates at the moment, we are working on it.

Now when you post your message it waits until timeout and shows 404  but also publishes the article. 

Hope this would be fixed ASAP.

It's good to see growing participation in DC. However, sometimes I think that responses posted as Answers to Questions would be better classified as Comments. For example, the respondent could be seeking clarification about the original question (e.g. "What Caché version are you using?"), or perhaps following up someone else's answer or comment.

From time to time someone adds the "Developer Community" tag to a post that's actually about something else. I wonder if by renaming the tag to "Developer Community Feedback" this wouldn't happen so much. After all, the group is called "Developer Community Feedback". If folk feel the proposed new name for the tag is too long, how about "DC Feedback"?

Hi, Community!

We are fixing groups, tags and message types for the several last year's postings.

So that's why you are getting "strange" notifications now with no any new comment.

As a result, you'll get better tagging and for the DC articles and questions.

Anyway, you can turn off the "OnUpdate" notifications as it is described here.

Hi!

Today DC supports the notifications for the posts' updates. It means if someone changes the post text, title, group or tag you can be notified about that.

But this notifications just inform that there were updates, but do not show what exactly was changed in the post.

So through this, you can get the notifications for the posts from previous years without any reason what's happened.

I would suggest to turn off this types of notifications until we'll implement the details in notifications, what exactly was changed in the post and why did you get it. 

To turn off the update notifications go to your subscriptions settings and turn off the updates triggers in the Content Types tab.

Like it is shown in this screenshot:
