DC Feedback

Syndicate content 53 

Hi, Community!

We've updated Developer Community (DC) portal and here are some good news.

Now you can insert in your post highlighted parts of code. It works with help of highlight.js library.

To illustrate it I took some code snippets from Fabian's article.  

 
Method OnPreServer() As %Status
{
 set ..SharedConnection=1
 set room=$GET(%request.Data("room",1),"default")
 set:room="" room="default"
 if (..WebSocketID'="")
  {
   set ^CacheTemp.Chat.WebSockets(..WebSocketID)=""
   set ^CacheTemp.Chat.Room(..WebSocketID)=room }
 else
  {
   set ^CacheTemp.Chat.Error($INCREMENT(^CacheTemp.Chat.Error),"no websocketid defined")=$HOROLOG
  }
 Quit $$$OK
}
 

To paste formatted text do following

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

Hello all.

I think the forum experience is great as whole, but it could improve even more if we had somewhere to share our ideas. So that's why I'm creating a thread dedicated for that purpose. Maybe this way someone from InterSystems could catch something good?

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.

Hello community!

At the global summit in Phoenix, we (Lite Solutions) will be presenting a tool performing static code analysis on ObjectScript source files. You can see it in action at this URL:

https://demo.cachequality.com

Technically, the tool is a language plugin over SonarQube (http://sonarqube.org) and consists of three main parts:

  • parsing the language,
  • collecting metrics,
  • collecting issues.

The third point is where we kindly request for feedback.

Explanation: issues are the result of rules being triggered by inspecting the source files. But while we do have some experience with the language, this experience is too "fresh" for us to accurately estimate the severity/time to fix of such issues. The list of rules, along with their severity and time to fix can be found here

When posts are displayed on the DC homepage they only show the first part of each post. This part is known as the teaser, or the trimmed version. The DC software does its best, but without being given any hint by you it can sometimes produce teasers that are of limited value, e.g. "Hi!"

When composing your post, the Preview button lets you see what the teaser will look like. For example, here's the preview of an initial version of this post:

And if you want to take control, put the cursor at the point you want the teaser to end, then click this button on the editor toolbar:

Hello everyone,

 

From now till the 25th of december each day 2 programming problems to sharpen your programming skills.

http://adventofcode.com/

 

Theme this year:

The night before Christmas, one of Santa's Elves calls you in a panic. "The printer's broken! We can't print the Naughty or Nice List!" By the time you make it to sub-basement 17, there are only a few minutes until midnight. "We have a big problem," she says; "there must be almost fifty bugs in this system, but nothing else can print The List. Stand in this square, quick! There's no time to explain; if you can convince them to pay you in stars, you'll be able to--" She pulls a lever and the world goes blurry

Most of my comments/contributions are personal, not reflecting the point-of-view of my current client. My WRC account is normally 'connected' with my clients email domain (e.g. csc.com).

I would like to set a personal account for DC so I can receive the digests in my own email box.

More sophisticated, I would like to use more then one email per account where I can specify on which address I want to receive DC digests

I'm very proud of the Worldwide Response Center - an excellent group of men and women - and I am interested to hear from you about your experience using the WRC.  There are always better ways for us to serve you.   

 

I'm also very excited about the Developer Community which we're bringing to you to give you an opportunity to connect with groups and individuals in the InterSystems community.  Let us know what you think and how we can improve it in order to serve you better.

I know this has been suggested before but I wanted to bring it up again.

It would be very nice if we could "accept" an answer to our questions which would result in the question showing "answered" in the index and possibly move the "accepted answer" to the top of the answer chain.

see: Stack Overflow or any other QA site

I noticed a lot of sites these days support use of Gravatar user profile pictures so your profile picture can follow you around from site to site, could we support this here?

 http://en.gravatar.com/

Also there appears to be some HTML bug in the user profile edit page, when I click on the 'edit' tab I see options to edit the profile for a fraction of a second before this closes and I am unable to edit anything.

I am confused about the meaning of "rating".

Is it how good the post is?

I did a search on "Rating" and got a lot of hits, but none seems to answer my question, either that or I missed it.

It would be nice to have some basic documentation on questions like these.

I don't mean to be difficult and maybe I don't understand, but what is the reason for having a rating?

Hi!

Here is small "How to" again.

Suppose you need to share something with source code. How can we manage it on DC?

Sharing code snippets

1. Add normal post (not Code Package).

2. Paste your code in the post and format it with highlighting as it is described here.

3. If you see that your COS code is highlighted wrong it means that autodetect missed with language. Open the post's HTML ("disable rich-text" button below the Editor) and put class=COS parameter into the code tag.

Example

Hi, -  Is it possible for users to select their preferred date format ?  For example, if you click on Connect > Communities you are shown, for each community, something like: 'Latest Post: 01/14/2016 -'

I'd prefer the date in dd/mm/yyyy format (rather than mm/dd/yyyy).

Steve

I posted a question and someone replied with a comment.  
This comment  was marked as an answer, but the comment does not actually answer the question. 

How do I tell the system that the comment is not actually an answer and should not be marked as answered?  

Can the original post author decline an answer?  What is the  answer is incorrect?

Can the community vote on the best answer (like on other popular discussion boards)?

Please add possibility to sort posts by last comment date.

Consider, for example this post
https://community.intersystems.com/comment/4941#comment-4941

It is of February, 15th and has fresh (6 hours ago) comments, still this post is not shown in newest.

For example, there might be the button "Sort by updated". It is very useful to track all updates on forum.
