Hi everyone!

I’m the new InterSystems Community Manager and responsible for everything within  the InterSystems Developer Community itself including Community Events, Content and Projects etc.

Please feel free to point all the criticism to me along with suggestions of course!

Our team is working now on fixing some evident and annoying UI problems to make this place comfortable for all the InterSystems customers and new developers to discuss InterSystems related problems, questions, techology and projects. 

My duty is to make you happy with InterSystems Community Portal and gain maximum value from it!

Quick investigation reveals that the contact image with no avatar specified is missing the class img-responsive which breaks the layout. 

Actually it looks like it's just a hard-coded width and height?

How was it born?  Who runs it?  How committed is Intersystems to it?  Is it run by a dedicated person/team or is it a part time job?

 

It's difficult to find community support for Intersystems products.  I've had relative success lately on StackOverflow but that's mostly thanks to one person (who is also a member here).  The point being, this is a very important asset for us as developers, administrators and users of your product.  I hope that fact is not lost on management at Intersystems.  

Some of the design decisions and other things I see here lead me to believe this might be a pet project or something created as an afterthought.  If that's the case, I hope it changes soon.  If that's not the case, and this is a serious effort by a team, well, there might be other issues going on..

A few other people (one person who pointed it out, then everyone else I asked to confirm) noted that https://community.intersystems.com/myuserpoints shows "Points for Timothy Leavitt" in the browser/tab title. The page itself shows these users' actual names rather than mine.

This makes me worry that other parts of the site could confuse users' identities too.

The problem is specific to that URL/alias, reached by the "View points transactions" link on the main user page. On the "Points" tab (https://community.intersystems.com/user/<uid>/points), I've been told that the title is correct.

While comment content appears to be sent in subscription emails, new posts do not.  E.g.:

[quote]

| Greetings, Benjamin Spead.

| Your subscriptions on InterSystems Developer Community notify you of

| the following changes since the previous digest:

[/quote]

 

I had to click the link to see the content of the post.  This information really needs to be included in the emai (and as mentioned before, the email subject should be the post title if someone selects 'immediate' notification)

If you look at the homepage as a guest (not logged in), the third column has a header of "Knowledgeable  Members", but there is no text.  It is an empty column...looks like a mistake/bug/missing data

 

Can this be fixed or replaced?

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create (tested) or favorite a topic

2. Wait some time

3.  Reply to this topic

4. You will receive [InterSystems Developer Community] Subscriptions Digest email with information that you replied to the topic.

 

I think these notifications must be sent only in cases of other people' replies.

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.
