DC Feedback

Syndicate content 54 

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.

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.

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.

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:

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:

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

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.

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 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'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 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)?

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

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.

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.

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.

Hello,

I think it will be very useful to add the following information about community members:

-Full Name (that is the only thing we see today)

-Company

-Title

-[Optional] Areas of interests/expertise 

This information should help the community members evaluate the credibility of posts and responses.

 

Thanks,

Asaf
