DC Feedback

Syndicate content 55 

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.

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:

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?

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.

I was trying to find an article today that I knew had been posted about Wireshark installations causing problems with Studio and other Caché components. If I search the community for 'Wireshark install', the article I'm looking for does not even show up. I found it eventually in the text of one of the Digest post, but this is the article:

A lot of tools in InterSystems products are designed to help facilitate high availability solutions (Mirroring and ECP come to mind readily). Since a lot of concerns about these technologies are in a similar thread regarding High Availability, I believe it might be worthwhile to create a High Availability Group within the Developer's Community.

What thoughts do people have on the addition of such a group?

As well as participating in DC I continue to monitor the Google Group at https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/intersystems-public-cache

Since yesterday the Google Group has started receiving postings from a user called intersystems.dc. These postings look like they're trying to replicate DC postings, though images don't appear. Nor are there any links leading across to DC, which is where the follow-up comments and answers are likely to appear.

suggestions to try to make the searching of the community better, more relevent

I've been searching within the community for an article about troubleshoting SQL's working out how efficient they are, and how to look inside the system for other SLQ's that we used but may be inefficient,  (still haven't found it, and getting frustrated)

In this instance, after many guesses, I tried

Typically the thumbsup/thumbsdown icons are grayed out until you vote for one.  Then it is either red or green depending on which you selected.  I like this behavior.  However, on my own posts, the ones I cannot vote for, the indicators are both colored.  Since the visual queue has already been established that this indicates a selected vote, I think this should be changed.  Perhaps, since we cannot vote on our own posts, completely hide them.

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.

I just clicked on the link "Contribute feedback about this site" and was brought to the feedback group

https://community.intersystems.com/group/developer-community-feedback

However all the issues that have been logged are now  gone.   Were they all fixed?

All that is there  is some year old posts about winning a pass to global summit 2016.  They should not be in this feedback group.

Also the button to "create a new post" is gone from this page.
