    announcement: debianuserforums.org


    Some people are creating a new forum for Debian-users.
    You might want to check it:
    debian user forums
    It is a young project, a few days old. Nothing is written in stone yet.
    If you read some posts you will get the idea which is leading it. I hope.
    (short: from users, for users. Not lead by rules/owners/etc. Who is a user? The ones who are there. That easy. You should run Debian, sure. With Debian i mean Debian).

    I am known by the nickname "nadir" there.
    Projects might always fail, but i got a bit of hope that it is a keeper.

    If it is not ok to announce it here, please take care of it (and a big sorry).

    When you go to Debian User Forums • Index page it says at the top of the page "Debian User Forums". A slight conflict?

    When i edited the code inside of [url= ****] was correct. So i got no idea what went south there.
    Thanks

    Not sure, but I think he was comparing at least the names for the two different websites linked above, and maybe the appearance as well.

    We -finally- realized the name problem.
    (if i go to forums.debian.net i type exactly that. It is also the adress if you right-click and chose "copy url-address" for the link above, which says "Debian User Forums • Index page". I for one have never seen a link to forums.debian.net like that).
    But at the top of its index page it says: Debian User Forum, like said in the post above.
    No one realized that, and i made it public to discuss.
    I for one am sure that it was a mistake, not by bad will.
    Nothing is written in stone yet.
    You can see the discussion of the name here:
    DebianUserForums.org • View topic - Forum name
    and here:
    DebianUserForums.org • View topic - hosting and domain names - discuss
    So: thanks for that hint.


    About the look: it is standard phpbb, or not? I don't know. I am quite sure that no one did change much about the standard look. I for one don't care much about look and feel.

    I assume this follows on from the recent violent flamewar in another forum. I must admit I'm in two minds about this and don't know whether to register or not. On the one hand I hate flames (even when directed towards people who seem to be asking for it). Put it down to my age and sex. On the other hand I rather like the idea of a forum that is completely controlled by its members. Why does it seem to be so difficult to have both?

    I guess you moved because above links take me to nothing;

    DebianUserForums.org • View forum - Discussion

    Is there a reason why i can't edit my OP ?

    I could add the new address, but in case it is not welcome it seems pointless.

    In general i am not very happy if my posts get edited, my threads get move and i am not able to edit my own posts without being informed about it.

    I think because there is a time limit.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Posts can only be edited by their authors for 24 hours after they are posted. After that, only forum admins can edit them. More info on how the forums are setup can be found here:
