Thread: Thank you to opensuse forum admins and all the users!

  1. #1

    Default Thank you to opensuse forum admins and all the users!

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone here that has easily made this the best forum (on any topic) that I've ever used. I've had to use a lot of forums (C/C++, Java, SQL, Windows, Google, etc) and none of them are as helpful, knowledgeable and quick with help for people.

    Even when someone doesn't have the answers here, they're still able to help by pointing me towards the right questions, diagnostics to eventually get there.

    So, thanks!

    What they all said. :-)

    It's always nice to have some positive feedback from time to time -
    that's one of the drivers for me. :-)

    You know, it's not usually included in reviews of OS's but the community behind it is actually pretty important. Especially since most people needing help on linux will not be able to just call a "geek squad" to fix things (not that I would anyways, but still). So I'm glad that openSUSE has put so much into making this a strong community (choosing the right people, making it important to them). This is in stark contrast to the community of another big linux distro that I've found has a near-useless community/forum.

    What I'd like to see, is some way to integrate this community into openSUSE. Perhaps something where:

    * If an OS-level error or openSUSE built-in app error occurs, the error box has a link "Ask for help at openSUSE's Forums" which opens the forums in a widget on the desktop and starts the post with the error message on code tags.

    * Built-in apps have a link/icon for asking for help in doing something (e.g. in YAST) that opens the forums in the desktop widget

    - the widget then periodically checks for responses and alerts you when you have one (similar to a twitter widget) and shows the response.

    And what a huge selling point this would be for openSUSE! It'd be like your own built-in tech support! No other OS has that!

    An interesting idea - you've got the wheels turning (this kinda lines up
    with a work-related project I've been kicking around as well)....

    good idea!

    but since we have that still unsolved split community problem, i guess
    the folks who would do the support widget coding might prefer the
    questions go to an existing (or new) openSUSE mail list [as the coders
    generally consider those mail list as the best (only?) place
    addressing qualified supporters...
