AltME: Community

Messages

AdrianS
the AltME numbers are bogus though - I got those from the web archive which shows only the web-public activity (and a non-constant one at that, if you hit F5 repeatedly)
I'd like to get the true numbers
Ladislav
what is "f8bk"? You mean facebook? Fb is not a mailing list, I think. The
https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/rebol
is
Also, the stackoverflow is not as active as it may look at the first sight. The reboltutorial's activity is sometimes quite "artificial", I would say.
Andreas
Adrian, thanks for getting this restarted.
I think we should put this up on the rebol.net Wiki for a start. This will give us a convenient location to point to.
Andreas
Actually, we had such a page before:
http://rebol.net/wiki/DocBase:Community_Portal
Should probably get that cleaned up.
Andreas
Also, note an additional "chat" venue: IRC.
A few of us hang out in IRC in the channel #rebol on freenode (irc://chat.freenode.net, http://freenode.net). 128 messages in December. If you don't have an IRC client handy, freenode also provides a web-based client for quickly looking around: https://webchat.freenode.net/

I took the liberty of taking AdrianS's posting, reformatted it to Markdown (only minimal changes necessary), added IRC, reordered things slightly, and updated two few counts.
Here's a rendering of this updated Markdown document to HTML:

Ladislav, I agree about the level of activity not being as useful if the number of contributors is not specified, but for now this will have to do. The way to do this is through some reasonably smart scripting that can obtain a better breakdown of posts by user, either through scraping or some sort of API, if available.
Andreas
GrahamC, Ladislav: are you ok with this group becoming web-public as is?
(For the record: I am ok with it.)
AdrianS
Thanks for the additions, Andreas. It was my intent to have this in Markdown or something like it to have it be easily posted to any web site that could accept such content.
Ladislav
OK
"obtain a better breakdown of posts by user" - I do not criticize your findings, I do not even think it is needed to know how many contributors there are; that was rather an observation from me related to one "prolific" contributor
AdrianS
well, I actually think that this breakdown is useful myself because it's true that some people are just so much more 'prolific' than others
Gregg
Thanks for reviving this Adrian.
GrahamC
I'm okay.  This summary though looks like it would be tedious to do.  Can it be scripted?

Andreas
Group is now web public.

AdrianS
Andreas, your R3 binaries page looks really nice.  Might be worth putting up a link to the Android binary even though it's not built (yet) by your build farm just to have everything available in one place. I'm assuming Saphirion wouldn't mind if the right attribution is made.
AdrianS
Would it be worth putting what compiler switches were used for the builds? Do you think you'll want to provide debug builds at any point?
