Forum


#1

can we get a forum please, i find the google groups email thing total rubbish (i had to pick a word that wasnt a swear word here). It’s awful.

I recommend a $10 month cloud discourse setup:

We all have our preferences, and we could discuss for a while about choosing between the setup-once-and-run-forever, free, simple, or quick ways of doing this. The deciding factor is who’s volunteering to do it. I like your suggestions. So if you’re volunteering to set it up then let’s talk some more off list.

BTW Jono and wife Erica (Co-founder and COO of Bitnami --yet another cloud services provider) are very supportive of this project. It’s a small world. :smiley:

I’ve got it! Let’s have a WordPress forum with an IRC embedded in Java on Google+ with Discus for comments and a BIIIIG FB “like” button. TinyMUD as a backup. Roll +4 for redundancy check.

I prefer git pulls to do updates - keep the design stock and use a few css tweaks to match valentinas design. i.e a logo, maybe a background color change and you have less mess later… Less mess = no issues with major updates. I have used pretty much all the forums out there in some way or another. I am running my own forums here and there and prefer this method. I can ssh in, do a pull, and carry on with no downtime.

I dont think sharing a forum with the same host is a good idea, the pressure on the sql DB and php pages will be too much. I would consider getting a #Valentina irc channel on irc.freenode.net too… All my favorite projects i am involved in are permanently in my irssi client and i can keep my accounts permanently logged in and have an irc bouncer feed what i missed between sessions.

FYI I used to do web design (at university) and i loathe wordpress - i think it’s great to get a site up initially - but wordpress.com has a highly optimised version, they tend to slowwwwww dowwwwwn a lot when they are used a lot. I would prefer something like using git/markdown for the pages and a simple intepreter to add a design to it…

FYI I had a good discussion with Jono Bacon 10+ years ago from Linux User magazine (KDE Developer + Writer) when he was running open advantage over here in the West Midlands about open source and business.

Just to finish my point:

Everyone here will talk about the efforts about “developing” a website, keeping it up to date. Sorry but that so 10 years ago, pick git, markdown and discourse and have a load balanced or cloud server and forget about it, just pull updates like you do your software…

And in response to disqus etc, still too old news for me, reminds me of phpbb. Yes I have used it. You need cloud to take advantage of discourse. Cloud as in load balanced servers NOT gimmicky names for “a computer you drag data from”. If you think of all the things we might “need” we could probably work it out WAY simpler, and use existing services for open source projects that have 10+ years of stability.

Pattern sharing could be converted to SVG to view in the browser and source on git, for example. I want your costs to be low. I pay tiny amounts for domains, dollars a month for cloud load balanced servers and use git.

Hi Matt,

Wow, thats a great suggestion!

We are moving to a Dreamhost website (www.valentinaproject.org) where we can have a blog, forum, user gallery, and patternshare. The current URL (www.valentina-project.org) will be redirected to the new URL after the new website is fully built. Hopefully this will coincide with the v0.4.0 software release.

Are you willing to set up the forum? Allison Levine is adding a blog www.valentinaproject.org/blog using WordPress. Vasili Puchko has volunteered to add a pattern share.

Question: do you prefer Discourse? How about Vanilla forums http://vanillaforums.org/ which is open source & has great reviews, or bbPress https://bbpress.org/ which drops into a WordPress site? Free is better, but we can pay for a service if there are features we need.

Hey,

What do you think about using Disqus channel as a forum? Disqus is a proven solution for adding comments section to blogs, sites, etc. Recently it introduced channels which can be used as forums. It has rich notification functionality. You can have a look here - https://disqus.com/home/channel/valentinaproject/ .On Friday, October 9, 2015 at 2:22:19 AM UTC+3, BrassNMortar wrote:

I would highly advise that the forum retain the ability for “push” notifications via email on threads, otherwise people sometimes don’t realize a reply was made. Email mailing lists have that advantage by their nature.

I sure wish I had the ability to help with this. It sucks having a job that forces me to be AFK constantly. :frowning:

If you check the reviews on discourse - you will see if blows the rest out the water for handling users. I dont know dreamhost, but the cloud setup that digital ocean uses is load-balanced across their servers.
