I am more then willing to volunteer a section on my forums for
Libreoffice and the TDF discussion and support as well. I am using phpbb
for the forums though :(
thanks a lot for that offer. If we, however, decide for TDF forums, I
then would like to host our own ones, within our infrastructure.
We have other choices, of course, one of them being to use one of the
existing forums and appoint them as "official". As I understand it,
the reason of this thread is to find out whether we should go for
hosting our own ones.
If we decide to, I would be more than happy of course of having you as
a contributor there. ;-)
If you opt to name one as an official TDF mirror it wont take me a
second to setup a TDF section and LO section for use.
I am wondering though if you go for self hosted solution i am wondering
instead of using a seperate user login to login to the forums if one has
an account to edit the wiki lets say can that be used for existing
users, as well as allowing those users who dont edit the wiki to sign up
for an account through the forums and end up as contributors as well for
the wiki if they need it down the road?
I would favour TDF/LibreOffice forums service using OpenID support.
Drew's Nabble site has shown that we can run forums and in fact, most
likely, the moderators who do the work there, may want to keep
moderating on our own forums. The moderators, and, especially Drew have
done a wonderful job of it. BTW, I don't think we have done this often
enough, but, thanks to all of these people. I personally don't think
that we would have any problems finding moderators for a forums if we
need any. Our community will "step up to the plate" if there is a call
for help for forums moderators.
Of course we would have to tie everything in with the mailing lists and
gmane so that all communication is done seamlessly.
As for the duplication of forums services at TDF/LibreOffice, Apache and
community-run forums. I don't think there is any way to avoid the
problem of an overall general shake-out where there will be a period of
anarchy in the office suite forums service. This is an eventuality that
we have all been putting off. The reality of the matter is that, whoever
has the largest user-base and the best service will gain the most use.
Such is nature of the "forums beast". This should be enough incentive
for us to offer an unbiased approach to a forums service and moderate
with the utmost of fairness. If we want to run forums we need to run
them really well and keep in mind that the overlying rule is that we
want to "community build" and not scare users away.
