    Re: The other shoe has dropped

    This is an experiment to see if Discourse is good, I've posted about it here: http://15.185.233.27/t/let-s-kick-th...ead-me-first/2

    But haven't posted to the forum yet pending a temporary domain.

    That makes sense - would have been excellent proof of canonical's ability to communicate if the Forum Council had been aware that Jorge was off to shout about it anywhere he could.

    We were aware of this - but were under the impression that we'd get to have a look first.

    As it was - it was just like everything else - badly communicated.

    Waiting for a reply would have been courteous. We wanted to discuss a testing strategy before going public.

    As it is, trying to get correct usergroup permissions for forum staff seems to be an uphill struggle. Without them we're not really in a position to give anything approaching sensible feedback, which I'd assume was what was wanted.

    Ah well.

    Please do not PM me about your forum account unless you have been asked to. The correct place to contact an admin about your account is here.

    I know Jorge very well... I doubt there was any intent to circumvent the forums council... I see it as more Jorge being excited about a new possibility. When people are excited and putting in time to make things happy they want to share with others... that is part of the attraction of Open Source. Jorge is a high-energy extremely positive person.

    I think we need to work on this in the light of an honest evaluation of an alternative product and try to leave emotion out of the equation.

    I'll close this thread - there is another that is less emotive.
