In a talk in ask-fedora channel a contributor @heliosstyx talk about his Ideas about helping to ask-fedora be better

this is a resumen what he said :

@heliosstyx> I want to tell you all that this is not the manner to communicate with people who wants to get things better!

@heliosstyx> My ideas for ask fedora are the following: It needs a better structure (categories or sub-categories) to make this webistes clearer. Now it is very unclear and unstructured. @heliosstyx> It is very hostile for newcomer, because they can not be oriented by the present categories (answered, unanswered, all). This helps nobody. @heliosstyx> The search can not be found directly. Some contributors are sometimes very unfriendly for newcomer and they do not answer the questions posted. sometimes you will get only links.

refering to this post ->

@heliosstyx> this links does not help to understand often. In my opinion this one main reasons that much people do not want to use Fedora, because they stay alone.

@me well is very dificult to review each answer to control the answer of each contributor well imagine that we have to moderate all the answer don't think that we don't understand you

@heliosstyx> Okay, I see you understand me. I hope this talks will change something and you will save the posted ideas. @heliosstyx> An automatic moderation is the wrong way, as we can see int the forum now. @heliosstyx> I am leaving now. Please put my ideas to the right channel that something will get better.

@me there are open ideas, mattdm fedora project lider talk that the development is not as fast as he spect and he is review to migrate to this site -> is not close is just and start and I don't know what is the status of that idea, I just notify you

What do you think gals/guys?


Update 10/11/2018

that what our project leader talked yesterday about that :

@mattdm> hhlp heliosstyx -- sorry I missed that thread. I too have a lot of frustration with askbot. @mattdm> see

GitHub ASKBOT/askbot-devel Askbot is a Django/Python Q&A forum. Contributors README: Commercial hosting of Askbot a...

@mattdm> these things are never going to happen @mattdm> and none of them are really radical @mattdm> that's why I'm interested into moving us to different, modern, and maintained software @mattdm> askbot is basically a "done as it is" project.

What were the contributor's ideas helping to make ask-fedora better. is there a log of the conversation? Your post is not entirely clear (at least to me, but I am also not a very frequent user of this forum).

Is there a log of the conversation? That would help to better understand how the contributor wanted to help making ask-fedora better and what is actual complains are. Thanks.

I will clear it for you: disparaging remarks, often ugly English and slang expressions with broken grammar, which make it impossible to understand it (like the londoner docker english for a non native speaker). The whole system appears to be often unfriendly and arrogant and it's like a jungle of questions . It's a horror for newcomer and non experienced User. @florian: you are one the "good guys" in the forum, engaged and helpfully like others.

Please remember that some of our posters have limited knowledge of English and are doing the best they can. In some cases they're posting in English because there's no board for their language, so please be patient with them.
