Ask Fedora - Community knowledge base and wiki

HI

I have setup a test website called Ask Fedora as a question and answer oriented forum to build a community knowledge base and wiki with a low barrier to entry. Check it out and let me know your feedback (Edit: Link above)

Gee, I kinda thought that's what we were doing here, Rahul.

I did visit it and clicked on several topics marked with answers, but to no effect. Just a spinning timer. Do you have to join to view answers?

There are a number of key differences between a discussion forum and a purely question and answer oriented community. If you play around with the site, the differences should become more visible.

You don't have to join. I was testing memcached to make the site faster and maybe you were checking it out during that time. Try again. It should work fine

Yes, that's what was happening. It all works now.

And sure, I understand. Hope this provides some good info for Fedora users.

Re: Ask Fedora - Community knowledge base and wiki

Hi

Remember, this is a test site. If you are having problems accessing, it probably means I am tweaking something and restarting the daemon. Just try again in a while.

This AM link is broken,

And note to Bob, Since you are moderating all postings.

Glenn, if I recall, used to keep a notebook with wonderful snippets responding to tweaking Fedora, or responding to forum questions. It is something Glenn did that I admired. Because, we of "too many things on our plate" appreciated his collected snippets. For example, the little hint earlier this week about grub2 rebooting the last selected distribution was most useful. I hope Glenn tucked it away in his "notebook".

What about an area on this forum where we can post those little things, and refer to them, especially when we are brain fatigued?

Re: Ask Fedora - Community knowledge base and wiki

Leslie, I'd suggest the Social Groups for that. Heavens knows it's not being utilized for much else these days.

Also, removed old link and pointed to the one at the top of this Forum.
