Re: Hello Thread

It's interesting, there is a bit of a chicken and egg problem here. TDE needs more developers across the entire stack (from documentation to code changes), but it's difficult to attract more people without frequent marketing of the DE, and it's difficult to market the DE without a flagship distro t...

Re: HTML guide when?

Personally, on my website , I avoid iframe navigation by just having a handful (seven, to be precise) of "hub pages" that have a navigation sidebar: Home, About, Thoughts, Links, Art, Shrines, and Miscellaneous. Those are all hand-written. Everything beyond that (as in, individual shrines,...

Re: Forum Culture, History & Future

Honestly, to expand on that last point a bit: It's a bit like streaming age music enjoyment versus physical media age music. Back then, you bought an album, you listened to it in its entirety, and even if you thought it was a bit weird or you didn't like it starting out, you stayed there because you...

Re: Forum Culture, History & Future

I've noticed that too, Discourse seems to have become less a tool for community building and into more of a organizational management tool for interface with the public through a limited channel. Much like a ticketing system, many Discourse forums mark threads as stale if they have been inactive fo...

Re: Hello Thread

Do you by any chance know what ever happened to the Ubuntu releases that were bundled with TDE? Recently Ubuntu Unity and Ubuntu Cinnamon have been accepted as official Ubuntu flavors, it makes me wonder if anyone has attempted to submit Ubuntu with TDE as a flavor, considering there were already d...

Re: Forum Culture, History & Future

Yes, finally someone says it! I could never really get into those Discourse based "forums" at all. The default design is also so minimalist and spaced-out that most of the time I have no idea what I am looking at. No boxes, borders, tables, just floating data. Some themes available for it ...

Re: Hello Thread

Many years ago I used to play a lot of MMOs, and have seen quite a few of them go from vibrant communities to mostly idle powergamers that don't interact with anyone outside of a few other powergamers. I've thought about ways a developer may implement their game mechanics such that it encourages mo...

Re: Posting from an older operating system

Thanks to this being a HTTP-enabled forum, I can also post from super old browsers without having to do any tedious HTTPS modifications. :D I still don't know why the doctrine for so many people is "HTTPS everywhere". Unless you transmit seriously sensitive information, there is practicall...

Re: Hello Thread

Haha, same here. I'd be lying if I said I didn't sometimes choose a less-popular technology due to a bit of contrarianism. *looks nervously at my diskman, portable cassette player, record player, pocket calculator, Nokia phone, ...* *looks even more nervously at my character and species choices in ...

Re: Hello Thread

I know the feeling. I've thought about converting my site to XHTML in the past, but ended targeting HTML 4.0 and taking a few features of HTML 5.0 that could wrap within backward compatible components (I wrote about it a bit in this blog post: https://yukinu.com/blog/2022/05/15/supporting-extensive...
