    Smokinī, yeah! It takes me sometimes 10-20 seconds to load a page. (congrats on the admins that they got the system to work under that heavy load!) Thatīs ridiculous!

    Has there been a newspaper article or something on devshed yesterday?

    We're optimizing some zope objects... It should be much faster in a few minutes.

    I've only recently started actually posting here (in spite of having registered over a year ago) because one of the boards I used to post at - http://coderforums.net - has gone on permanent hiatus I'm trying to convince some more folks to come over here and increase the diversity of the members (since it's mainly PHP and MySQL right now)

    i donīt like this...


    strike, did you tell all these guys to come over here because their board closed?
    please, as their "leader", teach them some behaviour! most of them are spamming the forums with stupid questions that could be answered easily using the "search" function or rtfmīing.
    why donīt we have a general "forum rules" post anywhere? i like the "newbies: how to post questions (sticky)" in the mysql forum very much. if they had to "virtually sign" these rules, i could flame them all day long. but they are on the right side, noone is forbidding it... so i am on the wrong side. should i just make my ignore-list grow like 10 people/week? (cry, whine)

    there has been more cross-posts over the last week than over the whole year 2002! triple- and quad-posts and so on. send them guys back to usenet!
    if this is about getting the most hits/second, ask me. i can put up a script that posts dumb questions every other second within minutes...

    more "dumb" posts than iīve ever read since 2000 (when i registered here)

    freedom of speech for anyone here. but dumbness should really not be rewarded. "i am too cool to read the manual" is not any way of attitude. itīs DUMBNESS!

    sorry if anyone should feel offended by this post, but since two days ago, it is really no fun anymore.

    argggl. grmpflll. going to bed now... i better do. gīnite

    No, trust me, not the same people. The only people that I've told to come here are quite well aware of forum etiquette.

    You're going to have this problem with any decent-sized board on the 'net, period. It always happens. I've seen it happen a number of times, one of which was a community I was intimately involved in but have since drastically reduced my involvement in due to the fact that the signal to noise ratio had just dropped so low that it was basically off the radar.

    Strike's right...

    Look at Slashdot and Kuro5hin. You can actually watch the overall IQ of them drop as their user base increases. It's sad, but this sort of thing is a magnet for everyone, whether they're ready for it or not.

    I think as open source grows and penetrates further into the marketplace, you get a lot of people experimenting with it as a first-time thing, whereas before you either had to be a geek and play with things like BASIC or had to pay lotsa money for textbooks and tools at Uni for your introduction. They think "hey! A free programming language / database / web server / etc." and try to jump right into it. But since a lot of these newcomers are coming from a Windoze environment, they're not used to having a lot of documentation at their fingertips and having the ability to solve their own problems (ever try to fix a serious Windoze problem that didn't end up in: OH F@!# IT! I'LL JUST REINSTALL THE DAMN THING!!!"?) They hit Google with a common stumbling block, or simply because they don't have a grounding in the basics (see the post in the Linux forum about "format" for a good example of this). They find a place like this, and get wrapped up in the community thing without realizing that by posting stupid questions, they'll get noticed alright - just not in a good way. Noise up.... signal down.

    We ought to have a test or something that people have to pass before they can join.....

    For anyone curious, the community I was talking about is/was http://www.linuxnewbie.org (LNO, now "JustLinux.com") - I was one of the early members and eventually became essentially the main moderator of the board. But the influx of people came so fast that the cluelessness quotient of the board just skyrocketed and I couldn't take it, so I more or less abandoned ship.
