Will the forum stay active?

Post#1 by agreimann » 22 Jun 2011, 21:05

Guys, after the 1.0 release, will the forum still be "active", or will it slow down over the summer and kinda hibernate? :)

I'll be here.

I think we're in a bit of a pre-release lull. Not a lot of new bugs/issues to resolve, not a lot of new members with questions. If/when V1.0 Final gets posted on Distrowatch, I'm sure well see an uptick. It sounds like development might slow down for a little bit after the release, but I don't think the forum will be in 'hibernation'.
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

I'll still be around but due to time constraints I might not always post. I try to peek in daily.
Sorry guys... I got to go. My girlfriend just casted "get your dirty ass into the shower" on me.
Oh and here is some naked grandpa pictures too.

I'll be dropping in daily. Today i hit all the linux magazines with our release details and am waiting for any replies. This week i will look at promoting Porteus on the net a little more. Also thinking about a monthly Porteus Press magazine for users on a mailing list. Would only take me a couple of hours each month but would be a nice touch.

Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

Not yet ... but there will be.

Yes we now have a mailing list. I will leave it inactive for now as the forum is the preferred way of communicating. There is a syndicate if you wish to receive emails from posts made here.
