If you have a PHP script what is the problem with 11 entries? You set it up once and data just shows up as it is uploaded by people.
I don’t follow you there. Do you expect Haiku team to put up a link to an “in construction” site?
Hey everyone there is going to be something there soon, BTW it’s an independent effort so we don’t know when it does go up and if it doesn’t serve malware.
Show that you have something first, then ask for endorsement.
I think that you believe Haiku devs don’t want to work with you on purpose. That is not the case. It has been said multiple times that the more things community does the better, because the project itself (with its scarce resources) doesn’t have to do it then.
What kind of feedback do you expect on the thing that does not exist yet?
In my opinion the reason your hardware database didn’t take off is low visibility. If you had prepared an easily accessible website, more people would send their data. @PulkoMandy’s post is case in point: he wasn’t even aware you can explore the database, and he wouldn’t send data to a closed one.
The biggest problem I see with your knowledge base is that it looks seriously outdated (so the assumption is content is outdated as well even if that is not true) and that adding new articles is hard.
Correct me if I’m wrong:
I need to send an HTML file to you to get it up on your site? With specific HTML for alerts? And then if there is a mistake I need to contact you again?
That is not easy.
You can argue that git is not easy either but today GitHub offers web editor, so you don’t even have to get out of the browser to add an article to official Haiku site.
Sometimes you need to let go.
Maybe the articles should be migrated to an official site. On the other hand official Haiku site doesn’t feature translations and I don’t think it will nor it should.
Maybe the problem is language specific domain which suggests it is only relevant to German speaking people?
Maybe it doesn’t solve people’s problems anymore?
Link to your site is here: https://www.haiku-os.org/community/links/. I agree it’s not easy to find, but where should it be then? On the main page? Why not a link to my site in that case?
I think the best course of action here would be to create community run international Haiku site/hub, endorsed by the main project, perhaps using @dwt’s haiku.zone domain. That could be then linked as main source for international resources. This hub could then link to content like news from smaller, language-specific websites, while articles would be hosted directly, and it would promote smaller projects. Official Haiku site is not really a place for that.
That’s a lot of negativity there, I am aware of that. Please don’t get upset These are just my thoughts what the issues are and how they can be solved.
I don’t intend to drive you off, because your work is needed. You just have wrong attitude about it.
I know that it’s hard to see your personal project die or get absorbed by something bigger.
