Any suggestions for categories for the mailing list?

Micha

My 2ct:

  • Installation
  • Plugins
  • meta (Luke in discourse)
  • migration
  • performance
  • troubleshooting
  • support (?)

Can you have categories in Google Groups?

How do you use it? in the subject like with [Category] ?

Stack overflow is a great place to ask questions, and get answers. A
mailing list is also a great place to ask questions and get answers, but
its a “closed” community. I think it would be very hard to police the
mailing list to get people to post general lucee questions to stack
overflow instead of going direct to the mailing list.

@nando to be more specific if you have a question that can be phrased as
"how do I … " then it should go to stack overflow. But then the question
is why should you go to two places to get answers when one will do?

Cheers,

The main reason why is to be more inclusive. See all the questions from
the community (larger community I guess?) over at stack overflow that are
not getting answered:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/railo

Answering questions there and posting question there opens up Lucee to a
larger audience rather than a smaller one when it is all kept in the Google
Groups.

I wouldn’t do a harsh response to a user, but if a question has a specific
answer (rather than a “it depends”) it would be good to send it to stack
overflow. I totally agree that discussions and discourse (enough! -ed) is
always welcome.

Now do you get my suggestion?

(at the moment there are no questions tagged with Lucee :frowning:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/lucee)

Why? What is a coding question? If I’m having difficulty getting the
cfschedule tag to work as I expect, is that a coding question? If I suspect
a bug and write a question here seeking clarification, is that a coding
question? It seems very open to opinion, hence I’m not sure it’s a useful,
and may be a potentially divisive distinction to make. I may do my best to
consider whether the question I’m asking is related to code or not, and
still get it wrong in someone’s opinion.

Sorry Mark, I really don’t get your suggestion. Most questions I might ask
would be related to code in some way or other. I’d prefer people feel free
to discuss anything related to Lucee here rather than censor their
questions and contributions because they think it might be related to code.
All it takes is a few sharp responses to shut nearly everyone up,
especially newcomers.

I learn stuff from others’ questions and answers, and would prefer the
flow of information was not censored to questions not related to code. If
I’m not interested, I can always ignore the thread, either as a potential
responder or learner.

Actually no. There’s hardly any people who use even Railo participating on
Stack Overflow. When ppl there ask Railo-specific questions, I directed
them to the Railo Google Group. I’ll be doing the same for Lucee.

, where I am just waiting for the Lucee category to appear! :slight_smile:

One does not need any special permissions to create a tag (oh, one
probably needs a certain number of “points” to do it, but I don’t think
it’s many).On Monday, 2 February 2015 15:59:54 UTC, Mark Drew wrote:
