I am not allowed to post in the RFP section.
Who is allowed to post into that section?
I asked a question and nobody answered.
I seems that there is no community here.
However good maybe your cryptocoin, as long as it is not baked by a community, it is useless.
As we have pointed out in multiple places, we aren't really doing the RFPs at this time. I think only forum admins can post new things there, but it really doesn't matter since we are not using them.
Just getting mad and claiming there is no community (a statement that is clearly not true) is unlikely to get you a better response. Sometimes we miss a question, so asking again might work better.
Why you arent doing RFP?
And who are you? How many are you?
Is this information transparant somehow?
I mean, how many are the active members of this community?
Where can I see this number?
Below is the most active member. He is last seen almost two month ago,
sambiohazard was last seen: Jan 13, 2017
Is there a way I can see this "last seen" field aggregated, at least from the people who allows it?
1) Answered in the forums.
2) First part answered in the docs, not sure if the second is mentioned there, but you can find out pretty easily by taking note of answers here and in slack.
3) Again, it's in the docs or can be figured out by you with some work.
4) Yet again, this is something you can answer yourself by looking at posts here, in irc and on slack.
5) As above.
A lot of people have migrated to Slack now so the forums are a bit quieter. I think I last saw Sam there a couple of days ago, so he's still around. Your tone is quite aggressive and it seems to me that you think we owe you answers to questions that you could figure out yourself with a bit of work. Do you expect someone to trawl through the docs or enumerate member lists for you? That's rather arrogant. Everything about Decred, its governance and direction is documented at docs.decred.org or wiki.decred.org (which we're in the process of moving). So go have a look there first. Then ask questions. If you feel like they're not being answered fast enough, come to Slcak (decred.slack.com) and you will see how helpful the community is. I suggest you be polite though; they're not particularly fond of demanding people...
I concluded to just one question , which you didnt answered (you didnt answer to the previous questions too, as long as the "rtfm" is not an answer at all).
The question is:
Is there a way I can see the "last seen" field of the members aggregated somewhere all together, at least from the members that allows this field to be visible?
Actually, RTFM is an answer. We don't write docs because we're bored. But to answer your question explicity, no, there is not. And if you're going to use the 'last seen' field as an indicator of community engagement, you're as bad as people who use 'lines of code' as a productivity benchmark.
I am not aware of such a feature in the forum software we use and I'm not sure I've ever seen such a feature in any forum.
Is there some reason you want to know who the active members? You can see profiles for everyone on the forum if you want and slack does (I think) show usage numbers). Beyond that, I don't really know why you would need better numbers about our community.
Because however good maybe your cryptocoin, as long as it is not baked by an active community, it is useless.
I am not investing my wealth and my time in cryptocurrency code , I want to invest it in cryptocurrency communities.
Because money is above all something that a community trusts. So the better and the more active the community is, and the stronger the trust, the better the cryptocurrency is.
Thats why I am asking the activity statistics of this community.
If you are hiding them or if you dont want to aggregate them in a single place for the wannabe investors to watch them, this seems suspicious to me.
We all believe community is important, but to suggest that we are hiding numbers is not a great way to get help. Especially since the numbers you are asking for a not an exact thing. In any open source community people come and go making exact numbers something you can't really come by. Joining slack would give you a better sense of how many people are in the community and that's really all I can suggest.
I'm making a call for those interested to help on Facebook! Pm me
