this forum is beyond repair. let's pray to god for a comet, wipe out the human civilization and start from scratch.

the manjaro team is actively working on your dream.

the first new thing to come is the server and webpage.
the next thing will be the forum.
the last things will be the wiki, repo, etc.

you can expect the first thing to come rather soon, but i cannot give you any estimates about the rest.
just be patient... we all have to be.

I thought I'd make a post in honor of the half year date for this thread - only to discover that it's now 7 months old rather than 6..

I still miss the recent topics functionality, it's such a convenient way to read a forum for a casual user - these days my participation is pretty much limited to:

1: Log onto the forum
2: Cross my fingers and hope the Recent Topics have started working again.
3: Sigh..
4: Check the 10 newest posts at the bottom of the main page, hoping something catches my eye.
5: Leave and hope that tomorrow will be the day.

I still love manjaro to bits, it's still my main OS, it's awesome in so many ways, but I really miss the community as the forum is hard to use for me these days.

Question: How do I make myself useful in regards to fixing the problem?

I've got rusty programming skills, used to do 6502 assembly back in the days, some C++ and Turbo Pascal and recently a tiny bit of C#. I've got zero database programming experience, but I've got strong analytic skills and a nack for playing with servers, so I tend to solve problems eventually.

In all fairness solving a problem like this is probably way above my head, but I won't mind sponsoring someone brighter than me with coffee and a bunch of pizzas or whatever helps?

Anyway, let me know if I can be of assistance in one way or another.

you have to realize everything here is run by volunteers who have priorities in life. some of them have families to feed, loans to repay, divorces to file, slutty girlfriends to spy on, mother-in-laws to kill etc. Give them some time to catch up, or at least wait till manjaro becomes a dead project before you express your disappointment . don't put too much pressure on them :)

I'm fully aware that it's non profit, all volunteer work and I'm nothing but grateful for it. Please don't misread my post as some sort of demand, I have absolutely no right to demand anything from any of you and will be sad if I come across that way.

My intent were to give the thread a 6 months bump. I'll probably do so again next spring. If that's putting too much pressure on things I appologize in advance.

Another intent were to offer my assistance. My skillset might not be ideal for solving the forum issue, but I might be able to help out in another way? Spying on your slutty girlfriends sounds like something I could get into..  :o :P ;D

thanks for the offer!

2 team members have tried to fix the forum multiple times but did not succeed. in fact, by trying to solve the "double thread / timeout" problem they created the "recent topics" problem.
i do not blame them at all. in contrast, i am thankful for them trying.

in the last couple of months, nobody tried to fix any forum problems anymore. everybody is waiting for the new server (with a new homepage). after that switch the manjaro web development team will start working on a new forum. let's just hope it will be better in any way than the existing forum.


personally, i use the "unread" button next to the "recent topics" button to read the forum. but i agree that "recent topics" was nicer and more comfortable to use.

I would like that the "Ignore User" function worked when reading recent posts https://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?action=recent as well. I even would like it more if everybody posted in a way that there would be no need for this function at all.

If you keep doing something and you get the same bad results, but then you do it again and again, you should stop and reconsider what you do next. 

As mentioned, early in this post, this works just fine.

Constructive griping :) Like constructive criticism with more "feelings"
