Quick guide for the search
X


  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

Is there anything on Facebook like this forum, or are people just commenting on Roskilde updates and that's it?

There is nothing like this on FB. People are commenting on RF's updates and writing their own updates (wich are commented on by Roskilde and other poeple). There is no structure or forum-like qualites.

There is also less action here from the officials!, and some of the former very active writers are silent. In my Roskildegroup I`m probably the only person who is not on facebook.

Okay, the easiest way to follow the progress this year, since this forum does not properly support cellphones will be through one of the following links:

facebook.com/coffincamp
instagram.com/coffincamp
twitter.com/coffincamp

Noer: That post was concerning the progress of the Coffin Camp build/equipment this year since pictures seems to be a bit hard to upload.

Fair enough, this is just an examble of the tendency that seems to have influenced this forum, and I think we should have some kind of response from RF officials regarding its status/future. I might just be old and bitter, but here I used to be able to get warmed up for the festival to come. icon_biggrin.gif

Well, honestly, we would gladly upload at the forum, but since we do not plan too much in advance when we'll be building, and due to the place we got to build it at, we cannot be bothered to save the pictures, get home, transfer them to the computer, edit them and then upload them individually on the forum.

For this year's build it is simply much easier just to use a single app on iPhone while we're building.

The harsh truth, in my opinion, is that internet forums are pretty much dead for any subject that doesn't explicitly invite in-depth nerdy discussion. Of course, Facebook is on its slow but certain path to dodo-land too by now.

But while it's still here... Facebook was never intended for public discussions like the ones that can be found here. Anything that's worthwhile reading will be buried under tons of three word posts a la "I can't wait", "Book this band", "Your opinion sucks", "Hate that artist", etc. Mostly written in less neutral words. icon_razz.gif

Some people have tried to "revolutionize" (or just evolve) the whole forum platform, but mostly it's turned into basically the same format - and more importantly "content" - as Facebook. Don't know if anyone's had a real look into what it is about all the outdated media like forums and newsgroups that actually invite actual discussion when compared to the so-called "social" media.

As for myself, this is my second consecutive year of Roskilde break following 19 years since 1994. Not entirely voluntary, so mostly been staying away from this forum to avoid not-going-depression. icon_eek.gif

Is the forum needed, though? I think it is, because the alternative truly sucks for most purposes - even if (or because) it's more popular. And could/should it be improved? Certainly. Maybe consider some way of hosting it externally to the main site, if it's the Typo3 integration that makes it difficult.

Thank you, Kaneda, for sharing your thoughts on this issue, I felt a bit pissed off.
I am aware that tecnologi drives us in certain directions, but I`m also worried that we all miss something in the process.
This year I`ve helped someone who asked for idees on how to build a pole for their campflag, by searching back in this forum. Some years back I`ve followed the interesting theads on how to build boomboxes, with great admiration, and just for the sake of feeling part of it all.
Commitment.

I may be getting old and bitter too, but to me it looks like the idea of a forum where you post something and check back a day later for responses is just too slow for the younger generation. It's not a problem of the software, it's their short attention span. They need instant action and instant gratification in the form of likes or upvotes, because tomorrow it will all be long gone from their fb walls and forgotten.

btw I agree that fb is totally worthless as a place to have a normal discussion, and is dying anyways. The festival should not bet on it as a way to connect to its audience in the future. I give it max 2 more years.

Perhaps the festival (or the hardcore forum people) should look into reddit as an alternative. I noticed multiple people have already tried to make subreddits, but nothing succesful yet..perhaps if it is promoted here.

One of the sites I visit the most is a football forum. And I'm mostly there for the general section of it (as opposed to the football section). Lots of great banter it could be the same here.
