Puppy Linux Forum & PLUG Now Open!
 
I am pleased to announce the first and only PLUG which I registered today with the domain name: www.puppylinuxusersgroup.org

At this point in time I can only say that my plans for this domain name and any site I may construct are nebulous.

I can say however that there are few who can make the claim with more justification than I that I’m not part of the Puppy Linux “inner circle”. In this respect I am uniquely qualified to represent the needs of average users.

Note that as of this writing there are no websites associated with any of the DN I registered for this task therefore if you attempt to visit you will be taken to a parking page at my registrar.

I hope mods will take into consideration that I rarely post here and am unsure if this is the appropriate place for my announcement. Thank You.

EDIT 1: I have converted this from an announcement to a call for suggestions. Please see post #6 in this thread for more information. Thank you for your input

EDIT 2: On 6/4/2011 I registered an additional domain name that will point to the PLUG: www.puppyusersgroup.org

I would like to thank Puppyluvr for suggesting this name to me.


EDIT 3 ANNOUNCEMENT: On 7/26/2011 Puppy Linux Forum opened it's doors.

nah not to worry, plenty more of that, but if you wanna argue the point, be my guest.:hattip:

i'll even stay out of it:)

where art thou gn2 long ago banned for reasons only known to the then (and still around) current powers at be??

Hey you guys:

Whatever your problems might have been over at the murga site, opening another forum on Puppy will remain a futile attempt. You may compare this site here with murgalinux and you know, what I mean.

I like to be sarcastic and politically incorrect at times, where it fits and to those who deserve it.

But...there are forums for that kind of exchange abound. Does one have to exercise one's ego on a purely computer related site? Does one have to stick to a once chosen nick? Can one not behave civilized under a new nick?

Your call, I am just thinking out loud.

My idea to go forward with a PLUG was inspired by a thread started by a dev (WhoDo) at the Puppy forum titled A single voice to speak for Puppy. If you read it you’ll see he made a public call for others to make it reality.

At this point in time my idea of how to implement a PLUG is so new as to be little more than a daydream, RE: I want to do it but that’s about all I know. All I can say is that I don’t see it as a forum per se. For this particular task I don’t think a forum would cut it, forums tend to be too chaotic. I think it will take a different type of mechanism to gather and collate input from users concerning their wants and needs about the Future of Puppy Linux.

When I made this thread I didn’t expect to be calling for suggestions but now that I think about it why not? I’m open to any and all suggestions about what type of site might fit the bill. Does anyone here have any ideas about how to tackle this challenge? Maybe someone knows of a website I could use as a model or starting point? What say you?

the murga forum is done like dinner, matter of fact it was over awhile ago except perhaps to zombies

futile? dude, forums are a dime a dozen and when run the murga way inevitably implode on their own

and for the record i have nothing to do with what's going on there right now that clearly has been in the works for some time except of course to the gullible and ignorant

puppyite can speak for himself but i highly doubt he's in on it

it's a sorry mess

cheers

jonyo 06-04-2011 07:25 AM

my position stands, the fact that plug is an idea from whodo means i am totally against it or have any desire to be associated with it

and you are in lala land, best run home to your beloved murga site and deal with the unfolding implosion

puppyite 06-04-2011 10:16 AM

jonyo,

I can’t speak with you here. Also OT conversations in threads are strictly (how I read it) forbidden per forum rules.

I have enabled receipt of email from forum members. To send me email login, click my username in any of my posts, then click: Send email to puppyite

Or visit my site and use the Contact page.

jonyo 06-04-2011 05:57 PM

in the interest of puppy having any real credibility from this point forward and at the risk of fading into oblivion

all ties with the murga forums MUST be severed in the clearest possible way by anyone who is serious about promoting pup in a positive way

regardless of who is able to offer alternative options or forums with democracy

here is an example
http://blog.mageia.org/en/2011/06/01/mageia-1/

the murga forums have been a joke to the mainstream linux world for some time and at best, give puppy a limiting popularity

not to mention many who wouldn't even consider pup due to the dysfunctional and pathetic nature of the main forum

here is some history

I read the open governance page, in some ways it’s similar to the proposal I made for a governing council for Puppy Linux. My idea was soundly rejected by the powers that be and in retaliation for my suggestion a lynch mob of the regulars was permitted to attack me.

But what I’m calling for now is ideas about how to gather and collate input from Puppy Linux users. That’s very different from governing the path of a distro, I’m not a dev and I don’t have a distro.

XavierP 06-05-2011 03:49 AM

Clearly, a number of you are unhappy with specific people in the Puppy community. That's fine, however the comments are massively off-topic and should be raised on a blog rather than a forum. If you wish to continue discussing the direction for your new forum that's fine, but rehashing problems encountered on a different forum or community isn't something we want to see here.

puppyite 06-05-2011 06:10 AM

XavierP,
Speaking only for myself I can say that in future I will have no problem whatsoever with staying on topic.

jonyo 06-05-2011 06:46 AM

hey puppyite, frankly, i'm disgusted with puppy and want nothing to do with the distro in the state it is currently in,

they made the problems and they have to fix them

waste of time for me

i'd have to see a clear change in direction from the creator (or others) to have any future interest

as far as i'm concerned, computerbob and others were right on the money with what they had to say, all of it years ago

computerbob said it best

they can have fun and play their games with each other, one day some folks might get serious

good luck

ps apologies to the mod(s) here for having broken any rules, i did not read them,

in some forums you deal with what you have whereas a positive forum takes care of itself

best for all of linux, that folks know or have some idea what they might be getting involved in, with any particular distro
