I thought that I would report back on the shape of things in our little sister community at Google Plus.
Great news! Membership in the Google Plus Slackware Linux Community has now grown to that of Eleven Members!
Wait... um... Pardon my binary. That's 1011 members
Yup. We've crossed some imaginary threshold at 1000 and the community has matured in many ways, including its own candor, decorum, and usefulness that I believe compliments our LQ Support Forum here in ways that may be better addressed in an environment perhaps better suited for sharing, rather than solving.
Of course, when you're in a fix, The LQ Slackware Support Forums here really are the place to land your plane, but when you have something to share, or show and tell, our G+ Slackware Linux Community augments the world of Slackers quite nicely IMNSHO
Anyway, I had been waiting for a while to give this thread a bump. The 1k mark is indeed another indicator of utility, and relevance. One I felt should be shared here again.
The G+ Slackware Linux Community has grown organically, and started with an announcement here and a few invites. I know most members have refrained from SPAMming, although anyone interested in Slackware Linux is encouraged to participate.
We've had a couple of folks show up thinking they could SPAM us, a couple of them with some interesting stuff, yet those posts are typically whacked rather promptly, as the community has preferred a rather familial, and on-topic feel.
Anyway, please pardon me, I know I'm a loquacious sort of bonehead, and I'll leave the rest of the meandering to my fellow LQ veterans and neophytes alike.
