Posing a question for the good of the Omnis community – want to move to STACK EXCHANGE?
Just coming in late to this…but here’s my tuppence:
When I search for help on SQLServer, the answers I find most useful are in stack overflow.
When I search for help on Omnis, there’s rarely anything useful from searching on Google.
So, we need all the Omnis list’s knowledge in Stack Overflow, so that Google, Bing, etc can index it and help others who work like this in the modern world.
If we want youngsters to join Omnis, this is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY.
I love the list and the way we can email each other like asking friends for help but using this instead of stack overflow is strangling the future prospects of Omnis itself.
Is there any way we can copy every email posted to the list up to stack overflow, using an API?
If that is possible, is there then a way responses posted to stack overflow could be auto-emailed to the list?
Then we can choose our own interface. Someone with the list history could even auto-upload the lot.
I’m probably dreaming, but is there any mileage in this in order to give everybody the benefits of both?
