Begin Rant
I'm sorry, but I have to say this: Advogato sucks. Hmm... let's see why...
  • There are no threads in discussions. Can't we get some order in here?
  • Users communicate through their diaries. Can we add a little private-message thingy at least?
  • The documentation for the site is all over the place.

C'mon. This site is about free software discussion, right? We need to make communication easier, IMHO. Yes, I know a lot of you will think "OK, then do it yourself!". The thing is, it will take me a while to get the feel of the advogato code. Also, I don't know enough of the libraries that the code uses. Other people are better suited to messing with the code.

BTW: If someone adds threads and private messaging, I have an idea: any replies to your comments will be put in your private-message list, if you wish.

If you reply to this through your diary, I probably won't see it. I don't spend all day looking at diaries. If you need to tell me something, you can use my comments form.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
