EA User Group - www.eausergroup.org
« on: April 05, 2005, 10:56:57 pm »


Hello,

we have set up an "EA User Group" website, a place for all the EA users where they can easily post their Add-Ins, code generation templates, software tools etc. etc.

Read-only access is available to everyone, in order to post or participate in the discussions, you will need to sign in. Just send an e-mail to register@eausergroup.org with your name and e-mail address and you will receive your username and password shortly.

Please have a look at http://www.eausergroup.org

Any comments, questions or suggestions are most welcome!

Bruno

Can you please describe why you think it's necessary to have a(nother) separate site ?  

I'm not trying to be difficult or negative, but I am concerned about the possibility of dividing users across multiple sites, ie. dilution of content.

I think that this site is an excellent repository of knowledge.  Maybe there features that could be added to make it more valuable ... ?

Thanks,
Steven.

I did register right away, given the criticality of EA for my current assignment and the excellent features of it in general.

However, I do join the question made previously: why was this necessary?

Didn't this forum do a good job already, and couldn't it be extended if need be? Or should Sparx gradually stop effort in this forum and move to the one of the user group instead?
I know I would if I where them, there's no point in doubling effort.

It does indeed increase the burden of where finding what information.

Except that link target does not exist (currently?).

Checking on the General board, seems as if the earliest message "head" is 8th of Feb THIS YEAR - so everything before that is lost :-(( or at least inaccessible.

My YaBB "Postings count" is currently 332, but if I do a "Show all postings" from my profile YaBB only shows 244, so it looks as if it's lost nearly 100 of my posts.

I wonder how many Thomas has lost ?

The other boards seem OK.

Come on Sparx - surely you have backups of all that earlier stuff ???

I guess not. Crash is crash and merging an old backup with all new posts will surely be a horror.

Hello Everyone,

It appears that our restore to the general board was incomplete.  Until now we were unaware of the problem.  We are currently investigating how we can restore the lost posts from our backups.

This will be done with as little further disruption to the forum as possible.

We will provide updates when we can.

Until then, sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Regards,

Simon McNeilly

Hi!

I tried to join the EA User Group some time ago but until now i did not get any username or password.

The latest reply i received from the administrator of the EA User Group was:

Thank you. We have received your e-mail and will respond shortly.
In the meantime, please feel free to visit EA User Group website at www.EAUserGroup.org.

How can i join in? I really would like to give a try to the C++ AddIn project

Cheers  :)
