Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

^ Honestly, that's what drew me to #!. I fell in love with both the distro & the community, & in my limited experience, I've come to the conclusion that the quality & support of the community can really make or break a distro  smile

^ The Community might be a little more stringent on the Arch Forums than here, but imo that's not a downfall. There's a Wiki... USE IT!  wink

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

Kinda ironic, how they seem to guard their secret forum inner sanctum from the profane eyes of the unwashed masses, almost like how proprietary software companies guard the source code  hmm  anyone else find that a bit . . . odd?  devil

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

Has nothing to do with "keep out noobs", they simply wish to keep things factual. That's why all (and only) offtopic threads are "hidden", much like in IRC where you have separate #offtopic channels.

And you -are- missing out. We all use at least one application from the Arch "Community Contributions" forum; ranger, SpaceFM, sxiv, etc..

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

I've noticed for years how many Archers are on this forum, for all they go on about the distro they sure pick this as the "place" to be.

Personally, I reject using Arch primarily because of their forum "Architude", it may very well be technically excellent, but there is an old saying "You are known by the company you keep".


There's a reason you separate military and the police. One fights the enemies of the state, the other serves and protects the people. When the military becomes both, then the enemies of the state tend to become the people.

Re: Completely Off Topic Chat

IMO you can't judge the Arch community as a whole, simply because there isn't "one". The Arch devs are mainly on the mailing list, the wiki people are mostly on the wiki, and the forum people are mostly on the forums.

Will you stop using Debian because of forums.debian.net ? (which for the record is not a good comparison at all).
