Is this chart ok?



  • chart.jpg

    Hello guys! Me again, with my usual annoying topic.
    A picture worth 1000 words, so is it said.
    This are the numbers from the forum. They show the number of posts / category.
    Everybody sees like me something unusual, or is just me?
    Isn't the discrepancy to big? (and I'm pointing towards MARKETING vs. SUPPORT)
    What is stopping us to balance the things a little bit?



  • It's the number of posts per category, right?

    Wouldn't say I see something unusual. For forums like this I'd assume the biggest part is about people trying to get help, so no wonder the Support catagory has the most postings.



  • @Ingo Correct! I will edit that in post right away!
    What I see is that something is not working and to the financial side of things is not given to much of attention, maybe at all.
    At least that is what I see from these numbers.
    Maybe is just I don't consider the fact that more people tend to get involved in a discussion when they have the same problem, hence the big number.
    Ja, but how come so little attention in supporting UT financially is given?
    I want through my posts to motivate people, especially the ones that are not developers. We can still help, other than just reporting bugs.
    I'm not a marketing guy, never was, never dreamed to be.
    But I want this project to grow, I really want!

    NOTHING! Absolutely nothing....

    Not withstanding the obvious difference due to daily interest and immediate help needed to get the devices going, I actually consider the relatively high number of Support threads/posts to be a positive thing. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that if the posts were to be under further investigation, the count of questions/requests by newcomers would be high, indicating that information flow could be improved to accommodate them and make it easier for potential UT users to get started and not to post similar questions because the new procedures will include the reoccurring and related questions or known issues.



  • @3T_Ed A constructive answer!

    Without having checked what kind of topics actually are in the Marketing category, but how come you draw this conclusion from just the chart? I don't see any financial aspects in those numbers. I'd expect the Marketing category to have discussions about spreading the word about UT and to get more people to install/use it. (I could be wrong, though, as I can't remember reading something there; I typically just look at the unread topics and their titles, not necessary which category they were posted in).
