could someone please have a look at what's wrong with inkscape.org?
Last night, when I went to bed, it was too slow to respond, and now it's
just plain offline (ping works, though).
As the only email from OSUOSL lately was about random reboots, maybe the
reboot didn't go well?
I just wanted to quickly introduce our new moderator ZAYNE. He seems to
be catching on pretty quickly, and visiting relatively often, which is just
He said he's planning to subscribe to the Docs list, so if he should
need some guidance and I'm not available that day, he can post here, and other
moderators can help.
Per the commitment I've made to regularly review the Around the Internet
page (because it's jam-packed with 3rd party links); my current review finds a
couple of problems I'm not sure how to handle. So I need some input from the
community on these. https://inkscape.org/en/community/inkscape-around-internet/
In the Multiple-Artist Collections section:
1 -- Wikimedia Commons - Category:Created with Inkscape
The page which is linked is showing a red-colored sort of warning about
how it's categorized. Half of the page is giving info about it. I'm not very
familiar with how the Wikipedia/Wikimedia pages are created or edited, so if
this is a problem which needs to be fixed, I can't do it. Maybe it's ok the way
it is, but I thought I would ask those who know more than I do about it.
As best as I can understand the warning info, it sounds like the page
might need some significant attention. Questions:
a -- Is this something that should be added to the Community To-Do List page
on the Inkscape website?
b -- Or maybe it's a quick fix which someone could do in the near future?
c -- Or should the item just be deleted from Around the Internet page?
d -- Or is there a better link to access the Inkscape images on Wikimedia?
2 -- Museum of Sodipodi and Inkscape About Screens
The linked page gives a 404 Not Found error. Just one question:
a -- I guess I've seen a lot of the About screen contest images in the
gallery. Is this the best URL for finding them?
https://inkscape.org/en/gallery/?q=about Or is there a better one?
Thanks for comments or suggestions :-)
As a result of my comment and concern about a long "warning" message
which was meant to remind bug reporters about what kind of info needs to be
included in the bug report,
details here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/1774404
and also, it was the first time I realized that Help menu > Report a Bug goes
directly to the Report Bugs page of the website
which in it's current state does not really perform as that kind of a function
(it's more informational than instructional), Patrick and I have overhauled that
page. We wanted to put the proposed change to the website team, before setting
Here's the proposed new page (of course the red text at the top would be
removed before going "live"):
Purposely, the link to LP is at the bottom, to force users to at least skim
through the bolded requirements before starting the new report.
Any comments, suggestions, etc. are welcomed.
PS - Just realized we probably should put some kind of inspirational "thank you"
sentence at the bottom. "Thank you and congratulations for contributing to
Inkscape" or something??
