Hi WAS Forum users,
Tiest van Gool is suggesting to create a PC-UI forum in the WAS area here:
<i>Based on my latest experiences I would like to see a new forum within WAS regarding PC UI. The possibilities within this area are using BSP but do definately not require BSP knowledge to achieve results within the SAP solutions, from a UI perspective, see Blueprint. In my opinion this is a very promising but not understood area. Please let me know what your guys thoughts are. Tiest</i>
Question to you that you are using this forum. Do you share his view. Our list of forums is getting long and I don't want to open one if there is no strong demand.
Let me know, Mark.
Hi Mark/ Tiest,
I too appreciate having a seperate forum for PC UI Applications. But as Mark said we need to have a strong requirement for the same. I agree with that.
I too can prepare a web log for the same as I have been working with PC CRM since over a year and have done enhancements and modifications too.
I am sure that you didnt want an essay for a response but .
Is it not possible to put in a new forum on a trial basis? By this I mean, create the forum, monitor its usage by amount of posts that are directly relating to the topic of the forum and if after say 3 months the forum is clearly a success then leave it running otherwise block the ability for people to post new threads with a message recommending the users to post to another forum with there question. Then after a span of time archive (or transfer it to another forum) the content leaving it searchable.
The reason I say this is that I dont know if asking people if we should create a new forum wont necessarily give you a clear indication if something is viable or not. If I had to give you a strait yes or no answer, I personally would say no as I dont think that the Tiests suggestion for the forum would be of much use to me, but thats mostly because I dont use the technology But if the forum was created I might learn more about it and gain an interest and be inclined to post messages asking for advice in the forum . Catch 22.
Perhaps another way to determine the potential interest would be to get Tiest to submit a web log on the topic discussing the technology and see what sort of response\feed back he gets.
An example of this working for me is the Unification, Connectivity and Object Based Navigation form. Until I read a weblog on creating a basic unification example this forum had little interest to me. After learning a little about the technology I now regularly frequent the forum and gain benefit from its presence on SDN.
