The obvious solution is to improve the docs, but that's a work in
progress already.

It's a pity the mailing list software can't monitor the messages, and
automatically re-post question messages that go unanswered.  Questions
could be flagged with a Q: header or whatever.

2000-06-13 Thread Malcolm C. Mallette

Zope is the worst excuse of a program I have ever encountered.

Re: [Zope] zope as program

2000-06-13 Thread George Donnelly

as a newbie myself i can say that i experienced some considerable
frustration in getting zope up and going and using it. (i still am!) the
documentation and mailing list support is mediocre so far at best,
especially when it comes to newbie questions.

so i can understand where you're coming from.

**BUT** zope kicks ass. so just give it a little time. its worth it.

it only takes a moment for you gods to respond to easy newbie questions and
help point us in the right direction. in other areas where i approach god
status i do it all the time. it falls under the heading of being a good
community member. 

the fact is that the zope documentation sucks bigtime and is not easy to
search. there are lots of ambiguities.

if people really want zope to be successful and reach a wide audience i
encourage you to think about this.

 People are usually annoyed about newbie questions, since they have been
 answered a thousand times, but noone is willing to search the mailing list
 archives. I usually find 70% of the time the answers to my questions there.
