Probably, but I think it is a work of art. If I could close it, I would.
That is just my opinion.

3 of the 5 above options deal with money. No comment.

As far as the last fundraiser, I donated a good bit, but I cannot donate any regular way, besides theta, so, ... idunno.

Note: it takes 2 minutes for your competitors to suck up this info here. They make money. I am money. I often dislike reading the aftermath, but sometimes it is like tomorrow.

I personally would add the "thank you for nut thing" image, but I should really not be intentionally insulting. So in conclusion: the article you wrote is just fine..

Most people would tell whoever said whatever told you did a good job.

Conclusion
It is well worded and could be worded better, take very much care in your words, as it is insulting. This is acceptable. Thank You.

Metallicow added a comment to T11343: Quick Action search functionality.

I used the quick search a lot when blender first implemented it as a plugin. Would be nice if this could also be implemented as a python widget where the programmer just specifies WxH of the autocomplete box and all the rest of the logic is built in etc...

I agree the slideshow should be randomized so as not to start arguements about who might have won. It should be viewed that all artists selected won 1st(fav) place for the month/release.

Metallicow added a comment to T10331: Manual inventory 2019: What needs updating..

Fair enough. Not sure right at this moment, but I would guess PyQt should be able to load an *.epub into a simple doc view/docker without extra libraries. Unless somebody else has already written a docs plugin...

Metallicow added a comment to T10331: Manual inventory 2019: What needs updating..

On the main page all I see is download in epub.
"You can download this manual as an epub here."
Since things are being built with sphinx now, a download link for a zip archive with loose html for the docs is still missing.
Normally when user updates version, they sometimes grab the offline manual with it. For example if offline or a portable version such as on a thumb drive.
This would probably be built with the buildbot or manually triggered upon release etc for a version.

Thank You! *42 to the 42nd power... and then some more. Everyone Thanks You! This was long awaited. Many of us can now retire Photoshop. Our workflow just improved to that point.

Metallicow added a comment to M131: Discuss Toolbox customization .

I could find this useful in certain situations. For example if my workspace perspective is themed for doing certain things....
Im my application, I have it on a TODO list. It isnt high priority for me. In wxPy AUI when the tools run off the screen there is a dropdown button that appears, so yea it seems to be a bit of extra work for little reward. Just my opinion tho. I do like customization.

This looks like a nice way to display that stuff. This is going to be an option right? I/user's might still prefer the Blender style startup dialog for example......

Oh ok. I just sent a pull request of the files that didnt change from my project. If that helps plug in missing pages, then it is there to review and work from. about 20% of what I did changed so I didnt include those files. Thanks for the work so far.

I had did about 60% back when I started, then stopped at a point. I'll have to dig that out of the corner and revisit it now as to what else got updated from diff drop. ...So fork scotts repo and continue work and send pull requests, right? ...Thats the plan of action at the moment?

@scottpetrovic - Also, I'm not sure where you are from, but I'm in the USA, so taxes and non-profits and such are different in the Netherlands than here. Boud, being the project maintainer could best answer these questions as I am not a local.

"Is there a minimum amount we want to specify for bug fixes and features. Someone doesn't send an email wanting a bug fixed for $10"

Hi @Metallicow ,

My reply to you on the forum might have come across rude or aggressive , I apologize for that.
I appreciate your effort to help port the wiki. And thank you for the github repo.

Well, I've managed to compile a indented(like the wikitree) list of page links with a few options in a python script.
Good News:

  • It can export pages mediawiki syntax to filename.mediawiki files.
  • It can export pages to pdf.
